To you, it may be a card with a picture and some words. To you, it may be a piece of forged steel, chromium-vanadium in the shape of a wrench. To me, these are extensions of myself. Tools designed to help me and tools that I have learned to master with repetition and honest practice. I still remember the day I bought my first deck on a date with my now-husband. I recall the nerves as I picked up my first wrench not knowing what I was doing trying to be a millwright. The cold steel once felt foreign in my soft, feminine, unsure hands. Now, those same hands are painted but callused with the work and effort I put into turning fasteners and strengthened not only the muscles within, but my skills, too. Likewise, I remember looking at the pictures in the card and thinking “how the hell am I supposed to derive meaning from this?” And now, when the story begins to play as I draw card after card, I understand why skills cannot be rushed. Tarot provides tangibility to the magic I feel and translates spirit to something I can understand. I’m so looking forward to what is next, spirit tells me it’s going to be big — and wonderful.

How I landed on a rooftop patio in NYC this summer and why it's a story worth reading.
Flash back to 2018 which was a tough year.
It kicked off for me by falling down the stairs, tearing my rotator cuff and spending the first half of the year in chronic pain.
The year wrapped by sleeping on the living room floor for months intensively caring for the big furry guy Merlin, as he underwent back to back ACL surgeries. (He's just a bit too big for this girl to carry up the stairs.) And in between there were other bumps.
After the weight of the year, it's no surprise that the theme I chose for 2019 was FREEDOM.
Later in January, I made a bold decision and gave my kiddo a birthday card that simply said "NYC Summer 2019."
I had no idea how I was going to make it happen but I knew it was non-negotiable. I needed to do something different. I craved fun adventure and connection with my teenager. And it was time to raise the bar on my expectations of what's possible.
And what I know for sure from personal experiences and countless client examples is...
Once you make a decision and you're all in, the universe conspires to make it happen. Your job is to trust and get down to doing the work.
So, I started to take ACTION AS IF we were going and that's when one by one things started to fall into place in the most unexpected ways.
The trip was more than I could have ever hoped for. We visited museums, honoured folx that paved the way, ate great food and listened to music from drums in the subway to the famous Big Band at Bird Land.
We soaked in the pulsing city with it’s bright lights and big dreams in the making.
Including my own… sharing ice cream and laughs, priceless rooftop conversations and insights into the adventures ahead.
