When I was a kid, I loved to go to amusement parks and ride the rides, especially the Tilt-A-Whirl. I loved the sensation of going up and down and around and around in random and unexpected ways. I would get very dizzy and laugh hysterically at the sensation, even...read more
A call for less doing and improving and for more being and accepting. One of the big differences between US culture and cultures around the world (especially Mediterranean and Latin cultures) is that we are focused on DOING lots of things. We are so busy doing, doing,...read more
Our culture in the US is … tough right now. We are more competitive and combative with each other than ever and the space for common ground seems to have evaporated. I am not just talking about politics. I am talking about work, kindness, economic realities,...read more
I’m thinking about health a lot these days as I’ve had to deal with some issues. They’re not serious, but there’s nothing like a health problem to make you sit back, reflect, and realize your limits (especially when we don’t really like to admit that we have limits!)....read more
