COVID-19 is causing havoc in human lungs and somehow I can’t help but feel that is what we have been doing to our environment for decades. Of course, we can’t possibly imagine what the river feels when it is dried or the bears feel when they are hungry or what the turtles and sea creatures feel when strangled in the garbage thrown by humans in the water that sustains them. I like to use the analogy that life is like a GPS and when we go off route, the GPS has a way of re-routing. We can take a longer or shorter time to get to our destinations with alternative views – but eventually we will get there. The truth of the matter is that all life is connected and when one part is off-balanced, we are sure to experience an imbalance in another part. Nothing in this life goes unnoticed and when we least expect it, the universe speaks and re-routes us.
I enjoy listening to children’s perspectives on life. Adults make lots of rules for kids but kids also have opinions on some of those rules – most times, they can’t express those opinions! I have raised three kids and taught elementary school kids and to be honest, for the most part, I simply applied the rules to keep order. Who wouldn’t when you are trying to manage your life, their lives and get things under control, including getting them to learn skills to be a successful adult? However, as an older adult now, I find myself intrigued by children’s views and perspectives (because I don’t have to manage them anymore!) but also, I have had many questioning moments about, “who is a successful adult, anyway?”
He lived with the regret of spending much of his hard earned money drinking and partying in his younger days. He felt that he should have been wiser and saved more money. One day, he threw the regret out of the window and re-framed the party going days as some of the best days of his life. He got pictures of his friends and wrote a letter to all of them to reconnect and laugh about the past. The rekindling of friendship has made him a happier person. He has given new value to his past.

Death. Do we choose it or does it choose us? Some say that we CANNOT die before our time but we don’t know when that time will be. My sister Anthia died when she was only 27. We can say that she was too young to…
Last weekend, Thanksgiving at my house was a “beautiful chaos”. We had 15 people for dinner – some people whom we planned to have over and some who came over in a spontaneous way. Now, I love entertaining and love having people over but…
“I can live my life now ‘in the bother of it’… I can live in the uncertainty of things and know that uncertainty is not a place of fear and it is o.k to take time to figure things out in that space of…
