Inspired by the recent actions of one of my daughters, I decided to take a break from social media for a while and to consciously observe the effect of this decision in my daily life. I am not on Instagram, I do not Snapchat, nor do I Tweet so it really comes down to Facebook

Have you ever experienced the attraction and magnetism of a newborn infant? They are magical in ways we find hard to explain.  You just can’t help but stare at them. Their innocence, enthusiasm and the joy of experiencing their new body is intoxicating. But I believe the attraction is more because we are able to so clearly see the true

It’s November……I didn’t grow up in the United States but, having lived here for the majority of my life, I have grown to love the month of November for the simple reason of the Thanksgiving Holiday tradition and celebration.

Watching a young couple struggle with the challenges of a 10 hr 30 minute flight from London back to San Francisco recently, and managing their two very young children, memories came flooding back of many such occasions when my children were that young! I was reminded of the beautiful messiness of traveling – how it

In my last article, I wrote about the 30-day Forgiveness Challenge, created by the Rev. Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Mpho, in which I was participating, and how enlightening the process was for me personally. Truth be told, my practice stalled in the middle of the Challenge.  There were a number of factors that contributed
