Greetings from the Hudson River in Saratoga County, New York! I’m honored and delighted you’re here.
My site, River Bliss, began as a platform for sharing my writing and photography. However, I’ve experienced much personal transformation in recent years and have rebranded and added additional services I’m passionate about. You can explore my blog (“Journal”) with posts in a variety of categories (mostly related to spiritual awakening, decluttering, death and bereavement, mindfulness, lovingkindness, gratitude, and nature). Also, I invite you to check out my photo galleries and online shop. In addition, you can learn about my Portrait Photography and Interior Enlightenment services that include Clutter Coaching, Feng Shui, Reiki, and (coming soon!) Mindfulness Mentoring.
Everything I do – whether it’s nature photography, portrait photography, clutter coaching, space enhancement, Reiki, or art – is about working with energy and connecting with the radiance and spaciousness that is our true nature…and living in greater alignment with that. Mindfulness and lovingkindness are the threads that run through it all. I love to work with people and bring out the confidence, clarity, wisdom, and light that so often gets buried and forgotten below layers of personality, conditioning, and possessions. I invite you to explore my website to get a sense of the many ways in which I can help you to release some of those layers so your true essence can shine through and guide you, and you can live with greater authenticity, spaciousness, and ease.
FYI, my Journal burgeoned to more than 300 posts over the years, and I’ve decluttered it to be more aligned with what this website has evolved into. All the old posts remain on my original River Bliss blog (http://riverblissed.blogspot.com/) that I maintained until the summer of 2015. That blog focused more on river life (including the Hudson River PCB dredging project), wildlife and plants, local history, favorite places, and early childhood education.
When I started meditating back in my 20s, my intentions were very different than they are today. A little more spectacular, you could say. I hoped to see visions, experience altered states of consciousness, receive special knowledge...and relax. But after a whole lot...read more
It's been quite a while since my last blog post. I've sat down a number of times to try to write one and have been doing loads of writing. I just haven't felt like publishing anything. It's partly because I've been simplifying since returning from the seven-day...read more
