"Sometimes, when it is all, finally, too much, I climb into my car, roll the windows up, and somewhere between backing out the driveway and rounding the next corner, I let out a yell that would topple Manhattan. How do you pray?" by Margaret L. Mitchell, as quoted in The Feminine Face of God, p. 124.

My friend Cindy Greb posted this on her Facebook page and I knew I had to respond since it spoke so vividly to the ways I blow off steam AND pray. My response to her was: "Sometimes a good aaaarrrggghhhh is as potent and healing as a good o0o0o00o0o0mmmmm (: I pray every which way imaginable, depending on what state of mind I am in the moment. ♥”

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” Henry Ford 

Networking can be wildly successful or painfully ineffective… and it all depends on your frame of mind and approach going into it.

I bet that title got your attention.

Perhaps you are quite shocked and wondering if I used to be a stripper in my early days. Sorry to disappoint you, but I am speaking in metaphors. By the way, if any of the guys out there were disappointed by that metaphor part – I’ll send you a little wink for even thinking this 53-year old gal still has it going on.

I've written before about being organized in your workplace from a time management standpoint.  But have you ever thought of the environment you work in as a representation of energy? Whether you understand the Law of Attraction or have never heard of it, consider this.

Though this is not one of the customary topics of this blog, it is something that speaks to me today, and therefore I would like to speak to you of it.  This column is ordinarily about those things that “All Make Sense to Me”, and not about that which doesn’t.  Nevertheless,  I am having difficulty moving onto the “sense” of things again, until after addressing the “senselessness” of the past week.

Life has a tendency to be confusing. Just about when you think you have it all figured out, someone changes the ground rules. What if I told you there was a magical instruction booklet to your life? Well there is, and it comes in the form of your own Personal Numerology Chart.

Getting in touch with your intuition is increasingly important these days for reducing stress from information overload.
  • Should you look at your Facebook feed tonight?
  • Which movie in your huge "to watch" list online do you view?
  • Which book in your increasing "to read" digital list do you read?
  • How about which websites, emails, classes or online groups should you visit, read, attend or join?

Confucius said, “When you meet a noble person, emulate them. When you meet an evil person, look within.” But why? Because you only ever do unto others what you’ve done to yourself already. Conversely, you do to yourself what you’ve done to others. Both are equally true, as well as equally telling.

"There's nothing we can't turn into prayer if that is our intention." were among the first words spoken by photographer Catherine Jansen at Circle of Miracles, an interfaith community of which I have been part for nearly 11 years. Admitting to a "love affair with India" that has lasted 30 years, Philly area (by way of Atlanta, Georgia) mother of two who was raised in the Greek Orthodox Church, became fascinated with the country during her initial stay in an ashram where she mostly "saw the insides of my eyelids" in meditation. Since then, she has visited multiple times, each time, bringing back with her, sweet memories of the people she encountered and thousands of photographs that catalog her experiences for posterity and the appreciation of those who view them.
