Keri in Doorway

Ready to take a
Deeper Dive?

Think it’s time to start breaking down some thought paradigms?

Inspired by fresh ideas, mindful reflections, and a touch of soulful magic?

You’re in the right place! Whether I’m writing about the soul, the culture at large, midlife (which I am smack dab inside), parenting, or our political landscape, the underlying themes are always about:

I love to hear your thoughts and comments, so please don’t be shy!

You can also find my work scattered about the web. The Urban Howl, Elephant Journal, The Edge Magazine, The Good Men Project, Grown and Flown, Rebelle Society and others.

Why Impulsivity is Sacred

Why Impulsivity is Sacred

I never create a word for the year, I rarely set New Year’s resolutions, either. Rather than resolutions, I try to live my life by Sankalpa, a Sanskrit word that means intention. The difference to me is an energetic one:...

When Friendships Die and it’s Nobody’s Fault

This is our coffee shop. It’s where we always meet. It’s Friday. It’s the day we always meet. Normally, we spend hours here, sipping our coffees, laughing and telling bad jokes like teenagers, trying out new thoughts on each other...

Possibility Doesn’t Need a Purpose, So Neither Do We

Job-title-less If you’ve been following my work, you know that the one thing I reject more than anything is labeling myself. “What do you do?”, a seemingly innocuous question, feels like a shortcut way of trying to get to know me,...

Post-Pandemic Friendships: It’s Time to “Ride or Die.”

“I’m uncomfortable around your anger,” my best friend admitted to me. She admitted this, because we had the kind of friendship where nothing was off-limits. The kind of friendship where we mirrored each other’s thoughts and finished each other’s sentences....
