I’ve been keeping this list.

I call it “The Big List of Trying.”

It started as a reflection about my life as I near the half century mark. I guess I'm trying to quantify the sheer number of weird, wild, and whimsical experiences I’ve collected. I was curious about what's...

I've always had a rocky relationship with my singing voice. As a kid, I’d sing with my Dad at the bar, happily oblivious to my clearly sub-par vocal range. (Get it together, 5-year old, Colleen!). 

Dad was a classically trained opera singer, and his voice was incre...

I’ve lived in NYC for almost 25 years and, like many New Yorkers, I’ve developed a keen sense of self preservation while walking these streets. Challenging interactions with our fellow city dwellers seem to be unavoidable, a numbers game of too many people on a too-sma...

Some of you may have noticed the blog has been a little… quiet… over the last month or so. I have about 10 posts started and abandoned in my Evernote app because I haven’t been able to focus on writing recently.

(If you’re not sure why I need medical attention, you’ll want to read my previous post here.) 

It’s another...

February 5, 2016 — Costa Rica

Journal entry from my Friday morning beach meditation:

New meditation today- the theme is “Acceptance." He starts with a question: “Who or what in your life are you resisting right now?” Feelings of sadness, fear and overwhelm- no surprises-...

If you know me well, or are a regular reader, you know that personal development is a big part of my life. I’ve been seeking, and trusting that the “ye shall find” bit will follow.

I meditate, journal, set intentions and goals. I’ve read ALL the Brene Brown books and ha...

March 2019 — Playa Troncones, Mexico

It’s a couple of days into this yoga retreat and so far it’s bliss - which is also the name of my cabana. 

On many vacations, especially when I’m traveling out of the country, I tend to over schedule myself: excursions, classes...

I write this note to myself at work after deciding not to pick the fight I’ve been dying all week to pick. I can’t remember where I’ve heard this phrase before - I assume I read it somewhere, or heard it from a teacher. But it pops into my head and seems right.
