Exiting The Fast Lane…

We’re all suffering from “chronic busy” and we need to exit the fast lane before we crash and burn! Summers used to be fun! The pace of life slowed down. We were outdoors from 8am–8pm. There were bikes to ride, places to hide, homemade popsicle to eat, and stars to gaze at. I’m not just… Continue reading Exiting The Fast Lane…

Oh, That’s Where…

It amazes me when the spirit and the person finally link up – I believe these are what Oprah refers to as “Ah-ha moments.” I experienced one of those yesterday. Ironically not in deep thought or meditation but, after arguing with the Sync System on my Ford Focus. When I finished shouting (which doesn’t work… Continue reading Oh, That’s Where…

Harsh Realities…

I’ve had a lot of difficult news to absorb in the past thirty-six hours. The problem is this type of news happens everyday.  I’ve listened to and read about, child abuse, and molestation, suicide, alcoholism, health disorders, emotional outbursts and heartache!

Focused Intention…

I love things that I can focus my intention on, especially things that may appear simple to the untrained. Two examples are drawing a sword in Iado practice and swinging a golf club. I’ve attempted both. I say attempted because I’ve yet to even gain novice status at either. Both are extremely frustrating and calming… Continue reading Focused Intention…

Last Word…

As I’m writing this there is a thunderstorm passing through with torrential rains. This whole scene reminds me once again, we (people) don’t have the last word. That’s left up to the universe and in this case Mother Nature! It doesn’t matter how much technology we’ve developed or how much wealth we’ve obtained or any… Continue reading Last Word…

Getting To Know You…

We spend so much time building relationships, yet we rarely take the time to get to know ourselves. I don’t mean knowing the image you created; A martial artist, teacher, former nurse, armature photographer, runner, Aries… The list of descriptions of what we do and have, are not who we ARE! I’m talking about the… Continue reading Getting To Know You…
