Remission!

There’s apps, there’s how-to’s, there’s blog posts, there’s seminars, and there’s retreats. So what’s what? Similar to training, I want to lower the …

A while back I had the idea (forced on me) that in order to move on I had to think about the person I was as being dead. I could no longer be Person A. That person was in the past but was not who I was any more. I’m currently Person B and striving …

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry I keep coming back to this quote. As I struggle through life and find that more and more is requiring my attention, sometimes it takes stepping back and reassessing. I’m currently in …

Dishwashers and other modern conveniences.   It was believed that when vacuums, dishwashers, and microwaves became household items that they would magically help make chores simpler and end up saving time.  The problem was -and still is- that we can’t “save” time.  Instead of being able to bank it and put it away for a rainy …
