The World Is Mud-Luscious And Puddle-Wonderful

That’s a quote from e.e. cummings, and it’s true about our weather now.  Yesterday, we barely made it up the hill and it’s supposed to start to rain….more. My car will make you smile.  Take a look.

Beautiful, don't you think?

My car used to be all shiny when I lived in Southern California. No more. I’m thinking mud facials, mud baths, mud parties… And if it’s not the mud this winter, it’s the wind and the snow — the most snow in 10 years — and the biting cold, the unusual temperatures for Asheville — it’s the coldest it has been in 30 years. Wow — I moved here from sunny California just in time to enjoy it all. As I write now, the winds are high, and the gusts are heaving huge rows of leafless trees to the left…..pause and re-group… and then to the left again.  The wind is whistling. It’s quite the winnie the pooh kind of blustery day! It reminds us all, in case we should possibly forget, that Mother Nature is always in charge. This is the daily reminder that I wanted from her.  This is why I moved to the mountains.

Friday Love: Bam! Gate Breaking, Anyone?

Good Friday, Everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a story about how I accidentally accomplished something on my bucket list. I ran through an exit gate while looking the other way. The hood of my car is scratched up, and one windshield wiper is a mess, but let’s have a good laugh about how we never expect what “getting what we want” includes!

Let me know if you relate…

Enough with the Name-Calling

It seems to be a growing fad these days to call someone a narcissist, or declare they are toxic.
Political name-calling is similar—we assign politicians and voters to categories, and brush them off as if they are unintelligent, inferior, or even worthless.
By labeling others, we miss their humanity. We gloss over their struggle, their best effort at dealing with life. We dismiss them.
We do to them what we believe they are doing to others.
Look past a label, and in the soft light of day, there stands a person like you or like me, coping as best they can. At the end of the day, no friend, parent, or lover making conscious choices intends to be mean, or to ignore, or to embellish. There is always more to the story.
If we label others, then for sure we label ourselves. We trap ourselves into believing we are less than. Or not enough. Or we don’t give ourselves the time and forgiveness to work through our “stuff.” Maybe, if we stopped accusing others of narcissism, we could forgive ourselves for those moments when we were narrow-minded, inconsiderate, or afraid.
When it comes to labels, nobody wins.
So, my dear people, I suggest we peer a little deeper into ourselves to investigate a need to separate ourselves from others by tacking them with a label filled with disdain or scorn.
It is my wish that you view this video and take it to heart.
Much love,
