I am {the} stargardener; I cycle like the moon; I believe in the power of word lists and color. I believe there are spaces where magic is in the air … where secret message whispers can be heard by anyone listening. Those spaces for me right now include: [professionally] sparkly daring my-self to expand my creative planning offerings + [personally] grateful for marked healing within my MS-body; increasing my exercise routines.

  • This web site features my journal-planning pages + my creative planning process.

Love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time withstand many ending, and many many beginnings – all in the same relationship. -Clarissa Pinkola Estés
