2015-07-16-1437083010-8417507-musician664432_1280.jpgPeople love talking about having fun. Listening to them, I've often wondered if maybe I was missing something. When asked what I do for fun, I've been reluctant to answer. I've learned by the look on people's faces it might not...

2015-06-13-1434234923-4993081-brain294x300.jpgNot long ago I officially confirmed that I am in my right mind. Allow me to explain. For most of my life, I've been called a left brain dominant person and told I would be well served to get out of my...

2015-04-19-1429480082-5151607-angelclouds.JPGAs I was walking this morning, eyes to the sky watching the wonderful and expansive clouds drifting by, I was struck by how incredibly beautiful each of the wide variety of cloud formations was. The big, voluptuous cumulus clouds...

At sometime in our lives, many of us have probably stopped to imagine what it would be like to live with unlimited fortune and much-deserved fame. Well, at least I did when I was young. If you had asked...

What Would You Like To See Women Recognized For?

(32) Comments | Posted February 26, 2015 | 9:58 AM

As a writer, I rarely know exactly where my next article will come from. Writing primarily when inspired to, new pieces are a culmination of things I see, read or that show up for me in often most unexpected ways.

My latest inspiration happened on one of my last days...

Real Beauty Comes From the Inside Out

(50) Comments | Posted January 20, 2015 | 8:27 AM

While flipping through a magazine not too long ago, a quote caught my eye. I cut it out and taped it to the piano in my family room. "Pretty isn't a look, it's a feeling." As a member of the well-populated boomer generation, aging and beauty is a big conversation...

2014-11-02-IMG_1723.jpgNot too long ago after a casual lunch with my mother and daughter, I posted a picture we took of my mother onto Facebook. The headline read: "This is What 98 Looks Like in My Family!" The response was overwhelming, producing the...

Kafka & Langer: An Unusually Complex Friendship

(18) Comments | Posted September 8, 2014 | 11:58 AM

All any of us wants is to be seen and to be heard. This longing is at the core of our human beingness. Most never get the opportunity to share their life story in a way that impacts many. Why some people become famous and others, equally as gifted, remain...

Music, Memories and Healing: My Love of James Taylor

(4) Comments | Posted August 10, 2014 | 11:42 PM

Interesting when something is so close to our heart, yet we rarely talk about it. Music is that thing for me.

It wasn't the first time I've seen James Taylor. In fact this could have been the 10th or 11th or the 20th. I've lost track. I do...

For the last two years in early July, you'd find me joining committed fellow change makers, in the vibrant west coast city of Portland, for the annual World Domination Summit, the brainchild of world traveler and confirmed non-conformist Chris Guillebeau.

This year I chose not to...

Not a Cat Person

(22) Comments | Posted May 12, 2014 | 4:37 PM

When my brother Niel and I were young, we begged our parents for a dog. After finally wearing them down, they said "yes" and my lifelong love affair with dogs began. My experience is that dogs are great givers of unconditional love. However, had you asked me about cats, I...

Mother's love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved ~ Robert Browning

Mother. Just saying the word brings up a multilayered spectrum of reactions I know, depending on our own personal experiences with our mothers. Like it or not, without our mothers, we wouldn't be...

Are You Taking Advantage of the Clouds In Your Life?

(12) Comments | Posted April 23, 2014 | 11:42 AM

When you hear the word "cloud", what's the first thing that comes to your mind? In our technology driven world, I imagine that many immediately think of "cloud" in relation to the internet; a generally used term for anything that involves delivering hosted services there. Hmm. The word "cloud" conjures...

Can a Book Have a Bucket List? This One Does

(4) Comments | Posted February 22, 2014 | 5:26 PM

It's probably not too far a stretch to say that most of us are familiar with the concept of a bucket list. Places we long to visit, dreams yet to come true, people we'd love to meet and experiences we want to live, all before we kick the proverbial "bucket"....

Memories, Nostalgia and a Loss of Innocence

(0) Comments | Posted November 23, 2013 | 4:27 PM

Fall is a tough time of year for me. It's a hard thing to admit, as so many people love the autumn change of season. For me, the loss of colour and beauty, as the trees shed their leaves, coupled with the darkness of shorter days, has always been personally...

Sometimes something is so close to you, you're unable to see it objectively. While preparing to launch my book Confessions of a Middle-Aged Hippie, I'm grateful to have had an opportunity to re-examine my personal biography, and revisit some of those significant pieces that have contributed to who...

Return to The "Summer of Love" World Domination Summit Style

(2) Comments | Posted July 29, 2013 | 3:20 PM

It's taken me a few weeks to digest a question I've been living with: "What just happened?" It was a two-and-a-half day whirlwind of positive energy and happiness sprinkling of love, peace and community. An outstanding example of how 2,800 people can come together in sincerely supportive community....

Redefining Beauty and Brains as a Middle-Aged Hippie

(5) Comments | Posted May 2, 2013 | 3:26 PM

When I was much younger people saw me as being so beautiful or sosmart. Some who knew me very well, actually saw both. I strove at all costs to have my intellect be recognized as my principle asset and, heaven forbid, someone would relate to me as just "another pretty...
