My name is Leslee Horner.  I am a wife, mother, writer, and seeker.  I believe that we spend our entire lives on a path of self-discovery.  All of us search without knowing part of the time and some of us walk through an entire lifetime without ever consciously meeting ourselves.  Then there are some that ask the questions who am I? and what am I here for? and miraculously watch the answers start to unfold before them.  I have been on such a path and have learned more about myself in the last two years then I had discovered in the thirty-two that preceded them.  Doors continue to open and close, people arrive and exit, the leaves on the oaks in my front yard grow and then fall, and I am consciously aware that all of it makes a difference in my life.  As I continue this journey, I have decided to share it here.  These days, some of the priceless moments in my life are when I share a fear or a mistake with someone and they say they’ve been there too.  There is something magical about knowing you’re not alone.  My hope is that as I put my thoughts and experiences out there, you can find something to relate to.  And if I make it to the moment where I truly meet my Self….I’ll know I didn’t travel alone.

    hello there
    i read your comment from Kelli’s page on having 2 c sections. Education is good as so many woman do not even bother and rely on the experts to handle everything. Birth is my passion, as a mother myself, former labor doula and now as a conscious birth, pregnancy and parenting teacher. My web site is gone as I am revamping everything. So many shifts for me in the past 6months. One being I took a breath work training and that cleared the path for more abundance & opportunities to come to me. I’d love to caht sometime. Peace Shalom Shanti Linda

      Rita-Will you put your blog link on here for me? (although it does seem like I’ve been to your blog before.) Thanks!

        Leslie, I am sorry, I didn’t realize my comment wouldn’t link back to me. You can find my blog @ http://renovatingrita.wordpress.com.

        yeah Rita, I know when I comment on another wordpress blog, my name is not clickable. Can’t figure out why not though.

    I love all the art you’re putting on your blog this week! The newspaper editor in me is very happy.

      The photographer on Twitter @bobolary told me I really should start including images. It wasn’t the first time it had been brought to my attention. I even mentioned your blog as one that always looks so great with pics for every post. So, yes, I am working on being less lazy and giving a gift to all the visual people out there!

      • Renee November 18, 2009 / 8:20 am

        I spent so many years designing newspaper layouts that I had it ingrained how important art is. And I love finding the perfect photos or illustrations for my posts. One of my favorites is my picky eater post. Those pictures were perfect. 🙂

        As for the clickable name — there must be a setting you need to change. Mine works fine.

    Hi Leslee,

    Thank you for being so honest in your writing.
    I would very much like to feel that I could write honestly without the fear of being judged.
    It’s easy when things are wonderful, but it is entirely different when there are so many complexities bombarding our relationships.
    I know I have a ton of experiences that I could draw on. I have written poetry in the past.
    I appreciate reading your blog. You are upbeat and positive and real, and it helps me to feel your gut level communication and encourages me to want to write.

    I resonate with so much of what you are saying! We are all on beautiful journeys — as soon as we recognize that, we can grow so much more! I love that your front yard has oak trees and that you included that — trees are so spiritual to me. I love them. And, here in Oregon, we have lots of very unique oak trees — ancient ones, that have survived many fires. They remind me to continue growing, onward, and upward!

    • lesleehorner April 25, 2010 / 8:13 pm

      Thank you so much for stopping by, Cat. I will have to put pics up of our oak trees sometime…
