Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures

Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures

BEGIN IT!!!!

Whatever you
can do or dream you can, begin it.  
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.            

   -  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe -

 

Imagine my
surprise to find a small box from a jeweler whose work I so admire but have
never met – BB Becker.  He partners
powerful words with beautiful design and creates jewelry that embody the
concept of “wearing your word.”  (bbbecker.com)

His thanks
for unexpectedly receiving a gift of my latest book, “Live With Intention” was
an equally unexpected gift.  Goethe’s
words rest on my shoulders and the pendant is above my heart. This reminds me
so very much of my liberal paraphrase of a text from Dueteronomy eleven: 18-21.

The
important words of your soul:

Deposit them
in the bank account of your heart, paint them on your soul, write them on your
hand, wear them like jewelry, let them lead what you teach and say, let them be
the spice in your conversation, may the be the road you walk, the light of dawn
that greets you and the lullaby that sends you to sleep.

"In Case of Emergency..."
There are two lines that people have to fill out when enrolling in school, in a new program, camp, new doctor... "Nearest relative."   "Person to call in case of emergency." In LIVE BOLDLY I explore several sides of the concept of family.  There's the family that you are born into and then

Wondering About Racism, Jingoism and All The Other ISMS
Conversation around equality is uncomfortable. To begin with.  This is not a fresh circumstance. Equality has been a core component of conflict over the ages. Race. Age. Gender. Belief. Economic state. Land ownership. Ownership of all sorts.  It is disturbing for so many reasons. The way chauvinis

Do You Hate House Work?
I formalized an approach to house making last year. An approach I'd inadvertently applied (willy nilly) for many years.  I created a set of cards (that I offered in a bundle) titled THREE MINUTES, Seven Minutes and ELEVEN MINUTES.  Those were the most common time frames that various house keeping
