Organizing the Whole

Mind, Body And Spirit

“The whole is more than the sum of its parts.”  ~ Aristotle I have a friend who can pack the essentials for a 10-day trip in a carry-on bag. By day her outfits coordinate, including jewelry and appropriate shoes, and at night she will have the right dress or slacks for a picnic on the beach or an impromptu dinner […]

How to Turn a Dime Into $800

Mind, Body and Spirit

“While it may seem small, the ripple effect of small things is extraordinary.” ~ Matt Bevin It’s not what you think. I’m not a financial wizard with a hot stock tip ready to reveal a quick way to get an 8,000% return on your money. Nope. My story has more to do with a little silver coin and the pop […]

Honoring the Voice Within

Mind, Body and Spirit

“Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.” ~ Will Rogers For as long as I can remember, I have had a dog in my life. As a child, my family always had a dog. We also had cats, turtles, rabbits, hamsters, salamanders and a baby chick that I won in a school raffle […]

A Wonderful Life

MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT


“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” As I wade through the thick of the Holiday Season with one hand hovering over a tray of hors d’oeuvres and the other wrapped around the stem of an earthy Merlot, I am eyeing the same pink shrimp on ice and pastry-wrapped wieners as the next person, but […]

Yoga Means Unity

MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT


“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.”                           ~ Dalai Lama On Friday, November 2nd of this year, a man entered a yoga studio in Tallahassee just before class was to begin. Assumed to be a student, he didn’t raise suspicion, but rather […]

Just Sit There

MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT


“In an age of constant movement, nothing is more important than sitting still.”                                         ~ Pico Iyer Thanksgiving 2018 is behind us already. Autumn swooped in on a caravan of vehicle transporters around the end of September. About that same time, […]

Beige

MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT


“Beige is atmosphere. It’s bisque, it’s ivory, it’s cream, it’s stone. It’s toast, it’s cappuccino. It’s well, it’s magic.” ~ Albert Hadley Years ago, when I was still living in Iowa, I attended a conference for Educators at the State Capital. The meetings were held in late November, after the chill of winter had settled over the Midwest, creating a […]

Days Like This

MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT


“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”     ~ Author Unknown I recently made the decision to fly to the Midwest on a last-minute whim. If everything fell into place, I […]

Judgment of Ourselves and Others

MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT


“Someone else’s opinion of me is none of my business.” ~ Rachel Hollis I’m reading a book called, “Girl, Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis. Ms. Hollis is a 35-year-old author, entrepreneur, wife and mother of four. Her story is interesting and her ambitions are bold and I’m sure the book is geared more toward a demographic of women younger […]

An Old Dog Teaches New Tricks

MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT


“We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare, and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It’s the best deal man has ever made.” ~ M. Acklam It was the coughing that initiated the worry. Not my coughing, but my aging cock-a-poo, Mocha. She’d cough in the night or after a nap. […]
