I first met Erin Robinson at the Alchemists Breakfast at the 2017 DENT Conference. I instantly liked her down-to-earth style and, turns out, she has many of the same interests as me. We instantly clicked. After breakfast, I noticed her name tag said Colorado as we continued our conversation. I explained that Boulder was on my bucket list of places to bring the “Sage Spirit” and perhaps late August would be a nice time for that, since it would also coincide with the launch of White Wild Indigo. She said she had the perfect place.

I just returned from a weeklong trip through the country of Cuba. Living off the grid has taken on an entirely new meaning to me.
Take a moment and think—
What does it mean
To have fresh water to drink?
To splash on your face, brush your teeth
And hydrate your body with its exquisite embrace?
A daily ritual some might accidentally
Take for granted
To have water at your fingertips
And to your lips
To restore your body in big thankful sips!
Today is April 30 and the last day of National Poetry Month. I’ve been excited to celebrate this monthlong event for many reasons: First, I love poetry—in all its manifestations! Second, it healed me. Third, I met my personal goal to self-publish two illustrated poetry books. And for so many other reasons; especially that poetry helps us to understand each other and gives us a sense of all the beauty in the world.
We’re all colorful mosaics. Each and every one of us made up of pieces of life experiences—the places we’ve been, the people we meet, the things we love; feelings of happiness and sadness, tops of Rocky Mountains and rock bottoms, moments of spontaneous elation and unexpected surprises; smiles, hugs, kisses; the walks we take, the poems we read, Sunrays and Sundays—that when combined, are what make us unique individuals.
February has been one busy month with SO MUCH happening behind-the-scenes: preparing the final touches on my new poetry book Sage Spirit, the book signing and Sage Spirit book launch party in Southern California, the Creative Spotlight, the upcoming Mark My Words Exhibition for Sage Words in West Palm Beach and now preparations are underway for the DENT Conference in Sun Valley. It’s been a lot of hard work and a lot of travel, but all wonderful progress!
