An Ounce of Prevention and A Pound of Cure

0 I am recycling – recycling my articles; the important ones.  We have often heard the phrase, “Practice makes perfect,” and we understand that practice is simply the repetition of something over and over.  This process moves us from unconscious incompetence – we don’t know what we don’t know – to unconscious competence, the capacity to perform a certain task or…

Productive Systems

0 Systems are a series of reproducible efforts. Some are efficient, and some are Rube Goldberg’s crazy inventions. The person who loses their keys consistently has a system just as much as the one who lines up pens on their desk. What matters is having productive systems. It’s much better to take action – any action – than to spin in…

Happy New Year!

0 The New Year is the perfect time to rededicate yourself to enjoying nature. Here is a list of New Year’s resolutions to encourage you to connect with your natural surroundings: 1. Put up a bird feeder. Place feeders in ideal spots for observation.  Have binoculars and a field guide close-by. 2. Go Native. Native plants adapt much easier to periods…

A New Year…Imagine

0 “There is life after retirement, and it is BETTER.”  (Catherine Pulsifer) It is 2015!  Some will welcome the New Year with promises or resolutions to be kept.  Some will start this New Year with the addition of new family members.  Some will plan a vacation trip of a lifetime.  No matter how we “ring in the New Year” for all…

Think Yourself Thin

0 With the end of the year fast approaching many of us are thinking about new beginnings and those New Year’s resolutions. I declare that the New Year is my favorite holiday, if you can call it a holiday. Christmas is over. (What a relief. I know, “Bah humbug.”) For me it’s about making some changes and seeing how I can…

Grounding

0 One of the most common energetic disturbances that modern humans experience is being ungrounded. You may experience this as feeling spacey, absent-minded, anxious, unbalanced or uncoordinated, or like you’re spinning your wheels. Like any building, the human body needs to be able to ground excess energy down into the earth as well as be able to draw the supportive energies…

The Science of Bottle Aging Wine

0 Why is it that some wines can be enjoyed a few months after bottling, while others need time to mature and improve? The answer is kind of complicated! Every batch of wine contains its own unique blend of acids, sugars, minerals, tannins, etc. that determine how the wine will taste when it is young and in the future. Each element…

A New Year…A New Hope

0 This past year was filled with such joy and precious memories.  I look back and I can’t even begin to count all my blessings.  It’s not like there wasn’t heartache, tragedy and obstacles to overcome because there were.  But I surrounded myself with people who rallied behind me, who lifted me up and I was determined to see the “good.”…

And The Winner Is…

0 Last winter’s cold snowstorm left the roads covered in ice for weeks, making for busy tow truck drivers and full auto body repair shops. This winter’s 75 mph windstorm is keeping the tree companies’ phones ringing.

THE CORPORATE VEIL

ANCIENT MARTIAL ART, MODERN WORLD

0 My friend Ed asked me recently, “What in the world is this Takenouchi Ryu you talk about all of the time?” I paused for a moment. This is a very good question that curiously defies an easy reply. “Well, it is a Japanese koryu martial art founded in 1532 by Takenouchi Hisamori during the years of civil strife and war…

Art & Community

0 From the bridge that crosses the Estuary of Bilbao, the museum looks like a gargantuan ship, perhaps a relic of the Basque city’s seaport past or maybe a visiting vessel from a distant galaxy. At night, the titanium skin of the curving hull glows with light reflected from the bustling downtown that surrounds it. Walk from the Guggenheim toward the…

A Mattress that Will Improve Your Life

0 Buying a new mattress is a pretty darn confusing process. They all basically look the same and each brand seems to have five people you know love it and five people you know hate it. Then when you actually go shopping for one you usually get a salesperson that seems more interested in showing you how smart he/she is by…
