Have you touched the rim of the future lately?

Recently, I was talking to my brother, and we talked about how folks have been stating that 2020 has been an awful year and that they can’t wait until it’s over.   Remember this year started with the Australian wildfires which were devastating.

It’s Time to Unlearn Our Sh*tty Ways

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with my brother. And I totally mispronounced, ‘pneumonia.’ He said, “Huh, what are you saying? Oh, you mean nuh·mow·nyuh.”   This whole time, my brain had always seen a ph in front so added an h sound.   Initially, I felt my ears get warm from…

How a Country Music Star Changed my Perspective

I’m originally from Nashville, the home of country music. Years ago, I was eating dinner with my family at our favorite Mexican place, La Paz. A tall woman walked in with a few folks, wearing a black trench coat and sunglasses. It was summer and night time.   If her intention was to blend in,…

I’d sleep on the speaker part at the back of the…

Don’t Send that Letter!

Indulge me in a little trip down memory lane. “Please don’t send that letter! You’ll get in trouble.” “She hurt my family, and I want her to know that I won’t ever accept her.” This exchange happened when I was trying to convince my friend, Diane (not her real name), not to send a letter…

A Month Without the Internet

We are now seven weeks into the new year. How is your year going so far? Did you start your year off with new year’s resolutions or as I like to call them, practices?   I made a declaration on January 1st after a particularly indulgent holiday season. 🙂 Ok, time to get back to…

Why Do I Meditate?

Breathe

It helps me get to center faster. That sounds very esoteric so let me explain.   A few years ago, after reading many articles of the benefits of meditation, I decided to truly give it a chance of making it a daily habit, instead of sporadic here and there sits. I calendared out 40 days…
