Caregiving and Recovery

In researching resources for caregivers, another aspect to my life, I came across a forum for caregivers to post their questions and receive support. The majority of the questions posed are in relation to the relationship between parent and child, with the child now being the primary caregiver. A rough transition. There are two sides […]

Australia’s National Sorry Day, May 26

In searching for something new and different to write about, I came across National Sorry Day, a national holiday in Australia on May 26. The holiday is intended to apologize for the Stolen Generations of Indigenous Australian peoples who were removed from their homes and separated from their families. On this day the Aboriginal flag […]


Suicide Prevention Resources

The Emergency & Recovery Resources has a new Suicide Prevention Resource. The article is explanatory and offers further resources for teachers, parents, friends, students, and other professionals on how to identify suicide symptoms and hopefully intervene to prevent it. This resource was brought to me by the mother of a young girl who recently lost […]


There is Still time to Join the Intention Energy Circle

In 2009 a man named Darius Barazandeh started the first Intention Energy Circle of its kind. It started by first gathering world-class doctors, authors, and spiritual masters to teach their secrets every day on a live tele-seminar. But then things got deeper, and before each call, Darius began taking the first 10 minutes to set […]


Ponder This: Beliefs

Developing a spiritual path is rewarding, though not always easy. The belief that once drugs, alcohol, self-abusive behaviors, and other forms of addictions are removed life becomes easier magically appears.

When I am disturbed it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation-some fact of my life-unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be […]


Three Minutes a Day

A few months back I happened upon a box of books, dumped on the curb in the parking lot of a library. Rather than walk over the box and let it be someone else’s problem to move it, I hefted it up and set it on the bench near the dropbox. Before walking a way, […]


Domestic Violence Resources Added

We can never have enough resources to provide treatment, intervention and prevention of domestic violence. Regretfully we need them. It would be terrific if one day we discovered a cure for violence. That is not going to happen, at least not in our life time. All we can do is continue to heal our own […]


Mesothelioma Victims New Resources Available

I have been remiss in continuing to develop my Emergency & Recovery Resources page. What I mean is I forgot about adding Legal Services. The category is now added. The first resource to go under this new heading is the Mesothelioma Lawyer Center. This center offers free resources for Mesothelioma Victims and family members. Some […]

How to Develop a Personal Conversation.

Do you talk to yourself? And the answer is, Yes. I have a personal conversation with myself on a regular basis. You may catch me talking out loud. Someone once said to me as long as you don’t answer yourself you’ll be alright. My retort was, why not? I have some of my best conversations […]
