Sunday Morning Raw Reset

Do you have reset day? How about a reset date? Truth be told, we are all time travelers and seasonal creatures. Back to school signals something to us as does the start of a new year or the beginning of another week.

Do you think of the arrival of spring as an inhale or an exhale?

Come out and Play

There’s a new term popping up in the world. It’s playborhood and you don’t have to contemplate it long to understand it’s roots. The notion is that by creating walkable urban spaces, people stay healthier. They interact with each other more often. They move. Perhaps, they are even inclined towards greater civic engagement. And yes, they are playful.IMG_7261 (more…)

Conquering Cold Season

I said the words too quickly and too confidently, “I haven’t had a cold in years.” Thinking back, it may have been six or seven years ago and then, after a weekend that allowed too little sleep, I woke with an angry scratch in the back of my throat. I don’t want to be sick, don’t have time to be sick and frankly am a bit peeved about it. I know that my immune system is diminished without ample sleep and here I am.

The Farro-est of All

When I refer to something as vulgar, it’s highly likely that your mind drifts instantly to that which is tasteless or more likely, something indecent. However, if I was?using it as an adjective for?Latin, then I would be using a generic term to describe a non-standard version of Latin rather than the classical form.

Putting Down Roots

Last week I did an exercise in transparency with my work team. Part of it required that we select a picture?from a stack of stock photos that would be an appropriate cover for each of our autobiographies. I selected a photo of five smiling individuals in a white water raft envisioning the story that I would write about my own family and the adventure that we call life. One of my colleagues selected a photo of roots and I was touched by his description of his efforts to leave a legacy and to establish?roots that would matter and that would last. He spoke of both his family and his community in a way that was passionate and authentic.

After the Shrove

The word “shrove” is not used often in our home. Ever? It is the past tense of “shrive” which is a religious word meaning to hear a confession, assign penance and be absolved from sin.

Chilling Out

With the exception of a couple of holiday parties and a football game, our calendar has been void of activity for the past two weeks. We’ve slept in, gone for walks, seen a movie, made some nice meals and caught up on odds and ends. Whether you refer to it as down time, chilling out, R&R or simply recess, this lack of activity holds a lot of promise as a way to recharge. Want to amp it up even further? Go offline.
