Friday: Bliss Kisses

 

As you enter your weekend, I offer you a bliss kiss, your weekly invitation to pleasure. What is your favorite food that you can enjoy, guilt free? Indulge in it, savoring the taste on your tongue, consciously aware of the here and now moment, since far too often, we rush through our food intake, not realizing that nourishment comes in all forms. Long ago, I gave up the idea of ‘guilty pleasures’ and now simply just immerse in pleasure. Recently, I dove into the delight of coconut ice cream from Gehringers in New Hope. It was actually a doubly enjoyable experience since I ‘got to’ take a leisurely stroll down the street of one of my favorite towns. Think ‘Key West on the Delaware’, ‘Haight Ashbury on the East Coast’ and ‘Greenwich Village In The Country’ and you have a sense of this suburban Philadelphia town. People watching is another treat, as I found myself smiling at the colorful display of humanity, some walking hand in hand, others gathered in groups to celebrate a glorious sunshine-beaming Spring day.

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
