Overnight shipping from Amazon. Panicked, last minute phone calls to florists. Saturday night drug store runs to track down the last Mother's Day card. Just this once, forget about all that. This Mother's Day, do something different. Do something radical. Do something, dare I say, sacrilegious: Don't buy your mother a gift.

I've never really been a writer and at this stage I still wouldn't say that I am a writer, but since starting my personal blog, I've really enjoyed writing and sharing my experiences and journey from my eyes and in my words.

Doctors experience the world a bit differently. But, I think it's a fair trade for eating power bars in the break room during our lunch hour.

So, if our relationship between possessions and happiness is so tenuous, why do we still give it so much worth? Why are our physical possessions still tied to success and, in some cases, how we define ourselves? Perhaps it's time we redefine what we measure and how.

And if I was planning an exotic trip, the expectation of a great time in a foreign country would probably distract me from realizing that I could be spending every day in that state of happiness while at home. Life is a funny thing. You usually keep looking far away for things that you could have right next to you.

We need to place more value on experiences than on things. At the end of our lives, we treasure our memories more than our things.

Dr. Toy Talks About Play and Toys

Stevanne Auerbach

After many years studying and selecting toys of all kind I strongly believe the toys a child plays with can help to unlock the door to learning. Each new play experience helps to turn the key and unlock doors to experiences that influence mental, social and other aspects of the child's fullest development.

Life Is 'Brutiful'

As awful as the bombings, shootings, and manhunt were (and still are), there was (and still is) so much bravery, beauty, connection, and love that has come out of everything that has happened; which is often the case when something horrible like this occurs.

My earliest memories of Singapore date back to the early '90s when I took my first trip there with my parents. I still have the (scary) memory of the cab driver warning us about littering or jaywalking.

"Can I help you find anything?" he asks. "How 'bout the meaning of life?" I reply. Without hesitation, he tells me, "That's two aisles over, middle shelf, in a small can!"

I thought I'd cured myself of my chronic "foot-in-mouth-itis" -- that is, saying things to people based on assumption, being totally wrong, then feeling like a jerk. But alas, it lingers.

Luminous Commute: Miami Beach, September 2007

Robert G. Zuckerman | Posted 06.03.2013 | Healthy Living
Robert G. Zuckerman

Driving, I'm like a bow being pulled across the strings. Now, I am in the rondo, the third movement, where things that used to matter don't and things that never mattered do; where the mundane appears vivid and even the simplest, most ordinary routines become holy.

I reach out to shake his hand, and he grips my forearm as I grip his. I go to my car and find a dollar in the tray, which I give to Ra, though never did he ask for it. As I drive out I see him mounting his bicycle, ready to ride on now that I'm safe.

Will you raise your voice and sing or will you look the other way? All around us, beauty and pain are exploding into being. The song of humanity is bursting into life, tension and resolution, full of dissonance and harmony.

Acceleration, Re-Entry and the Ever-Rising Bar

With greater frequency I've recently wondered why I'm being shown the splendor and richness of the world that I've been fortunate enough to experience and can only conclude there must be a greater purpose -- a grander design to it -- than my own personal fulfillment.
