  1. Shirin, although I’ve never been called for jury duty, my “peers” in life have changed significantly over the years and I am so grateful for this. During the years I lived in a huge metropolitan area, I had little time to meet and make friends with others outside of the office or other professional connections. Since moving home to NM 13 years ago, my peers are now an incredibly diverse spectrum of people who inspire and enrich my life in many ways.


  2. What a lovely calling you have. And in southern NM! I grew up in El Paso and have been spending time here and in NM recently reconnecting spiritually. I look forward to reading more of your writings and teachings.


    • Thank you, Gabriela! Interestingly, I moved to Arizona last month and forgot about updating my About page…so thank you for pointing it out to me! Part of my heart will always be in New Mexico, as it formed me and continues to influence me…. Blessings on your spiritual reconnections and I am glad my blog is helping!
