    Return to Moonbeams Home in a Jar

    Return to Moonbeams Home in a Jar

    The nice thing about little stories is you can listen to them again and get something new the second time. I think that might be the case with this story. Our lives wax and wane but one thing remains the same, creativity is a reflection of our brightness  ... and sometimes our darkness.  This episode sheds some light on the creative process.

    "Sometimes when we just let .. ideas go  out the window, we can practice trusting that the next idea may make us better off than we are. But I think what is truer, is that we are fine just the WAY we are. … in our darkness, our light,   our emptiness, our fullness, and each time we start over anew in whatever we do ."

    The Red Carpet

    The Red Carpet

    In this episode, peacocks, cat hair, and acting "as if" all play a part in the power of a daydream to transport us to a red carpet and the confidence that can ensue by doing so.

    Written, narrated and engineered by Jill Badonsky with guest voice, Robin Brisebois.

    The Rain Again

    The Rain Again

    This is a Re-release of the episode called Rain because it just feels like people need a little relaxation and reverie and when I listened to it again, it seemed new, that's the nice thing about forgetting stuff.

    The Massage

    The Massage

    This episode  illustrates how the writer (that would be me), can be influenced by TV shows and movies from the 60s and 70s, a zigzag carpet design that asks me to dance, and the altered state of consciousness one can get into when daydreaming while getting a massage. And of course, there's a nugget of wisdom.
    Sometimes it's more painful not to follow a creative call than it is to follow one that goes nowhere.

Butterfly Thoughts

Ooohhhh..... thank you. Thank you THANK YOU!!! I’m so happy to hear your voice again. Listening to Butterfly Thoughts I was transported into whimsy and wonder and even though it was only 5 minutes in length it removed hours of “the collective stressors” our nation is undergoing. I want to listen to the next episode but have decided to savor the levity of this one. I look forward to tomorrow. Would these be appropriate to share with my middle schoolers to begin art class with? I love you Jill. I miss you - I think maybe I miss you more now but that’s alright. I forgive you. ☺️😎🤓❤️😍
