Holy Wholesome Health Habits

March 23, 2010

“Well-ness” is not merely the lack of “dis-ease”, illness, or injury. Rather than avoiding what is not desired (and measuring what we want as an absence of what we seek to be “free” of), it would be better to focus on (doing what it takes for) being healthy, well, and at ease. (more…)


Relationship Status

February 18, 2010

People’s primary relationship will, by default, always be with themselves – but most status options on forms and websites do not include or care about variations in “quality” or experience – merely the structure. To be “in” a relationship (or marriage) does not really say much about the relationship itself. (more…)


Health, Happiness, and Whole Lot of Other Things Are Interrelated.

January 18, 2010

Health, happiness, and a whole lot of other things are interrelated – in more ways than many people may realize. Happy people tend to be healthier. Healthy people tend to be happier. Happy healthy people tend to have better lives. Health and happiness are mainly a choice – coming from within (reflecting and expressing what we most often choose to think, feel, and do). (more…)


Craving Satisfaction

December 29, 2009

We are what we eat – and assimilate. Sometimes what we DON’T eat (enough of), eats (away at) us.

Although what, when, and how much may vary considerably, food and eating are essential for life. Our relationship to food is among our most important – and affects most of our others. (more…)


All My Relations

December 10, 2008

Everything in life is a “relationship” of one kind or another. The kind of relationship(s) people often seem most interested in reading, writing, talking, thinking, and (day)dreaming about, whether they “have” one or not) tends to be “romantic” in nature. But there are MANY other relationships of significance to consider, develop, and nurture (or, at the very least, not neglect) – that affect any “romantic” relationship (with our “significant others”).

Lamb, Meat, Milk, Honey, and Dates

May 20, 2016

Mary had a little lamb, whom she called “Jesus” and the “Lamb of God”.

What sex was “assigned” at birth or identified with at death is not known – but Mary’s lamb begat many of his or her own. Today, there are more than 200 different breeds of sheep – and in places like New Zealand, sheep outnumber humans by a ratio of 6:1 (which is much less than in the past when it was 22:1).

Mother Mary came to her lamb, speaking words of wisdom saying, “Let it be”. And Mary and her lamb said, “let there be lite” – and there was “Lamb Lite”. And it was good. Delicious, actually. Most animals eaten by humans are male.

A castrated male sheep is called a wether – whether or not the “weather outside is frightening”. Perhaps to compensate for missing “balls” (that no longer “tingle”), wethers are often made to wear (noisy) bells (that do not jingle) – to help keep track of their whereabouts along with whoever may be with them. Female black sheep are used for the same reason.

“The Lord is my Shepherd”? The Biblical Abraham, Moses, David, and many others were also shepherds. Christians believe they are saved through (the sacrifice of) the blood of the “lamb”. Jews believe their firstborn children were saved (in Egypt from the Angel of Death) through the presence of lambs’ blood on their doors. Abraham’s (firstborn) son (Ishmael, according to Muslims – or Isaac, according to Jews) was saved from “sacrifice” through the appearance and substitution of a ram. Cats are reputed to have nine lives. “Ram” is believed by Hindus to have had at least seven (incarnations). Carnations may be flowers but “incarnation” means to become “flesh”. Animal flesh is “meat”. (more…)


Why people pay for dance lessons

April 2, 2015

Why do people PAY for dance lessons – not only financially, but also with their time, energy, and attention – devoting much money and many hours for years of their lives learning and practicing “how to dance” (on their own and with others, watching, imitating, and taking private lessons and group classes)?

There are many factors to consider regarding the desire for dance lessons – including, in increasing importance: (financial) “affordability”; (geographic and time) availability; “quality” (of teaching and facilities); compatibility (with the instructor, other students, and “philosophy” or “style” being taught); and, most of all, YOUR (“real”) reason and/or motivation for wanting dance lessons.

Get More Bang For Your Bones

Humans are the ONLY species on our planet known to develop osteoporosis (porous bones). Osteoporosis (like many other “degenerative diseases”) is more common in the United States of America than in any other country. Lack of calcium is NOT the cause; (more…)


Shoes to Turn On and/or Turn Around

Many women like (or think they have) to wear high heels – to look good or to dance (better). (more…)


Our Greatest Wealth?

October 3, 2012

Our greatest wealth is not our health but our relationships. None of us can be an island. We are all connected and interdependent. It is not good for us to be alone, isolated, and disconnected – nor can we healthily do so for long. (more…)


Dance As If No One was Watching

November 29, 2011

Social dancing is not the same as social performing. Many social “partner” dance classes seem to emphasize patterns, footwork, and “styling” – as if they are what matters most. NONE of these are what really make a COUPLE look and feel good TOGETHER on the dance floor. What all too often is overlooked and omitted, in my opinion, is that dancing is a relationship – and mainly about connection with the music, self, and partner(s). (more…)

Trust Your Gut!

September 9, 2011

Most people probably don’t think of their intestines as being all that important, let alone “intelligent”, but they are (both). In fact, our intestines are often even MORE intuitive, insightful, informative, and influential than than either the heart or brain. (more…)

Needs – of men (by women)
