I'm writing this from Berkeley, California. A place where I lived about 30 years ago. I was here in October of 1996. And again in 2007. And now.
Some things are exactly the same--to the point where it's rather scary. Some things (myself in... Read more

In addition to listening to IOWL podcasts (Renee Stephens) on a regular basis, I've been going through her book, Full-Filled, as part of an online class. This week, part of the homework was to listen to a guided journey on forgiveness. Collectin... Read more
What an amazing weekend that was. Music, music, music....
This is my major renewal weekend of the year. Even though I don't sleep enough (and I'm really feeling it now, and it's the next weekend!!!!), it is the time when my current self and... Read more

I didn't stop altogether--but I pulled back, putting in the minimum.
At first it was unc... Read more
I need to be in the office tomorrow, after 2 productive days working at home.
My husband's away, so I have to walk the dogs (and my own Mommy Guilt makes me want to add making sure the 7th grader gets out the door, but she's really pretty ... Read more
Do you ever go through a phase with one coincidence after another? It's happening to me....
A week or two ago, I called my daughter to check up on her. I'm not much of a fan of phones (my husband calls it phone-itis, which i... Read more
Twice a year, we have a neighborhood clothing exchange. People brings bags and bags of clothes, set them out on tables more or less according to age, and then take what they want.

Don't have too much to say today, but I set a blogging goal... :-)
Did a pretty good job being aware of my hunger today. I was hungrier than usual at my morning snack time... but wasn't ready for lunch until an hour or so later than usual. ... Read more
I still get quite annoyed that the tracker can be off by up to a kilometer when I'm on the treadmill, with the tracker carefully clipped to my shoe (as recommended). I know that the distance is off, so I assume the steps are off.

I'm not a big fan of New Year's Resolutions. There's a whole negative feel around it--like you have to be very resolved to make it work, and there's something wrong with you that has to be fixed.
I prefer the concept of a New Year's Evolut... Read more
