That whispering heart of yours

We are searching for what’s perfect. We want to be the perfect partner, parent, citizen, friend, and we want the perfect career and the perfect life – but what’s left of you at the end of the day? We push ourselves to fit the mould of what life should be. What we think other people […]


The next week back from the desert has been a hard adjustment. I think the first few days back I was just jet lagged and getting back into the LA spin of things whereas this week has felt extremely raw. I feel my heart really opened in a massive way in the desert, expanded and […]
