It’s been a while since I have written. I’m excited to share some great news!
A few weeks ago, my dear friend and colleague, Kelly A. Connor, announced she was starting a new online magazine called LumiNation. The magazine is about celebrating life, beauty, and love. The vision is to create a media outlet where the focus is on harmony and light, verses division and constant controversy. A place filled with sensuality, hope, inspiration, and humor.
I was so excited when she asked me if I wanted to be part of it and write a column for the Beauty section. My immediate reaction was "YES!!!" I was psyched for the prospects of writing about new experiences of beauty, looking within to reveal new sensual passions of color, art, food and our senses.
The Magazine’s tagline is "Life As Church.” I paused and thought about this for a second, as I am Jewish. I thought this might cause a few to raise an eyebrow or two! I quickly laughed to myself, remembering that the temple I had gone to on Shabbat for 23 years was in a converted church. It was one of the most beautiful places I had ever been. I remember having many discussions with Jewish people about what it meant to be inside of a church to pray. Most said, “It's a beautiful space and I’m here to connect to something, whether that be God, others, or myself.” Church was a metaphor for the unity of love and connecting us all.
There’s a saying “Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.” Well, the magazine is dedicated to exactly that. The intent behind LumiNation Magazine is to shine light on and celebrate the beauty, spirituality and divinity in and of everyday life and living. I'm happy to be a part of something that aims to touch many people in a positive way as it grows.
I’m thrilled about this magazine and I hope you will enjoy all the new beauty posts coming your way. My first column is called Color: A Love Story.
Enjoy…. wishing you all a day of colorful wishes,
