Living With Grace, Flow and Ease-Book Review

  What if you could invite three angels into your home who would accompany you through your days, assisting you in having, as I like to refer to it, a ‘rich, full, juicy life’? Would you issue a call and then keep the […]


Kindred Hearts

  Uncharacteristically quiet inside. The  air conditioner and my roommate speaking with her husband on the other side of the burgundy curtain, with the occasional beeps in the hallway are the only interruptions.  On a ‘normal day,’ I would be at work, […]



  “Breathe. You don’t have to get everything done right now.” I saw this posting on Facebook and it beckoned me to allow it to introduce this entry since it was a response to a prayer. It’s 3:39 a.m. on […]


Lifter Upper-er

In one way or another, we are all hoisted on the shoulders of the ones who came before us, like a child rising above the crowd on those of a parent, the better to watch the parade pass by. Many’s the time […]

Spiritual Colonic

  In the past 72 hours, with the actions of a man who I won’t glorify or glamorize by writing his name, countless lives have been changed; some by death and some by needing to live with the consequences. Unless […]

Lost and Found Part Two

  A few days ago, I reported that my new iphone had taken a vacay and hadn’t asked me to join it. As any adept spiritual practitioner might do, I combined both the practical and the prayerful. I went through […]

Lost and Found

Today I encountered a techno challenge that I know will resolve itself in the perfect way and with great grace and ease. A few hours ago, I wasn’t so sure. I had gone to the gym, toting with me, my […]

Everyday Miracles

  My friend Kayla Finlay is a walking, talking miracle. Having healed from cancer and lost children to miscarriage and watching another  of her five children face challenges with a condition called Gardner Syndrome, which is a form of cancer, […]

Angels In Our Midst

                                     When you hear the word ‘angel’, what image comes to mind?  Likely that of a glowing, winged being, adrift on a cloud, playing a heavenly harp or singing in a celestial choir. Not quite ‘real’, nebulous, the stuff of […]

Cookie Face

                                                                          Life is all about juxtaposition. Light and dark, laughter and tears, sadness and joy; blended together in a huge mixing bowl, stirred by the celestial chef. Today was such a day in which the bowl was filled […]

Trusting Her Yoga

I met  Mary Flinn a few weeks ago when my friend Peggy Tileston taught a Laughter Yoga class for World Laughter Day at Mary’s cozy yoga studio in Mt. Airy which is a culturally rich and diverse neighborhood in Philadelphia, where people greet each […]


                                                                  Writing this post as I am sitting in the terminal of the Ft. Lauderdale airport en route to Philadelphia after an end-of-an-era experience of, as one friend referred to it “dismantling my parents’ lives”.  My Dad died in 2008 […]
