Footprints in the Sands of Carbon

This month, June, is kinda fun for me. Lots of reasons why. Let me share just one. Carbon Measuring. A few months ago, one of my podcast listeners reached out and told me about a radio show and suggested I listen to it. Not only did I listen to it, I then reached out and

Ten Thousand Hours and a Bit More

Ten thousand hours?  Say what? Last Saturday, I walked to the funeral home to settle my brother’s affairs. I ended up speaking to one of the senior funeral directors for a spell.

Observations of an Executrix

My eldest brother passed away a few weeks ago. He joins my two other brothers and parents and leaves me as ‘the last one standing.’ (Which is an experience I never expected.) I am his Executrix, and I’d like to share some of the lessons and awakenings I have now seen play out several times. Even

Some Stuff about Stress

Stress — the second part of a promised two-part piece. Last week we talked about autoimmune diseases and gluten-free diets. The other day, I stumbled across a peer-reviewed medical study from 2008.

Travel: A River, a Wine and a Natural Occurrence

Have you noticed how so many of us are travelling now that the restrictions have been lifted? To be fair, I haven’t heard one person say that that travel part – the airplane part — is fabulous. Always, the best parts are getting away, taking in new sites and then experiencing the new parts. Long

Sitting and thinking about all the different things to write for your Sunday morning read is such a gift. And it is a delight to carve out something that might cause you to pause. This week, someone paused ME. They asked me to tell them concretely what it means to change your thinking. For the
