So sad for Paris. So sad for all of us. I had a very personal response to watching the events. It reminded me of my own recent experience with learning about the bombing in my son's school in Oregon, and knowing he was okay.. In my dreams, I... Read more

Recently my husband and I had a contretemps about something, the specific of which, neither of us now remember, but we both reacted from our old patterns. And these are patterns that just arise and one finds oneself having the same reaction and... Read more
