Welcome to Midnight Pages
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep.
You’re awake for a reason.
Night Owls are the babies who kept everybody awake all night.
They laid in bed and counted their breaths and read under the covers by flashlight.
They do their best work at night.
“Sleep hygiene” doesn’t make a difference. They’re just different. Neuro-divergent.
Maybe they eventually realize the night has secrets to tell them.
Insomniacs are different. I know what that feels like: frustrated, sick and unable to focus. The world says terrible things will happen if we don’t sleep, so we try everything to get our 8 hours. Nothing works.
But insomnia may not be a life sentence. It could be a season, not forever.
I was up for a reason and maybe you are too.
Maybe the night has something to tell you.
I am a witch, a mystic and a writer. I love archetypes, symbols, magic and the night.
I wrote Midnight Pages because I got sick of fighting my nature and feeling doomed because I don’t get enough sleep.
I think it’s time for all of us to listen to our wise guides and intuition. To become who we’re supposed to be: to create and explore.
This book is my little encouragement to live the way you’re meant to live and really just be as you are.
The practice of Midnight Pages is my alternative to Morning Pages because as popular as that practice is,
no insomniac is going to get up at 6:00 to write.
We just finally fell asleep.
I hope this book serves you.
Sharing Love and Blessed Be,
Makes A Fantastic Gift!
“Finally a creativity guide for those solitary insomniacs who are most inspired in the darkness; a clever counterpoint to the insufferable 6am morning people crowd who seem to dominate the self-help genre.”

I look up from stirring sauce and my eye twitches. The cherry tree has disappeared and the window is black.
Is the shadow beyond the glass a someone or a something?
Then everyone comes home, piling in.
Summer closing down has me suspicious and unbalanced; “off”, panicky or crotchety; disoriented. Starting and stopping things. Literally, the world tilts as I walk to the garden and it feels like falling.
Do you feel it too?
Do you need a sign? This is it. Florence Scovel Shinn was a New Thought author from the early 20th century, which was the school of thought that evolved into the Law of Attraction spirituality. I found a compilation of all her books at the thrift shop on Saturday....
The movie Jaws changed the beach for lots of us (of a certain age) forever. For at least one summer none of us kids went in the water. We just lay on the sand without sunscreen, vying for that Coppertone tan. I remember my friend Lauren fell asleep with her arms over...
I don’t care what happens to you, it means something. Never mind whether or not you caused it through your negative, out- of–the-vortex thinking. I am not talking about your subconscious childhood programming that blocks you from wealth or success or healthy...
Well, Hello Again I am on a month-long book tour with Bewitching Books Tours and this article is from one of guest blog opportunities. I write about one of my favorite topics – gardening. I have a micro flower farm on Long Island, where my grandparents farmed a...
This week my book Midnight Pages is on tour! This is the blogpost I wrote for A Bewitching Guide to Halloween all about the Motherpeace Tarot deck and the archetypes and symbols of the deck and the night. Feel free to leave comments. Hi There! Thank you for welcoming...
When I was in my late twenties I lit a fire and burned all my journals. It wasn’t a ritual, I was disgusted by how I kept repeating the same sh*t over and over -- with my father, my relationships and with the moods that whipsawed me and made me a holy terror to work...
I am shifting my flower farm, Your Vintage Blooms to a permaculture model. I’ve already been no-till gardening, eg. I don’t disrupt the soil with turning it over to plant every spring. For the past four years I’ve let the rototiller stay broken. Permaculture goes...
Sorry this might be long-ish and passionate… This week somebody told me they’d met a witch and learned a lot from her. A weird doubt came up: Is that woman witchier than me? Wait! Am I witchy enough? WTF? Witchy enough for what? Once, a guy told me he didn’t want to...
How did you get here? Wicca found me when I was 24. I always knew I was looking for something. It was long before the internet so there was no such thing as “going online” and nowhere to “post” for a coven to join. And anyway, I was a solitary even then. It was just...
Hi. This post has several links. Marketers know you’re not supposed to use links because they send readers away to other sites. Whatever. You can follow the links down the rabbit hole if you want. Or skip to the spell/practice at the end. I also know links can be...
