Below is my Writer Wednesday submission on the topic of SNOW!
The Calm After the Snow
There can be good in a mighty snowfall -- the day after that is.
The night before is different. When the wind shakes your house as if it intends to let itself in to destroy your humble little abode… that brings no happiness.
And when the snow is hard and heavy and pelts your windows in loud, jarring succession as if threatening your…Continue

Blue Cross wants Blood and Sweat.
Last August, Blue Cross sent me an email that I could have 15% off on my insurance for the year if I got a bunch of blood tests by the end of the month. I hate being popped. I hate discussing my results with a doctor who is out-of-date on the latest research and insists that high cholesterol is dangerous for women. The latest research shows that high cholesterol is protective for…Continue
Apparently, the Winter God has decided to give a big snow fest fall to parts of New York State.
Lake Effect apparently is the name of said God.
Apparently, that God needs to take a break from his job; he has done well. Parts of the state got one year of snowfall in one day.
I've been through some snow fall in my life. Nothing even close to seven feet of snow but when I was living in Indiana, one year, we received 3 feet of…Continue

I attended a Mindfulness Workshop at which the leaders read some of their favorite poems. Two lines have stuck with me:
For us to know peace, is it necessary that there be no war anywhere in the world?…

Serenading the beasts
I saw a quote from the new book, “The afterlife of Billy Fingers” which said, “Imagine yourself with no limitations only potential”. I thought about this and I think there have been only a handful of people who we can say accomplished this. Imagine if everyone was able to live that way. Imagine if we all had no limitations, only potential..I can't decide if it would be a good thing or bad thing. Imagine if you will that everything that…Continue

I’ve been stressing out lately, playing scary scenarios in my head, rehashing conversations that went badly, even my dog quickly bored of playing with me.
I decided to take the Mindfulness class offered at a nearby hospital. Jon Kabat-Zinn has a good reputation, as a man who was trained as a Buddhist meditator who figured out how to teach meditation without the Buddhism.…Continue

So you’ve taken a yoga class... that doesn’t mean you know how to teach yoga.
I’m taking Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. In the first few weeks we were taught how to do a body scan and how to do breath-based meditation. I’ve meditated for over 20 years. These instructions were valid and…Continue

As my mother grows older she has let her hair grow out and long for a couple
reasons; mostly because she can't get to the salon as much.
My mother will be eighty this summer.
My mother looks like me with her long white hair and no facial hair. It's her karma working. She always told me I was ugly.
Now this thinking gives way to two possibilities, my mother was just cruel or I am truly ugly. In any case mom is paying the price for her…Continue

My neighbor has Comcast for internet, TV and telephone. I always advise my clients to have telephone separate from their internet, so that when one is down, they can use the other to get help. Most of my clients don’t listen to my advice. They just call me when things go wrong.
It was a dark and stormy night (I kid you not) when my neighbor with the Comcast Trifecta called from another neighbor’s. He lives about 5…Continue

I sat in my doorway, Room B 33 for the last time looking up one hall and down the same hall watching the world unfold for another fun filled day at Heartland of Victorian Village.
You find out very quickly that just because you, me in this case is being discharged today doesn't mean that anything special will happen. The world just continues right on it's way, on it's own.
Movement continues, speech continues, joys and sadness continue just as…Continue

My houseguest and I were hanging up our laundry on the line. I hung up my socks by one side of the cuff. She hung hers up by the toe.
I remembered that my mother used to hang her socks up by the toe. It…Continue
