Nourishment Of Another Kind

Kerstin McInnisFamilyLeave a Comment

For the last ten days I’ve been really sick.  I didn’t know what was wrong.  I figured some sort of gastroenteritis.  I lost 10 pounds.  I felt weak and got winded walking up a flight of stairs.  I couldn’t eat anything for the first five days and when I did it was something white – toast, crackers, conghee, plain yogurt. … Read More

inspiration is everywhere

I attended a new yoga class yesterday. When the instructor began, she let us know that today was a significant day for her. It was her first day as a full time instructor as she was no longer doing her part time job to supplement her yoga work. I was ecstatic for her. I didn’t know her and had never … Read More

The other night I had a dream. In this dream I felt like I was reliving a past life set in the 1880’s. I felt very young, maybe 15. I was in my parent’s home. It was simple, a one-room log cabin. My mother was at the stove cooking dinner. A man was sitting at the kitchen table. He had … Read More

My love’s heart is broken. Last night, I watched, as he said goodbye to his kids as they prepare to depart for Germany. They live there permanently with their mother and will return on Wednesday. We dropped them off last night to her at her parents’ house, where she’s been staying during their visit. As he hugged his 2nd oldest … Read More

I Choose

There’s a homeless man that lives in an alcove of my building. His name is Mike. He doesn’t fit the image of most homeless men in my neighborhood. He appears very clean, takes care with his appearance, and wears a gold wedding band. He sleeps in the alcove. By 7am, he’s rolled up his items, cleaned up the space and … Read More

Sea Fever

Missing the ocean energy today… Sea Fever By John Masefield I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking, And a grey mist on the sea’s … Read More

First, I have to apologize for the long lapse in posts. Life has gotten very busy lately and as much as I dislike it, this has taken a back seat. I hope to get back on track and share more on a regular basis. Now onto the blog post… As a kid I remember when I’d complain about doing work … Read More

I Am Open to Receiving the Gifts of the Universe

Open hands, palms up, open to receiving

Are you someone who loves to give? Do you take care of everyone else and set aside your own needs? Do you keep your troubles to yourself so that you don’t burden others? Some of us are really good at giving. We are there at a moment’s notice for a friend. We always offer to help. We are a willing … Read More

What Feeds You?

I’ve been thinking a lot about what feeds me. I don’t mean actual food, although that can feed me too. I’m referring to what feeds my soul. I’ve put a lot of my favorite things on the back burner lately due to other priorities. My painting class and writing has taken a backseat. I haven’t searched out anything new either, … Read More
