As those of us in the Northern hemisphere settle into the autumn, I'm mindful of persistent advice from business gurus telling me that I should be practicing mindfulness, but I'm even more mindful that mindfulness has become one of the most overused, watered-down tropes of the year.

I attended the pilot retreat, along with eight other women in Boonville, Calif. One could describe the retreat with words like connection, reflection, sun-brushed hillsides and fireside conversations... But I would just use the word magic.

Reflect back to the last 10 years of your life and write down all that has happened during each of those years; review what you have written and come up with a theme for those experiences. Okay, you don't HAVE to come up with themes, but I think it's a fun experiment.

Timothy Merrill | Posted 08.07.2015 | Religion
Timothy Merrill

Of all literary genres, the diary is the least read and most uninteresting, with possible exception of Wilde or Anais Nin. A nutrition label on a loaf of pumpernickel is more exciting. So if no one is going to read your diary -- and really, you don't want them to -- then, why write at all?
