Etty Hillesum.

January 29, 2015 1 min read

Etty Hillesum is my first choice for someone who teaches me how to “be a heart” in my new series that I explained earlier here. A few years ago, I read her diary, which I highly recommend. She was born in 1914 in Holland and was Jewish. She died at Auschwitz in 1943 and her diary […]

A New Be A Heart Series.

A New Be A Heart Series.

A sweet photo recently found by our cousin, Laura. When we tell people that we are siblings and that we live together we get hilarious reactions.

(me in my natural habitat) Things have been a bit quiet over here on the blog front (in no way a reflection of life slowing down!) I left New York four months ago now and I really believed that since I was doing so well there, I wouldn’t have any problem with a move. Unfortunately […]

Yesterday was the first day of Advent. I remembered a talk that I heard a couple of years ago so I dug out my old notebook. It helps me each year to prepare for Christmas. He said that advent is a time to focus on our being–on our true essence, on the essential. I have […]
