TOGETHER is better to EMPOWE/CONNECT/SHARE. I am always delighted by surprises, and this book by Simon Sinek was a surprise. On a recent trip to the Oberlin Public Library, there it was! And I just have to share some thoughts that have come to mind as I prepare for the rollout of my vision of […]

Are You in a Community?

In our very busy world today, finding time to build a community is sometimes hard, isn’t it? The view a few days ago of this fire circle and Adirondack chairs at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park on the grounds of the Hines Hill Conference Center was very beckoning! The lush grounds under the beautiful almost-Fall […]

Wisdom Across the Ages…AWW!

The wiser I acknowledge myself to be, the shorter my blogs are becoming. A recent post on social media acknowledged that the power you have, and you have lots of power–grace, brain, education, culture, love, and more, the more you have a responsibility to use that power to EMPOWER others. The short and simple is […]

Leadership in the Universe AWW Style…

Yep, you read that right. AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM is emerging as AGELESS WOMEN EMERGING from the cocoon. Slowly, so very slowly. Change is hard. And there is no rush. We have no knowledge that I know of how caterpillars are feeling when they begin to feel different. They may like being caterpillars, they may […]

A very important consideration is that the location be accessible […]

My presentation was about Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother’s chant of “Bibbidy Bobbidy Boo”. It was a fun presentation that would make a great series of fairy tales and money, but we have moved on […]

Awe, Isn’t This Selfish?

Growing up Catholic, we were taught to be kind and not to be selfish, and we all did as much of what we could to follow the rule of “what would Jesus do”? And then we grew up, we understood what we were taught, and we felt guilty when we began to take care of […]

Make the Dream You Envision REAL!

Life is many moments in which you can choose to dream and talk about your dream. When you envision it, you make it possible. But to make it real, you have to schedule it. Please do not stop reading because you believe this is going to turn into a lecture or a seminar or worse. […]

Set Yourself Free…

Today’s blog is plain and simple: only you can set yourself free from any cage in any part of your life! In the last few days, the political climate following the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton has turned ugly and sickening. And it affects all of us. Yes, I have a circle and […]

Many Things are “AGELESS”!

Including a wonderful woman named Mary Faktor…and Mary Faktor among many achievements produced THE SIX AGES OF WOMAN. When “Ageless Women of Wisdom” manifested itself in the Fall of 2018, I called my friend Mary Faktor, and the end result many months later is that THE SIX AGES OF WOMAN is an important part of […]
