Opus - Friday, August 16, 2013
An Opus is one's great work.
The Big Dream!

What do you want? Be Fearless!

Your great work will build itself if you allow it to be the guiding force in you life. Forget what everyone else says, just do what you know in your heart feels right. Fantasy is Our Heart?s Desire, and it is the seed of our Opus. We need to cultivate it, give it water, give it emotional power, and give it Love. Think like a kid, dream, fantasize, play, and think up your happiest possible way to spend your days and that is the seed of your Opus!

Seize the Day! Friday, August 2, 2013

Fearless - July 30, 2010
FEAR is the worst four letter word out there because it has a sticking power. ?Fear of what??, you might ask. Well the answer is as individual as each and every person. Like snowflakes our fears are one of a kind and like snowflakes they can melt away and become healing waters as soon as we shine the warm light of truth upon them. May you meet the world with your heart wide open and may you never miss a moment to LIVE Fearlessly!

Truth - July 23, 2010
Your heart, your truth will lead you to your destiny, if you let it. The question is: will you choose to live your truth? Will you choose to flow with your destiny or will you say no and fight yourself?

Courage - July 16, 2010
The word Courage is a French word that loosely translates as 'Passion of the Heart'. To live from the heart is to love with wisdom and courage; to be brave enough to allow one?s open heart to feel all the emotions it has the capacity to feel and to respond with truth and grace. To follow one?s truth (heart) with grace is not rational and it is not logical, it just is. In matters of life the heart rules.

Patriarchal Faiths and Governments Encourage Terrorism through Religiosity - April 18, 2007
Will women ever stand up and be counted? When is enough, enough? Instead of chasing ghosts, arm the powerless and teach them how to protect themselves and their children from men who use God as a weapon.

Religiosity is Poison to Women. Why is George Bush aligned with a church that hurts us? - April 16, 2007
What's with George and the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast? Our founding fathers included a specific separation of church and state for many good reasons. Women should be outraged by this misuse of public office.

And This Is What You Shall Do - by: Walt Whitman. December 5, 2006
This is one of my favorite poems by Walt Whitman. It's something to think about when the Holiday frenzy starts getting to you. It's a little perspective on things. Things that matter, and things that don't.

Happy Thanksgiving! Nov. 23, 2006
The best part about Thanksgiving is that it has everything to do with family, friends, and giving thanks, and nothing to do with religion. Please remember those who are still hungry. Go to get involved and help end poverty.

Halliburton has been accused of cheating the government. October 25, 2006

There is something very wrong with Armed Educators! October 6, 2006

School Violence October 4, 2006

Belief, Faith, Self Help... A personal relationship with your Creator - September 20, 2006
Why is it that people seem to think that they need a teacher to teach them how to have a relationship with their creator. Spirituality, like breathing, is a natural function of who we are. We are all born with this ability of communion.

Holy See...Holy Shit! September 19, 2006
In such a hotly debated political world the Pope's comments are anything but peaceful. Pope Benedict XVI has insulted and pissed off over 22% of the population of the planet. Instead of apologizing, he arrogantly sits on his golden thrown firmly hanging onto his ego in an act of uncompromising pomposity. Is this the behavior of a man of peace?

Back to School and the silly bureaucracy is in Full Swing - September 14, 2006
Why do schools think that kids are somehow not human beings. Every school year is filled with silly rules, memos, meetings, mostly nonsense. What's with the Lab Lunch?

Energy, Compassion and Survival link us all to The Spirit Tree. August 1, 2006
Consciousness is eternal. Our energy transmutes. Existence is not entirely linked to the physical body. We are all the Spirit Tree, linked through energy waves. Our compassion can raise consciousness by spinning our energy waves on the electromagnetic spectrum, changing our chemistry, raising our frequency, and thereby moving us towards Illumination.

The Sky is Falling...The Sky is Falling! This End Time Retoric is A bunch of Chicken Little Crap! July 24, 2006
When are people going to realize that this 'Chicken Little' politics/theology is nuts! The War mongering media frenzy feeds this hurtful story line. In two weeks nothing else even makes news. Feeding the war has become the objective instead of ending it. Import issues and events, come and go unreported as the world spirals down the path of stupidity.

Mind Matter, Memory, War and Peace July 19, 2006
Sometimes I go on these mind journeys. A combination of mind matter, imagination and intuition - wonderings. Today I wonder why we so easily accept someone else's dream - the "American Dream" without even wondering if that is really what our heart desires or what makes us feel alive and at peace. Is the root of all suffering, the root of war, desire or memory?

Back to Work! July 17, 2006
I've been away on vacation, and while I was off resting, the world seems to have gone crazier. It's Monday, the mail is piled up, the Middle East is blowing up, and while I was resting, the world has gone as usual.

A Congress of Greed and Indifference! July 5, 2006
What does it say about our elected officials when they vote themselves another pay raise while rejecting an increase in the minimum wage? What does it say about us if we let it stand?

Peace, War and Graduation 2006! June 20, 2006
There is a time for Peace, a time for War, and a time for Celebration. June is a time for Graduates and their Families to rejoice! Some folks feel that anytime is a good time to protest the war... I disagree! Every purpose has a time, but at all times Peace requires respect.

My friend's estranged husband beat her up last night. May 5, 2006

$134,121.00 - It's a pretty good salary... If you can collect! May 3, 2006
The experts have figured it out. Mom IS a job and it's worth a pretty good salary. Unfortunately, we don't get paid and our government won't acknowledge our value. Perhaps if they did, world wide, women and children would be better off, and poverty could be eradicated.

New Equipment Blues - May 2, 2006
One step forward two or ten steps back. We've all been there. Patience is the hardest thing to keep in mind when everything is crashing around you.

May Day - May 1, 2006
May Day History and Mythology is fascinating... It has become the day of the worker, but it stared out as something much more fun!

KEEP OUT! Authorized Entry for the "IN" crowd only. April 27, 2006

Women need to step up and support each other! April 18, 2006
This weeks news has been filled with another stupid thing to divide women. They call it the "Mommy Wars". Don't get caught up in this nonsense! We need to keep focused and keep supporting each other! This election, make your votes count, vote for women!

"Kosher for Passover" - Media hype or meaningful? April 12, 2006
The spring holiday's are upon us and year after year I wonder, as many do, what value there is in the specially designated foods and the leavening vs. un-leavening debate. Is it just another way to segregate, manipulate and oppress?

Rocky, the dog, got a picture ID card... what's that about? April 11, 2006

School Projects, is this homework for Kids or Parents? April 4, 2006
Dioramas, tri-boards and enormously involved school projects, most kids can't do them without help. Eventually, even with the help of a parent kids get bored and check out. For parents it's a tremendous amount of work just trying to keep the kids on task so the project gets completed. The real challenge is to have fun with it too!

Duke University Men's Lacrosse Team Accused of Gang Raping a Young Woman. March 30, 2006
It's shocking but not really surprising. The behavior started long ago in our youth programs. We single out superstars, continually treat them as if they are "Special" and eventually they feel so empowered that they think they are above the law. The fact is that rape is a crime!

Missing the Mark on Youth Sports! March 29, 2006
From Little League all the way through High School we are sending a terrible message to our children. The dog eat dog mentality of youth sports is not fostering healthy minds or bodies. Perhaps it's time to rein in our school coaches, administrators and the mainly publicly funded programs that hurt our kids.

Finally An Immigration Bill. March 28, 2006
The bickering continues, but on the surface the compromise on an immigration bill shows some real promise!

The Illegal Invasion of Iraq was a crime and Bush is the criminal! March 27, 2006
Producing fake evidence to provoke an attack on a foreign country or planning to assassinate a head of state to overthrow his government is sleazy and criminal. What kind of man asks the favor of a foreign government to be an accomplice in such criminal behavior? What message are the United States and Great Britain sending to the world?

GPS is tracking more than you think! March 14, 2006
GPS has graduated from military use to tracking pets, and now people. Locally many towns have installed GPS systems to track their employees. The FCC mandated that by 2005 all cell phones must be fitted with GPS. What price are you willing to pay for security? Is the Fed manipulating us with F-E-A-R?

Welcome to Our New Website! March 13, 2006

In the meantime, Thank You all for joining us thus far on this amazing journey of possibility!

Write a New Program, Free of Dis-Ease! March 10, 2006
I was thinking about disease. In general, what is Dis-Ease? How have the old bastions of perceived authority affected our lives? Who is running the machine? Is the perceived authority of the machine causing the disease? Perhaps it's time for a new operating system. We have an infinite number of program choices, and our choices will affect our future and the future of our children. How exactly a new world paradigm, free of disease is to be birthed, depends on women.

South Dakota Bans Abortion, Part 2 March 8, 2006
This is an assault against women and women's rights. It has been reported that over 300,000 woman have reported being raped last year. Only 39 percent of rapes and sexual assault are reported. Over 32,000 pregnancies result from rape every year, and that's only the ones that are reported. More than half of all rapes occur before the age of 18. In 2004 the CDC reported that 734,965 women were treated and released for acts of violence against women.

South Dakota Bans Abortion, Part 1 March 7, 2006
South Dakota Govoner Mike Rounds signed into law the bill HB1215 which basically is the prohibition of any acts that would assist a woman in terminating an unwanted pregnancy and bans nearly all abortions in the state. This is an assult against women and women's rights. South Dakota has decided to be the first state in the United States to fight the fight. By enacting this legislation in direct conflict with the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in 1973.This is about a woman's right to self-determination.

I feel the quickening, where is Spring? March 6, 2006
March is here and it's finally the end of the winter. It's the last few quiet moments before life begins anew. In the quite darknness of the warm spring earth lies the Golden Seed of your dreams. Get ready ... spring is almost here.

Wake Up LMDC, The WTC Memorial needs a redesign! February 28, 2006
This design was ridiculous from the very beginning. Since January 2004 family members, and New Yorkers have all expressed their great unhappiness with the selection. Why would the LMDC choose to leave us and our beloved city with some dank dark holes in the ground? This should be a beautiful cathedral built to hope. The World Trade Center should be replaced by The World Peace Center, a place of honor and renewal. Where the over 3000 souls from 92 countries can be remembered and celebrated. We need to build a place where our loved ones will shine and where the world will shine!

Why would a Cleric need an Army? February 27, 2006
When Clerics engage in violence, it seems to me, that they are no longer holy men. Abdulaziz al-Hakim is the most influential Shia Muslim leader in the Iraqi Parlament. He controls a militia of twenty thousand and my question is what in the world does a Cleric need with an army?

Schedules, boon or bane? February 23, 2006
Schedules can either make life run smoothly or can make life miserable. For working moms, school vacations and the constant rescheduling around other people's schedules can really get exhausting. It is no wonder women find it so hard to be taken seriously

Is it Blasphemous? February 22, 2006
Is it blasphemous to say that these old books don't serve us anymore and should be thrown in the garbage? Well, that's only if you think that they are sacred. Can something be sacred if it hurts and demoralizes half of the population of the planet?

Growing Pains. February 21, 2006
Growing pains don't have to be about suffering, sometimes they're really funny. They are always necessary and they are good for us.

Inspiration! February 14, 2006
Creativity is so Inspiring! I Love it when people bring good energy and share it. The spiraling up of energy, that moving on a wavelength that grows, and multiplies the energy. It is really amazing. I got some of that energy and it so inspired me to continue to grow Peace. We can all grow the energy and grow Peace in our world. I am inspired today and I want to share that energy with you. Everyday I try to fill my heart with Love, Peace and Compassion and move my good energy out.

Hamas, Women and The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. February 13, 2006
When it comes to the situation with Hamas and Israel the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights offers guidance, common sense ideas and a starting point for negotiations. Shaira Law and the outrageous aggression towards women can and must be turned around in order for this world to know Peace. This must be done by women, supported by those men who are enlightened enough, brave enough and secure enough in themselves to see through the veil and embrace the beauty that a world including a full partnership of the feminine will bring.

Part 3 SPEAK OUT! Peace activists, Citizens, are being jailed for non-violent acts of civil disobedience. Friday February 3, 2006
The State Of The Union is pretty apparent. A mother and a congressman's wife are removed from the people's house and one is arrested. Four peace activists are jailed on misdemeanor charges for an act of non-violent civil disobedience in 2003. After a jury voted 9-3 for acquittal they were later tried in Federal Court. Not since since the late sixties and early seventies has the government resorted to this type of behavior, suppression, and censorship. SPEAK OUT!

Support Science - VOTE for Change! January 31, 2006
Support Science and the free exchange of information! This year there are 33 Senate seats up for re-election. We need to give them all the boot, and institute some term limits because those entrusted to be our stand-ins are not doing their job. Our top Scientists are being threatened and censored, our liberties are under attack and these "gentlemen and women" are patting each other on the back while our rights are being taken away.

WAKE UP AMERICA! The Whitehouse is CENSORSING our Scientists! January 30, 2006
Dr. James E. Hansen, the Director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York has been threatened and is being censored by the Bush Administration. He told a University of Iowa audience 'In my more than three decades in government, I have never seen anything approaching the degree to which information flow from scientists to the public has been screened and controlled as it is now.'

Enron and the Bush Connection, it is a lot more involved than you think. January 25, 2006
Enron, Kenneth Lay and George Bush both Junior and Senior have a very close friendship with many mutual business dealings. Finally after over 4 years, the Enron trial begins. It will either be a rude awakening to America of the extent of corruption in our government, or it will be swept under the rug by the enormouns money and power of the Bush Dynasty.

Drones, Unmanned Ultra High Tech Remote Controlled Killing Devices. January 24, 2006
Predator Drones, Global Hawks, X45A prototype unmanned remote controlled devices that can take pictures, send them back to Langley Virginia and drop satellite guided bombs on targets. Sometimes we hit specific targets and sometimes there is what the DOD terms as Collateral Damage. That is an antiseptic way of saying we killed innocents. We are sending these drones around the world and really pissing people off. Countries around the world and their people are hating Americans because our administration is behaving really badly with their high tech toys.

What happened to the Fourth Amendment? January 23, 2006
Even though we have specific rights detailed by the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights, this Administration thinks it is OK to eavesdrop on the American Public. The balance of power has become creepy and weird. The government has taken the position that with no meaningful judicial review any American citizen alleged to be an Enemy Combatant could be detained indefinitely without charges or council on the government's say so. First Yahoo, then Google and your international phone calls then your email and local phone calls. Where does it end?

What did our Founding Fathers Seek? Freedom from King George January 18, 2006
Three hundred years ago, the poet Matsuo Basho said Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old, seek what they sought. What did our Founding Fathers seek? Freedom from King George. Sound familiar? In 1776 our Declaration of Independence explained it like this. Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is elected President of Liberia! Jan 17, 2006
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is the first woman elected President in an African Country! She replaces a brutal war-lord and offers new hope to Liberia and to the African continent. I believe that women will be the change that brings about a more peaceful world, and I am encouraged that even though the United States is lagging behind, other countries are moving forward in a progressive way. This is Wonderful News!

Friday the 13th - Myth, Murder, Money, Magesty, the Pope and Women January 13, 2006
Friday the Thirteenth myths include stories about Kings, Popes, Warrior Monks, The Crusades, Women, Spirituality, Worship, The Knights Templar and Ancient Cultures. Is it really an unlucky day? Twenty one million people in the US suffer from an irrational fear of Friday the Thirteenth causing an estimated loss of revenue to business of nearly nine hundred million dollars. It may be more unlucky for women than men.

Personal Best.: Are we getting that from the Senate or Judge Alito? January 12, 2006
Doing your 'Personal Best' is so important. I am always amazed by how many people are willing to do an adequate job; not a good job, not a bad job just an adequate job. It is frustrating on a personal level but when I see it happening in our government I really get discouraged. We have entrusted our politicians with great power and great responsibility and in such matters as the confirmation of Judge Alito I expect one hundred and ten percent from our representatives!

Global Connectios: Us, Them and most importantly We! Part 2 January 11, 2006
We are flying all over the world, the boundaries and boarders of continents and countries and waters and things are so muddy and smudged. People connect from all over the world. Cultures connect from all over the world. It is such a global community now that some of the dogma and the precepts and the customs and things that were so important at a certain time and a certain place are just so irrelevant today. They don?t work now and we need to find a new way to understand and relate to one another.

Global Connections: Us, Them and Most Importantly We. Part 1 January 10, 2006
Us vs. Them... racism, in all forms is such an ugly manifestation of fear. I often wonder how it became so ingrained in our societies. We all bleed, we all breath air, we all desire love. All over the world people talk about ?Us? and ?Them? as if somehow we are different. History books would have little to talk about if it were not for one group fighting another for the right to be ?right? I guess. When will we get it that Us is Them, and we are all one.

What's the big deal about Windmills? January 9, 2006
Wind is readily available, it's blowing around all the time, it doesn't hurt the environment and it's practically free. It's kind of a no brainer. The biggest problem is what these will do to our beautiful views. I love nature, I love the beach and I honestly think these wind farms are not that bad looking, not nearly as bad looking at the energy rates map...

Wake Up Pretty Bird and Remember Who You Are! January 6, 2006
This country is full of "Pretty Birds", people who have been blessed with money and privilege. How is it that the idealistic baby boomers, the Woodstock Generation who once believed that we could make a difference have turned to lifestyles of vanity, excess and ego feeding? America spends 12 billion dollars a year on looking pretty while the world struggles with staying alive. What happened to us?

Say Cheese! I Love my Digital Camera but where did all my pictures go? January 5, 2006
I Love technology! I love everything about digital technology, and my digital camera. Over the years I have taken thousands of pictures. The only problem is...where are they? My priceless collection of photographs, the chronology of my family's story is hidden in files and folders with obscure sometimes cryptic names...

Haiti, a country built on freedom poor beyond belief. January 4, 2006
Haiti is a country built on freedom. Possibly the only country formed by the successful revolution of slaves. An amazing accomplishment yet the country is in shambles. Broken and poor beyond belief, eighty percent of the population lives on less than one dollar a day.

Vacation, Resolutions and New Year's stuff January 3, 2006
I had a great vacation! I left all of my technology behind and went snowboarding with my family. Now the New Year's resolution...mine is to continue podcasting for peace. To work towards living a life of grace and humility, always thinking about 'paying it forward'.

Peace and Blessings to all people of all faiths! December 21, 2005
The great miracle of this season remains Peace, LOVE, Light and the divine presence in each and every creation of Light. During this beautiful festival time of conscience and introspection, look in the mirror. What you see looking back at you is as much the Messiah as any will ever be. You and every single person on this planet has the power of one. WE ARE ONE. Give a gift of light to the future. Give yourself, your Love and your commitment to PEACE.

Capital Punishment Part 2 Look at the Social commentary underlying crime. December 14, 2005
In a country where war is the answer to solving the world's problems. The model, the expectation is for society to behave as the government behaves. The state sanctioned punishment for misbehavior is too easily violence and death. Do we bring further horror upon our selves by taking a life as punishment? We have a responsibility to the people of this country to be good role models. Our own government condemns other governments for what we do ourselves. What does that say about our society?

Is Capital Punishment Federal Government Sanctioned Killing? December 13, 2005
The notorious Stanley "Tookie" Williams was executed by lethal injection this week. We condemn the public hangings in Riyadh but are we any better. Can taking a life in anger and vengeance alleviate the pain, loss, suffering and anguish of losing a loved one. Is killing a relief of bereavement or does it create more horror. "Thou shalt not kill" so many laws are built on the tenants of faith, but how does it work that the punishment for killing is killing? It hasn't worked in over 2000 years so why would it start working now? Is there a better way?

HR 2631 is a bill called the Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund. December 12, 2005
The Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund has been proposed to allow for those who are conscientiously opposed to participation in war to allow for proper social contribution without supporting the war machine. Our military budget out spends every other country by more than three hundred seventy billion dollars. If we were to apply one third of the military budget to developing energy independence imagine how quickly we can have alternatives that would no longer require us to be in someone else's backyard and someone else's business.

Ethanol Fuel from Corn. Clean, cheep, renewable and homegrown. December 9, 2005
We grow more corn than anyone in the world. Ethanol Fuel made from corn is a stable reliable proven technology for the production of fuel that can run vehicles that are currently running on our roads. We have the technology, the land, the scientific and engineering know how to make this a reality. It will be good for the environment create jobs and it will stop our reliance on foreign oil. Forty percent of the vehicles in Brazil run on ethanol, so what are we waiting for?

Imagine. In memory of John Lennon 1940-1980. December 8, 2005
IMAGINE...So important a message that 150 Nations contributed to the Garden of Peace that surrounds the beautiful mosaic inscribed with one single word, IMAGINE, embodying the principle of world peace. On the 25th Anniversary of the loss of John Lennon, we remember and reflect. "Imagine all the people living life in Peace... I hope someday you will join us and the world will live as one."

Who is broadcasting to our troops, and what is the ADF connection? December 6, 2005
After yesterday's podcast I started to look into the ADF and I found out some really interesting things. The ADF is a huge sponsor of Rush Limbaugh and spends millions to make sure that Liberal viewpoints like that of Ed Schultz are not heard by our troops. Why, and how can the DOD allow this to go on with our tax dollars? Where is the separation of church and state?

Eight Hundred attorneys standing by to defend Christmas. Go figure! December 5, 2005
Merry Christmas vs. Happy Holidays, does it matter? There is no shortage of Christmas decoration in this country. Americans last year spent 8 Billion dollars on decorations, yet the faith based organization ADF is worried that Christmas is being discriminated against and people's first amendment rigthts are being squashed. Surely at this time of giving, there are better things to spend time and money on.

Propaganda, a weapon of war but probably safer than most. December 2, 2005
People have used propaganda since the beginning of time. Win over the hearts and minds of the people and you will win the war. Any other victory is an empty victory and can never be sustained. Propaganda requires all kinds of people to be willing to be involved in the game. Everyone puts their little spin on the story. Propaganda or opinion?

Dance of a Tree. December 1, 2005
Did you ever wonder about trees? They sleep, but do they dream? If they dream what do they dream of?

This country was built by immigrants. We need a policy! November 29, 2005
This country was built by immigrants. People want to come here and make a better life. That is a compliment, not a detriment. What we need to figure out is how to handle the documentation.

Public Education, what are they teaching our kids? November 28, 2005
What are our children really being taught by Public Education? Is it really possible that lesson plans used 30 years ago are appropriate and useful today? Are we planting seeds of cruelty? As we evolve why aren't the lessons evolving? Art, music, literature, film, all evolve but education is lagging way behind.

Great Sweet Potatoes start with Fresh Yams. ENJOY! November 23, 2005
Great sweet potatoes start with fresh yams. It's so simple, use fresh ingredients, don't overcook them, use a little maple syrup (the real kind no fake substitutes), a little cinnamon and they are done. Tasty and delicious - Enjoy! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Remembering JFK and his Challenge with a new one. November 22, 2005
President John F. Kennedy challenged this country to land a man on the moon and return him safely home within one decade. This country mobilized like never before or since in the history of America and accomplished an amazing feat. Our energy crisis demands such action.

Five Billion Six Hundred Million dollars on an Anthrax Vaccine. Why? November 21, 2005
Eighty four percent of those receiving the Anthrax Vaccine have had adverse reactions. The FDA has not approved this as an authorized vaccine, yet we are spending 5.6 billion dollars on it's manufacturer. Military personnel have been refusing to take the vaccine because of the side effects, even at the risk of court martial. What does that say to you?

The Patriot Act Part 2 Who is flying the Spaceship? November 18, 2005
Continued from November 17, 2005. Who is flying the spaceship? This government is a democracy, by and for the people. When the people no longer have checks and balances to keep the Executive and Judicial Branches in order, we are all at risk for losing our freedom. Even in a perfect world, how safe can anyone really be?

The Patriot Act Part 1 How much will you give up for Safety? November 17, 2005
What are you willing to give up for your freedom? Living in a free society comes with some benefits and some risks. How do you define terrorism, and how does our government define terrorism? Who is keeping track of the secret courts, the wire taps, the background checks, bank and phone survelience. When is safety just too costly? Even in a perfect world you can't protect against everything. The Patriot Act has extended the powers of the Executive and Judicial branches WAY beyond what seems appropriate in the name of safety and our Civil Rights are at risk.

Life is a Rollercoaster. November 16, 2005
Do you like rollercoasters? 456 feet in the air, 128 miles per hour, the ride last only seconds. Life is like a rollercoaster. If you really want to get the fullest experience, when you get to the top you have to let go. You have to put your hands up in the sky and let go and embrace the fear. Riding a rollercoaster is really just symbolic what I'm really talking about is letting go in life, taking chances. Is the hardest thing letting go or is the hardest thing believing that the fall won't be fatal?

Seashells and A Universe of Possiblity. November 15, 2005
I found this really beautiful big Atlantic Moon Seashell today. What's really interesting is that the inside is even more beautiful and spectacular than the outside. Maybe a lot of things are like that. Inside what we think is reality is a more spectactular and amazing reality just waiting for us to mature the conception of relationships between one another. It's a universe of possibility...

Christmas in November? Bah Humbug! November 14, 2006
Thanksgiving hasn't even come yet, Halloween has just passed. It's only the beginning of November and the media marketing machine is already churning. I find the whole gifting thing becomming just nauseating. I say we boycott the gifting, save tons of money on wrapping paper and send it to some really worthy charity.

Oil Companies and Foreign Governments Twist the American People, squeezing the market and ripping us off. November 10, 2005
Thirty Three billion dollars in profits in one quarter. Consumers in the United States are stuck with a system that belongs in a museum. Fossil fuels, oil and natural gas are the life blood of the US economy. We are being held hostage by big Oil companies, and radical foreign governments. This is a National Security Issue.

France is burning. November 9, 2005
France is burning. Cries of God is Great echo throughout hundreds of towns and provinces. Bands of youth riot and vandalize burning thousands of cars. They are breaking into shops, burning schools, bus stations and even a police station. Poverty, unemployment and discrimination are at the heart of the matter, the undercurrent is revolution...

Second In A Series Walk a Mile featuring Henry Luk in China Part 2. November 8, 2005
Part 2 - with Henry Luk in China. Here's the second part of my fascinating interview. Henry talks about how China is changing, from a nation that was very backward to now a very modern environment in the cities and a very global minded communities.

First In A Series Walk a Mile featuring Henry Luk in China Part 1. November 7, 2005
In my quest to bring to you aspects of different cultures, I am very pleased to feature: "Henry Luk In China". China is home to the single largest population on this planet. It is the most exciting opening culture in the world with a tremendous economy, second largest after the US. Please Join me in this very enlightening conversation with Henry.

Judge Samuel Alito Not Supreme Court Material. November 4, 2005
Judge Samuel Alito, the most recent nominee to the Supreme Court is another really strange choice. I wonder if The White House has been doing their homework. It has been reported that he refused to recuse himself from two cases in which he had personal, financial conflicts of interest. Does that really show just prudence? Is this really befitting of a Supreme Court Justice?

Unity is written into the currency of our Country. November 3, 2005
The concept of Unity is built into our currency. E pluribus unum is written on every dollar, every coin, it is the most common symbol of unity in our daily lives. We are One. The founding fathers got it, they understood, and wrote their version of democracy and social responsibility based on Unity based on the concept of understanding that we are all one people.

The Power of One, Stronger then you think. November 1, 2005
There is no number more powerful than One. One person can do so much if you are willing to get a little dirty and work hard. Rosa Parks was a famous One, but we can all do our little bit. Sometimes you might think your efforts are a waste of time but they are not. It may take years to see the the fruits of your labor. But your power can affect the lives of many, by giving joy, peace and friendship.

KIA in Iraq, Over 2000 and counting. October 28, 2005
Killed In Action over 2000 and counting. The headlines read "Milestone in Iraq, 2000 dead". The numbers are so deceiving. What about the 7800 wounded and sent home or the 8500 wounded and sent back in? We need to support our men and women over there and make sure our government isn't minimizing their loss. This is a gigagantic quagmire, the violence is escalating, what is the exit stragegy?

Harriet Miers, you're out-a-here! October 27, 2005
Harriet Miers withdrew this morning as a nominee for the Supreme Court, and I think that is a very good thing. The fact that she was unwilling to be open and let Americans know who she is and what she is about is not in the best interest of this country. This is a government of the people and by the people, and if you are not willing to tell us who you are you just don't belong in that position.

Rosa Parks is an American Hero and a Courageous, Inspiration to All Women and to All People. October 26, 2005
Rosa Parks is an American Hero. A woman who quietly, peacefully, guided public consciousness towards racial equality. To me she is a courageous and inspirational role model. A woman who refused to be marginalized or acquiesce to demeaning treatment We as a society have come a long way in 50 years, but we have a long way to go. Like Rosa Parks, the champions of our future will be Women.

Poems, dreams, stuff you might find and think about on a rainy day. Otober 25, 2005
When the weather is really lousy you might find yourself, as I did today, looking through stuff. Piles of things you've been meaning to get to but just haven't had the time. Those little pieces of thought, the sketches of dreams, profound thoughts written on a scrap of paper or a poem stuffed into a folder. Little bits of dream matter...what to make of them, and do they matter?

Take a Snap Shot of One Amazing Moment and Keep it Forever. October 24, 2005
It's so hard when you come home with a newborn. My first baby was so colicky that she cried for four months straight. I couldn't even imagine a peaceful, happy, contented baby, but one night she stopped crying. She stopped just for a couple of minutes, and I told myself "remember this moment, remember this time" I really locked it in my mind. I hardly remember anything else about her being a newborn but that moment, that sweet moment is mine forever....

Poverty - Can it be Eradicated by Empowering Women? Part 2. October 21, 2005
Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the poorest places on earth. Twenty thousand people a day die there of thirst and starvation. One amazing woman has identified a real workable sustainable solution. She recognized that 80 percent of the farmers in Africa are women, and mobilized them to plant trees. Women are the caretakers and the keepers of the womb of humanity. The womb of humanity is the Earth.

Poverty - Can it be Eradicated by Empowering Women? Part 1. October 20, 2005
Scientific American's September 2005 Special Issue has an amazing article by Jeffrey Sachs, the Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and a member of the United Nations Millennium Project. This Project's goal is to half extreme poverty by the year 2015...

Another Young Mother A Victim, her small children Orphaned. October 19, 2005
Another day and another young mother is found beaten to death, a victim of domestic violence. This 24 year old woman left a toddler and a four month old infant orphaned. Maybe it's time to think about marriage like driving a car. You take a course and a written test so Marriages don't have to crash and burn. Then people might know how to get off the road of marriage with out violence.

First In A Series - Walk A Mile Featuring: Josh In Japan. October 18, 2005
In my continuing effort to dialog with people from around the world, I am pleased to feature: "Josh In Japan". Josh is on active duty with the US Navy and also runs a top rated podcast all about Japan. Join me in an enlightening conversation and a really informative perspective from Josh, about Japan, and what it's like for an American immersed in the local culture in The Land of the Rising Sun.

Monday and the Dinner Dilemma. October 17, 2005
Another week and again the age old question... What's for dinner? For me, and most mom's it's the 'Dilemma of my Life'. If you ask kids what they want they'll tell you cake. But you can't give them cake. I'm out of ideas. Today I tried something new. How did it go you might ask? Well,I'm onto dinner number two today. It's been that kind of Monday.

Be Informed -Take time to understand the Spiritual practices of others. October 14, 2005
What is the meaning of life? Were we created by God? Who's in charge? Who knows, but 88% of Americans believe in some kind of spiritual answer. People go through lots of very difficult and painful things and at some point you realize that we are all in this together, we are all one. Take time to be informed, to understand the Spiritual practices of others.

Stress... New York is always on Terror Alert. How do we deal? October 13, 2005
Stress, it makes your neck hurt, your mind dull and your day distracted. Most of the time we stress about things we have no control of. Here in New York we are always on Terror Alert. People are wigged out. The Mayor gets on TV and says stupid things. How do we deal? We listen to our Pod of course.

The Army is having recruiting troubles. Lowering standards is not a good 'Plan B'. October 11, 2005
It has been reported that the talk around the Pentagon and in the halls of Congress is 'What to do about the Army's low enlistment figures for 2005?'. It seems that this year's recruiting shortfall is in the range of 7,000 to 10,000 soldiers. In response they have resorted to some very unusual and quite frankly stupid measures to fill their ranks with bodies.

Columbus was a creep! Why did we give him a Federal Holiday? October 10, 2005
Today is Columbus Day. Our Nation's Capital, the District of Columbia, was named for Columbus. Unfortunately, although our children's school books glorify him as the one who discovered America, he was far from a hero. Columbus was actually a creep. A slave trader and murderous conquer. Why would this government honor him with a Federal Holiday? Surely there are many throughout history who deserve this recognition. He is not one of those persons.

In Afghanistan 25 percent of Parliament seats are reserved for women. Why not in USA? October 7, 2005
Twenty Seven Year old Malalai Joya was elected to Parliament in Afghanistan. She is an outspoken opponent of the powerful Warlords in that country. As we, the US continue to assist this country to build a democratic government, we have helped them write into their official documentation a requirement that 25 percent of the parliamentary seats will be reserved for women. Why not here in the USA?

An Apple a Day. October 5, 2005
Apples have been associated with love, health, and a great deal of mythology over the years. Sir Isaac Newton, Aphrodite, Avalon and Hippocrates all share apple lore. There are over 7500 different varieties and almost as many stories. There's nothing like biting into an apple right off the tree. In honor of Rosh Hashanah my family and I went apple picking.

Career vs. Motherhood Why women are at risk for domestic violence. October 3, 2005
In an article today a reporter talks to her daughter about the job choices for women. Most woman who choose to work inside the home as a mother give up thier income, their name, and their ability to move about freely. Without an income they are at the mercy of their partner. Women stay in bad situations because they have no choices, powerless without money. Nationwide, worldwide women stay in dangerous situations. 50% of all homeless women and children in the US are there because of violence in the home.

The Creative force is very Spiritual and we All have it. September 29, 2005
Everyone is creative, whether or not you consider yourself an artist. I think spirituality is a creative force. Some kind of connection that we all make. You don't have to be able to draw or paint or compose music to be an artist. It's this very individual, very personal understanding of the One, the Everything. So many of us over the years have been squashed by a mentor, someone whom we might have looked up to. These hurt our understanding of creativeness, our personal sense of spirit, and contribute to a hurting world.

What does it mean to be Spiritual? September 28, 2005
What exactly does it mean to be spiritual? A lot of people go to church, temple or mosque. Everybody knows what they know, what they know to be their own truth. People trying to make sense of what we're doing here. The unanswerable questions. Do you need to pay homage to some guy that sits on a golden thrown? So many of us are led to believe God to be some angry man. I don't think so

Go For It! Add some Music to your Life! September 27, 2005
So I finally took the leap, I added Music to my segment. I'm a little unsure about this but sometimes you just have to say "What the Heck!" and go for it. It's hard to put it out there. All of us suffer with the insecurity of trying something completely new. The nerve racking part is having no experience with this. It's not knowing the outcome that gives us butterflies. What I do know is that if I can do it, so can you!

My most precious treasure fits in a milk crate. September 26, 2005
My most precious treasure fits in a milk crate. The pay sucks, the job is grueling so...Why do it? Every waking moment I commit to the angels. The sweet little lives entrusted to my care by the Great Spirit. These are not mine, they belong to the universe, I am mearly their guardian and advocate, managing their care until they come of age. If I do my job the very best I can, my hope is to become obsolete.

Why do some Moms look so bad? Take Care of Yourself! September 23, 2005
Why do they look so bad? I was looking around today, and I asked myself, "Why do these mothers look so bad"? And it occured to me that since society places so little value on what mothers do and, then eventually it's going to seep right into your brain... Some women have been treated with such little value for so long that they don't even value themselves.

Stay-at-home Moms discriminated against - Part 2. September 22, 2005
"Stay-at-home Moms" are excluded from the process because of a specific limitation. The limitation is our requirement for quality child care. Having a limitation does NOT make a person a sub-standard human being. The country has made specific accomodations for others with limitations, why did they forget us?

Is the Occupation of "Mom" Discriminated Against? September 21, 2005
Why is it so difficult for Mothers to be part of the political process? Is the Occupation "Mom" discriminated against? Being a "Stay-at-home Mom" is an occupation with specific limitations. The country has made specific accomodations for others with limitations with the American's with Disabilities Act of 1990. Listen to how interestingly this Legistation fits the "Stay-at-home Parent" profession.

The Equal Rights Amendment. September 20, 2006
The Equal Rights Amendment was introduced in 1923. Eighty two years later it is still not part of the Constitution of the United States. Why? Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article. Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.

The Pledge of Allegiance - Who needs it? September 15, 2005
I pledge allegiance to the flag. Today I read that again someone is sueing in the supreme court about the constitutionality of the Pledge in the public schools. I don't have a problem with the under God part but the part about "to the republic for which it stands", I wonder about that. What exacty does it stand for?

John Roberts for Chief Justice? Why? September 14, 2005
John Roberts is clearly a very learned man but as for Chief Justice of the supreme court, I don't think he has a real grasp on what kind of contribution women make to this society.

Representation - It's Time for Women to Use Our Power, Part 2. September 13, 2005
Our founding fathers might have been really learned interesting great guys for their time, but in this time the halls of our capital are carved with emptiness for women. Carved in stone are the rights of MEN. There is no mention of Women, no mention of people only Men. All PEOPLE are created equal and all people are entitled to be fairly represented. As we watch the process of the Supreme Court nomination circus we all have to consider these questions.

Ripple Effect. September 12, 2005
If one person, just one person has a really big idea, and they tell another person or two people, the ripple is bigger, and soon it washes over what was once there and creates a new landscape.

HumanValue- It's Time for Women to Use Our Power. September 8, 2005
Human Value, what does that mean with regard to women in society? In the United State of America we are not represented in our government, and globally we are not represented. Where does this leave our daughters?

Politics and Religion - The two No No's we really need to talk about. September 7, 2005
Religion and Politics, people say if you want to get along you should never talk about those two things. But I think those are precisely the two things we need to talk about. Something that worked 2000 years ago is just not really relevant or useful today. In this age of internet and access connecting is easy. This is a global community outside of politics and religion. We need to talk about this stuff, dialog .

The First day of School. Is Professionalism too much to ask? September 6, 2005
Today is the first day of school. This is where they start Powerful thinking in our Public Schools. It's very frustrating to a parent. We spend a lot of money, a lot of time, a lot of effort making sure our part of the process is working. Unfortunately, the system seems to suffer from "it's not my job" syndrome

Hurricane Katrina, They need our help now. September 5, 2005
This situation is desperate. It's been 5 days and 50,000 people are still stranded on rooftops starving. Thousands are dying of thirst in waist deep water. People are literally dying where they sit waiting for this government to help them, but where is our government? These are working people, taxpayers, just like you and me, and they need HELP desperately! Why has it taken this government 5 days to get to Louisiana? We can get aid halfway across the world over-night. We need more than creative thinking on this one, we need ACTION!

Don't be in such a hurry. August 30, 2005 RT 12:26
One day, a snowy day I had this revelation of thought, I wasn't paying attention because I had so much on my mind and I crashed into the car in front of me. I get out of the car and I say to this old man "Im so sorry" and this old man says to me "Don't Be in Such A Hurry, I'm Worried About You - Slow Down, Don't Be in Such a Rush!". And the guy says forget it.

Global Connections. August 29, 2005
We connect in a multitude of ways but connecting as a global people is a lot harder to do. It has to be personal, there has to be some familiarity or it's hard to make the connection. I think that's why some of these major religions are floundering. They don't make it personal because it's very difficult to connect to something that worked 2000 years ago.
