Leo Moon - Sequins, Glitter, Fun!

Starting Friday afternoon, August 22, 2014, thru the weekend we can sparkle along with a lively Leo Moon. The 5th sign of the zodiac is a Sun ruled Fire sign, so there will be warmth, creativity, energy and perhaps some prideful “look at me“ antics. You may be overcome with a craving for theatrics, attention and melodrama – just remember that it’s not all about you. (At least share some of the light.) But, do be out there, spread sequined goodness, have some romantic fun times and enjoy.Have a fab weekend! ...more

'The Giver': A Gift to the Reader (and hopefully the movie goer as well!)

A little like the cover of the book displayed here, 'The Giver' is a muted yet deeply powerful book.A small story, with a big message for society, and our constant drive towards 'sameness' and conformity....more

Lessons from the Ice Bucket Challenge

Life lessons can be found in the weirdest of activities. This is the case of the ice bucket challenge that has gone viral this summer. For those of you still in the dark, the challenge requires the nominated participants to pour a bucket of ice or oce water on their head within a 24 hours period after the nomination. If not accepted, then the nominee pledges to make a donation of 100.00 to a charity. Pretty cold, I mean, cool, right? ...more

What I Read on Vacation

As much as I love reading, it can be difficult to do all that much of it very often.  Generally, vacation is prime time for me to check off a few of the books on my list, and this year was no exception....more

Why are most famous female singers proud to be naked?

A few weeks ago the British singer, Lily Allen uploaded a picture from her US tour to her Instagram account. Not such an exciting thing to report about, but the thing is that the picture she uploaded was of her singing on stage while her right boob was picking from her outfit. The title she gave to the picture was “Whoops” and it got more than 45,000 likes, not talking about the entire media buzz it made. ...more

“I’m too old for this $#!^”

It was the day after the super moon phenomenon of 2014 and a group of thirty something friends sat around the patio completely satiated. Homemade Mexican food had been served and devoured and all wore beer induced grins. It was a lovely way to spend a summer evening. It was all quite normal and familiar when the conversation took a sudden turn. Music from the 90’s had played commercial free on one of those Digital TV channels and all night the phrase “I love that song,” could be heard....more

Goooood Morning... Heaven!

Many won’t ever know what it is to lose someone they love after that person has lost their own sense of personal joy. I do.  Though the final lynch pin in my mother’s medical madness that stretched across most of my childhood and adult life, was technically cancer, her first diagnosis and underlying illness was always your basic, run of the mill, albeit ultimately crippling – depression.  My mother darted in and out of personal happiness and emotional stability for most of my life. The first time was when I was 12 and she attempted suicide....more
