Happy Spring! Just thought I’d drop in and give a quick hello! Been busy, but haven’t forgotten about everyone out in the blogosphere. Instead of creating new content to stop by with, thought I’d share one of the articles I … Read more

In an effort to get myself cruising with this blog again, I’m going to repost something I originally wrote for Horse Nation. Even though it has only been about six months since I wrote this, it was fun to revisit … Read more
Hi all, so I took a little vacation from writing. Didn’t have any one reason – just a few little ones. Needed to focus on the rest of my life which seemed to be creating a dam in my creative … Read more
Ok everyone, you knew it was going to happen one day this week. Here it is, a link to the article I wrote this week for Horse Nation.
I almost forgot to shamelessly promote my own writing. It’s been up since Monday, have you seen it? It’s my thoughts about Homeopathy for horses. I tried to nicer than I was to Aromatherapy. Really, I did. http://www.horsenation.com/2012/04/23/a-better-alternative-homeopathy/
Most of you have caught on that I am now writing a weekly column at Horse Nation. If you didn’t get the memo, I’m sorry – but where were you anyhow? This week I tackled Aromatherapy. I would sincerely love … Read more
I promised on Monday to tell you all the rest of Kanak’s story. First though, let me start by saying I’m still working on the boundaries of what I share here in the blogoverse. I’m not paranoid, I don’t have … Read more
In responding to a colleague about the process of learning body work (specifically CranioSacral Therapy) this is what fell out of my head.
“It seems to be an unending series of learning new techniques, refining them, gaining a deeper understanding of anatomy and physiology, refining that knowledge, going deeper with the comprehension of it all and arriving at another level, then repeating. No complaints about it. The process itself is fun and amazing… the results just get better and better.” -Me
What’s even better for me is I get to do this with both People and Horses. Also the occasional dog and cat that request help. My chickens aren’t so sure about it at this point though I’ve tried on a couple of them.
Really the process isn’t too much different from mastering anything. There are days when I’m pretty sure I have it all figured out. Just to have the world throw me a curve as if to say, “alright lady you think you’re hot stuff? Try this one…” Those times I usually find humility quick. It seems if I don’t there is no figuring out the challenge. Then I have those days when I’m pretty sure I’m completely ineffective, just to get amazing feedback from the client afterwards.
There is no such thing as boredom in this profession. There is always something more to learn, whether from colleagues, or more often from clients themselves. I think that’s why I love what I do.
This past Monday I hauled Ki and Sierra to have the vets take a look at them. Neither one was three-legged lame, but both were just not progressing in their training like I thought they should. I’ve done lots of … Read more
