About

This site is mostly an exploration of mindfulness–why it matters, how to practice it, and how to appreciate the ways it shows up in our lives whether we want it or not.

The site’s tagline, “Life is a narrative we make, or not, with beginnings and endings that only occur in our little fictions,” is by Jim Corder, from his book Yonder: Life on the Far Side of Change

Jim was a West Texas storyteller who became a mentor of mine when I went to graduate school in an attempt to discover how to make my life and work more meaningful. I’m still trying to figure that out. And I’m still using writing, yoga, community arts activism, and story-work as my ways to learn, teach, and do it.
