TheOnlineSpa is a very new, on-line community where big feelers and generous givers can come to connect, explore and learn about themselves, be nourished and engage with others on the journey. Recently, I had the privilege of being interviewed by friend and colleague, Jonny Richard, co-founder with Ashley Colvin of TheOnlineSpa.com . I share the interview here – and – invite you to check out the community for yourself. It was such fun to have this conversation. Jonny is a phenomenal listener who brought more out of me than I knew was in there!
What is it that delights your spirit, sparks your creativity, resonates in the depths of your being, calls you to *more*?
Maybe it’s art or nature or poetry. Maybe it’s witnessing courage or an amazing feat of physical prowess. One thing that inspires me is music with lyrics that are deeply meaningful. And I sing almost every day.

How do you choose your next steps? Do you make choices based on “what everyone else is doing”? Do you listen to what “they” say? Or, do you step out of the mainstream and listen to the calling of your heart and soul for guidance?
In my early days of writing songs, this lyric spilled out:
Follow My Soul

The questions that are with me each day and through the night
sometimes send fear straight through me. I know not wrong from right.
Yet I know I must go through this uncertain time
