Give yourself (and a friend) the gift of renewed friendship

Today I phoned a friend with whom I hadn't spoken for several years. Today I thought - what if she died and I hadn't called her? We have lived in different states for many years now, and had fallen out of touch. Many years ago I had a friend die with me still owing her a letter. It felt awful, knowing that I had missed a chance to tell her one last time that I loved her. Why is this on my mind? There are two reasons. ...more

A Close Encounter

I am amazed how powerful a brief encounter with a stranger can become. Where I work, I see over a hundred different people who are new to me everyday. These relationships are professional but they don't involve me personally. Every so often, you encounter an individual who touches the real you. Effortlessly.   ...more

From a Distance - A Glimpse at Modern Spirituality

Do you remember this hit from the 80's?   Bette Midler singing about how beautiful this world is from a distance? From a distance the world looks blue and green, and the snow-capped mountains white. From a distance the ocean meets the stream, and the eagle takes to flight.   From a distance, there is harmony, and it echoes through the land. It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace, it's the voice of every man.   (from ...more

80 And Life To Go - A Very Personal Story

46 years ago - The Birmingham church bombing - A memory and a warning

September 15th was the 46th anniversary of the 1963 KKK bombings at a Birmingham Alabama church that killed four little girls. 8,000 people attended their funeral.

GPS Needed For Cemeteries

     With the ease of GPS and Google Maps on our laptops, Blackberries and phones, getting lost is really about poor preparation these days. If you do find yourself not knowing the correct address or zip code or with-out modern technology, some one is usually about with a phone or GPS that can help. That said; have you gone to a cemetery lately to try and find the grave of a relative? ...more

No Boobs in the Cry Room

A few weeks ago I posted something on my Facebook status regarding breastfeeding support. Most of my friends know that I breastfeed my daughter, and while I am not of the Breastfeed-or-Die clan I am pretty well versed in the pros and cons of both breastfeeding and formula feeding and have opinions on both. ...more
