Thoughts on Health… A Poem That Wrote Itself

a close up on my All Is Well original painting Welcome back from the holidays!!!! This Monday I was planning on doing a FAQ about Homeschooling… until I woke up this morning with a poem half out of my head and the other half wiggling out. I didn’t want to forget a word of it, so I grabbed a dull pencil from my nightstand and wrote the words down in the margins of the closest book I could find. I’m walking a very raw path right now… transforming and still in the creative process of merging my old life (analytical, …

Thoughts on Health… Positive thinking and a Dream Revelation

I was told recently that life was *easy* for me because I was a positive thinker. I almost fainted… and laughed. I am so far from a natural positive thinker it’s not even funny, so I didn’t laugh. I was extremely pessimistic and worried as a child. Through lots of diligent work I *literally* am not even the same person that I was years ago.   But I didn’t change this by “positive thinking” — that’s for sure!     I don’t even like the idea of *positive thinking* at all. Because positive thinking is usually fake… something you try …

Thoughts On Health…. Thyroid

“When you take charge of your life, there is no longer need to ask permission of other people or society at large.” -Albert F. Geoffrey Our thyroids do so much for us. The thyroid is one of the main centers of control in our body… we have so many parts that help coordinate and regulate our organism as a whole… the brain, the heart, the pineal gland, the thyroid… all of these organs work for our entire body… maintaining the health of our body as a complete organism. Unlike the big toe, who is maintaining health for itself, the big …

Thoughts On Health… Death and Dying… revisited.

First, let me say that I really miss the health collage series. I have a collage of the thyroid to share with you, but my (step) grandfather died last week and I have decided to push back the thyroid collage until next Monday. This past week, I’ve been thinking a lot about death and dying, and watching my loved ones grieve. I think I’ve been extremely lucky to have two fabulous role models in my family for death and dying… both my grandmother Grams and my grandfather Cass transitioned quite quickly once death became inevitable. I really admire them for …

Thoughts on Health… why I’d take friendship over medical advice any day!

I was at the beach with two friends of mine, enjoying the late summer sun and playing in the waves with the kids. Unfortunately, I was also battling some horrible neck tenderness and muscle pain… I blog about that here. On this day in particular, the base of my skull hurt so badly I was having trouble just sitting up straight, talking, carrying on a normal conversation. Certainly wearing my hair back off my face in the sticky salty ocean breeze was unthinkable, the pain was too severe. My two friends were so amazingly kind and generous… with their empathy …

Music and Our Souls

    I was having a great conversation with my children over the weekend, and I had a wonderful thought. Okay, it might be a bit of a stretch, but I love the feeling I get when I think about it. And usually, if it makes me feel good, I can trust it. So, I think there may be some truth to this idea.     We were talking about how amazing and wonderful music is. And how much it lifts us throughout our day… singing a song while we wash our hands, humming a tune while we take a …
