From my salty, sensitive soul—straight to your inbox. Musings for the Moon is a free weekly newsletter to help you unfuck your life, and unleash your magic—one moon phase at a time.
Misfit. Weirdo. Wild Woman. Witch. Some might perceive these labels as negative or undesirable, but I will take them, wholeheartedly and without an inkling of shame. I am not afraid to hold these monikers as my own, without fear—without a moments hesitation. I have always existed on the fringes...Read more
A relentless trek of switchback after switchback, the Four Mile Trail from Yosemite Valley to Glacier point isn’t actually 4 miles at all—it’s 4.6 miles to the summit…and another 4.6 miles back down to the valley, climbing 3200 feet along the way. My 11-year old, Isaac, asked me how long...Read more
My phone was dead. Again. I’d forgotten to bring my external charger which I’ve been lovingly and nostalgically referring to as my “land line.” My battery life is questionable at best, so that little charger usually goes with me everywhere, resulting in my cell always being plugged into something....Read more
It was my first professional photo shoot. I’d done some informal shooting for other people’s sites and projects, but I’d never done a shoot just for me and my work. The shoot took place in New York City at my friend Mark Fisher’s gym, just a few weeks before...Read more

I can’t become a warrior until I let go of being a victim. I’m wholly unashamed to admit that although I’ve been dealt this lesson over and over again during the past 3 years, I wasn’t able to fully grasp it until just recently. The thing about the Universe is...Read more
Rain drops fell incessantly, the drip, drip, drop creating a symphony of serenity, of nurturing…of cleansing. It doesn’t rain very often in Southern California, so when it does it feels imperative to revel in the rarity. I had a teeming agenda for the day ahead that I’d diligently planned the night...Read more
I used to be the kind of person who checked email first thing in the morning. I’d wake up at 5 am, brew a French press, and sit down at the desk in my home office. The dogs would follow along and settle into my office sofa, promptly falling back asleep. Then,...Read more
For the past few years I’ve been steadily growing my vinyl collection. It all started after a trip to Ojai during which I found myself at the cutest little bar listening to records and drinking wine from a can. A gorgeous bohemian bartender threw on a record by William Onyeabor and I...Read more
Things I would rather be doing than trying to have a perfect body, be a perfect mom, run a perfect business, and live a perfect life: Eating Tacos Laughing until my belly hurts (and maybe I even pee a little, don’t judge me) Pull-ups Teaching pull-ups Watching videos of kickass...Read more
