365 Reflections - Reflection 2

I am sure at times others wonder what keeps us creative folks from just doing our thing. "C'mon Lisa, how hard is it to just write?"  I've only committed to once a day and only ten minutes at that. Well dear reader, there are obstacles  - big and small. This morning for instance, I was settled in at my desk with hot tea and toast and I had to install updates before my computer allowed the free form of thoughts. I could not postpone the updates anymore and rather than being afraid of a forced shut down while I am reflecting, I took the time to restart....more

This House is Clean

The other day I did a cleansing in our home — I lit a white sage smudge stick and went through every room in the house, smoking away any bad vibes and clearing the air for good times and feelings. At the end of the ritual I put cups of sea salt in the four corners....more

Game Theory

Want to play a game? Sure you do! We like games, don’t we? First, we need to decide what kind of games we like or otherwise it won’t be much fun.Me, I’ve never been a fan of “Risk.” I can see very plainly that others enjoy this game very much (Putin comes to mind) and it’s still on the shelves so somebody is buying it.

The Top Ten Things I've Learned at 50

 Even though my three daughters refuse to acknowledge my impending half-century celebration, I am proud to say that I will be 50 years old on Sunday. Apparently to the teenage set, having a mom who is 50 is a stain on their social status. Whatever... I am healthy, I am grounded and I am fairly well preserved; therefore, I am grateful....more

Breaking The Cycle of Stuff

When I was young, we spent our Sunday afternoons shopping. We would buy tops, rugs, slipper socks, mixed nuts -- anything that tickled our fancy.
