What If — Everyone Started the Workday Dancing?

When I spent some time in India, there were many things that were striking. But one that I found most so was when I visited a friend’s office and he asked me to join in on their lunch break. Thinking I was just signing myself up for more curried dal and roti, I said sure. Then riotous dancing broke out and everyone—and I do mean everyone—joined in. The sheer joy of it can’t be translated. But I can tell you, everyone went into their afternoon work with great energy.

Seeing this video reminded me of that. I posit that anyone who owns a company should immediately implement this as a new tradition. I dare you to watch this and not feel […]

Planet Earth Team Humanity

messy cakeWhen did it happen that we’ve come to live in a time where it has somehow become socially acceptable to publically behave badly by expressing anger and frustration, and a willingness to harm others. Whether by yelling, name-calling, flipping someone the bird, or worse threatening someone’s integrity or safety.

And, conversely, showing signs of sensitivity and vulnerability are frowned on as being weak.

Not an upside down cake I have any interest in taking a slice from.

What if we remembered to start doing and saying even tiny, decent things instead?  What if we extended the great power of kindness and compassion, and remember that we’re all on the same team–Planet Earth Team Humanity.  Now there’s a […]

Mind Meld

Several times a day, Graidy comes and sits on my lap, and then gently presses his forehead to my forehead, with his nose to my nose. He does this with deliberate precision, until we are staring eye-to-eye. Then he closes his eyes and breathes his warm breath on my face. I feel his body relax. We stay like this, merged, for several seconds.

I wonder, is he trying to read my mind? I’ve no doubt that if he could climb into my skin, he would; he loves me that much. Maybe he just needs to feel my breath on his face. I try to read his mind. I decide that I’m his touchstone […]

I Understand…

I’ve never been one to turn away from the raw and real, and nitty gritty about life. I don’t seek it out, but if it comes looking for me, I’ve tried to equip myself to the best of my ability to meet it. Hence my training as an EMT, my training in psychology, and my involvement with dog training and rescue. I figure that pretty much covers most of the bases.

As life often has a tendency to bunch up, I’m in a period where many people I know are being faced with emotionally wrenching decisions. The phone has been busy…

Two calls last week were from opposite sides of the same coin of a very tough decision.

One was from a woman […]

How to Tell if the Moon is Waxing or Waning

Here’s a simple way to tell if the moon is growing toward full or waning toward new.

Just remember that “C” is the 3rd letter of the alphabet which is lower (smaller) than “D,” the 4th letter of the alphabet, which is higher (bigger). So when the curve of the moon makes a “C,” it’s waning. And when the curve makes a “D,” it’s waxing.

C = #3 (less than #4)- Waning – loosing light toward New Moon

D = #4 (greater than #3)- Waxing – growing in light toward Full Moon

Because you should know.
