Life is not a straight line. It's a downpour of gifts, please – hold out your hand

Thank you for being here. I'm so glad you're here.


Each sip of life 

speaks to you 
in delicious, holy whispers

quiet down
quiet down

and listen

Me in one of my favorite ever places, Taos, New Mexico

My name is Julia.  I am a mommy to two little lights, Marielle and Lily.  I write poetry, I paint, I am the author of the book, On the Other Side of Fear.  I am passionate about whittling things down to their essence, letting go of all that no longer serves me and connecting deeply with myself & others.

It is my deepest desire to step into--fully, powerfully, unapologetically all of who I am-to crack wide open all that stands in the way of true truth and true love.  It is my hope that as I flail around a bit, as I remove the excess--as I show up and thrive, I might inspire you to the same. And together, side by side, we can forever let the hell go of trying to be good, of trying period. And can, instead, spread our sweet wings and fly together.

This is my blank canvas, my space to explore and flail and share and connect, my space to sip & savor and to honor this messy and beautiful thing called life. 

I'm so very happy you're here.

I absolutely love hearing from you!  If you'd like to connect, please email me at:
