Trying to live with heart and meaning.
"I'm responsible for the effort, not the outcome." I need to remember this so
I won't be disappointed when my best efforts don't bring the sought-after results.
Walking lightly on the earth...trying to take only what I need. Constantly reorganizing my life and myself..."till by turning, turning (we) come round right." (Borrowed from an old Shaker Hymn.)

A very simple, yet sometimes difficutl tactic is to MOVE. I don't mean move to a different neighborhood or city. I mean move your body and/or move your stuff. Feng Shui. Hanta Yo!
Seriously, I know what it feels like to be in the grasp of depression that sucks the life… Read full post »
On my way home from my morning walk, I spied it lying right in the middle of my path. I didn't have to turn left or right or break my stride at all. How could I resist. I brought my right foot back and let lose with a strong, swift kick as my toe… Read full post »
When I wanted a bedtime story, sometimes my mother would tell me this one. She was probably tired on those nights and I have pulled this on my own kids and g'kids. I love this story:
I'll tell you a story of Annie McCory
And now my story's begun.
I'll… Read full post »
Here's something to think about.
I love words from other cultures having the duel roles of both a farewell and a greeting. My sister, who lives on the big island of Hawaii, always ends her emails to me using the well-known phrase "Aloha". I try to avoid it because it has always… Read full post »
Here is a smattering of the work I did for approximately 5 years before the fall of the real estate and construction markets. Every wall or garage door was a brand new "blank sheet of paper" waiting to be transformed into something creative. Doing the faux metalic copper garage doors was… Read full post »
Often, and again this morning, as I'm making my bed, the thought goes through my mind as I spread and straighten the sheets, "I love my bed!"
This past winter, I bought heavy, micro-fiber gray sheets for it that felt cozy and warm on a cold winter's night, inviting me to snuggle… Read full post »
I was thinking about writing something regarding this label my generation got stuck with. I felt like we deserved ( a good word for us Baby Boomers) something that talked about us, not just a byproduct of what our parents did bringing us into the world.
As I was writing my article on… Read full post »
I have a fascination with the 30's & 40's era. Music has always been a reliable source depicting a society's time-line. Looking at the music that came out of this period portrays the style and emotions of a sturdy people… Read full post »
I used to be a cook at a health retreat. It was part of my job to teach about nutrition and a favorite quote I came across is: "Our bodies flourish or decline as we respect or disrespect them."
I think to make it really, really easy I'm going to start… Read full post »
These shots are out in a place where I used to live, my home was kind of the hub and we could go in any direction to visit these wondrous sites. They are quiet places of raw beauty and you definately feel a communication with nature and the Great Creator out… Read full post »
He was known as Many Feathers at the rendevouz. There was that familiar pang of fear for me of walking into the unknown on my way up to attend my first Mountain Man Rendevouz. I expected something of a biker gathering. The bikers have always reminded me of outlaw… Read full post »
The divorce began about a year or two before the actual paper was signed, this is probably normal. It didn't feel like a stereotype divorce to me. It didn't feel like a stereotype marriage either. Nothing customary in this relationship. This was'nt an ordinary "… Read full post »
