Total Strangers?

Everyone we now know and love was once a stranger. I live by that maxim when I consider that there was time when those dearest to me weren’t even on my radar screen. Taking into consideration past lives, I acknowledge […]

Whirling Magic~

    Curly hair tumbled about and mischievous gleam in his eyes,exemplifying the energy with artist, author, interviewer  and conscious entrepreneur, Gene-Manuel Whirling lives his life. I have been delighted to know this man for the past year or so, […]

Stay In My Heart

  Our biological hearts are such complex organs; a series of veins, arteries,  muscles, ventricles, pathways for blood to traverse. It is also thought of as ‘the seat of the soul,’ and the place from whence our emotions emerge. Love, […]

Tumble Dry Low

  Inspiration arrives at any given moment, while engaged in the most mundane tasks. This morning while I was transferring laundry from the washer to the dryer, the words “Detach with love” echoed in my ears. Knowing exactly what that […]

Global Oneness Day

What if we were to take a look at our planet from on high? Would we see borders and boundaries that separate us?  Would we have a sense of tenderness as we gaze upon this living, breathing being that we […]

Awakening In America

    A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of co-creating an experience with a man whose intuitive healing work is profound. He shared information with me that he would have no way of knowing since we had not met until […]

Soul Plan

  On this chilly Fall-in-beautiful-Bucks County, PA morning, I am pondering the way of my life and the path it is taking; sometimes meandering and winding, sometimes certain and focused on where I want to go.  I still consider whether […]

Fire It Up!

(artist unknown at the moment, but will include the name once I identify her or him) This weekend, I attended a retreat that encouraged me to stretch all kinds of comfort zones, ‘going to my edge’, dropping façade and worn out […]

Writing Is Risking

  Tonight I interviewed one of my favorite writers- Dan Millman and his daughter Sierra Prasada who co-authored the book The Creative Compass: Writing Your Way From Inspiration To Publication on my radio show called It’s All About Relationships on […]

Cellular Busy-ness

Most people who know me would be more likely to say the opposite, that my cells and the bio-body that contains them are so busy that it would be hard to determine which moves at a more rapid pace. I […]

Vulner-ability

Lately I have risen in love with the words and ideas of a woman whose work is now in the spotlight; sister Social Worker and human researcher Brene Brown. I was introduced to her profound teachings on the now ubiquitous TED talk […]

Love Everybody

What if video cameras could be used to eaves-watch and record not just crimes, but acts of love and kindness?  Imagine what they would see with their ‘electric eyes’. I had the delight of waking up to a video this […]

Pre-Birthday Ponderings

  When the clock reads 5:36pm tomorrow it will mark the moment when I made my entrance into the world this time around (since I believe in reincarnation) with a grand ‘ta-da!’  Likely there was also a wail of dismay […]

On My Way

  A metaphor for life that I contemplate often is what I call The Hansel and Gretel Breadcrumb Trail. I gaze over my shoulder and see where the little crumbles have landed and follow them backward to take note of the […]

Surrender

  Tonight as I was facilitating a support group at the drug and alcohol outpatient program where I work as a therapist, we were exploring the concept of surrender.  Many of the 12 steps that are the foundation of AA […]

Living A Life of Gratitude

The cover of the book makes it seem as if it would be quite comfortable in a candy jar; rainbow colored confection with the words Living a Life of Gratitude: Your Journey to Grace, Joy & Healing scripted across it. […]

Once Upon A Time

  I have long had a love affair with words. When I was a kid, I would tote around Little Golden Books, Dr. Seuss’ wisdom and Highlights Magazines. The library up the street was my haven where my mother would […]

World Smile Day

  A smile is such a simple neuro-muscular event that most of the time we do it without even thinking about it. It tells people so much about our emotional state and even if we are not feeling over the moon […]

Hiding In Plain Sight

  Last night I was speaking with my talented singer songwriter friend Robin Renee and found myself musing about a phenom that sometimes feels like it plagues me, or at the very least is a source of frustration. I call it […]

Want It All?

      “Do you think it would be as much fun, Edie, if you could trade some of the happiest days of your life for not having to experience some of the saddest? Do you think it would be […]

Comfort Zone

What’s your comfort zone? As a child, geographically, it was my house and then my backyard, then my neighborhood and town. As I became a teenager, it expanded outward to the more distant homes of friends and then college and a […]
