Kayaking! Well, that was the answer for me. I love it when a hobby teaches you more than you expected. I knew kayaking was good for my body and my mind, but I’m finding it’s also good for teaching me more life lessons. This time, the lesson is all about balance. Here’s how kayaking has […]

Technology – love it or hate it?

February 6, 2013


I personally have a love/hate relationship with technology. I love technology because: I’ve met some amazing people, who I wouldn’t have met otherwise. A special shout out to Bindu, Tony and Susan! I can workout where ever I want. Since I’ve been spending a lot of time over at my Mom’s, it’s wonderful that all […]

Find the wonder and change your life

January 26, 2012


A few days ago, I was pulling out of my garage. I was cranky and stressed, thinking about all the errands I had to do and wondering if I could finish them all in time. I also had to go over and shovel my Mom’s driveway and I was dreading that since I just shoveled […]

September 28, 2011

Are you afraid to turn off your cell phone?

June 9, 2011


Really – what will happen if you disconnect from technology? Will the world come to an end? Will your clients disappear? I think not. I am so disgusted by all the people who have their phones attached to their ears, having mindless conversations. I have yet to overhear an important conversation. Why do people have […]

Slow and steady beats fast and furious every time

May 18, 2011


I’ll be the first to admit that I do things at hyperspeed, whether it’s walking or reading or writing. This is not always a good thing and I was reminded of this during my last hike. Normally when we hike at Blue Hills, we do the most difficult trails that are rocky and steep. Talk […]
