The trees! They’ve gone and burst out in leafy song! Did you notice?
Leaf-clad trees don’t let me see as far from my second storey window, but they do get me to notice things closer to home, like the high wire act the squirrels are putting on, just yards away, on the telephone wires.
Squirrels aren’t the only ones putting on shows these days. In the marsh at Danehy Park the red-winged blackbirds are darting about. Spotting one of those red swaths of joy invariably makes my heart skip a beat and my mind pause.
And you, dear? How are you? Is it springtime by you, too, or are you in the southerly parts of our world watching the leaves start to fall, pulling cozy sweaters out of the closet–?
It’s been awhile since I’ve written, but you’ve been on my mind. My massage therapy practice, Heidi’s Table, has been bustling, which, after a couple of years of attention and love (mixed in with some nail-biting, sweat and a good few tears, truth be told) is a jump-up-’n'-down-for-joy thing for sure!
Thank you! Thank you my dear clients. Thank you, dear subscribers. Thank you, dear friends. I love doing what I do, and I could not do it without you.
Speaking of love, I want to tell you about the loveliest little e-book you could possibly read today. It’s called “23 Things You Might Not Know About You.” This little book would read like a gift even if you were paying for it, but my lovely friend Lisa Baldwin of Zen at Play is offering this wee-book for fr*e! Yipee!
Oh and too? I’m in it! Yep, Lisa asked me if I’d write about what I would like you to know about your body. However could I have said no?! For one, I adore Lisa. For two, I adore you. For three, I adore and am in awe of these amazing and baffling things we call bodies. (You can download the e-book HERE).
If you are local, there are a few massage openings left this week:
Thursday, 5/12 (3 openings left)
12 p.m., 1:45 p.m. or 5:30 p.m.
Friday, 5/13 (1 opening left, your pick)
12:15 p.m., 1:45 p.m. or 5:15 p.m.
Saturday, 5/14 (1 opening left, your pick)
9 a.m. or 5 p.m.
I look forward to seeing you soon on my table in Harvard Square or at my table on the interwebs. Or maybe I’ll bump into you at The Pause, which is, hands down(!), the best place to hang out when things get stressful and overwhelming.

You have a body. You have a mind. But they don’t always get along.
I can help.
