Image quote by author Jackson Kiddard Today is September 30. I write this from my historic town of Beaufort by the Sea, in North Carolina. It’s pouring down rain. Florida has just been through a historic hurricane. We offer prayers and help as we can for those who have been devastated Devastation comes in many forms. Call it chaos. My latest obsession on the spiritual journey is understanding the role chaos can play and is guaranteed to play in our lives. Be it personal relationships, broken hearts, hurricanes, war, threat of nuclear annihilation, death of a loved one, losses, financial or ot ..read more

Six Ways to Pause + Honor the Summer Solstice

Tapping Into the Intelligence of the Universe Greetings Honoring you today and the Wheel of the Year which attunes you to the cycles and rhythms of life’s sacred flow. There’s a natural cycle of life: it begins, it sustains, it lets go. Nurses witness the cycle of birth, life in between, death. The first breath, the period of inhalations and exhalations we call life, and then the last breath. By attuning to this cycle and learning to align with it, we experience ourselves within the natural flow of which we are a part, and tap into the underlying fabric that connects all life. When the Sun “S ..read more

A Secret Birthday Takeover

This is what nurses do. We care. A whole lot. Until we can’t care anymore. We work. A whole lot. Until we can’t work anymore. We suffer. We strive. We give. We forget to live. I am not Annette Tersigni. My name is Kady and I have temporarily taken over Annette’s blog (she knows I’m writing to you but doesn’t know what I’m about to say). I was a nurse. I held up the four elongated walls of my ward with my latex-gloved hands. Just like you do right now. Nobody truly sees the work you do behind the scenes. The lives you quietly save and the effect you truly have. How could the general public eve ..read more

Love is all you need…for Beatles lovers everywhere Greetings to you today, Yep. I love the Beatles. I actually saw them in person when I was the tender age of 14. Did your jaw drop. Full disclosure I’m 70 years young as of this writing. Born in the era of peace and love. This letter lands in your hands as Mother’s Day + Nurses Week coincide. Whether you are literally a mother who birthed children, or not, I DO know, as a nurse, you are ever a mother to all whom you serve. Being a mother is hard. Sometimes. Being a nurse is hard. Sometimes. It can be more, or less, it’s all relative. The commo ..read more

On Hopelessness, Health and Happiness

Greetings, Cut to the chase. I had a biopsy about 10 days ago. They found a suspicious area in my right breast, from an earlier mammogram and ultrasound. Not a lump, still a small area of unusual tissue. The expert team from the hospital I worked at for almost 20 years performed the procedure. Then came the waiting game, Easter weekend was coming up and the imaging center, where I was to return to get the results, was taking a well deserved holiday. Ergo, I had to wait longer than usual. I played out every possible story line, outcome in the back of my mind. OK, in the front of my mind too. T ..read more

Greetings Beloved Soul Everyone is in such a hurry. Like the rabbit in Alice In Wonderland. “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date.” We’ve been programmed by modern technology to get it all instantly. Whatever it is. Lo and behold, I found this in one of my daily readings… It’s only natural to want a quick fix or an immediate solution to a situation. As one member jokingly puts it, “Grant me patience Lord – and hurray!” My sentiments exactly. What about you? I know you can relate. Right? All together now, 1, 2 3…take a deep breath in…and sigh it out. The #1 technique to slooooow down ..read more

Meet Alan Watts: An English writer, speaker and self-styled “philosophical entertainer”, known for interpreting and popularizing Indian and Chinese traditions of Buddhist, Taoist, and Hindu philosophy for a Western audience. I went to see him in Toronto, Canada, when I was 18 years young in 1969. I wasn’t ready for what he had to say… Dear one, I was a sixties baby (boomer) on the path to freedom from suffering. Already a veteran of suffering, from the personal, private, family war I was brought up with, I was offered a saving grace. My Aunt Emilia. Auntie was a saint. Italian. Old school. St ..read more

Reflections from My Sabbatical + What To Do Now

Hola Beloved Soul, Yep, it’s been awhile. First, thanks for opening up this email. My sabbatical for my 70th birthday in 2021 is coming full circle. I took plenty of risks, riding a roller coaster of highs and lows. I took a delicious, daring chance and fell into a mature love story, all the while glamping on an obscure island. I learned how to band lobsters, cultivate oysters and enter a local seafood chowder contest. We took second prize! My old, faithful companions, anxiety and depression came and went, the dance of dark and light. What didn’t kill me made me wiser. By the grace of mystica ..read more
