There is a Field

rumi poem

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.”

Poem by Rumi, image by Elephant Journal

Enjoying Kathy Freston

I’ve heard Kathy Freston’s name a lot over the years, but I never really looked into her. This week I decided to check-out her Instagram page (@kathyfreston). I really enjoyed it! If you are interested in great food, good times, green smoothies and furry friends — you might like it too.

Shawn Stevenson & Tom Bilyeu Transforming Mindsets

Shawn Stevenson

I really enjoyed this interview. It’s Shawn Stevenson (from The Model Health Show) asking Tom Bilyeu all sorts of questions. They cover a very broad range of topics. If a few questions don’t resonate with you, I’m sure some of them will. Also, have some patience in the beginning or start the interview 5 minutes in, because it begins with a few words about sponsors. After you bypass that, it’s great.

Happy Anniversary Lovers!

heart cake anniversary

Here we are. At a pretty big milestone.

Lots of ups and downs. Somedays were easier than others.

I admit, I was to blame for all those moments where it seemed like the relationship was losing its magic, as well as its momentum.

I’m so sorry for any promises I may have broken, or any moment when I simply didn’t show up like I should have.

But here we are! And here I am. Ten years later.

Yes, you read that right. TEN YEARS later.

Happy 10th anniversary! Sunday Is For Lovers began September 8th, 2007.

It’s kind of a long story, but it was originally an accountability blog for my creative projects.

When I was living in New York, I’d have Sunday brunch with my friends Genevieve & Charlie. We would discus personal projects, ideas and things we wanted to create, that weren’t part of our professional careers. (I was doing creative work and making art full time, but not usually my own art. You can see what I mean via this link.) During brunch I would discus my ideas and my progress, and they would hold me accountable for them. I loved this routine! But it was short lived.

Genevieve & Charlie decided they wanted to move to Los Angeles. Great news for them, but not good news for me. I was losing two best-ies, as well as my creative accountability partners. When I expressed my concern to Genevieve, she came up with a great idea. She convinced me that I should blog. That I could use it as a vehicle to help me stay on track, and a way to stay in touch with them.

It sounded like a great idea. I thought maybe I could use it keep to contact with other friends and family at the same time.

Well, the blog pretty much became an eclectic journal from day one, and then a positive news feed for a while, and then an eclectic journal again. I never used it as a creative accountability log, but it has been a fantastic way to stay in contact with both family and friends.

And to my surprise, I have made lots of new friends online as well! So many amazing things and wonderful people have blossomed out of this blog. The relationships I’ve made through Sunday Is For Lovers have lasted for years, and continue to this day.

This blog has been such a big part of my life. I know it will continue to grow roots and limbs and blossoms. Sometimes it hits a lull (because I get too busy with work and fall into blogging dry spells), but I’m certain a major upswing is on the horizon. I can feel it in my bones. So look out for that!

And… I’ll tell you a little secret. I started another blog on September 8th — this year. It’s not ready to share publicly, yet. I’ll reveal it soon. It’s going to be my weekday blog, to compliment this Sunday blog. For anyone that is interested in lots more posts, or weekday updates — this new blog will be for you.

Happy 10th anniversary! Thanks for reading this blog, and thanks for being a friend.

Thanks for being part of this crazy journey. It’s only the beginning.
