I am the queen of the long distance relationship and that includes friendships. My policy is, why let geography limit you? Here's why: because it means you can't be there in person when you want. And that was never more true that recently, when someone dear to me and 3,000 miles away needed help. . . .
We had our first Kona Brewing Company beer at a party we attended the other night. I wasn't surprised to see the brand, since our friends have a place in Hawaii, too, and go often. I WAS surprised at how much I loved the beer and how much it really did taste like Liquid Aloha. Good to know, since . . .
Girlfriend tells me that last holiday season she had the house guest from hell. Ok, maybe that's an exaggeration. But as she described it, her house guest was a bit inconsiderate. So the holidays are coming and she's anticipating more company. Maybe you are, too. Or maybe you're going away and like . . .
When I read this quote last month it stopped me in my tracks. Evaluating our friendships--and our friends-- is something we don't often do. But why not?

Imagine every cell in her/your body is dancing to her/your favorite song moving in perfect harmony to the uplifting melody that makes her/ your body come alive and frees her/you of all worries and fears releasing all illness and pain as healing, energy, hope and peace become the rhythm of . . .
Look. There's a lot of pain in the world and a whole bunch of it is caused by how people treat one another. We pay lip service to the Golden Rule, but how often do we actually practice it? For some of us, the answer is "not nearly enough." That's partly because we focus on our differences: . . .
If you don't have a full tank of crazy, we have nothing in common, that's what I say. I had lunch the other week with a new friend, someone I met via social media. Although we had never laid eyes on each other before, once we did, it was as if we'd known each other a very long time. Conversation . . .
Girlfriends are sisters that destiny forgot to give you. Oh, I'm not so sure that destiny forgets much. So it has to be purposeful. March came in like both a lion and a lamb, with an aborted visit to my favorite Tampa women friends. We share a certain understanding, a kinship, these women . . .
