Parade magazine’s  feature article Sunday was ‘FEARS 2015’.  It  put how we react to media hype in perspective.  How our brains and our bodies deal with fear and chronic stress.  It is well done.  To read the entire article go to www.parade.com.   The following is from a box insert within the body content:

Some food for thought.


” I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.  I am free, no matter what rules surround me.  If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them;  if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.  I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”

~Robert A. Heinlein

A good week to appreciate and relish our freedoms.


“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.  Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.  Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.  And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

~Steve Jobs

Seasons 2015

“We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming.  We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are.  They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse.  But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.”

~Gary Zukav

New Year 2015

“New Years Day.  A fresh start.  A new chapter in life waiting to be written.  New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved.  Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and discovery.  Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand.  Only dreams give birth to change.”

~Sarah Ban Breathnach,  Author of Simple Pleasures: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy.

Christmas 2014

“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”

~Charles Dickens

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!


“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

~Vivian Greene

The rain has come to drought-parched California.  So many are so grateful; so many are  dealing with the aftermath of flooding.  Lest we get too far ahead of ourselves, the statistical evidence is that it would take three years of this kind of weather to end the drought.

Although we are inundated by the rain, it is vital that we continue our water-wise practices.


“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible.”

~Winston Churchill


“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson


“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Wishing you all a peaceful and blessed day!
