Did you catch my post up at Steady Mom about important life/work/family boundaries? ************************************* Everyone has a hotspot. (And no I’m not talking about my new iphone that is an actual wifi hotspot and allows me to take my laptop to my creative hotspot. Different hotspot.)

Post image for Road to Ithaca

Three and half year ago when Sol was a chubby three year old, Koala was just a few months old and Nila Bindu was but a star in the heavens, we traveled to Ithaca with big dreams and a sparkle in our eyes. We knew we wanted to live in a vibrant community that valued [...]

If I had a million (extra) hours I would write a million blog posts that tell you of all the wonderfulness, mixed with all the growing pains and eye opening epiphanies, heightened by the quantum leaps of moving in the direction of my life’s work and passions. But I only have this one quick moment [...]


ost people operate under the illusion that once they get what they want they will be happy. (I can hear you all right now saying, “but it’s true! I will be happy when….”). This is conditional happiness and it doesn’t last. It’s good for a few kicks and you can certainly ride it out for [...]

This is a picture of my steady man living out his vision. A while back we took some time to evaluate our home, work, goals and visions. I asked Stone how he envisioned himself in context to our home and family and after a short pause he responded, “Buddha on a pirate ship.” I gave [...]
