Does anyone here bite their fingernails? Ok, I’ll admit, I do. I bite my nails. It’s not something I’m proud of. But I’d bet my last meditation cushion that most of you do this too sometimes. I also pick at my fingers when I’m concentrating on something or lost in thou...

Hey. Hey you! Hey, wake up! Open your sweet eyes…Time to wake up. Come on, time to start your life! Reluctantly, you open one eye but only a little tiny bit to let some light in. You stretch your legs, tightening your muscles, then relaxing them again. You drift back t...

I’ve been thinking about something today. Do kids care if your kitchen drawers are organized?

What. That IS what I’ve been thinking about. Haven’t you ever wondered? Ok, maybe it’s just me. But seriously. Do they care at all if the drawers are perfectly neat?

I had a terrible evening with my kids last night. It was so bad that I wound up not sleeping half the night. My son and daughter were bickering at each other, and before I could even look twice, it had escalated into a huge screaming fight; except that it was only my...

This morning sucked.

 

I live in a dead-end street, and have to turn right onto a very narrow street in order to take my two sons to school in the mornings. Usually, the road is quite crowded, as many people are taking their kids to school and trying to get to work. To...
