Greetings from the Hudson River in Saratoga County, New York! Thanks for stopping by!
While you are here, I invite you to 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) and 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. My work focuses on bringing out the confidence, clarity, wisdom, and light that so often get buried and forgotten below layers of personality, conditioning, and possessions. I’d love to 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 recently decluttered it. 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.
