Earthing is actually a term, did you know that? In short, it means walking around barefoot in order to soak up all the good things that the Earth has to offer. Benefits being stress release and better sleep, among others. As someone who walks around barefoot perpetually in the warm months (hello, dirty feet) I’ll… Continue reading Walk the Earth
Winter has it’s own beauty for sure, but my soul craves flowers and vivid colors during this season of white and gray to keep me balanced. All white doesn’t work for this girl. The artist and color-craver in me starts to twitch. To satisfy and keep me thriving until Spring, fresh flowers are on deck… Continue reading I’ll take Color for $500, Alex
“Do one thing each day that scares you”, said the indomitable Eleanor Roosevelt. This has been my quote-of-the-week this week, for recently, a (great) opportunity presented itself and it does, indeed, scare me. Being a quotes-gal, this one immediately jumped to mind and then I got thinking about it….this is my time to really live… Continue reading When a Kiwi is not just a Kiwi
As we are wildly aware, the Northeast has been pummeled with snow this season. Actually, not even “this season”, but merely the last month. Mountains of snow and ice, the national guard crawling all over New England helping clear streets, roofs piled high with heavy flakes. What a mess. And the unnamed ingredient to this… Continue reading With A Flash and a Clap
“In June as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.” -Aldo Leopold I love the idea of flowers’ arrivals being anniversaries. Year after year…you would think that ONE year something would happen and nothing would… Continue reading Thar She Blooms!
(Note-I apologize for the wonky type on my website…I have to figure out a few settings and, at the moment, they are leaving me stumped. Damn technology). I’m a ripper and pinner. Are these new 21-century afflictions that pharm-companies are trying to come up with high-priced drugs for? I wish there were vaccines for these. The… Continue reading Salt and Distractions
I am in the throes of blogger’s block right now. I just haven’t been feeling the inspiration lately. Is it the weather? Winter sure-as-heck doesn’t want to seem to clear the way for Spring and I’m simply tired of being cold (realizing fully that I will regret that last statement come July). Those proud, swooping… Continue reading Stalled
Sometimes, a walk in the woods is just what you need to clear the winter’s cobwebs… “Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountains and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”-John Lubbock I half expected the Lorax to pop out… Continue reading I Went to the Woods
Y. The 25th letter of the alphabet. AND the reason for science, essentially. I never really thought about it that way or that simply. Science boggles me. I’ve said this before. And yes, I will admit that, at the ripe old age of 43, I can not recite the correct order of the planets and… Continue reading Y. Because.
The past few weeks have been a study in time. It began by visiting a convalescent home where an elder family member is recovering from a fractured pelvis (dang icy sidewalks!). In this rehab unit, the folks are primarily senior citizens, but as we all know, that group varies wildly. Some are spry and merely… Continue reading Old, New and Now
