“Odyssey” is a new phase of human development: did you take yours?

Well here we are. In the exact middle of winter. Bleh. Or yay, if you take advantage of this moment to snuggle in, rest, and repair, as Katherine May prescribes in her book Wintering. Many of us hit a bluesy patch right about now, and this year we’re enjoying a double whammy of seasonal affective …

Happy December to you! Around my town, holiday decorations were up before Thanksgiving; people couldn’t wait to illuminate with cheer. Understandable. And I have some coaching-style cheer for you.

Love Is An Action

When I was a teenager, observing how one develops feelings of love (and watching Sixteen Candles, Footloose and St Elmo’s Fire for guidance) I was pretty sure that love happened. It was a switch that flipped, a rush; see this adorable one minute animation for an example. Now, as I’m approaching 50, I see love …

You CAN Handle The Truth

We’re settling in for the long haul now. In more than half the states across the country, school is done for the year.
