Rockin' Tucson

Days at the Tucson Gem Show whiz by,
 with access to thousands of stones 
from every nook of this planet or farther flung.
These timeless beings,
 that we have the honor to behold 
and possibly hold,
have been here for thousands, 
millions, and in some cases billions of years.
They have so much to teach us,
so much to share.
Each one an emissary of earth 
or the space that surrounds her.
Their story is epic;
beyond time we can imagine,
beyond scale we can fathom.
And yet we are given the opportunity 
to host these beings in our lives.
To adorn our bodies, homes and gardens 
with their magnificence, 
as they help us to understand 
to truth of who we are. 
Still in awe after all these years.

Rock crazy love...

Thank you sweet community!
With your help I presented a check to Sarah House 
for $1,100.00
 in memory of our beloved friend and fellow stone lover Sammy Case!
And as one person said about the Annual Studio Sale, 
"the real currency present here today is love!"
With so much love, 
The door is open.

Stone Lover Appreciation

Chrome Calcite

So excited about the 
Annual Stone Lovers Appreciation Studio Sale 
this Saturday!
Those of you who have been, 
know that traditionally it can be a little on the busy side...
But last year, I actually left in the middle of the Sale 
to attend my dear friend Sammy's 
memorial paddle-out service, 
and it changed my relationship to this Sale forever. 
(many aspects of Sammy's life have had that effect on me!)
This Sale is all about now much fun can we have, 
being as generous as possible.
You are loved and appreciated,
and I want you to know it.
I am grateful for the opportunity 
to express that gratitude this Saturday 
through ridiculously low prices, 
on phenomenal stone love
for you and your family to enjoy for life.
There will be Champagne, wine, good food and great people!
Come today for a preview, but to be fair to all, no price slashing until Saturday :)
With so much love, 
The door is open.

Resist No More...

Dog Tooth Amethyst

Cleanse time again.
I am always surprised at the amount of resistance
that occurs every time I know a cleanse is nigh.
And even though I have had almost three decades of practice...
 and I know how great I will feel...
 I still have to wrestle that sugar addiction to the ground,
 and get my determination on for the first couple of days.
There are always so many great reasons 
to put it a cleanse off...
Your best friend's birthday,
company in town,
a big project afoot,
 or in my case the upcoming Studio Sale.
But after the first few days
everything becomes easier. 
And the clarity and energy return with such delight,
 that you can't even fathom why you had any resistance to begin with.
Wishing you optimal health and well being.
With so much love, 
The door is open.

Repent No More...

"Wild Geese"

By Mary Oliver


"You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain

are moving across the landscapes,

over the prairies and the deep trees,

the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things."

As I rededicate my life to truth... 
The reminding/remembering 
of the truth of who we are...
I keep coming back to this line,

"You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves."


It reminds me that I can soften and release into 

the discipline and dedication to "Truth of who we are"

that I love.


Rather than being vigilant, 

noticing and repenting for all the ways I am not,

being loving 

noticing and softening toward all the ways I AM. 


This path is not through

working harder, being a better person,

partner, lover, sister, friend, or

 through forced regiment or will power,

This path is through allowing, softening, 

and loving what IS.   

With so much love, 
The door is open.

Open Open Open...


Hau ol'i makahiki hou!
Happy New Year!
I am on retreat in Sedona, 
listening to the spectacular red rocks.
Rededicating my focus, my life, my service.
Releasing stories, concepts and conditioning.
Remembering all the moments, 
with each of you, 
over this last year. 
Feeling the gratitude deeply,
 and letting go.
Wishing you much abundance, love and joy in this new beginning...
 remembering the truth of who you are.
With so much love, 
The door is open.

Thursday before Christmas...

Pink Opal

Twas the week before christmas and all through the studio,

the stones were excited to meet their new people.

Randy at the grinder and I stringing stones,

with Pandora bringing carols in all different tones,

there arose in the office, were all the gems live, 

a cacophony of voices and what they all give.

Ease, Grace and Love! they shouted with joy,

Abundance and Creativity! whether girl or boy.

On and on they proclaimed their love,

for all of creation, below and above.


And they await you today, as an amazing gift,

for that special someone who could use a lift.

 With so much joy we bring to you, 

these elegant beings, so strong and so true.

Happy Holidays! 

See you today

or if you RSVP'ed, see you Saturday!



with so much love,
