Cellular Busy-ness

I used to be harsh on myself when I took quiet time to do nothing; now, I savor it.

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 refer to myself sometimes as ‘functionally manic’ and can multi-task admirably and only occasionally drop a plate or two that I might be spinning. In the past week, I have forgotten a few appointments and feel like I am scrambling to keep up. Good thing I have calendars on line and in book form. As I am writing this, I am listening to Neil Young and considering the next line in this blog entry AND what I need to accomplish tomorrow AND do my radio show tomorrow night AND prep for a weekend in which I will be away, which means packing, setting up the GPS to get me to an interim and then final destination on Friday AND do laundry AND see clients AND do paperwork AND in between those activities, ‘normal people stuff’ like sleeping, eating and bathing…oh and breathing if I want to be able to continue to accomplish all those tasks.

Another friend, Jenny Perry shared her wisdom: “Sometimes when you feel you’ve run out of steam on your dream, your soul is just refueling.”

I told her that my dream and I need refueling and that I am feeling inspired, tired and wired. Just today I was speaking with a co-worker and said that I need an intentional vacation during which I can rest and re-create…not by accident, happenstance or illness. My cells could use a trip to someplace ahhhh inducing; doesn’t have to be very far. It would involve quiet time in the embrace of nature, with massage and relaxing music; lovely company and healthy food. Setting intention for creating that sooner rather than later. I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, I intend to visit dreamland shortly which might just involve the scenario that I described above.

All of It
  Another one of those wee hours wake-ups when life beckons me to the keyboard to type what I may not be able to experience emotionally. I came upon the words of Panache Desai,  author and spiritual teacher who I had the joy of hearing back in 2011 at the Celebrate Your Life Conference in P

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
