Self Awareness

By Liz Sterling

In many of the wisdom teachings, the mind is the culprit for unhappiness. Buddha said, “The mind is everything.

Are You Ready to Take off Your Mask?

As I was checking out of a grocery store, I asked the clerk if she was looking forward to removing her mask when our state releases its mask requirement soon. “I’ve kind of gotten used to it,” she replied. “I might keep wearing it even after I don’t have to.”

By Mark Tudino

Hi. Time to enter our Wayback Machine and set the dials for December 22, 2003. It’s a Monday night, and the Green Bay Packers are in Oakland to play the Raiders.

Life in My Closet

By Jonna Shutowick. M.S. Ed.

I’ve always fondly referred to my closet as my “Room of My Own,” and my copy of Virginia Woolf’s book is front and center on one of the shelves. My closet is full of my creative endeavors. Paintings on the walls, journals upon journals of songs and poetry, and even about a hundred pairs of rose-colored glasses that I bought on a whim on my 40th birthday when I had dreams of starting RoseyShades, the “attitude accessory” company. It’s my Dream Cave.

For more than a year, working from home and keeping social circles small due to COVID-19 has meant people have been able to spend more time with their pets.
