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.

Wise people are everywhere. Today I met a wise woman while waiting to see my cardiologist. She was the receptionist who greeted me from behind her sliding glass (slid open, of course) window.  When she asked how I was doing since my last visit and I gave her an update, she responded:  "You are tur

Invulnerable and Invincible?
  Yesterday, in the midst of a radio interview with Kerri Kannan,  I was asked a question about vulnerability. It is a topic that has become as familiar as the fingers typing these words. I was awakened to it when viewing a TEDTalk by Brene' Brown a year or so ago. It doesn't come easily to

The Now What Club
This morning, I joined two dear friends for brunch at Mal's Diner in Skippack, PA.  After a heart-healthy workout in cardiac rehab, I had a heart- happy  meal of egg whites, spinach (no cheese), fresh fruit instead of home fries and dry (no butter) whole grain toast. Yvonne Kaye has been my mentor

Enjoy Every Moment
Feeling emotionally raw at the moment, having just returned from a day of honoring my friend Delane Lipka. I had written about another extraordinary day in a previous Beliefnet article called In the Garden of Eden that described a gathering of kindred spirits that had been organized by Delane. For d

Cardia-versary
This morning marks 3 months since I experienced the kind of pain that cracks you open and has you revealing the emotional viscera that had long lay dormant. Literally at this moment, I was captured by the symptoms of a heart attack- searing heart burn pain, jaw tightness and wringing wet sweats. I s
