Meet the Tachments Family!

Once upon a time, in a peaceful village, there lived the Tachments family. Mother and Father Tachments had done their absolute best to raise their three children to live life with gusto. Sadly, their efforts did not seem to pay off with all of their offspring. Their oldest son,...

Acceptance Does Not Mean Approval

How are you doing with the “Stay at Home” orders (if your area is requiring that)? So many of us long for more time at home. Yet when the situation is thrust upon us, we may complain … or protest. True, the quarancations many of us are experiencing are...

Looking For A Little Alone Time?

Ready to get away? Fascination of a quarancation worn off? Perhaps. Probably? As much as we love our family, spouses, or significant others a little separation time is a good thing. My husbands can stand me just about half of the time. I can be a lot of work....

What Is Your Intention?

How many times have you heard or read something about the full moon? April’s full moon, the Pink Moon, was closer to the earth in its orbit than any other time this year. Of course, She got a tremendous amount of publicity on that! What is often overlooked are...

Are you ready to be done with COVID-19 and get on with your life? You’re not alone. Just about everyone we talk to has a story of how it’s disrupted their life. Often these stories are tragic. While we could ponder all the reasons why first world nations seem...

Why Are We Out of Control?

Are you completely, blissfully, and spiritually centered every second of every day? Few people are. In the midst of COVID-19 a sense of helplessness can come over us. Many of our normal, daily activities are not recommended, or in some case not permitted. For the person who is scheduled...

My First Tech Shabbat

Earlier this week I took my first “tech shabbat.” Thi is a day of rest (sabbath) from all informational technology. What that means is no cell phones, no tablets, no computer or laptop activity, and no TV (including Netflix). Yeah – I know – I just felt you shudder,...

Is COVID-19 the Reason For the Way We Feel?

Do you know why most of us are feeling off, angry, scared, depressed, anxious, or have any other number of emotions we don’t want? Why do some people look like they feel better than ever? What’s the difference? What got me thinking about this today was reading about some...
