The Tribe Experiment Day 17

  Show Me Your Soul Dear Love Pies, Yesterday we used songs to show a piece of our soul. Let’s take that a step further and add an image to it. Show me an image that captures the essence of you. Your heart, your love, your purpose. Something outside of your roles in life (mother, brother, employee, president, volunteer, wife, friend etc.) This isn’t so much about what you do, as who you are. Unless what you do IS who you are! Doesn’t have to be a photo; the image can be anything. Think of it as the image you […]

      Weirdiotomy   Dear Love Pies, If I had dreamed up a tribe in my wild imaginings, it would have fit within the confines of Jack Kerouac’s quote: “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” I love that we’re a hot tribe, full of kindred souls and soul kindling, mad […]

It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” There’s no way to avoid the dark. The dark is a part of life. But if we can […]

The Tribe Experiment Day 20

        Thou Shalt Not Play Small   Dear Love Pies, So, just this morning, a friend of mine sent me a link to a video with this quote in it. I piped up and said “That’s Marianne Williamson. It hangs in my house.” She’s going through a dark time, some of her creative pack has turned on her in jealousy, and is trying desperately to take her down mean-girl-style through gossip, criticism, falsehood. You don’t have to be the subject of a smear campaign in order to shrink. LOTS of things make us want to hide, but […]
