It's a late fall day, a cloudy Ohio day. My walk in the park for exercise turned into a wander. The mist began and a quiet settled in. My awareness of the birds was replaced by the company of squirrels. So many squirrels that I could hear the one up on haunches beside the trail … Continue reading I will walk far enough
I know it already. I've been taught it repeatedly. I've even told the fact to others, as though it is some wise maxim that I use to guide my life. But the truth is, while I know I must make exercise fun in order to do it, I usually just don't bother with the fun … Continue reading Exercise? I love it.
These are my notes from leading group meditation today. I realize that it might serve as a good reminder to those who attended or just a nice synopsis of Meditation 101 in my experience. Enjoy! It's fun to teach meditation in my own community. In years gone by, I used to teach at conferences or … Continue reading What are we doing here?
I am leading a group meditation monthly at 6th Street Yoga. My goal is to introduce people to a meditation practice that anyone can do and benefit from. We gather for an hour and part of that time we sit in silence. At the beginning of our time together, I try to offer some insights … Continue reading Getting past the brain?

It can be hard with the media bombarding you … Continue reading I’ve got better things to do…
A dream map is not a new concept. I'm not sure where I first learned of it. But I've done them since I was a teenager. They used to be pictures torn out of magazines and pasted together on a piece of cardboard. The idea is to give yourself a visual of where you want … Continue reading Dream on!
The election is over with some happy and some not. I was not happy and I was sadly surprised. But the US has a new president and that's how democracy works. I will continue to visualize the best for all of us in the future. The deeper lesson for me was "how did this happen?" … Continue reading A different point of view
I wonder if we're all tired of hearing about election opinions, insights, revelations and other assorted newsworthy items. I certainly am. I don't post about political news and my opinions because the political "conflict" seems to have brought about a new environment where if I say what you don't agree with, then I'm fair game … Continue reading I cling to hope
Thanks to Matt Moser for this beautiful shot of the gallery as we opened in 2013 I turned in my keys, watched the landlord lock the door and walked away from what used to be Journey Art Gallery. I'm so excited!!!! Many people have voiced their support and congratulations on a job well … Continue reading The next chapter
