The Wintertime Blues:
post-holiday letdown can be difficult - and it holds meaning

by Barry W. Dugan, Healdsburg Tribune 1/14/2004
The winter holidays have passed, the Christmas tree is compost. The wrapping paper has been recycled and the so-called "happiest time of the year" really didn't turn out to be. The twinkling holiday lights have been replaced with the cold, dank days of January.

The more passionately one relates to life the sharper and more intense the pain. The more access we have to our pain the more access we have to our joy. Where we have experienced terrible wrenching pain our heart becomes wounded and we naturally, often out of necessity, learn to armor our heart against these unbearable experiences.

Finding My Voice in Music

by Linda Friend, MA, MFT, Healdsburg Holistic Health News 2000
For many years music for me was something everyone else got to do. I always had friends who were musicians or involved in the music world in one dimension or another. But I always felt it was something I could never do. I was gifted in other ways as a healer and psychotherapist but not musically.
