Good Grief! (And my leather rocker costume)

We held space for it all under the most beautiful Weeping Willow in the Napa Valley this weekend…

I napped under this tree last weekend and also celebrated there with my husband and friends.

Someone we worked with for the Orange & Blue Ball that happened on 6/8, a costume gala that our family’s foundation, The dg Foundation, created in honor of my late brother, texted our event designer: “…listening to people mourn but still live and love and celebrate at the Orange and Blue Ball was life-changing.”

Good grief, that’s on point. 

Because we can — hold the confusion and compassion, the sadness and the joy, the gratitude and the “I wish I could have done or told them this or that.”

We are everything all at once and when we can honestly speak about the range of these emotions and our natural imperfections (both natural), on and offline, the less separate we feel from our true selves and from others and the more room we continue to make for peace, contentment, and joy…

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life! 

Life is good,

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life! 

Life is good,
