Right Place Right Time

I love speaking at services in various faith communities, especially if people bring their open hearts and minds. Today I had the joy of offering ideas at New Thought Philadelphia which is aligned with the concepts of Ernest Holmes. Science […]

Quaintrelle

  I pride myself on knowing lots of words. From the time I was a child, they fascinated me. My mother used to say that I “began speaking at 6 months and haven’t stopped since.”  She was right about that. […]

Compassion

  As the world prepares to honor another ‘day that will live in infamy’ tomorrow and some will focus on the horrendous violence that led to loss of life and emotional safety, there are others who will be turning their […]

Unremarkable
We all like to think of ourselves as extraordinary, exceptional, and  a slew of other superlatives. Is there anyone who wants to feel ordinary, as if they have not accomplished anything of note? Chances are, since you are reading this, you have indeed achieved a modicum of success. Likely you le
