Your Unique Gift

What is one thing that the faltering economy, anxiety and fear can’t take away? Your imagination!

Sifting Through to the Gems

I have been wondering what is the bigger picture; what is the meaning on a global and universal level? I sense that if we are awake we will see extraordinary acts both large and small. In my small sphere in the past two weeks I saw two sisters who haven’t talked in years connect over… Read more »

Novel Ways for Scary Times

We need novel ways to look at the unique health crisis upon us. The graphs of the spread of Covid-19 in this country and others scare me.

Is having 30 friends come to a party better than having 3 close friends whom you can trust with your most vulnerable feelings? Is working at a job that your parents and… Read more »

The Dangers of Wanting to Be Loved

I am a reasonable person. I have good judgment and can read a situation really well. I am secure and well-adjusted, considerate and articulate. But there is one area that overrides my trust in my intuition, and it does so without seeking permission from my otherwise mature, well-functioning mind. That is when I act out… Read more »

Puddle Jumpers

Puddles and kids go well together. Jumping, skipping, and splashing in puddles is a child’s domain. Kids seek them out, take a running start and feel the sensual pleasure of them, splashing for the sheer glee of it. Do you remember when it was such fun to stomp on water and watch it disperse in… Read more »
