“Om Shanti Om”versus “I am Stressed!”

Deepak Chopra is a fantastic source for mantras including “Om Shanti Om”, “I am Peace”, which in fact was a favorite of a friend from long ago, Roberta.  Before you can find peace, you must find quiet, you must find alertness, and you must find awareness.  All of these findings are also a way to […]

Because I am Happy!

The temperature is in the 70’s this morning, down 20 degrees from 12 hours ago…that makes me happy as the windows are wide open and the after-the-rain scent fills the House! I am on Day 1 of 6 weeks on Phase 2 of THE PLANT PARADOX, and I am happy with my avocado-romaine-spinach-mint-lemon smoothie! I […]

Money, Health, and Life…Longevity!

For me, it is natural, as it is for many, that we keep looking for improvement in our abundant life including health and money.  If we take care of our health, and it may be expensive at times, then it may be less expensive as we continue to age.  But taking care of us is […]

Getting Ready for the Flow…

While Spring has finally arrived in Northeast Ohio, Lake Erie is so ready for Summer!  Summer brings FLOW to our minds, our hearts, and our souls as well as our bodies!  Walking the beach at Lakeview Park today was a thrill, and I even found some small pieces of beach glass.  I had never been […]

Getting Healthier & Wealthier Every Day!

Being Thankful for the Enlightenment…

Thanksgiving was a great day for family, friends, and the local police department in Oberlin.  Thanksgiving evening the upper respiratory experience returned after abating for a few days.  The cough syrup experience resulted in being escorted the last several blocks home from Beachwood by the Oberlin Police Department.  It will take an act of God for me […]

SOIL…

“I’m sad as hell and I’ not going to fake it anymore”  These are the first words of a new book by Woody Tasch.  It was his first book SLOW MONEY…that led to my total involvement in the local, healthy, organic, sustainable food movement.  His new book SOIL/2017:  NOTES TOWARDS THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF […]

Labor Day, 2017, and I Lovingly Labor!

Yes, this is Labor Day.  It used to be as a single parent, that this was the Last Hurrah Day of Summer with two little boys off to the YMCA Perry Recreation Center in Lake County, Ohio, where we had a total membership being one of the most economical ways to entertain the boys throughout […]

Bet You Didn’t Know This About Your Cereal!

I have said it before, and I will say it again, I love the book GROCERY.  It is so full of information for those of us who are trying to improve our health and that of others. On page 94 of the book, I just have to share this, “Battle Creek is the birthplace of […]
