Find your Pod

There are different groups of people that swirl around us on a daily basis. And usually we can count on one hand within those various groups how many people you would call in a ride or die situation. But recently I find myself in a bit of a pickle. In a strange yet beautiful place, on the best adventure of my life! And yet I have no face to face pod here [thank you and the big middle finger to covid for this] yet. Although it will happen.

And during this time I have come to realize through speaking with friends daily [phone/text/emails/face time] that the “pod” as they call it, is most important. Not only for social interaction but for sanity! For humor, for expression and a fundamental need for basic social skills that you just can’t do in front of a pc.

As we’re wrapping up one of the worst/best years of our lives [and looking back-something we would never think would ever happen to live through personally], stop and think about the pod…YOUR pod.

Is your pod big enough?

Where are your people?

WHO are your people?

Do you take your people for granted?

When was the last time you just said.. I love you .. and thanks.. and that was all?



I’ve attempted to leave everything political out of todays post. And the only way to do this is to show love. In my culture, food is love. Mr and Mrs Kasha Davis were kind enough to create a bread video for everyone [these people are inspirational and filled with hope and I adore them], so I wanted to share it here. Please support them!

All my love,


The famous line “we came, we saw, WE KICKED IT’S ASS!”. I feel like this is the voice of the virus right now. States are going back on lock down and for good reason. In the past 2 weeks [because some family members decided it was OK to get together for turkey day] 8 members of my family contracted Corona. Thankfully none of them had to be hospitalized, but it was over 3 different generations ranging young to old.

Let’s mention the fundamentals of this incarnation-just the basics…

  1. Nature will always find a way
  2. Love and kindness win [ALWAYS]
  3. The universal karmic law never bounces a check

Life balance needed a way, and it found a way. Naysayers can believe whatever they want. The statistics are real. Before you run off to grandmas this year, please think again. Would it be SO bad to create new traditions in a safer way? Get creative-make new memories-come up with new electronic games, be SAFER than you ever have. I am not looking forward to January statistics.


Brace yourselves..

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water. Swimming isn’t the best idea for boredom. I don’t need tarot orders or requests, I don’t need to make money with this blog. I have fresh air in my lungs, and food in the fridge. I have a warm blanket and a place to lay my head at night. Some people are in dire situations right now because of the pandemic. We are going on well over 6 months of people without their jobs, people losing their homes, children not being able to eat. But just when we think we’ve seen the worst of the worst, it’s going to go beyond the horror.

This holiday season I BEG YOU to stay home. I BEG you not to have family parties. PLEASE.. do not gather.. we are all still at risk, from the grocery stores, to the gas stations, to every single thing we touch. This is not out of fear, it is out of genuine concern and love. Look back through pandemic statistics after the July 4th holiday in the US this year. Numbers do not lie. People are still dying at an alarming rate. This virus is not done with us. The only way to force it out, is to sit and wait #alonetogether. Please pass this along to everyone you know, and tag it in other blogs.

I love you all,


Pass this on please



This is an unprecedented time in our history.  The existing pandemic has tested our ability to remain kind.  Shaken to our very cores, some of us have failed, and miserably at that.  I lost my mother to Covid [this is not to lament-only to prove a point] this year.  And yet, good can come from bad.  There is a silver lining in everything we see unfolding around us.  My actions, my choices during this period have tested me every day and yet I can STILL walk away with my head high and a smile on my face, with peace in my soul.  Knowing that at every turn I have made the best decisions for my loved ones and for myself.

So where is your smile?  Where is your peace?  You’d better find it.  Because living in fear can kiss ALL of our *sses.  Fear is not the way to go folks-no matter what decision is upon us.  Only kindness and love wins.

Regardless of the color of your skin

Regardless of the hardships you face

I PROMISE you-someone right now has it so much worse…



I started reading at the age of about 16, then for multiple people at the age of 18.  A neighboring pack of good old gals showed me the ropes.  Like speaks to like.. as they say.  And very early on I realized something about all the good readers.  It takes TIME to develop your craft.  It takes hard work and time.  I can’t add hot water to this and make it an instant overnight success.   I have had steady and faithful clients now for over a decade.  Not only does it take time but in my younger years I realized that these readers were older.  They had time to do this full time.  They have spent years honing their intuition and gifts.

I am now in a very good position to do just this. No longer are the trappings of the 9-5 for me.  I have time to devote to the craft and nothing but the craft.  And this is what I’m going to start doing.  Every day until the end of 2020, I will give away one free reading to the first person that contacts me.  One question, one answer.

I look forward to reading for you!



My pug is 12+ years old now and he’s been sick quite frankly, since he was 3 months old.  After DNA testing and many different research projects I have come to realize that he was a breeding experiment used to create a “pugabull”.  Hence, his health problems.  Don’t get me wrong-hes a happy go lucky wonderful little guy, always has been. And I want his life!  But in the past 2 years he’s become diabetic [not uncommon].  I would just like to share the information my better half and I have discovered about this boy so other pug parents can lighten their load so to speak, and have many options.

  1. Pugs/dogs in general can be picky eaters.  If your pet doesn’t eat, he can’t get his insulin, and that creates havoc and a horrid cycle of never knowing what to do at feeding time.  It’s pure stress on the owner.  We have discovered 3 key options when feeding our boy and it has been consistent for weeks now.
  • creating a low sugar diabetic meatball and sprinkling half over his food enticed him to eat.  We just use turkey, fatty ground beef [otherwise its too dry and they may develop stool issues] quick oats, and some oregano.
  • sprinkling a little shredded cheese over the meal [we call it the stink factor] really gets him investigating everything in the bowl and he eats 99% of whatever we put in there now
  • in the mornings-I was noticing he would randomly NOT want anything to do with his bowl, OR the homemade meatball!  My better half read up on the subject-it seems that dogs can get a sour stomach at night, building up bile [specifically diabetics] and that if we gave him just a little something before bed, that would subside, so turkey meatball tastings were in order.  We now make the meatballs big enough to cut into 3rds.  One piece for both meal times, and one before bed.  Weeks later I am  happy to say he’s eating every day without fail!

2. If your animal has gas issues, it’s a direct result of what you’re feeding him.  We feel [sometimes] that variety is the spice of life for our fur babies, and this is just not the case.  It can be harmful to them and their digestion.  One KEY FACTOR of a diabetic is how much water they drink.  If you notice that your animal is going for the water bowl immediately after you feed him a specific kind of treat STOP giving it to him.  More water is due to a salty dehydration factor, and that also means the animals sugars are out of whack.  Stop that immediately.

3. Just because your animal likes all kinds of treats from the same brand, doesn’t mean they are good for them.  Please check the kcal on each treat type and find the lowest one possible.  Once you’ve done that stick to the same schedule and do NOT give them treats all throughout the day.  Remember you’re trying to be consistent, this is a senior animal and pugs especially are ALL about the food.  Don’t let them troll you into the guilt treat! lol..

And finally, never EVER say to yourself “he’s old.. he can have whatever he wants now”.  Do not fool yourself into making that mistake.  They can NOT have excessive sugars/treats/intake throughout the day.  Keep them healthy and happy-and you can only do that by giving them what they need, not what they want.

I wish you and your fur babies happiness and health in this ever changing 2020!

Love, Sonic, boo boo, and G ❤

We need to laugh

This gives me life today everyone…just remember to please be kind during this pandemic ❤
