 Hello, dear friends!

The Bardo Group has merged with Bequine Again, a B-zine featuring

an international collective of artists, poets, writers, and storytellers fostering peace, proximity and healing

through our love of the arts and humanities.

Please come visit!



  1. Cool! Sounds like a great venture and as always, love the pic!

    I enjoyed looking at their website and even saw you listed on the team page (way to go!!). I liked the link to the pictures of the women taking care of each other. Very refreshing.

    I hope to hear more from them in your blog posts.


    1. Dear Nancy,

      I’ve been a part of The Bardo Group for a couple of years now as their resident storyteller/photographer, and I love it. Jamie Dedes founded the Blogazine. She is a talented poet and such a good person.Here is a link to her work:

      Thanks so much for the visit, and for taking the time to connect–I hope your New Year is going well!


      1. P.S. The post of all those wonderful women is by Priscilla, who is also on the core staff of The Bardo. She is a great photographer and writes thought-provoking essays.

  3. Beautiful images of women sharing and caring, Naomi.

    1. Thank you, Sylvia. I love them too. The featured photos were taken by Priscilla of Scillagrace.( who is also on the staff of The Bardo Group.

    This sounds awesome. I’ll check it out. I wanted to say hi before I moved off to check. 🙂 Hope you are having a great start to 2015.

    1. Hi Marsha,
      Thanks for the visit. I have great hopes for 2015, and I hope it’s a good year for you too!

    Naomi, this is such an enticing way to get us to peek at the place you are inviting us to look at! I would enjoy those gifts the collective fosters, peace, proximity and healing. Wow! Looking forward to peeking but will have to come back for a longer stay. Leaving the library for dinner and home…

    1. Thank you, Robin! It’s great to hear from you–I love that photo too. In it my daughter Bea reminds me of some little tree spirit, or perhaps a personification of innocence.

      I hope you had a nice dinner out!

  6. Elyse says:

    What fun! I’m off!

  7. Thanks for sharing! I’m jumping back into spending more time on WordPress instead of other social media. I’m thrilled to get back to your blogs. 🙂

    1. Hi Angela,
      Nice to see more of you on WordPress! I hope you are well and that the New Year brings you great success in your life and in your writing!

  8. A beautiful collective. May its caring, healing, peace arrows fly around the world, cause the world sure does need it!

    1. Thank you, Sarah. I know that the pen is mightier than the sword. I love the image of peace arrows, which I have never heard before. Perhaps where they land, it makes a tiny tear in the darkness and lets a little light shine through.

  9. have bookmarked it for a leisurely peruse!!!

  10. An inspiring group that brings about togetherness, unity, healing, comfort and hope. Beautiful images that exudes warmth, joy and light.

    1. Thank you for the visit, and for sharing your perception. I have heard it said that it takes one to know one. Every word you used could also be describing your own blog, which embraces all of the ideals The Bardo Group celebrates.
