Martin Musical Montage

Honoring what would have been the 82nd birthday of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. For the past quarter century, in this country, people have been encouraged to make it a ‘day on’, rather than a ‘day off’ as they take up the reins that were dropped when shots rang out and took the life of a man who stands as an example of what can be accomplished when faith meets action.

Service projects cross country range from offering emotional/spiritual/physical nourishment in a soup kitchen or shelter, picking up hammer and nails with Habitat For Humanity, cleaning up a vacant lot, visiting people in nursing homes or who are shut in at home, becoming a reading mentor, Big Brother or Big Sister, picking up groceries for an elderly or ill neighbor…the list and the needs are endless.

Uncovering My Heart
  I attended a workshop this afternoon that was facilitated by an old friend that I had not actually met hug to hug until today. Her name is Ambika Devi, author of the cosmic journey called Lilith which combines historical teachings, powerful legends, in this case the s/hero's journey, as

Life Smoothie
In conversation with my flight attendant friend Jewelee Landis, about whom I have written many times over the years, we were musing about life being like a smoothie. She, like most of us, wears many hats.  Hers- wife, mom, daughter, granddaughter,  friend, doggy and kitty mom and now grandmom to n

What Does Your Facebook Page Say About You?
What did we ever do before the Phenom of Facebook?  It is where people turn for companionship and to relieve boredom. To learn what is happening in the world, without watching the news. It serves the purpose of entertainment and to gain a different perspective,  as well as to rally the troops for

For Me
I had a revelationary thought today as I recognized that for much of my adult life, I have done things for the benefit of others first and foremost, or to please someone so as to gain or not lose love and/or approval. Now, since the heart opening experience in June, I do more things for my own satis
