Next week is the UM-Day — October 11, Saturday is my Ultra Marathon. Many people have wished me well and suggested I “keep it in perspective, keep it in balance.” I gave that phrase a great deal of thought and concluded that is the last thing I will do.
The fact is, I do not want this in balance nor perspective. It will be one of the Memorable Days of my life. You know the kind — the special events, the first home run, marathon, meeting your wife, birthdays, exceptional vacations… Continue

Today's area of focus is one of the most useful but under- valued diagnostic- type tools -- Trace Mineral Analysis or Hair Analysis. If the eyes are considered the "Gateway to the Soul", then the hair is the "Gateway to the Minerals." Hair Analysis is a precise way of determining the following:
- Mineral and electrolyte levels such as calcium, magnesium, iron etc. - Trace Mineral levels such as manganese, molybdenum, boron, keys to healthy liver detoxification, skeletal health, sugar… Continue

I watched a commercial the other day with Robert Redford who started off with “As it relates to Global Warming and the environment, there is no debate. . . .” Why is there no debate Bob?? There are many of us who think that global warming and the “green movement” are politically motivated fairy tales. Why not debate it?! If I am wrong, I really want to know. I owe it to my fellow citizens and the planet to alter my behavior. Recycling plastics and newspapers and buying recycled products is… Continue

We want to be happy, want to eliminate what is bothering us, want to be free from stress and from pain and live a life filled with light.
We want to live in a state that is commonly known as heaven.
Well, my friends, that's just not good enough!
Heaven, you see, is one of the states of mind or existence we pass through on our journey. There is heaven (we've all had glimpses of that), there is hell (yep, been there), there is the human state and the animal state.… Continue

The beginning of autumn means that we're entering apple season, which will be a time of cider, desserts, and the crisp, wholesome goodness of the fruit freshly picked from your local orchard. Apples have been a staple of healthy eating for many years, and the often-repeated line of an apple a day keeping the doctor away is far from a myth. Apples really do have a wonderful variety of nutritional benefits, and are a tasty addition to any diet of good health and longevity.
Of all of… Continue

In my 26 years as a divorce attorney, and especially the last dozen years that I have been a divorce mediator, a phrase I have heard very often when I get up on my soapbox about Peaceful Divorce is, “but you don’t know my ex!” or “it’s not possible to have a peaceful divorce in my situation”. Not so. You CAN learn how to get a divorce the peaceful way, whether your spouse or ex is on board right now or not.
Now that may not be what you want to hear because what it does is place the… Continue

It was our usual hot, humid summer. We consumed more water than a fish and now, finally, FINALLY, the weather has broken and Fall is upon us. Just as the trees, plants and other aspects of Nature change, so too must our bodies adjust to this new season. How we treat ourselves now will dictate how we feel in the Winter in particular. The colds or flus people get and attribute it to “it was going around” or “it is the ‘flu season’” is almost always a result of improper preparation in… Continue

After just jetting back from Seattle, I had to go to the beach, I love and live for the beach. Our beautiful natural resource, well one of many!

Coffee's ability to forestall mental decline has been the subject of some very interesting research lately. First, a study from France showed that women who drank three or more cups of coffee daily were 30 percent less likely to have memory problems at age 65 than women who drank a single cup of coffee or less.
The study, published in the August 7, 2007, issue of Neurology, found that the benefit of drinking coffee increased with age: memory decline among women over 80 who drank… Continue

Let's face it, our collective consciousness is running a fever. As if fear of recession wasn't enough, the threatening collapse of the banking system is really shaking us up, making us hold tight to our wallets, and secretly wishing Mommy would come and make it all better.
Of course that 'Mommy,' that being with the magical touch that can make us feel good when things are scary, is none other than us. And we can do it. All it takes is the correct knowledge of how we function and the… Continue

Funny how the “right” things come to you at the “right” time. I hit a snag a few weeks ago and was caught in an internal web of irritation, frustration and a few other -tions. Some topics for me are pure poison and when I make the mistake of engaging in them, I venture down a path of very low energy. Some things bring out the best in a person. This brought out the worst.
In this midst of this internal battle, I read an exceptionally written article on Systema (not really a big… Continue

Notes to Myself
I was speaking with my dear friend about his desire of letting go. I wanted to know what he was letting go of. All of it he said. I wanted a list. In fact, I whipped out my journal and made a list of everything I wanted to let go of. My friend replied I am letting go of the energy of all the things I am carrying. He told me I was being too analytical about it, rather than just experiencing it. Yes, that is my Aquarian nature, think, analyze, think,… Continue
