"Danger--if you meet it promptly and without flinching--you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!"     
-Winston Churchill


I watched a movie the other night on Netflix called, "Carriers" that came out in 2015. It was about a flesh eating bacteria that was contagious. I was so surpri...

And the people healed
And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

I remember exactly where I was when I knew life as I had known it had ended.

I was with my hairstylist getting my hair done three weeks ago. We were discussing possible vacations we were going to go on in the summer. She was talking about Ibiza, Spain and how beautiful it was.  I...

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul,

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little bird

Are we...

Where were you when you heard about the sudden death of famed, retired basketball star Kobe Bryant? I was driving with my daughter on the way to Disneyland. It was a foggy morning and we were just talking about how weird the sky looked. I was recounting how I had to use navigation the night before to help guide me through t...

“Puerto Rico’s National treasure Punta Ventana destroyed by 6.4 magnitude earthquake. People sleeping on the streets afraid of their homes falling on them. Two thirds of Puerto Rico without power.”

These headlines blaze the internet and I feel powerless. Powerless over Mother Nature, powerless over the human condition, powe...
