Hello Again

Oh, it’s so good to be back.  I’ve missed you sorely.  It really took me too long to fix this website and transfer it over to WordPress.  I had to learn how to code html and what an ftp client was and how to tweak a logo.

In the meantime, I’ve concocted a new Living the Questions podcast.  It will be published weekly on Monday mornings, to give you a dose of inspiration at the beginning of each week.  The topics will range from the simple to complex, but for now, I’m limiting them to 5 to 6 minutes.  Short.  Sweet.  Punchy.

Feel free to browse old posts.  They’re all categorized and tagged for the first time.

Feel free to subscribe to my quarterly newsletter or friend me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter.  Or feel free to do none of those things.  I’ll keep gabbing, hoping you’ll join in with your side of the story!

If you’re here because of Eve: A Novel, you’ll find everything you need on my Eve page.  For those of you here for the first time, I’ve compiled a list of previous blog posts you might or might not be interested in.  This is simply to give you a taste of what you’ll find if you dig further.  For those of you returning here, it will be a quick summary of the kinds of topics I like to discuss.  Then you can decide if it’s worth your time!  Sadly, in the transfer over, I’ve lost all my replies and comments to my individual blog posts, so if you’d like to comment, feel free to add to the discussion.

Bottom line: the writing of Eve changed my life.  It created new and interesting questions for me.  It embarked me upon a new path of discovery.  Now, no questions are off limits.  I’m here to do the dirty deed of dredging up everything you wanted to know about anything.  Join me, won’t you?  This will be a safe space to discuss things openly, without judgment or rancor.  I can’t wait.

In the meantime, here are a few old posts.

Thank you for joining me!  I’m so happy you’re here.  I’m so happy I’m here.

    Love the new site! I always commented to myself that your old site was rich in contact but lacking in user-friendliness.

    Now, there will be nothing to contain you!

    (Sorry for the back-handed compliment. You are a real treat to read!)

    Hi Elissa! This is absolutely superb! Such a beautiful, elegant and welcoming space. You have been working really hard, obviously. I should get my own website into better shape, I love all the changes and movement you have on yours. Are you coming to the June HNS conference in San Diego? It would be so much fun to see you again! I’ve been doing publicity for it this year, and am designing the conference program brochure. Check out all the latest at! Keep up the excellent, loving work/life.

    I’m so glad you’re here…and Mary, I’m not able to attend the conference in June. I’m so glad you’re going, though. You’ll have to tell me all about it! 🙂

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
