The Latest

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.

A dream is a poem the body writes. Even if we lie to ourselves in the day, the body is compelled to speak its truth at night.

Cat Behavior:   The “Butt Wiggle of Doom” is performed by cats when they are about to pounce.  Like a baseball player digging in his/her cleats before stealing a base, the cat is digging in its rear claws for maximum grip before leaping.

One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way.
