Howl-Worthy

Rising in the northeast about 7:00 pm tonight will be the first full moon of 2022. It was dubbed the Wolf Moon by Native Americans and early colonists because this was the time of the year that wolves howled the most. Originally thought to be a cry of hunger, biologists now say it is more…

Handiwork

Little hands can fill a day, Hands to wipe, hands to play. Older hands that open wide Worn and steady, there to guide. Little hands have much to say. You I trust. Stay by my side. Hellos, goodbyes and all between Hands that shield the unforeseen. Hands that say hold me tight. Never let me…

Positivity: Our Own Touchscreen

Note: My previous posts reflected a theme of positivity. Carrying it forward, it is worth another look at neuroplasticity, or our ability to use our minds to change our brain, passing on positive genes for the generations to come. In a very real sense, our minds were created to spawn the seeds of transformation, overcoming…

Eyrie: High Places

Friends are angels who lift us up to our feet when our own wings have trouble remembering how to fly. —–Oprah Wings to Fly Walk with me along the path, And reach up toward the sky. I’ll be right beside you, Through each new thing you try. And anytime you’re ready, I’ll give you wings…

A Time for Every Purpose . . .

Nearing the end of our quarantine after being down with COVID, it will be good to return to the time of embracing. It was a time to receive the support of friends. We prefer being the giver, not the receiver. But time, nevertheless, dictated another purpose. Sometimes our purpose is to Merely be who we…

Toward the Highest Positives

I set my star so high that I would constantly be in motion toward it. ——-Sidney Poitier I have learned that I must find positive outlets for anger, its flame burns because the world is so unjust. I have to try to find a way to channel that anger to the positive, and the highest…
