The F word and why I use it daily

“Let go all the trivial things that churn and bubble on the surface of your mind.”—A Course in Miracles I’ve come up with a test for determining what’s important. If it’s widely misunderstood, it’s probably worth my attention. Case in point: the word “God”—more baggage than a Samsonite store, completely misconceived, the coolest force on […]

“I love swimming in the great question of what is real, true, what’s happening here in this thing called life.”—Grace Bell As some of you may have noticed, negativity and problems seem to be ballooning out of control.

Shazam or Suffering Succotash: you decide

“Happiness is where you start from rather than where you go. God, I sound like Yoda.”—Simon Pegg In E-Cubed I talk about the power of words, how we literally foretell and create the future by what we say. When we talk smack about our lives, even little things like, “Oh, I wish I’d gotten up […]

Houston, we have a winner or “Why it’s time to play with a lion’s testicles.”

I’m just the garden hose that the water sprays through.” –Joyce Carol Oates I’d like to interrupt this blog with a non-commercial announcement. Yee-haw!
