In the cascading desire of new love, my now husband and I were on a quest to “do it” as many times as possible in the shortest period of time. Craving, anticipating each meeting between us, I believed he could, would happily perform on demand. This idea o

How good of a receiver are you? One of life's gifts is the pleasure senses of the body. But what do you do with these gifts? Have you ever made the connection between being a good receiver and experiencing  the Divine Union taught in the Kama Sutra? Mo

Sure you know about sex. But have you ever really asked, “What is sex for?” Pleasure (or potential pleasure) might be the obvious answer. Procreation might be another. But if you sit with this question a bit longer, you’ll notice there's more to sex than

  On The Verge— I don’t know what life is like NOT being on the verge. On the verge is my home. Comfortably uncomfortable. I can’t say at what point I realized that anything worthwhile would require me being on the verge. On the verge of crazy, on the ver

I think about the brave things women do, from not faking an orgasm to trying to work and raise children. I think about the day-in, day-out, mind-numbing tasks we perform and how happy and content women can be regardless of how numb the mind becomes at ti

  We use words so freely, we forget they are a reflection of our state of being. If only every word could come from our most holy self. If only we knew their power. If only we saw the blessings or curses they become as they roll off our tongues. Like s

I've particapated in silent retreats. I ready myself for them, remind myself of the natural urges to speak I have to be mindful of. In the end, I am forever learning about the noise in my own head and the constant stream of thinking.   This months theme--

  Unlearning—this is the major premise of every spiritual and religious path. And most of what we need to do to be happy and balanced and live an authentic life requires unlearning what society taught us. Society, in general, is crazy. You are not

Editorial note: I decided to tackle this month's theme, Healing Between Genders, from a few viewpoints: marriage, general social and of course, spiritual. In a dying relationship, I know I'll always see two things: apathy and lack of respect. I call them L

  Would you consider writing if your only goal was to place the finished work in a drawer when the writing is complete? A chiropractor friend recently lamented, “No matter how good I am at being a chiropractor, I still need to market my services.” I w

  I’m thinking about different kinds mothers. Gil lost her daughter Morgan about 18 months ago. Morgan was murdered—and most likely, brutally raped before she was murdered. Her murderer dumped her body in a farmer’s field in Virginia. I can only imagine

"I've done my job well if you don't need me any more."  That's the goal of all teachers, and of course, all mothers are teachers. I don't think it's in our gene's to stop needing our mothers. Maybe that should be stop wanting our mothers? My mom died almo

  If you’ll pardon my chutzpah, I'm willing to bet that the way you think of success is a lot like stepping on a garden hose and still expecting water to flow. Do this one thing. Then, if your eyes don’t pop with a new understanding, stop reading. Write

Oh, Sugar! I need help!!!!!! The last ten percent is not all giggles! You know that water episode my laptop had a while back? Well, I got to know the guys at the Apple store by first name. And, of course, because I was nice, they remember me.

    I know this month is supposed to be devoted to humor, but given the seriousness of the crime I thought everyone should be on the lookout for this thief.   Apparently, he steals candy from babies and tries to get their moms to take it back. Remember

  Well, Girlie! So far so good! Operation peahen, 90% complete. :-) Last 10% should be all giggles!   I had Zack throw their food inside the doggie carrier. They ran in—first logistic hurdle jumped, easy peasy! I was really worried the farmer wouldn

  Hi Peaches! We’re having LOVELY weather here. Makes me feel human again! How was your weekend? Are you getting some relief from the heat? Ooh, I hope so. The balloon festival was interesting. Beautiful at times. Way too hot at others. You’ll giggle

I believe in goodness, even when I can't see it--especially when I can't see it. I believe I live in a kind, loving Universe, that is for me, even when I don't see it. I believe the Universe presents me with opporunities not tests. I believe in saying 'wh

Last July I hit a bump in the freeway of life. My mammogram revealed lumps, small but needing a biopsy. Test conclusions: I needed to have two lumps removed, one from each breast.  The surgeon said, “Wow you are lucky, easy to get to the lumps and no signs

  Brian had slammed the front door with such force on his way out, it bounced back open. Deb, overcome by the tidal wave of his ignorance, fell against the perpetual pile of stuff in the dining room. “Where are you going? Brian! Don’t leave! Brian! Brian!

  Every morning, I’d been waking to the beauty of spring unfolding. Cherry blossoms, orange blossoms, and the songbird symphony. Smiles from my son, his natural joy sprinkled life as we moved through our day. Deb woke to a house shuttered against the ligh
