have always been haunted by history’s tragic stories. get angry at others’  arrogant indifference about them: why stories are doomed to be repeated. feel country and world are in very dark time now. so easy to slip past the tipping point.

have always felt tenderness toward the earth. remember joy of seeing home movie of you as very small child holding armful of flowers & smiling at the camera. felt like verification of life’s work, a cause you were literally born to pursue. resulting beauty is a lovely bonus.

you see hypocrisy in many forms, some likely to merit a term that’s less harsh. giving the benefit of the doubt is kinder, dear one. kindness is part of integrity, as is humility. those words even feel soothing.

I’m going to be out of pocket for a couple of weeks so I’m posting 2 very early blogs. My wonderful website has lamentably disappeared, so I thought these more- descriptive posts might be useful. I imagine coming onto this site cold can be pretty confusing, since there’s often just a few words. My deep respect for the 314 people who’ve decided to follow me anyway. I welcome any and all questions and can’t recommend this practice highly enough. It’s kept me sane through many tough times.

The purpose of my blog is to show you what happens when you contact your right brain using your ‘other’ writing hand. This is called alternate handwriting. (AH: my favorite syllable!) You can literally write back and forth between your right and left brain using your right and left hands. It’s like having your own talented, completely trustworthy counselor literally at your fingertips.

One of the main gifts of this work is to make us more compassionate about ourselves and aware of when we’re not. My theory is that, the more slack we can cut ourselves, the more compassionate we can be about other people. Which in turn will lead to the world being a better place. I know that sounds naively idealistic, but I believe it wholeheartedly. Major change can and does come from simple steps. I’m determined to share this incredible power that EVERYone with 2 functioning hands can use.

I’ve been writing for about 10 years and share Glimmers from my own handwriting sessions here. My hope is that you’ll be curious enough to try writing yourself a question about something or someone that’s bugging you, putting your pen or pencil in your other hand, and letting it respond. Which it will.

[writing about major positive changes I’ve made]: all look like natural progressions now, but certainly didn’t at the time. followed instincts & did necessary footwork.
