We have forgotten that whole galaxies exist within our grasp. –PG Hi! Welcome to the internet home of Pam Grout. I am the author of 16 books, two screenplays, a live […]

Everything leans on everything else

“The only true privilege in life is to love.”– -Justin Faerman I’m totally jazzed about meeting some of you at this Sunday’s Amazingly Awesome Benefit Concert for the Taz Grout 222 Foundation.

Stay close to the love

“Everything rises to truth.”—Emma Curtis Hopkins Oh my gosh, you guys! I’m super excited and grateful and well, I probably oughta warn you right now: this post may get a bit annoying.

No expectations, no problems

Thoughts are not real, Part II

“As soon as you have made a thought, laugh at it.” — Lao Tzu So I’m sitting in a little café called El Gato Feo. For those who know Spanish, please know it’s only a joke. There’s no such thing as an ugly cat. Just like there’s no such thing as an ugly reality. There’s […]

This just in: you don’t have to believe everything you think

“All the things that truly matter—beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace—arise from beyond the mind.”–Eckhart Tolle Hello loves! I just yesterday flew to Ajijic, Mexico for another glorious month in the Sierra Madres. I’m here to write, to hike and to enjoy this stunning climate.
