A year after my mother died a therapist thought I'd been grieving too long. So she prescribed me an antidepressant. Mindlessly, I filled the prescription and took the pills. When I had significant side effects after the first month, she prescribed me a different one. Seriously? I thought. Why am I . . .
This a story about my beautiful friend who got sick. Well, it's more than that, really. She was my very first friend in California. It was 1985 and we clicked right away. I moved away and came back a couple of times, but through it all we were friends. Soon after I returned again in 2010, she got . . .
Sometimes, you're called. I'm sure I've been called before but I wasn't always paying attention. This time, though I listened. And acted. I'm meant to help people with healing and so.... I'm thrilled to launch my new business today, A Healing Spirit, which you can find HERE. Here at . . .
Sometimes, I look at the moon, the beautiful moon, and wonder how we got here. Oh, I don't mean the human race. I mean our civilization, our people. How did we get to such a hateful place? What have we become? And how did it happen? Save . . .
Later that night i held an atlas in my lap ran my fingers across the whole world and whispered where does it hurt? it answered everywhere everywhere everywhere ~Warsan Shire . . .
Not too long ago I posted something that said Eventually you'll end up where you need to be, with whom you're meant to be with and doing what you should be doing. One of my friends weighed in with "But how long does it take!?" And my response was simple: "It takes as long as it takes." Thing . . .
Have you ever had a moment out of time that was, well, transcendent... so transcendent that the you felt it was almost supernatural? That it was so meaningful that it would last forever? I was thinking about a time like that all those years ago when I met the man who was a balm for my . . .
Save I started to write this night a friend just a few years older than I came over to tell us his cancer had recurred and he would be trying a new treatment that isn't as debilitating as chemotherapy. As he stroked Riley, he mentioned that the and his wife had discussed her impending retirement . . .
"I have many “spouses”–men and woman who are there for me in ways my husband simply cannot possibly be. I love him, but he is not everything to me, and if I thought he was, I’d be disappointed and lonely. We have a good marriage, a tight “family” bond between the two of us, but it is rounded . . .
Some good reading for you this weekend, even as the world spins in crazy ways. Dig in to a variety of interesting posts from Boomer blogs. Figuring out what to do about heart problems is complicated. On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about a report . . .
Lovingkindness meditation as described by Jack Kornfield is such a beautiful thing to do, especially (but not only) when we're working on forgiveness. It's so darn simple, but it does so much for us. So let me tell you about it. As if you were going to meditate, get comfortable in a quiet . . .
When a rather new friend gave me this last month, I was so touched. Because girlfriends really do matter in happy times and sad, and I'm not sure how I could live without them. But not all friends are created equal. When two longtime local friends heard my husband was having surgery, they . . .
A boatload of vitriol is being heaped on that awful man who sits in the Oval right now. And yes, he deserves it. He's rude. He's crude. He's mean. He's opportunistic. He's self-centered. All of those things are undeniable. And sickening. We know he's lower than pond scum. But I can't waste . . .
Whomever first said the devil's in the details was right. So right. Too right. It's going to be a couple more weeks until my new business goes public, I'm sad to report. Here's what happened: Several of my offerings required printing and because I wanted a quality product, I worked with a reputable . . .
Or, as I call it: Senior, Stoned and So Over It What happens when an 80-something year old woman tries weed for the first time? She's going to tell you about it below. Oh, and don't let her kid you: she ASKED for the edible. I did NOT suggest it. For the record, I think her exact words were "bring . . .
Save It's dark outside and I'm sitting alone deep in thought and I think I've discovered the key to understanding life. It occurs to me that we come into this life alone (unless we're multiples) and we leave alone. Birth and death, they're solitary things. We each have our individual experiences . . .
Compassion: the wish to see others free from suffering. Say what you will about politics. The thing that has me completely flummoxed is how many Americans are completely compassionless. How can this be true? I ask myself. But the support for pulling back on our most compassionate social . . .
This was supposed to be the day I announced my new business. But. Launch of my new business has been delayed. Why? A deadline-challenged consultant and a bad font choice, which spiraled into big-time schedule problems with the website and with printing. There's nothing to be done but fix it . . .
It's interesting how so many people bought into the Secret from the Oprah Winfrey point of view. Manifesting for them was all about achieving great wealth. After all, they reasoned, Oprah did it, so why can't we? Manifesting is pretty simple, it turns out. But it's just not as easy as it . . .
