Week-end Planning

Everyone likes a great gig. What are you planning to do this week-end that will be fun and memorable. Find some inspiration, music and get in touch with some fun folks. Take photos as proof.

What Is Your Gift?

“Be a good steward of your gifts, ” the poet Jane Kenyon urged.
Days can get away from us and we fail to do the one thing that is most important.
This is a wasted day. We really have no time to waste.

You’re Judged By What You Do Best

“Do what only you can do”. This is such a simple idea, yet it often eludes us when we see what others are engaged in. Try to back up, gain perspective and purposely move forward with a clarified goal.
(painter is Jesi Pace-Berkeley)

World Class Things

“Only through focus can you do world class things, no matter how capable you are.” Bill Gates
This is a daily inspiration to me. Is there anyone who doesn’t lose focus?IMG_4140

Special Times

“This time, like all other times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.” Ralph Waldo EmersonIMG_9040

Beauty, Plain and Simple

Conversational Finesse

Even with the best of conversational intentions, you can feel the misstep. The trust is tenuous, but growing, and then it happens. Too much is asked and the conversation narrows.
“Note to world: curiosity killed the chat.” Philip Galanes

Life Requires a Great Deal of Sorting

“We are largely the people we expect to be, because that identity shapes the way we sort through the thousand life choices with which we are confronted daily.” Judith Sills, PH.D.
Sure makes one think, this one.

Energy Walking

My one word resolution this year is “energy”. I look for it in conversations, restaurants, people and scenes on the street.
These walkers on a day in late October embody this theme to a tee.

Can’t We Just Remember To Enjoy Mealtime?

“First we eat, then we do everything else.” M.F.K. Fisher
We can do it. Mealtime can return to delicious family time together. Someone in the group has to take a stand and wrestle mealtime back into a pleasurable activity. The children are watching to see how it’s done.
