Desert Rat


I have taken a bit of time away from the road to be a mom. A rat mom specifically. In the past four years I’ve had the privilege of adopting and caring for seven beautiful little rats. Anyone who has been a rat parent knows how much love they bring to your world, but also…

I had a conversation with a stranger the other day. She said something that I’ve heard many times before but never really put much thought into, until now. Her exact words were “We’re at the top of the heap”. Most of the time it’s said “We’re at the top of the food chain” but either…

I recently went to a meditation workshop. I have a really hard time shutting my brain off and just ‘being’. I also have a really difficult time disconnecting from all the pain and suffering on Earth.
