Picky Is A Practice

I opened up my blog reader today to check out the Monday morning articles from my subscription list. Among them, 40 Ways To Live A Full Life.  I’ve written about these clutter crap articles before. I say again unto you, pick one, not 40. Read one, not the whole 40. I say again unto bloggers,…

Wellness Today–Whisper and Wail

Here we are. A month of my new job has passed. I’m still not finding more than one time per week to get a post published. That’s perfectly okay. No pushing. No resisting. Let it be. Let it flow. I make myself little notes throughout the week; ideas, thoughts, seeds that may sprout into full…

Wellness Today–The Shameless Subtleties

I write about the large movements, the sweeping gestures, the overarching practices. But then there are the more subtle practices.

Expression or tone of…

A Combo Meal–All Nuggets

Wellness Today–Extra Ketchup

Peaco and I are still so far behind that I can’t remember which prompt was supposed to apply to which day. We are clearly working them out of order. We warned you when we started this thing that we probably wouldn’t follow the rules. July 9th: Write a story that starts with a character following…

Wellness Today–The Animals Have One Less Menace

Check it out — blogging two days in a row. I just finished watching the documentary What The Health. I found it on Netflix but there do seem to be some other viewing options at the main film site. I couldn’t, in good conscience, call myself a wellness enthusiast and not watch it. After watching…
