  I met Susan Herrick back in the 1980’s when this music therapist turned singer songwriter was beginning what has been a twenty some year musical journey. A multi-instrumentalist and sacred sound healer, she has a 2  1/2 octave vocal range […]

Pass It Onword

Back in November, as I was meandering the aisles at the Mind Body Spirit Expo in King of Prussia, PA, I came to a booth at which two women were beaming beatifically. In front of them was a table of simple wares. […]

Noah and The Mensch

Please note that I am not a biblical scholar, so this blog comes from a place of curiosity and the workings of my own mind, rather than theological knowledge. This past Saturday, I sat in the sanctuary of a suburban […]

Sunrise Sunset- Blissful Book Review~

    “Sunsets are love notes written directly to you and last lines are always the same. Life is too short and too precious to dwell on anything other than gratitude.”- Gabe Berman Awe and gratitude are two of my favorite […]

Knockers UP!

  This morning, I had awakened before the dawn even remotely cracked open its metaphorical eyelid and even though I had shut mine a mere 6 or so hours prior, I was rarin’ to go.  Gear packed, a general theme […]

Randoms Acts of Flowers

  On a warmish ( above 50 degrees in what was a mostly low double/sometimes below zero winter) snow-melting Sunday, I ventured out with two fun friends, Patricia Gallagher and Kate Wiley to scatter joy on the streets of Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Trish […]

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 […]

Super-s/hero

Last week I met a courageous woman named Terri Levine. She doesn’t jump out of perfectly good airplanes or leap tall buildings in a single bound, but she is somewhat of a super-s/hero in my book. Every day, she faces […]

Blessed Are The Weird

My friend and fellow wordsmith Jacob Nordby (author of The Divine Arsonist) has created a sensation with these simple phrases that have been showing up all over the internet.  There is a method to his madness as he and sister […]

Yo-ga Adrianne!

      I didn’t come up with the title for this entry…it came through my friend Robin Renee as a response to a question I had asked. The image you are looking at is the steps of the Philadelphia Museum […]

Sharon Katz and The Peace Train

                                                                                                                         I have known Sharon Katz, for likely the last decade and am re-energized whenever I am in her presence. She of the fire-y red hair and the passionate persona, for music that speaks from the heart and to the […]

Happy Or Crappy

                                                                                This morning before leaving for work, I received an email from the Go Gratitude folks.  They are focused on the idea whose time is always NOW, that having a grateful heart and mind can open doors to all manner […]

A Wish Come True

When you wish upon a star….. dreams come true. What happens when you bring together a svelte, youthful looking octogenarian whose desire was to take a long distance truck trip and a singer-songwriter, interfaith minister, handy-woman, retired truck driver?  The […]

Come Out To Play

                                                                   I was perusing Facebook this afternoon and a friend had downloaded a video by Canadian singer songwriter Justin Hines. Having never heard this young man’s lyric-driven Country sound, I was taken on a musical and visual ride as images […]

Truckin’

                                                             I had written about my friend singer-songwriter Annabella Wood a.k.a. ‘Truck Driving Mama” when her song by that name had been released.  Her soul stirring music is heard at various interfaith communities of which she is a part; two among […]

Let The Beauty We Love

                                                    Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument. Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of […]

Mama-cakes

  There are times when even a chronological grown up needs a teddy bear to hug. Today is such a day. Sitting next to me as I type these words is a purple and white gingham bodied, floral vested, starry […]

Mensch

I have had the honor of knowing the remarkable young man that you will be reading about in a moment for the past four or five years. We have had conversations about spirituality, energy healing and martial arts. He has friends of all ages […]
