The Cancer Scare “Dear, You Have Two Densities”

DEAR, YOU HAVE TWO DENSITIES. Entry in my journal. October 26, 2009– Breast Clinic Office. Moving a pile of “scrumpled” newspaper sections I take a seat. I pull out my pen and journal before I scrutinize the room. One bored-looking gentleman dressed in khaki pants, chambric shirt and Sperry Topsiders. An older woman two seats over minding a toddler. A restless, wiry Hispanic man of indeterminable age who is cleaning his fingernails with a small slim penknife. A few seats away from me a middle-aged woman stuck to the edge of the waiting room chair like dried food on a greasy plate. Fatigued skin on her face, neck and arms hangs…

AREN’T YOU CURIOUS WHERE SCIENCE SAYS YOU WILL MOST LIKELY PEAK?

Here Are The Ages You Peak at Everything Throughout Life PS-This makes old age sound awesome! Ageing can seem like a scary prospect, but a wealth of scientific studies have found that youth isn't all it's cracked up to be. There are plenty of cases in which human beings peak well into middle and old age. Teenagers, for instance, may have vitality on their side, but older people are generally more psychologically stable. And so it goes with several phenomena people experience as they age. CHRIS WELLER & SKYE GOULD, BUSINESS INSIDER Many of the points mark the middle of an age range that scientists have identified, which means they are…

YOU DON’T LONG TO LIVE A MORE CREATIVE LIFE? REALLY?

What if you don't feel all that creative? Well, what do you believe you need in order to live a satisfying life?

EVER WISH THE WORLD COULD BE DIFFERENT AFTER THE WEEKEND?

What could be different this Holiday Weekend? Your weekend-story could be life-changing for SOMEONE! Write a personal narrative or a memoir and the world is changed forever, because of YOU! You already have all it takes to make a difference to someone, somewhere and your story could be the beginning of anything from a humorous perspective, to valuable life-lessons, to creating a new world! Don't be scared. If you have never written anything before, just think of writing as talking on paper. The number one mistake I see writers making is they try and get too fancy. Just tell your story. Period. "Writing is not my gift, why would I write a memoir?"…

HOW CAN I WRITE WITH NO TIME TO SPARE?

The #1 complaint/question I get from most women: How am I to write anything when I have no time to spare? I’m glad I finally heard your question! Today I share some habits that will literally create time for your writing. While still working full time as a teacher I completed an entire ghost-write for a publisher in under six months of writing! Of course, before I began, I was sure I had neither the time nor the bandwidth to accomplish my goal. I was working full time at a job that didn't give me time to write or spend time doing research. I was attending school for a what amounted to…

FORGIVE YOURSELF, NOW WHAT DO YOU WANT TO CREATE?

The question of what I wanted to create was an irritation. I nearly brushed it aside because it seemed so selfish. What? Thinking again in that same instant it was decided. I would write a poem each day for 500 days! The poem-a-day process would spawn a book and it produced some surprising results, as well. In the beginning, I was excited about this “new thing," so I found it quite easy to rise before dawn, sip some fresh water and tune in to what the world needed from me that day. Some days, a bit of "far-seeing" was required to find the place the world could pivot. A couple of…

MY GIFT TO YOU- A BLESSING FOR WELLBEING!

For some time now I have been contemplating a gift for you. From my collection of modes and means of Wellbeing that are free, easy, and effective I settled on this gem. I couldn't think of a better gift for you this Winter Season than Wellbeing.

May this Ceremony create a present and mindful day and pathway. To begin, write down all that causes…

ONE SIMPLE WAY TO FEEL BETTER TODAY- plus Holistic Writing Prompt 002

You have been on my mind, insistantly! At the outset of my work with a client over several months, I assured her I would not flood her email box with self-serving drivel. I would only share an email when there was something significant. Let me offer you, the reader of this email or my blog that same assurance. I have noticed that when one person finds something meaningful, others are calling out for that same healing, consciously or unconsciously. In that spirit, I offer this simple way to feel better today! SIGNIFICANT ONCE and AGAIN- Many of us don’t believe we deserve good things (whatever is on your conscious or unconscious list). I want…
