I loved this the moment I saw it because it recognizes the human condition for most of us. Grounded in the tangible world around us, while recognizing the no-limits nature of the sky above--whether it's opportunity just waiting to be taken or spirituality--and that burning desire to do something to . . .
Do you ever wonder how many people think about making the most of their life? Of living fully and completely, in every sense of the word? Some seem to do this naturally, while others struggle. At school the other day, I had an epiphany. Our mentor and I were getting coffee in the school kitchen . . .
If you're lucky, your parents instilled lessons about how to be a good human. And if you're super-lucky, the lessons stuck. But in case they didn't, here are my tips on how to be a good human. Because we sure do need more good humans around here. Right? Be there. Being present with your friends, . . .
I know there are people who think we are born, live and upon death, fade to black. Period. End of story. I'm not one of them. It makes no sense that the this entire complicated system would be set up for...nothing. So why are we here? It's really pretty simple, in my view. We are here to . . .
The outrage and upset all over social media reflect the complete frustration many feel about the current state of the nation and the absolute loony-tunes who is "running" our country.

It was a starlit Valentine's night and we were in the Caribbean with friends. Romance was in the air. On the palm-tree enclosed patio, candles twinkled atop small dinner tables covered with red and white cloths that had been sprinkled with tiny red and silver hearts. We drank champagne that tasted . . .
It's always seemed really bizarre that the right-wing, ecumenical Christian folks speak the Scriptures but stand for everything Jesus was against. And nothing he preached. Go figure. Christianity gone wrong. I don't want to say "phony Christian" but yeah, that's how I see them. Christ would roll . . .
I think this is very true. It's certainly been true in my life. Consider the times when you've been asked...or even REQUIRED...to let go of something important. Maybe it's a job you loved and lost. Or a relationship in which you loved and lost. A family home. Maybe it's letting go of controlling . . .

Two really good doctors we see brought this to mind recently. Our GI doctor tells us his findings after a colonoscopy, right then and there. . . .
