Radio silence

Things have been a little quiet in this space lately haven't they?  Last week was such a crazy, emotional ride.  I blame the supermoon and the crazy energy surrounding it.  It really left me feeling like I just wanted to crawl into a hole and hide.  I felt myself retreating and not really finding anything to say.  I started a new ecourse too that I blogged about here, and to be honest it opened up a whole slew of emotions for me.  In the best way.  It also has left me needing quiet and space too.  Time to heal, my heart and my mind.  Give myself space to be quiet. It is a beautiful course, we are only in the second week and it has just left me feeling so full of love and beauty.  

Then Saturday night rolled around.  I was home attempting to make my first batch of GF chocolate chip cookies, when our home phone rang.   It was the hospital, saying that one of my best friends and soul sisters Juli had been in a major car accident and that they had her and her boyfriend in an ambulance being transported to trauma.  Her phone was lost in the accident and the only number she could remember was our home phone.  Needless to say, I jumped in my car and drove the 10 minutes to the hospital, alone.  My husband was at work.  I called my sister in law who also happens to be one of our best friends and lives right along the way and she came with me. Since I wasn't family, I wasn't given a lot of information on the phone.  The social worker made it sound extremely serious, so lets just say those 10 minutes driving felt like a fucking eternity.  I couldn't think straight and even made two wrong turns. 
When I got there she had just arrived and I was given little info.  I finally was able to get ahold of her mom, and she arrived shortly after.  She is going to be ok, but it is going to be a lot of recovery ahead of her.  Broken clavicle, broken foot, broken ribs, soft tissue damage to her hip.  Watching her be in so much pain is horrible, and it makes me feel so helpless.  A damn driver turned right into them and hit them head on, and of course he walked away without a scratch on him.  I am so thankful that she will recover and that it wasn't much worse.  So many of the emergency workers are saying how lucky they are and how it is amazing how they do not have any internal injuries or head trauma.  SO THANKFUL.   She has surgery tomorrow, and will be in the hospital through the weekend, her boyfriend got discharged today and had surgery to put some screws and plates in his foot on Sunday. It could've been so much worse.   But holy moly, does our circle of friends know how to rally in a crisis.

Someone has been with her day and night, she has never been alone and it has let her mom get some rest too.   

This is the tattoo that we both have.  She is my kindred soul sister, I will be forever thankful that she will recover from this. 

Please keep them both in your thoughts and please send healing vibes if you are able.  Prayers, vibes, juju.  We will take whatever you can send.  I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. 



  1. I am so glad to know your kindred sister and boyfriend are alright. She is blessed to have you by her side, and I don't doubt all the love and support you're offering to the both of them is helping to ensure their recovery. Sending them (and you) heartfelt love and positive energy.


  2. Oh my gosh! I'm thinking of all of you and sweet Juli. I'm so sorry this happened. Sending love and healing light to all.

  3. Oh that is terrible! She (and you) are in my thoughts. I'm so happy that she is going to be okay and I hope that her recovery goes well.
    Sending light and love her way <3

  4. My thoughts are with you all. Xoxoxox

  5. Thank you all for your kind words and healing love and light. I truly appreciate it with all my heart. So much love for you all.

  6. I am so so sorry this happened; Billy and Kaya were involved in a car accident a few weeks ago. The brakes gave out when they were going down a huge hill, slammed into and totalled a car, but if that car hadn't of stopped them, they could have died.
