chaotic sanctuary

or sanctuarily chaotic

or both

I'm still here. We are still here. All is good. Just insanely busy.

I don't have anything particularly mindful or illuminating or funny to say.

Just hello

And I miss you all. I haven't even been visiting, there's so much going on.

But it's all good.

So much to do here.

There are still 4 baskets of clean clothes that were moved from the pink and purple house a month ago and have yet to be folded and put away.
I guess maybe they're not too clean anymore.

Ah lah

But drawing a Giant Dancing Ganesh on the living room wall and wandering in and tending my new beautiful garden is more important than clean clothes.
Or grocery shopping for that matter.
bad mommy

Still it's all good

I love my new home. It's beautiful. It's becoming Home. It's Coming Home.
The kids love it.
There are at least a million of them here all the time and every one is happy.

Yogini Shannon and Jordana are right around the corners and I get to see them all the time. Some big wig psychiatrist at Stanford wrote an article that said when we women hang together it increases our serotonin levels and helps us live longer and a daily dose of girlfriends is just as important to our health as exercise and a good diet.

So there you go.

I bet visiting blogland has the same effect as having coffee or wine or lunch with our sister-wives/girlfriends. I know it makes me smile and lifts me up. I wouldn't stop blogging anymore than I'd stop my Prozac.

And that's saying a lot.

It's been raining for 10 days straight and everything's crazy green.
There's a promise of sun today so I'll make another promise of picts tomorrow.



  1. Kiss, kiss. Yep. Here I am. I have missed you so but the thought of you tending your house and garden make me happier than anything.

  2. It is great to hear from you, to know you are well and happy and the kids are doing fine and you have your tribe right around the corner in your new home! Looking forward to a picture of your dancing Ganesh on the wall :) XO

  3. I'm so glad to hear that everyone is happy! Please post pics of the new house, too. It sounds lovely!

  4. Sigh. I'm so happy you're here.

  5. Love that you are happy in your new space.

    Love that research about the benefits of good girlfriends. Don't doubt it at all...


  6. Hey there! So happy to see you and hear all is well and I bet the million happy kids underfoot are good for serotonin levels too!

  7. What is it about laundry? Take care :)

  8. Ah I'm so glad you live in my blog street.

    And I would love to see that Ganesh.

  9. So lovely to hear good things from you.

so... wadaya think?

Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
