Here’s some of what I’ve been up to recently.

Getting Your Touch Needs Met During the Time of Social Distancing

I’m really looking forward to this two-hour, experiential online workshop I’ll be doing on April 8th.
Among other things, we’ll identify what touch means to you, distinguish between touching and being touched and the benefits of each, and experiment with a wide array of sensual tools that are available to you at home. You’ll learn ways to feel physically connected while you are apart, and share with others who yearn for touch during this time.
This is NOT a talking-head class, but rather an experimental and experiential at-home workshop.

What I’m Reading:

  • Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin – I’m digging it!

I’m also kind of obsessed with How to Do Nothing by Jenny O’Dell. I read it last summer and it’s proving to be one that’s sticking with me. My relationship to my immediate environment has improved tremendously since reading it. I’ve reduced my Facebook usage considerably and been a lot clearer about my Internet usage which has helped my mental health.

The book isn’t actually about doing nothing. It’s about attention, the folly of the “just run away from it all” fantasy, how to intentionally turn our attention to things that nourish us, why being “useful” is overrated, and so much more. In its own way, it’s also a love letter to the Bay Area. AND, it’s very timely.


What Else is Going On?

I moved to a new place in the East Bay just a couple of days before the 3-week shelter-in-place was issued for COVID-19. The timing was both terrible and great. Moving during a burgeoning pandemic is not exactly what I had in mind. On the other hand, I have about a million house projects to keep me busy.

I’ve been slacking on my Instagram habit while the move has been underway, but I’m posting in my stories a lot, prioritizing cute animals, tools for self-care and beautiful art. That’s where I hang out online most. You can follow me here
