Anyone out there reading Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose alongside Oprah and millions of other people around the world? Since mid-January, they’ve been doing a chapter a week, and discussing it on O’s Supersoul podcast. 

I gotta admit- I’ve never been part of Oprah’s bookclub. But I have been an avid listener to her podcast over the last 6 months (and it’s been life changing). Plus, I was gifted this book by a friend, and it sat unread for over a year. So I dusted it off and dived in.

This article first appeared on The Montague Reporter,
under my monthly column called “The Life and Times of an Indie Mama”

The safety I felt being part of a nuclear family dissipated, and I was left to navigate the world of single parenthood without much guidance.

Celibacy is (still) the new black

I crowned myself, so to speak, as the director of a festival. It took guts and grit. I didn’t do it to steal the spotlight. Far from it. I did it to make sure the spotlight was shining on the right people.
