I must take a moment to say that I support the Black Lives Matter movement. I don’t feel qualified to speak further. I am educating myself. I am listening, reading, watching, and allowing change in my own perception.  I vow to continue learning and realize this is a lifetime practice. I will seek more diverse social groups, I will search for more BIPOC artists to support through my business. Let’s talk, let’s help each other grow, let’s be the change.  Books on my reading/listening list:  (Consider ordering books from a Black owned business - here is a list from the Literary Hub)   Me and White Supremacy, by Layla F Saad How to be An Antiracist, by Ibram X.

Sharing inspiration

       Hello Friends!  I have been wanting to share some of the things I have been enjoying these quarantine days.  These activities are keeping me feeling engaged, alive, at peace, and inspired.  I hope they will bring something positive to you as well.      I am fortunate to live near a park, complete with trees, hills, trails and natural beauty!  I found a secret spot that I sit in for hours  I can see no people, no signs of people and rarely hear a passer by, there is such peace in this place   For my inner peace and sanity, my favorite yoga studio, Unfold Yoga Portland is offering many of their yoga classes online!  I love this...
