Why I Boycott Starbucks

Why I Boycott Starbucks

Recently a friend jested on Facebook that he would be tagging myself and my husband every time he passed by a Starbucks; that it would be funny. What was funny is that the jest was a product of my husband hissing at a Starbucks coffee as it went by in our friend’s hand the previous week. Yes, my husband and I hiss in Starbuck’s general direction. In a moment of pride,...

The Quest for The One Right Way

The Quest for The One Right Way

If a world is in constant search for the One Right Way, power may become corrupt, and individual lives meaningless to those who control the resources. The One Right Way may become the ultimate goal, leaving behind the importance of nurturing, love, healthy communities & healthy ecosystems.

Happy Holidays: A Look at Gift-Giving

I’m still unclear if it is appropriate to say “Merry Christmas” anymore, or if I should choose the generic-yet-thoughtful “Happy Holidays” as I move about the world.

Karaoke Funeral

Karaoke Funeral

Now, please don’t think I am heartless. A guy died. That is sad. He was apparently very loved and adored – was a KJ himself, and the bar was full of the people who’s lives he had touched in his work. He was only 37. I am sorry for the loss in his community. But I wanted my Karaoke Night, dammit! I wanted fun, and laughter, and connection, and screaming over loud music!

Portland with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

I loved so many things about the show. I loved that Macklemore took the time to talk to us, tell us stories, and do his crowd magic. I loved the balance between mixing it up and keeping it real. I loved the encore!

Using Force – My Karate Adventure

What has been most interesting for me to look at have been my own stories around using my body forcefully, and what is appropriate for “girls” to do. I still have the thought that “I don’t wanna hurt anybody!” So while my body is getting a work-out, and there have been some days of very sore muscles, it is also a spiritual practice; an opportunity to look at any old stories that may be holding me back from stepping into my true power.

Imagining Better

Imagining Better

There is an inner knowing that all is well, I am right where I should be, and that good and more good is already mine. Now, don’t get me wrong – I love my life. I have great relationships with my family and friends, a great community I consider myself an important part of, and lots of talents and skills that do will continue to serve me and my planet well. I do, however, know that there is always more good to experience. That since the Universe is infinite, then so can my experience of it and its good be.
