Zen Kitty and Calvin and Hobbes

Look who Cheryl brought home. Calvin and Hobbes.

At first, I was very skeptical about Calvin and Hobbes. They would playfully bounce and chase each other in the lawn and garden, and I was afraid they would hurt themselves by falling off the rock wall. They tried to include me but they made me nervous and I could only watch. Sometimes their spirited activity was too much for me so I’d go off and do what I’ve done my whole life.

Then finally, I realized Calvin and Hobbes were okay. I could see how Cheryl loves them just as much as she loves me. I made the effort to respond to the times they try to connect with me. I started to participate in their escapades and discovered it was a glorious time. I still do my own thing, but I also share time and happy energy with Calvin and Hobbes. I now understand when Cheryl reminds me that we all are helping and watching out for one another while discovering the newness of love and life.

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
