Big, Chunky, Now or Never Life Decisions Require Clarity and for me, that requires a bi-annual festival of Denial where I turn off many of the things I love to eat, drink, and inhale and clear my schedule to take stock of my body, mind, and soul, check the math for my end game, and listen as hard as I can to my spiritual entourage, and entreat them to give me an orderly, sensical packet of clues/genius sequences/lucid instructions on how to make a decent balloon animal for this next phase.
Shonagh is on mission to help you reclaim your sovereignty, teach you how to protect your rights, and remind us how our ancestors stayed healthy, and I’m here to push back as needed, question her sources, and provide a little comic relief because waking up isn’t all unicorns and cookie dough

Susan Fox, a brilliant Life Coach, Yoga Teacher, and River Guide I met in Palo Alto, taught me this practice, and it came to me to pass it along to you. The “Be Book.” It’s so simple. Every day, before you head out, you write down who or what you’re going to BE that day. […]
Terrible nights sleep led to skipped meditation and an IV drip of coffee. “Mom, it’s late start.” Delete walk with Shaman.

Walking the “Packing for Crazy Town Talk” involves getting to, as Dianne m. Connelly, 3 time guest on the podcast in Season 1 would say: “giving […]
SO, EVERY SNEEZE, EVERY TIME YOU CUT IN LINE, THROW YOUR BACK OUT, SCORE THE WINNING GOAL, GIVE BIRTH, SEND A TEXT, PET YOUR CAT, BOOK A FLIGHT…IT’S ALL THERE.
I glowered in the Verizon store, huffed in Whole Foods, was short with the Pet Food Store cashier, and made sure the patient Comcast tech support woman felt the full measure of my weary depression as I unplugged everything, waited for 20 agonizing seconds, and plugged everything back in.
Wait a second, what is happening here? What even Is Packingforcrazytown.com anymore? The answer to that is, it’s evolving.
