WAKING UP

Waking up this morning to yesterday’s election results shows what we all know, that this is a country that continues to be polarized, divided and fractured.  Put in context, this is a reinforcement to what happened in 2016 and thereafter for the past five years and honestly, much longer than that. The political divisions are

ANOTHER ROAD TRIP

This trip has become a familiar one for me for the past 25 years.  Regardless where we were living – NM in Santa Fe & Abiquiu, London, California, and now Arizona, the trek to Oklahoma City has been occasioned by family members living there, some originating there, some returning there and now dying there.  S.

ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS

BEING AND BECOMING

What did 70 years of learning help me “to understand and to appreciate, to celebrate and enjoy and to use most readily in my life and in my work? I learned that most of all, life is about who I am, not simply what I do. I learned that there is an important distinction between

OPTION TO FLIGHT OR FIGHT

Years ago I developed a little scheme for helping people to deal with that I called, reactive emotions that usually got them nowhere, except mired in their own misery.  I offered another option. Imagine someone making a snide remark or remember the last time someone said something to you that prompted an immediate, spontaneous “fight
