America: A Land of Diversity

Last week, we just returned from a nine day motorcycle trip from Minnesota to Colorado. Leaving Minnesota, we entered the farmlands of Iowa that spread out before us for miles and miles. We then moved across Nebraska from cities into the vast prairie lands where towns were few and far between. As we entered Colorado,… Read More

The Spirit of ’76

Last evening, I had the honor of being a presenter at my 40th high school class reunion. The attendance was phenomenal for our small graduating class from 1976. The energy filled the event room as soon as people starting coming through the door as they recognized old friends and classmates. I joked during my presentation… Read More

Healing Ourselves Through Others

August has been a month of some incredible opportunities for me to witness the power of healing sad hearts and physical issues, by being in the company of other people who were willing to hold the space of love and comfort for others.

My Gratitude Cup Overflows

Death and the Workplace

  Last week, I opened my email box at work and saw an email from our new CEO. I was anticipating an announcement of some organizational changes because with new leadership, the CEO has tried to keep us well-informed on changes that he is taking action on.

The Summer Solstice…

This is the weekend of the Summer Solstice… the longest day of the year.  It also falls within the Gemini-Cancer Cusp of astrological theories, and this year, it is Father’s Day. I have so many thoughts rumbling around this brain of mine as I go into this weekend. As some of you know, I am in the… Read More

The “Space” Effect…

I have recently been reading the book Healing Spaces: The Science of Place and Well-Being by Esther M. Sternberg and learning about various studies on how our physical space can affect our ability to heal… both psychologically and physically.  Ms. Sternberg writes of a study done years ago in which post surgical patients were placed in either… Read More
