Friday-Bliss Kiss For Your Weekend

 

As your sweet delight to enter into your weekend…..bring to mind a time when you felt most alive, most vibrant. Where were you? Were you on vacation at an exotic destination or in your own back yard, feeling like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz chanting, “There’s no place like home.” ? Take a moment to look around in your imagination station and use all of your senses to drink in this time and place. Add color and sound to the mind movie. See who might be in your personal paradise with you. Be aware of how your body feels while you are there. Now, the beauty of this experience is that you are absorbing the awe and your body is likely feeling the sensations as if you are experiencing it in the moment. Our minds and bodies are so intricately linked that we can’t tell the difference. Carry this with you even if your current weekend plans are nothing more exciting than doing the laundry or mowing the lawn.

    Your words are wonderful, Edie, and many should benefit from them… and on a daily basis. As you said: “Our minds and bodies are so intricately linked that we can’t tell the difference.”
    Know this so well… and thanks for reminding us, and me.

International Day of Friendship
    " Ya  gotta  have friends."  So go the lyrics to Friends sung by the Divalicious Bette Midler.  To my way of thinking, every day is one in which I celebrate friendship. According to the United Nations, July 30th is International Friendship Day. This peacemaking body proclaime

When I Was A Boy
I have been following a thread on a group Facebook page  for The Good Men Project  that was prompted by a video I had posted that showed a young woman being harassed by two young men while she was walking home from school. What happens next is conversation stirring.  One by one, other men step u

Life Is Like A Box of Chocolates
Photo credit:  Alex Lowy   I am open to miracles wherever they appear. Sometimes they show up in the form of a man with a buzz cut, decked out  in a white suit and sneakers, toting a well worn suitcase, plastered with all kinds of stickers as he meandered around the grounds of Wiggins P

Foolish Notion
    Lately I have been rolling through my mind thoughts about origin of violence in the world. I saw a video recently in which Whoopie Goldberg was explaining a statement she had made that it was okay for a man to hit a woman back if she hits him first. If she didn't want to be h
