Shifting Preconceived Notions About Autism and Suicide

isaac asimov quote photo | Dianna Bonny Photography

Last week, I attended two functions, which means I left the house. I used to be more of the going-out type, but have become, without really noticing, a bit of a hermit. I enjoyed myself and realized I need to get out more often because I love learning new things and meeting new people. Time to rebuild my social-interaction stamina. more »

The Importance of Wayfinding After Losing a Loved One

Pema Chodron quote photo | Dianna Bonny Photography

I have mentioned I am working on a book and as I get deeper into the process of editing and writing, and more writing then editing, I continue to be intrigued by how much one can learn about themselves when putting pen to paper. I still have many pages to journey through before arriving at the threshold of a published book, more »

Unfortunate Encounters with Angry People

Anais Nin quote photo | Dianna Bonny Photography

  Last week was my daughter’s twenty-first birthday. She made the observation that it was the last milestone of her youth, so I replied that now she had years like thirty, forty and fifty to look forward to. She mumbled something about not wanting to get old, which made me laugh because it is exactly what I thought when I more »

New Beginnings for Living on the Fault Lines

Libba Bray quote photo | by Dianna Bonny

There is a lot of excitement and change going on here at LOFL. This journey, which began four years ago with a giant slice of devastation, continues to evolve and change in ways I never could have imagined. I am incredibly grateful to my readers and I genuinely appreciate your support and encouragement. This week I had an article published more »

What is Living on the Fault Lines?

M. Scott Peck Quote Photo | Dianna Bonny Photography

A few years ago, I began writing my book and slowly wading through the stories and experiences that led up to the dramatic discovery that most of my existence was not what I thought it was. Through this process, it became painfully apparent that I had been inhabiting an unconscious life, one where I knew very little about myself, or more »

3 Essential Tools for Healing: Writing, Meditation and Conversation

Bertrand Russell quote photo | Dianna Bonny

I was recently asked about the things that were most helpful to my healing process so far. I thought I would share my top three choices, in no particular order: Writing, meditation and actively learning to engage in honest, and often difficult, conversations. Breath Work and tapping would also be on the list. Writing has been essential to my entire more »

Rebounder Benefits: Rebounding for a Molecular Lightness of Being

This is my Rebounder. Don’t laugh, but I think it has mystical properties, or at least the repetitive bouncing motion seems too. I’m not a shaman, just a gal trying to navigate her way through a rather difficult life experience, seeking a variety of ways to heal my soul.

Healing Lessons from NBC’s The Voice

Sigmund Freud quote photo | Dianna Bonny

I’m not much of a television watcher, but my son and I did get taken in by the swirling media vortex of The Voice last Spring. Somehow, we happened upon the season premiere and from then on we were loyally watching every Monday night. I adored the winner; my son was rooting for someone else. In the end we jokingly more »

Feeling Your Feelings: Read ‘Ensouling Language’ by Stephen Buhner

Ensouling Language book

One of the most worthwhile things I have re-discovered these past few years is to allow, trust and honor feelings and emotions. In my other life, I felt things, but I would push those feelings as far away as possible. I did not live an inhabited life before everything fell apart, I lived at the edge, peering in. For me, “feeling” more »

Green Healing Goodness: Matcha Tea Benefits

Caffeine and adrenaline don’t play very well together, at least not in my body. I discovered this in the throes of adjusting to my new life as a widow and single parent, as I attempted to drag some of my old habits right along with me. The caffeinated jolt from my morning coffee, the one I love to drink as more »
