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.

Rocks Crumble
Had an insight today that had me laughing at the perfect absurdity while speaking with my friend Gail Lynne Goodwin from Inspire Me Today.  She had called to offer loving support with the roller coaster ride that has been my life of late,  and we were musing about being adult orphans since both se

Living in the Questions
  Since I don't have a television, the only times I watch are at the gym, at other people's homes or (as I am doing right now), in the hospital. Propped up in bed with yet another health challenge. A little more than a month ago, it was a heart attack. Back in November, it was shingles and i

Power to the Peaceful
      I was a child during the Viet Nam War. Images of destruction, napalm, death, protests, tears, verbal and sometimes heated physical altercations between those in favor of the conflict and those opposed to it, streamed across our television screen daily. War never

Heart Song
  Lately, I have been more acutely aware of the connection between the cardiac muscle that keeps blood pumping through my body and sustains this corporeal existence and the emotional center that has made my thus far, more than 55 years on the planet worthwhile. Going on month two of my new l
