Check Out The New Suits On These Muffins

This, my friends, is a hallelujah moment in food labeling. Not because it’s vegan but because it says it’s vegan. What’s the difference? And why is the difference a big deal? TIME. Life and time, folks.  Time of life, folks. Many food manufacturers prefer not to label food as vegan even if it happens to…

Yoga On The Sneak

Two yoga posts in the same week? What’s this? When my yoga business was active I called it Yoga For The Road. I always told my students yoga doesn’t live on your yoga mat or in the studio. In its full expression as a lifestyle yoga moves with you through daily life. Yoga is more…

Post-Election Practice

  Good morning, America. I hope you have cause to celebrate something today. As for me, I lost every race in my state. Every single one. So I am turning to my yoga mat. I will soothe with practice. I joke sometimes that my personal holy trinity is writing, running, and yoga. I ran last…

Dood, New Holiday (Sweeet)

This is what happens to Samhain candles when the weather is scarier than the Spirits so they all just hunker down in your dining room for the night. Not shown are the bananas. I always leave bananas out for the visiting Spirits on Samhain. Think about it. After a long trip through the veil between…

Samhain Synergy

This is not mine. I found it online while nosing around for something else. I haven’t been able to identify a source for credit so I will do the minimum and disclaim any credit of my own. Other than credit for identifying it as good material for the Yep Files. The veil is thin. Make…

October Work Release–Early And Late

Since Thursday I have written on my plan of the day, “Try to write something today.” I did try but I didn’t succeed. Now I’m rolling up on the end of the month and facing the dilemma of just a weekly post or using the time to get a good Work Release published. It would…

The Gratitude Vote

Vote.  Vote.  Vote. I can’t say it enough. Early voting opened today in Mercyburg. There are 36 other states (and D.C.) which offer early voting. Do it early if you can. Do it absentee if you must. But please do it.  Please vote. Especially if you are a Woman. Double-especially if you are a Woman…

Wellness Today–Tent Of Content

Friday has come and I haven’t written a thing all week. How did that happen? Contentment, that’s how. You heard me. Not busy.  Content. You’ve heard of contentment, right? Do you remember contentment? Or have you never been content? I’ll bet you’re read a bajillion articles about it though. About how to be content. I…

Mercy Burgers Are Made Of People, Not Plants

Finally, yesterday, the heat broke in Mercyburg. Suddenly I can’t remember if I have been spelling it Mercyberg or Mercyburg. I also suddenly realized giving my realm such a name would make me a Mercyburger. That’s just damn funny, aside from the fact that Mercy Burger sounds like some kind of edible vegan patty. Or…

Wellness Today–Ornitho Realty

Extra early mornings this week. And last week. The Chef was offered a new job. He wants to finish up all his outstanding projects before he leaves the old one. Mornings begin with the number four to keep him from working late. Those folks who can just roll over and go back to sleep after…

Wellness Today — The Bell Tolls For Me

Checking in. I am still here and all is well. I’ve been working on a special writing project. I am only quiet here because I’m devoting my energy to writing for a speaking engagement. I want it all written well before I attempt to speak it well. I feel like I never say anything as…

September Work Release–The Sept Embers

Well folks, I worked on this post all month. I typically add content to these end-of-month posts a little at a time and then finalize during the last week. For the past three days I’ve been intensively editing and polishing and adding the finishing touches. I saved my work multiple times. Backed it up. Scheduled…
