Anger

Anger in our culture is such a divisive emotion.  Besides the fact that it is over used and abused in the media because of the drama factor, people have such striking opinions about it.  Some feel that it should only be displayed in private, behind closed doors and only to the person or persons involved with it. …Details

One thing to change

What is the one thing you are going to change today? Our being in the Universe requires that we move and do because we need to eat and eliminate and breath.  We are home to millions of organism that live with us symbiotically on, around and in our bodies. …Details

What if?

What if things had been different?  There is a great segway in the movie Under the Tuscan Sun where the main character says “Any little change along the way and I would be somewhere else.  I would be different.” The camera pans across her writing desk which holds mementos from her life’s journey from misery and divorce to family and happiness. …Details
