Want More Energy, Passion, Creativity?

  I pulled a muscle in my back 3 weeks ago doing pull-ups.   Painful, annoying, but you know what’s really icky? I can’t move much. (The photo is from our trip to Costa Rica to remind me of feeling healthy and whole again!) I love to move. I need to move. My creativity is […]

How to Be Astonished before 10 am

              Although it is not yet 10 am, I have: enjoyed clean running water eight times and indoor plumbing twice sipped tea from the Qimen County in Anhwei province in China nibbled strawberries from the foothills of the Cascades drank blue-green algae from Lake Tahoe meditated thanks to the […]

The Hummingbird Will Help Us

A video about hummingbirds in which I tear up as people walk by my house – it makes better sense if you watch (click here if you don’t see a video). It’s been a fabulous week. Monday I was over at The Domino Project’s Self-Reliance Initiative; a 30 day compilation of writing prompts inspired by […]

Will You Walk with Me?

Since I started this Savor & Serve experiment, I’ve been running away from two hairy questions. I look over my shoulder at them frequently, then, just as quickly, look away.

My prompt: Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind. Absolve you to […]

13 Ways to Savor & Serve (unity baby unity)

Let’s bring into action, shall we? 1. Love list: write down what you love. Linger over it. Share it on the bus, at work, on Facebook. When you own what you love, nothing can stop you. 2. Talk to a homeless person (or anyone else you would shy away from) with the same care you […]

The Quest of Your Heart

“Last of all, you must want to find it,” she said, flipping her thick black braid off her shoulder. I frowned. What kind of idiot did she take me for? I traveled 3200 miles, by cab, two airplanes, by rental car over dusty washboard roads for three and half arm numbing hours, and finally, by […]

Bucket List Got You Down? Try a Thimble List

I do not have a bucket list. On paper, I love the idea of it – a list of things to experience in life – and I can certainly see how such a list could motivate you to open more to wonder. As much as I love adventure (I’m in Portland this weekend at the […]
