Einstein

Einstein thought about more than E=MC2.  He’s a lot more than the theory of relativity and the butt of may jokes.  He’s more than an image on a T-shirt.  Here’s a guy in white western society, in the scientific community, a genius figuring out the structure of the Universe, and he comes up with what…

What makes you truly happy?

What is it in this world that makes you smile and you don’t even know you’re doing it?  That keeps that smile on your face long after you’ve gone on to the next thing for that day?  That just makes your day better?  Is it hiking, spending time with your sweetheart, quiet time with the…

A little digression

Ok, going off subject for just a moment, I love Shakespeare in the park.  It’s a delight of summer like ice-cold beer and baseball and hand-made ice cream and hotdogs on the grill.  Acting groups everywhere are setting up in parks with makeshift costumes to play out the comedies of Shakespeare.  Who wants to watch…

People are so Amazing

I don’t think people realize how amazing they are.  When I read for a client the first thing I do is look at who they are within their body.  I’m always awestruck by how beautiful they are and how unique.  Because I’m like every other human and like order I can place them in broad…

So what do I do?

Common enough question.  What do I do?  And my answer is usually, “What do you want to do?”.  Which is not what people want to hear.  People asking that question want someone else to be in charge.  They want someone else to be responsible.  Usually they are in some kind of emotional crisis.  And this…

Seeing the patterns

We have amazingly analytical brains.  We’re constantly looking, in taking information, then making patterns out of it.  Especially other people’s behavior.  We can fairly easily see an acquaintance pick the wrong type of man over and over, the boss making the worst decision for the department, again, or actor in the horror flick reaching for…

People’s Expectations

Human beings are amazing at information gathering and analysis.  You do it every day.  You look at something in your house and you categorize the shapes and colors into types of furniture, decorations, useful tools, things to enjoy, things to use, things to do, what affects you and what you effect in the now and…

There’s a mystery unfolding inside you

Believe it or not, you are a mystery written by yourself unfolding before you each and every day. You are even more mysterious to those around you because they only see parts of the mystery. They don’t know motivations, or lack thereof, and they don’t understand the full picture the way you live it.  For…

Trust Issues

Trust is a small word for a huge concept.  For some it is something given automatically and then either flourishes or dies a slow death from abuse.  For others it’s something that is earned through good intentions followed by good actions repeated over time.  It something that some people never offer or feel having had…

What if my GPS says “recalculating”

Being human means making mistakes. If you are making them then you’re not alive.  That’s just the deal. You’d think that making them, possibly daily, we’d get used to it, stop being worried about it, or even become ok with it, but not so much. We can’t avoid it and really we don’t learn and…
