Wiggly Lines

Read these lines this morning, offered by a Facebook friend named Louise Carter that gave me a chuckle: “Hmm, most interesting school run this morning! Dropped my youngest son at school and then walked home with my eldest Kal who […]

Attention

Because I was paying attention, this message came through to me through sleepy eyes this morning. A Facebook friend named Don Robertson was the messenger who delivered it to my heart. “Attention is a tangible measure of love. Whatever receives […]

Musitarian

I met Barry Goldstein at what for me was a paradigm changing event called Celebrate Your Life. His music reached out to me, as did his welcoming smile and open heart. I attended a morning workshop that had us chanting […]

Message Music

  Music is soul nourishing and the month of November offers a reminder that there is a huge buffet of  delicious, yummy, delectable, fat, calorie and cholesterol free  musical options. It is deemed  Positive Music Month by an organization call  […]

Saying Kaddish

  In two days, (11/26/11)  I will honor the first anniversary of my mom’s passing. Thanksgiving 2010 marked the last time I heard my mother’s voice, but not the last time I told her I loved her and would into […]

Gratitude Overflow

  One of my favorite activities is something that brings so much joy and juiciness that I do it all throughout the day. It enlivens and energizes me when I feel like I am running a quart low. It puts […]

Honoring JFK

  Last night I had a powerful and unexpected dream, involving the 35th President of the United States; JFK. In all my 53 years on the planet, I don’t recall ever having had this man enter my sleeping dream-scape. He […]

Sweet Surrender

There are times when it seems that the Universe is testing us to see if we are willing to practice what we preach. The past 24 hours seems to be a reflection of that concept. I began writing this blog […]

Beautiful People

  As a child of the 60’s I was weaned on the music of songbird Melanie Safka. She of the raven haired, raspy voiced visage who invited the ‘world to sing’, also honored the people who make the world a […]

What If?

  Two of the most majestic words in the English language that can be used to create or destroy are ‘what if?’  We say them or at least, think them, over and over throughout our day. Unfortunately they are often self […]

The Great Peace March

                                                                                    November 15th was the 25th anniversary of an event that shifted the consciousness of the planet. Dubbed The Great Peace March, it began with a hardy and heart-y band of intrepid folks whose intention was to promote nuclear […]

Meditation: The Complete Guide

  Hard to imagine one book so content rich about such a subject as vast as meditation, but nearly lifelong meditator, professor and practicing Quaker Patricia Monaghan and ecologist,  author and yoga instructor who has studied world religions Eleanor G. Viereck […]

Labyrinth

Like many spiritual practitioners, I chose to engage in a ritual to honor the numerologically auspicious date of 11/11/11 .  As timing would have it, I happened to be in Sedona, Arizona on Friday. In the midst of the Red Rocks vortices, […]

Spice For Living

While I was visiting my friend Dianne in Sedona, we perused neighborhood yard sales on 11/11/11/, since she was searching for fireplace tools.  We were guided by signs and arrows pointing the way to places that might have had what […]

Smiling at God

  Every day, I open myself to divine guidance and yesterday, mine came in the form of a message from my friend Cass Forkin who asked if while I was in Sedona, I would pick up a bracelet of deep […]

Why I Write

In the wee hours of the morning, I read this facebook posting by sex educator and author, Pamela Madsen. It reached a place deep within the recesses of my mind and echoed with a great big YES! “This is why […]

Unrealistic Dreams

    Author and speaker Tama Kieves, Awakening Artist and author of  THIS TIME I DANCE! Creating the Work You Love (How One Harvard Lawyer Left It All to Have It All!) shared a powerful set of ideas in a […]

Snow In Sedona

    Awoke this morning and gazed out the window to an unexpected scene. Not in  my own bed (that was expected), as I am in Arizona for the first time;  at the home of my friend Dianne Evans who […]

Finding New Pathways

    Although the dynamic Petey Silviera has all what I call those ‘alphabet soup letters’ after her name that indicate she has academic credentials and years of formal study under her belt, it is her compassion and dedication to […]

Book Lovers Unite!

  I was excited, delighted and totally jazzed to read that the first Saturday in November  is declared Book Lovers Day. I was nurtured on nouns, weaned on words, swaddled in synoyms, well versed in verbs and bathed in books…metaphorically speaking, […]

Restoring Life’s Missings Pieces

    There comes a time when all of the pieces literally fall into place and our past comes face to face with our here and now, present day reality. Our woundings and our wonder become one. Such is one of the premises […]

The Lifeguard is Off Duty
On vacation for the week and while shopping in Hilton Head, I saw a t-shirt that read "Lifeguard off duty. Save yourself". I laughed as I purchased it for someone at home. I was tempted to get another one for myself, but I resisted. I was a ...
