Just wrapped up our first MoonBite
My vision when I launched Tangled Locks Journal was to partner with writers in a deep way to gain visibility for their work. Our monthly MoonBites takes that collaboration to a deeper level. We know that there are vibrant communities of readers and writers on social media including the image-based platforms. For our MoonBites, we…
A Deeper Gratitude
This morning, I stumbled upon an NPR interview with Brother David Steindl-Rast. I wonder how in all my years, I just found him today. Like many I admire, he has a religious practice but also a spiritual practice. He is a mystic, a philosopher, a psychologist, a scholar and a teacher. He studies, connects and…
Did you see it?
Pop! I look up to see a bright explosion and a falling line. I walk toward the sound and talk to neighbors and strangers. What if someone had been walking? We say. When will the firefighters arrive? How frightened the people in the house must be! Shouldn’t the power shut off automatically? Wise looks and…
Months of stressful multitasking has left my mind and body depleted. It took extraordinary planning to carve out a few precious hours. Could a short break have a notable effect on my spirit? After a parent teacher meeting, I take the slow way home, a road that winds through woods and fields. I let my…
With a little imagination, we can do anything. No more spoon fed ideas! Puréed politics is as unpalatable as over-cooked carrots spun through the food processor.

Resolving to simplify and find the abundance in my life
Clutter hides our abundance. Too much makes us feel like we do not have enough. All these things not quite right, or worse, hiding the treasures we already possess. —– Inspired by the desire to jump off the consumer bandwagon and today’s daily post. <a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/simplify/”>Simplify</a>
Resisting the propaganda machine.
Propaganda is pervasive and we are more easily influenced than we would like to admit. Information is flowing so quickly we are drawn to shortcuts to make sense of the world around us. Simplification of complex ideas to a single emotional meme works like a virus. Right, left or center, no one is immune. Some…
