Laughing Now

I’ve decided to add a new category to my blog. I really wanted to call it “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to My Life,” but it takes up a lot of space. I think I’ll shorten it to Laughing Now and see how it goes. The whole concept started a couple of years ago. I remember that something really strange happened and I was very upset at the time. As the Divine would have it, I heard myself saying, “I’ll laugh about this later.” The next thought through …

Clear and Supported

I am human. I get emotional, irrational, irritable, make mistakes, and get overwhelmed, just like everyone else. “BUT, YOU’RE A LIFE COACH!” is a common response to my less-than-stellar moments.

As I stepped away from the Crape Myrtle tree I had been admiring, caressing and talking to this morning, a conversation with a friend came back to me. “Well, you’re Pagan,” she said to me in the most complimentary of tones. “No, I’m not,” I replied, “I don’t know the words to any of the songs.” We both laughed out loud, and then she informed me it wasn’t about the songs. I continued to insist that I could not possibly be Pagan unless I knew the words. “You talk to …
