Today I send you tall pines — steady, solid, and majestic.
I send you spaciousness. I send you breadth and depth and the whisperings of your sweet soul.
I send you a good friend with whom you can admit when you are lost. And who celebrates all of the many kinds of getting found again.
I send you fresh peaches, ripe and juicy.
I send you the two brides with wide smiles, ready for the rest of their beautiful lives to unfold.
I send you your own horizon, filled with new ways to love, new paths to explore, new songs, new flavors, new colors — all the possibilities that have yet to walk over the threshold with you.
Today, my audio LoveGram is about one of my favorite topics: finding time to listen to what matters most. And someone to listen with and alongside.
You deserve this!
I’m here in Lake Tahoe, CA with my friend Tricia. Tricia and I meet weekly by phone for what we call “powerful conversations,” about who we are, the work we do, our dreams, and our intentions.
Twice a year we take ourselves away to someplace beautiful for a few days of concentrated dream time.
You may remember “meeting” Trish when she was a special guest on previous LoveGrams. I’ll post those links below because they were great conversations about living with intention, making an honest stand, getting lost, and creating deeper friendships.
Trish is a dear friend who has been by my side for many ups and downs. She’s explored many of life’s big questions with me. She’s cried with me, laughed with me, and given me a hand many times (including yesterday!) when I got stuck in the mud.
She’s also my special guest today on the LoveGram!

How can you create more space for yourself to listen to what matters most?
How can you find time to notice the spiritual breadcrumbs life is constantly dropping for you?
Is there someone in your life whom you would like to make a deeper connection with — a friend who could also become a mastermind or dream partner — someone who helps you live into who you most want to be?
Thank you for listening, today.
Thank you for being you.
I encourage you to remind yourself often that you deserve a rich life, filled with connection and meaning.
Seek celebration —even in dark corners,
P.S. This week’s challenge is to consider someone in your life with whom you might want to create a more intentional connection. Someone whom you can help connect to herself and her dreams/intentions — and vice versa? Will you set up a call, an afternoon, or a weekend to spend with this friend and commit to an exploration of what’s calling to you in your life, who/how you want to be, and what support you need? You could plan to hike, cook, do art projects, read, play music — anything that invites you more deeply into your life.
P.P.S. Here’s the link to my Kind Over Matter article about Living with Intention. I talk about the importance of time away to reflect and dream.
P.P.P.S. Here are links to two previous LoveGrams with Tricia as my special guest. In June, 2020, we talked about Make an Honest Stand. In February, 2021, we talked about Getting Lost and Found. Even if you heard these when they were first posted, they are worth another listen!
