Getting naked is the last thing we want to think about in winter. Especially those of us who live where snow falls.
But I think the more we mirror nature rather than draw the curtains on it, the closer we get to feeling balanced. Steady. A reasonable goal during these very unsteady times.
That’s my plan for this upcoming winter and early spring. To get a little bit naked. Bare a little more of my soul. Leave my mark in the world. In words.
Like the tree that falls in the woods when no one is around, your mark won’t reverberate unless you share it with others.
So let’s get naked together this winter and spring. I’m starting the year off with a one-day writing workshop in the woods (January 14th at Little House of Glencoe) and following it up with half-day, four-five-and-six-week workshops, as well as private coaching options.
Let’s strip down to the bare essentials. We’ll leave quite an impression.
