RIP Easy

Jen is home sick with a stomach bug and I was thumbing through some of my friends’ blogs when I read that my friend and fellow blogger Easy Weimaraner crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  I am devastated. Easy was a kind soul who was loved by all. He is the one who nicknamed me Cookiesaurus. Please … Continue reading

On #GivingTuesday-Let’s Re-Think How We Give

So this weekend while listening to the TED Radio Hour on NPR (interested? there’s a podcast!), I heard portions of a TED talk by Dan Pallotta, who claims we hold our charities back with our expectations of low overhead. Pallotta’s argument is that while we reward start-ups for taking big risks with other people’s money, when … Continue reading

Thanks for Listening!

One of the things I am most grateful for is being heard.  Sad, isn’t it? In a world filled with noise, we don’t listen to each other. For me, I feel I am heard so infrequently that it actually shocks me when people get what I’m trying to say. For example, this month is employee … Continue reading

Accept What Is, and Live Anyway

. Women have very little idea of how much men hate them. Germaine Greer (The Female Eunuch) . One of the many hurts I’ve experienced since the presidential election is the sad reality that so many Americans hate competent women. Yes, hate. They don’t just dislike women.

Today the polar bear was gone. I knew eventually the museum would change the main installation, but still, to not see him there was shocking. But he has other eyes to open, so on he goes to his next stop on his journey while I continue mine. Yesterday I enjoyed a free lunchtime guided meditation at … Continue reading

It’s Election Day, So Go Vote!

It’s finally here and the stakes have never been higher. Are you an informed voter or pissed-off and taking a stand? Continue reading

Cats and Yoga: It’s a Thing!

I practice yoga, though I used to have a hard time admitting it. Yoga is marketed to upper middle class people who use yoga as a way to let the rest of us to know they’re better than we are because they are healthy and we are not. You know the ones; they wear specially designed yoga … Continue reading

I’d Give This a Title, But You Can’t See it Anyway

Friday morning in downtown Nashville, a woman got off the bus, walked in front of the bus to cross the street, and was hit by that same bus and drug “a short distance.” That short distance was a city block. According to the police and news media, the woman’s actions are to blame for the accident … Continue reading

Healing Energy Coming Right Up!

  A couple of days ago, two young women walked by me. They were chatting amiably and laughing, as good friends do. Suddenly I felt a rush of energy pass right through me. I smiled. It felt so good. In these days where there is such anger and animosity, it’s refreshing to see people who are happy. … Continue reading
