• Waste and our soul’s hungers

    Every time I go out in nature, I listen more deeply to the voice of the earth compelling us to remember another way of living more lightly on HER body. But even though I am sensitive to this message, it has been difficult to write and compose these emerging thoughts into a cohesive whole without feeling the weight of this…

  • On finding the right container to grow

    Dear wanderers, It is spring and nature is bursting with life. And I realize I haven’t shared anything with you in over two months. It feels strange, like part of my life has been quietly simmering inside my heart. It also feels natural. How often we force ourselves to produce and thus ignore the rhythms of our natural world.

  • Beyond Decor | The Soul of your Space

    “As with all my work, whether it’s a leaf on a rock or ice on a rock, I’m trying to get beneath the surface appearance of things. Working the surface of a stone is an attempt to understand the internal energy of the stone.”
 ~Andy Goldsworthy We need to illuminate the way we engage with our home, environment, landscape, planet.…

  • Journey to the Sacred. Finding Sanctuary on the Inca Trail.

    My ancestors, like many Indigenous traditions around the world, felt an ancestral pull to honor the body and spirit of the earth and build in harmony with the land. It is this sacred connection to land and cosmos that inspired them to design an architecture that flows not against, but rather, in harmony with the rhythms of the earth and…
