Why do I say “surviving?”  Because, the challenge of not knowing what’s next feels like it could actually be life-threatening.  As human beings, we expect to have feelings of CERTAINTY about life changes and choices we make.  A part of learning and growing is we accept some things as “truth” that keep us grounded.  New [...]

Recreating the Healing Power of Touch Without a “Hug Shirt” I was talking on the phone to an old friend and remembered longingly how we used to share healing touch with each other through mutual massage.  I had also learned an added healing technique which accessed the acupuncture meridians.  This treatment was called Jin Shin [...]

As we continue our efforts at diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, it has helped a great deal to understand and appreciate theories of personality.  I have studied and applied the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® method of assessing personality styles for several years that gives a description of the personality based on several indicators of [...]

We often look forward to “CAMPING OUT” to free ourselves of urban clutter and noise, tiring and draining work assignments and forced contact with people we haven’t consciously chosen to interact with.  Now, with this massive shelter in place, the shutdown of many businesses and life that we know has seemingly forced us to “CAMP [...]

As I drove to my office to find a quiet time to write, I looked to the hills in the distance and saw a double rainbow against the horizon.  It seemed the Universe was sending a message to us all:  Behind the darkest cloud, there is always a rainbow.  That message inspired me to write [...]
