blue & white & scenes from a Nova Scotia winter

We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection. Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves. Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.

Happily busy with lots of really great creative projects here at the teak topped desk, including Lilla Roger's Assignment Bootcamp + practicing daily … feeling good about being my imperfect, authentic & tres vulnerable self ;-)


  1. Glorious photos of your Winter landscape dear Susan and a beautiful photo of Miss Winnie.
    That is such a beautiful and honest quote from Brené Brown, so sad when the person you love does not feel the same when you have shown your vulnerable self so deeply...speaking from personal experience here.
    So pleased that you are feeling good about yourself, you should feel no other way dear friend.
    love and hugs
    xoxoxo ♡
