I love rubbing people’s naked bodies.

Bodies of all shapes and sizes and textures. I’ve touched hundreds, maybe thousands of people in the last 22 years. People don’t hesitate to get this vulnerable in the private rooms of a well-trained massage therapist.

I love using the power of touch to…


Come gather as we drop into the dark

Hail and merry welcome
To all the tribes of people
Who are pouring in from far and wide
Who’ve come to meet as equals

Omigod! Omicron.
Here it comes. Who‘d’a thunk?
Another shot. The media blitz.
Pass the remote. Take another hit.

30 spike mutations! Who’s to blame?
Those anti-vaxxers have foiled the game!
Or maybe it’s the folks from very poor nations
Who (because of corporate greed) can’t even get a vaccination?

Bubbling up from deep below
The less we think, the more we flow.
If we can trust what we already know?
The better we breathe, and the smoother it goes.

We can choose to root into earth,
We can choose to honor Pachamama,
We can stay in awe of birth,
