about me

I am a single mom with an aspie son. I am a daughter, an aunt, a sister, a godmother. A friend. A teacher. I am a buddhist, a dancer, a writer. An old soul in a young-ish body. I am love. And I am perfect.

Perfect. Really? Well, more on that later... it's not what it seems.

I live by the radical, yet simple, view of not carrying regret and guilt, and not apologizing for who I am.
  • I have chosen my own unique blend of ultra progressive and ultra traditional. 
  • I parent based on my gut. I follow my mommy-intuition. 
  • I am not ashamed, embarrassed, or closed off about my son's special needs - my child is both Gifted and on the Autism spectrum, he has Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD. 
  • I left the Catholic church and became a Buddhist.
  • I am a staunch feminist who chooses to bake homemade cupcakes and learn how to sew.
  • I don't like the establishment - in any arena - especially medicine and politics.
  • I rarely read fiction and don't like the movies.
  • I can choreograph ballet to nearly any type of music.
  • I have no patience for poseurs.
  • I am learning, every day, to turn towards love. To trust in my inherent buddha-nature, and cultivate bodhichitta each day.
