Cosmic Coincidence

My definition of cosmic coincidence are those events that have me shaking my head in bewildered awe, asking “What are the chances that such a thing could happen?”  My answer is always the same. “100%, since it occurred.” It is […]

S for Surrender

Yesterday was brought to me by the letter ‘S’ for surrender. At cardiac rehab in the morning, I blasted out a whole bunch of energy on the elliptical and treadmill, so that by the time I got to the recumbent bicycle, […]

The Whisper of Trees

Lately I have taken to walk along the paths in beautiful Bucks County; a part of the country where I have lived since the mid 1980′s. It has rolling hills, Fall foliage which rivals that of New England, lovely meandering streams […]

Wise people are everywhere. Today I met a wise woman while waiting to see my cardiologist. She was the receptionist who greeted me from behind her sliding glass (slid open, of course) window.  When she asked how I was doing since my last visit and I gave her an update, she responded:  "You are tur

Cardia-versary
This morning marks 3 months since I experienced the kind of pain that cracks you open and has you revealing the emotional viscera that had long lay dormant. Literally at this moment, I was captured by the symptoms of a heart attack- searing heart burn pain, jaw tightness and wringing wet sweats. I s
