John Mayer expressed what so many of us feel. In the face of a barrage of seemingly unsolvable problems (poverty, unemployment, global warming, the coming fiscal cliff, to name a few) we don’t know how we can make an impact, so “we keep waitin on the world to change.” How do you win this waiting ...

I just about died today. Nearly, honestly. This isn’t one of those over dramatized stories, this is all true. And it happened the day before the American elections. My last breath was almost taken on a treadmill at the local gym at 8:16am Monday morning. It was a typical workout, all going according to schedule. ... Continue Reading »
I’m completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death. George Carlin I agree with George. The separation of church and state is extremely important. At its heart, it’s about preserving religious ... Continue Reading »
I auditioned for a choir when I was 10; just me and the choir director huddled in a small room. I was so nervous, I could barely hold it together. She asked me to sing “Silent Night!”.” I don’t think she appreciated my literal interpretation of “silent.” After about 10 seconds of my measlie mezzo ... Continue Reading »
Simple really. Just notes. Notes tucked into books. His idea, all his. An afternoon of errands. Dull, boring, mindless endless jobs “Just running in” He waited in the car with his thoughts. “Right, library next’ I bustle checking things off. Not quite done. He sat with scraps of paper on his lap. Notes to somebody. ... Continue Reading »
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully. When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light. When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it. When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway. When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back. When ... Continue Reading »
When it comes to change, there are three paths to take; waiting for life to happen TO you, making things happen, and turning around and wondering what happened. The first path lacks responsibility. The last path lacks intention. The middle path is the way to go. It is for sure the road less traveled, but ... Continue Reading »
There is no reason. Not one. You can’t tell me anything To change my mind. I know what I know- that this shit’s crazy. Words stuck in anger at the futility of it all. Pointless, meaningless avoidable pain. Bought too easily paid for pain. There is only ever one end. Allowed, demanded. Take that gun, ... Continue Reading »
In our family we have a saying. It started when our kids were younger (before they realized how awesome their parents are). We had some friends in the neighborhood and our kids played there a few times and loved it. From then on, whenever they were upset with us they would pack their bags ... Continue Reading »
The tagline for comedian Jon Stewart’s Daily Show is “It’s even better than being informed.” As a big believer in being informed, this made me think about what IS better than being informed. It hit me- being wise is better than being informed. Being informed is only the first stop on the path to being ... Continue Reading »
I lost someone very important to me last week. I knew he was important, but didn’t realize how significant until after he was gone. Sadness kept reminding me with a nagging, empty feeling. Suddenly the world looked like a different place and it took a while to get my bearings. The words of the great ... Continue Reading »
It hurt like hell, but I did it. I was a mess, thought I might die, but I did it. I bled, cried, and stunk like cabbage but I did it. I did it in cafes, libraries, church pews, bed, and at school Christmas concerts. I did it discreetly but not shamefully. And I did ... Continue Reading »
I’ve never met a single person who WANTS to see the earth desecrated by human greed. Indifference? Yes. Inaction? Yes! Complacency? Yes! Overwhelm? Definitely. So how do we overcome indifference, inaction, complacency and overwhelm? How do we persevere even when our efforts seem like a drop in the bucket? The earth herself provides the answer. ...

Newt Gingrich recently proposed a moon colony to ease over population on earth, leading to lots of late night comedy about Newt wanting to leave earth for a younger planet. He reignited a conversation about space exploration that appears from time to time. Do you think its worthwhile spending money on space exploration? I’ve generally ... Continue Reading »
