I want to share something odd with you. I don’t think you will mind, since I have already made myself quite naked here. About a month after the life changing summer, I was out for a walk. I am a walker — it is one of the ways I solve my problems, foot to earth, step by step. It is more »

This was originally a guest post over at Elin Stebbins Waldal’s beautiful blog and I wanted to share it here: Traumatic experiences can dramatically interrupt our lives, like a mighty ice storm, and instantly change the landscape. We then face the question of whether we are going to remain frozen in the position the storm left us, or smash the more »

This post is a reprise but grounding is a good way to cultivate inner peace and stability in the midst of the busy holiday season.

scapegoat quote | Dianna Bonny Photography

I discovered sometime ago that members of my husband’s family have a Google Alert on my name. I assume it is how they discovered and subsequently sabotaged the webinar I wrote about last week.

Lisa Wimberger quote | Dianna Bonny Photography

I have a collection of indoor + outdoor plants that have traveled along with me from house to house during my last three moves. I am attached to them in an odd way that I haven’t yet been able to define. Perhaps because I had to let go of so much, I needed something to anchor me to a part more »

As a traveler on the healing path, I am really beginning to understand how easy, yet ultimately more difficult, it is to move away from discomfort.

Dianna Bonny Lotus Icon

We are a nation of measurers aren’t we? Everywhere you look there is someone with a yardstick stretched out over our lives to make sure we are keeping up: school GPAs, test scores, top 100 lists, body mass index, IQs and happy lifestyle percentiles, and even a stress scale to keep track of…stress.
