    Meditating

    Meditating Last May I listened to a lecture on meditation by Nina Fry-Kizler. It was one of the free Friday lectures given by the Institute of Noetic Science (IONS). Fry-Kizler talked about how not all types of meditation suit all people. She walked us through three types of meditation – mindfulness, focused, and movement. Not all meditation involves sitting quietly with your eyes closed. I found the Movement Meditation interesting and invigorating. Nina’s talk got me thinking about meditation in… Read more »

      Entangled Life How Fungi make our worlds, change our minds, and shape our futures   By Merlin Sheldrake | Published by Random House Trade Paperbacks (April 13, 2021) I have always been fascinated by mushrooms.

  • purple and gold pansies

    Hello Spring!

    Well, spring has finally arrived. Everywhere I look I see crocuses and daffodils showing their full spring beauty. I planted pansies in one of my planters and then, when I thought the night would be too cold for them, I brought them in. I did not need too. They are very hardy and the ones I planted at my son’s house did not freeze. I also planted pea seeds. I checked this morning; they are not yet up. Only one… Read more »

  • New Beginnings — Spring

    Well, the days are getting longer and warmer, so spring must be coming. Like many of you, I feel spring as a real relief from sheltering inside my home. It feels good to be outdoors. Last week on my walk, I saw the first daffodils poking through the earth. I took a photo of them today and they had grown about three times as big. With the trees, plants, and flowers turning green, I have begun to think about what… Read more »

    Take a fresh breath; and now jump into an ice bath

    Wim Hof It was through my daughter, Tanya, that I first learned about Wim Hof. She suggested I listen to his podcast. I did and became intrigued. The Iceman Known as the “Iceman,” Wim Hof has done many way-out things in the cold: he climbed Kilimanjaro twice in a pair of shorts, ran a marathon north of the Arctic Circle in shorts, swam under a frozen lake in shorts (ok, probably a bathing suit), and he takes frequent ice baths.… Read more »

    on Life. Death. Acceptance.

    My December 2020 Message Hello and welcome to the last month of 2020. What an amazing year of change it has been. In last month’s message I touched on how uncomfortable uncertainty makes us feel. Let’s face it, 2020 has been unnerving at its best of times. Life, as we knew it, has changed. The increasing number of people affected by or dying from COVID-19 worldwide got me to thinking about our medical systems and how we approach death in… Read more »
