We live in a polar world right now, some call it duality. Things are seen as black and white, right or wrong, good or bad, and on and on. Duality often has us on one side and those we care about on the other. Because ego needs to be right, it is possible that … Continue reading Miss (or Mister) Misunderstood
From the heart
Retaining Integrity in a Political World
The world is spinning seemingly out of control, yet it remains on its axis. It seems to move faster and faster each day and yet it still takes 24 hours to do so. Happenings are reported momentarily assaulting the senses as they compound, continuously attacking our ability to remain calm as we assess and valuate … Continue reading Retaining Integrity in a Political World
An Observation on Political Correctness
Being politically correct is to be unoffensive to others, specifically regarding gender or race. Rather than it be a personal challenge for each to see their self in true form, whether it be living from the heart for all, or not, it has become a free license to judge and criticize others. Ironic isn't … Continue reading An Observation on Political Correctness

Integrity is a much … Continue reading Model What You Want Them To Be
What Were You THINKING!?!
Making wise choices comes about from experiences and practice as well as maturation. In any situation, children see what they are focusing on. It is only with growth and lessons learned that they begin to realize that there are consequences to every action. They are usually as surprised as anyone else when things don't go … Continue reading What Were You THINKING!?!
Miss Misunderstood- an unpublished new story
The day had seemed long when Gabby opened the back door to the kitchen. It wasn’t that she felt sad, more like empty. Unsure of why she felt this way, she knew she felt like she needed a hug, a tight one, one that said, “You are all right the way you are.” Mom was … Continue reading Miss Misunderstood- an unpublished new story
