Last night I went to a drumming circle.  After an opening ritual, we did some drumming together and then there was a check-in.  As the people there, one by one, shared what was going on in their lives I became […]

Your Favorite Things

Julie Andrews was right, it truly does help to remember your favorite things.  I love to ask people: What are your favorite things?  I love the variety of answers I get.  Some people list things and some people list activities.  […]

Remembering How to Play

posted by cgreb

When was the last time you let yourself play?  I’m not talking about sports.  They’re competitive and therefore the territory of adults.  Most games are competitive, too. I’m talking about FUN!  Dancing, twirling, skipping, hand-holding, giggling, make-believe….   Do you remember […]

What Is Most Important?
So, I have decided to take a break from writing this blog for a while. Although I have much to write about, sometimes the time, energy, and means to write it are not as available. And I’m in a place in my life right now where I don’t care to “push the river.” I have to prioritize how I use

A Time for Others and a Time for Self
We're all familiar with that timeless piece of wisdom found in Ecclesiastes: "There is a time for everything,     and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2     a time to be born and a time to die,     a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3     a time to kill an

Learning to Trust
I finally figured out what I'm doing wrong.  I figured out why I've been having so much trouble with Dad's move into the nursing home, with his recent decline, and with his current fevered state.  It's not that I'm afraid of him dying, it's that I don't want him to be uncomfortable.  I don't want
