Last week was busy—too busy.

Happy New Year NOW!

 In the Celtic tradition, the New Year begins in November instead of January.  This gives a whole new meaning to Halloween, or Hallow’s Eve, when, the ‘Seed Fall’: is celebrated as the days grow shorter and darker.  They honor this time of year with the belief that from death and darkness springs life and light.…

The Authentic Life

How are you showing up in your life?  Do you show up differently depending on who you are with or what circumstances you encounter?  Standing your ground and being authentic to your true nature, even under duress is a challenge and a gift.    My dear friend and colleague, motivational humorist Karyn Ruth White was recently scheduled for…
