Dearest Reader:

On this special day of gratitude, I’m writing to say thank you.

This blog turned 12 last month and a few of you have been around since the very first post in 2004. It’s an absolute honor to be part of this online community filled with like-hearted ladies (and a few fab men).

It’s a funny thing, writing 3,368 posts filled with personal stories, struggles, resources, and/or ideas from a laptop in Washington, DC and wondering where or how the posts land.

I picture you going about your busy day and receiving a notification that a new post is up (if you’re signed up for “musings by email‘”) or coming to the blog from time to time to check in. I wonder if a post will resonate as I write it. I wonder if you save it for later or dive in. I wish that the ideas prove useful. I wonder if I’ve shared too much or not enough. It’s this continual state of not knowing, yet continuing to hit the publish button.

I was blessed to meet many of you on the 2013 Tranquility Tour. Some of you practice at Tranquil Space or stop in for a class when visiting DC. Others have joined me on retreat. Many I haven’t had the opportunity to meet in person, but I recognize your name as an order comes in. And some of you I haven’t yet had any contact, but you visit here in search of something.

Whatever it is that draws you to Tranquility du Jour, I’m so grateful. I hope that this blog and podcast offer you a respite—a quiet place to muse, dream, and breathe.

Thank you for being here. Thank you for helping me grow. Thank you for making the world a better place in your own special way.

May your Thanksgiving be filled with gratitude.


P.S. I hope to see you on Friday at our first Facebook Live gathering.
