Romance is Good for the Heart

Late for a meeting, mounds of traffic and I’m Zen as a Tibetan Monk.  Butterflies which usually fly in formation in my tummy area have gone rogue.  It’s the mutiny of butterflies and coherent thought.  Yesterday seemed like a distant memory with computer problems, rude drivers and lost reservations.  Today is heaven on earth, I … Continue reading »

Sand In Your Shorts

If you’ve ever had sand in your shorts you know how irritating it can be.  Probably where its name sake drink originated.  You need a Sand in Your Shorts when you have “sand in your shorts”.  The first thing I want to do is get the sand out of my shorts.   Kelly Clarkson’s song “What … Continue reading »

Backwards Thinkin’

My auto pilot navigation system has been engineered by deeper beliefs lurking just below the surface.  It has been programmed to Loch Ness monster any “new” idea before it has time to scream.  Of course relying on inner guidance is the first course of action but this can be a tricky as well. Navigating through … Continue reading »

Love University

Driving home after spin, I pondered the question, what if there were a Love University. Graduates achieve a master’s degree in Love.  What would the course curriculum be?  Tolerance, Forgiveness, Charity, Kindness, Praise? Before leaving the gym today, I asked my spin instructor for a copy of today’s play list.  This simple request turned into … Continue reading »

Imagine You Had Three Wishes

This morning I found a cup resembling a magic lamp way in the back corner of the cupboard.  It’s been there for ages and only revealed itself recently since its companion cups had found their way to the yard sale/thrift store.  It’s incredible what we uncover/unearth when we clean out a cupboard, a closet or … Continue reading »

Embrace Selfish

I feel selfish and self-centered today and I embrace the urge in all its glory.  I could have fallen victim to the dreaded pour me, pour me, pour me another drink syndrome, recognizing that mundane life has taken charge and I have let it.  Time to get selfish. Selfish is such an interesting concept.   I … Continue reading »

The Law of Circulation

Spinning my little feet as fast as they will go, the spin instructor barks “turn it up another notch”.  Salty sweat dripping into my eyes, the epiphany is clear.   I hear, one two, one two, legs spiral their circular motion.  It is not the law of attraction it is the law of circulation. No mystery … Continue reading »

Magic

“Magic, Magic, Magic Magic, Magic, Magic I got the Magic in me!” – B.O.B.     Thursday night adorned with crowds dressed in black.  Something about black screams festive and fancy.  Last time I saw crowds like this out on a Thursday night it was after the great Southern California wind storm of 2011.  That … Continue reading »
