Word-Weaving Wholeness

Melting Bitterness into Flowers

As I worked towards releasing my “brothers,” I found I needed to release my adoptive parents too. I had not realized how the hurt and anger from their dysfunction was still lying just under the surface. I needed to give those back too. I made folded representations from paper that dissolves in water for all… Continue Reading →

A Parting Long Overdue

Today, I wrote about a struggle I’ve had for many, many years with not having contact with the 2 brothers I grew up with. One is 2 1/2 years older; the other is 5 years younger. For years – no, for decades I tried to be their sister; I tried to stay in touch. Only,… Continue Reading →

A Summoning

I awaken early. Too early. I try to sleep again. After some time, I drift into restlessness. A couple hours later, I drag myself to a vertical position after three snooze alarms. I’ve overslept. Now, I frantically rush around trying to get out the door. I eagerly focus on the busyness of the day –… Continue Reading →

An Important Announcement

Dr. John Campbell is a professor of nursing in the UK. I began watching his daily COVID-19 updates in March 2020. I don’t catch him every day now, but I have found that his information is spot on. Indeed, I credit his medical advice about how to fight this virus as the reason I survived… Continue Reading →

Another Way Vaccines Have Helped

About 10 years ago, I went to a talk by a doctor who specialized in vaccine research. At the pizza gathering afterwards, while I was sitting next to him, I told him how my mom who’d had Rubella at the age of 3 always made sure we got our vaccines. That’s when he told me… Continue Reading →

Mice and Moving Cheese

Years ago when I worked in consumer finance, my company purchased its biggest competitor, and massive changes were afoot! So they bought every employee a copy of the book, “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Dr. Spencer Johnson. We all read it, then there were the office discussions about it. To be honest, I don’t think… Continue Reading →

Rising Up

The last three weeks have been emotionally and finally physically difficult. The transition back to work has been a challenging one. Not getting everything done I had planned this summer, getting hit with the reality of the current COVID-19 surge, learning I have more work to do on my spiritual path, and sitting at a… Continue Reading →

Reality Check

I have caught a couple of commentaries on the current Delta Variant surge of the unvaccinated that has brought interesting perspectives to the table. One with a background in anthropology, commented that the anti-vaxxers are acting like religious fanatics. They won’t get vaccinated because it flies in the face of their dogmatic beliefs, but that’s… Continue Reading →

Consequences of DeFunding Education

I’m so sad about the current surge of COVID-19 in the U.S. I’m hurting for all the loss of life especially the children who are now orphaned, and the children who are dying. What most don’t realize and American news media has completely failed to put into context is that this is not new. This… Continue Reading →

A Choice

Long day at work. I spent a lot of time on video calls listening to trainings – most boring. Had internet connection issues at my office and my ADHD brain was in full rebellion. By late afternoon, mood was crashing and thoughts were descending down long, dark hallways…. Then I came home and realized, I… Continue Reading →
