Today's breakfast: Two slices of whole wheat toast (extra fiber bread). Once slice with the Dark Chocolate Dreams spread and banana slices, the other slice with a smidge of butter and Crofters Raspberry preserves. Love it! I was hoping for a more interesting lunch today, but as luck had it, I got a call ...

Are You On The Defense?

By Sunday, July 23, 2017 0 No tags Permalink

I recently heard the saying, "There are millions of people out there, just waiting to be offended." Who is offended and who are we defending? We defend ourselves because we see ourselves as separate, like the ego does, and therefore, as something to protect! This is the same as taking something personal. Do you do ...

Kiwi Summer

This was my first real summer in New Zealand. (Friendly fact: summer takes place over the U.S. winter months , since we are in the southern hemisphere). Last year didn’t really count.
