Who is breathing lighter?


As a native Californian with a passion for history, I spend as much time as possible finding new places of interest, and many of those field trips find themselves on the pages of this blog.

Keeping an active mind and following my curiosity is what also reduces stress and assures that I’m breathing lighter! I hope you’ll feel welcome to come along at any time. I enjoy sharing.

  1. HI Debra! I live in NE now, outside of Boston, but I moved here less than a year ago from northern CA, where I worked in the town’s historical society. Learning about our history, restoring our depot, our old church, telling the community to come visit – yes, all this make breathing lighter.

    • So nice to have you stop by and share your love of history and place! You have certainly moved to the right place to delve into American history. Two of my closest friends have moved from California to the NE and are enjoying exploring so many wonderful sites that were previously only known through history books! I’d love to know what city in Northern California you came from Your restoration projects interest me. My son lives in Oakland and we’re making many more trips north these days. Thank you so much for stopping by…it was nice to meet you.

  2. Hi Debra,
    Wasn’t the sunlight so different during the Eclipse? So bright even clear and almost ‘thin’- odd to think of it like that but it was different! I stayed near Ruffles & Beau keeping them near and in shade. The birds were quiet for us also.
    Beau says he would make the squirrel move for you – if you want! Darwin definitely was making a run for it!
    Thanks for a good documentation from a citizen scientist.

    • It’s so nice to see you name added in the comments, Beth. I think you’re really perceptive to have come up with the word “thin” for the atmosphere during the eclipse! I wouldn’t have been able to come up with that description, but I think that’s exactly right! Thank you for that. Darwin has been very active all weekend and I’m wondering if it’s the weather, but maybe he is trying to get even more attention, now that I’ve focused on him. πŸ™‚ Hugs to Ruffles & Beau as well!

  5. Hi Debbie πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I know you’re not reading comments but I came here looking for an email address, so I could drop you a line to see how things are. I guess there isn’t really anything to say. I hope your daughter is doing well, and that you have managed to stay positive and supportive. Sending hugs, darlin, and very best wishes.

  6. Hi Debra,
    You happened to comment on my Napkinwriter blog about the ability to listen. The subject is part of my JOURNEY GIRL memoir…So is Breathing and it is the first Island of Silence practice discussed in Chapter one.

    Your website and subject of Breathing lighter to ease the strife and noise that abounds now is very important. I hope you are continuing it as this work needs to be done in the world now. I will look to follow you

    I am switching from Napkinwriter (a long love) to my author/artist website to build my following there and attune my followers to other light workers such as you.
    Please look over an elementary work in progress and add your email to the newsletter list.
    I PROMISE my mailings will be SHORT emails and blogs twice monthly. So not a time-waster, merely a “drop-in” good word.


I always enjoy hearing from you!
