A few weeks ago I went to a past life regression event with some old Gymboree friends. It was an interesting night. As a Catholic, I am not supposed to believe in anything mystical or other life-ly. We die and go to Heaven. That’s that. It’s what I teach my religion students and my kids. [...]

Big Girl inherited many of my positive traits, but just as many of the negative ones. One such trait is the inability to let others help her. She seems to want to carry the world on her slim little shoulders. Another that goes hand-in-hand with the first: Projection. She is always thinking those what ifs. [...]

Yes, there is a caterwauling, crying cat in our crawlspace (talk about alliteration!), but that’s not what this blog is about. It’s about my increasing interest in intuition.

We’ve had some wacky stuff going on over here for about six months now. My husband’s health issue is the most pressing, of course, but there are other little annoyances, too. The capper came on Monday when I found out about something disturbing going on with a professional group I belong to. There was just [...]

Last August my husband started having medical issues. Intestinal issues. Sort of. He’s had three operations so far. The last one didn’t work, so he will be having his fourth operation soon. It’s been hard on all of us, although, to quote his doctor, “This is something that’s more a pain in the ass than [...]

Did you know your tongue is directly connected to your feet? I didn’t, either. This past Saturday I took an amazing class at Little Yoga House. The Anatomy of Breathing. It was taught by Leslie Kaminoff of The Breathing Project. Leslie, who co-authored Yoga Anatomy, was on Long Island for a Long Island Yoga Association [...]

I was just browsing the New York Times online and came across a recent Really? column about sleep. (BTW: My story about neti pots pre-dated the one on the NYT’s Web site by three days. Sigh.) The gist of the story: People who sleep more are less likely to get colds. But, according to my [...]
