Let the wind and the rain and hail blow high

They were given six capsules of gamma-linolenic acid--this is the effective agent found in the evening primrose--twice daily for a year. The control group was given a placebo.

The snow comes tumbling from the sky

And there are times when frustration or loneliness or fatigue still lead me to the chocolate in the cupboard. I make a choice. Most of the time, I choose to acknowledge what I am feeling and allow myself to go ahead and feel whatever is bothering me. Every pastor is …

They knock at the door and ring at the bell

Novices in some of the reviewed studies would qualify as experts in others. Without clear agreement about how to define and/or classify expertise objectively in sport, the future of the field is bleak because a question mark hangs over the validity and generalizability of research findings on expert novice …

Did you get it down in your soul?

There were no exceptions, no second chances, no getting clean at forty or finding new love at sixty. You have only one shot, and it's downhill from there. To reinforce that message, hourglasses were common in these staircases. The socially constructed nuances--the unspoken rules--associated with the socio-economic class in which …

Sometimes, when the spirit moves me

Elizabeth had my attention. Now there are many camps when it comes to dividing socio-economic classes. I had studied numerous models of American socio-economic classes in college ranging from traditional three categories (lower-class, middle-class, and upper-class) to a comprehensive nine social class model. Therefore you have the opportunity as part …

I may be a vehicle for you

That means getting to your maximum heart rate, panting and recovering, and then going back up. Your practice today is to go to the park and find an open field. Warm up for 5 minutes and stretch your hips, hamstrings, ankles, and torso. When ready, sprint across the field at …

Fill me up from your loving cup

They are not top down; They reflect, I believe, the truth about how people are actually responding to this period of unprecedented change. Which brings me to my moon shot dream, the ultimate cultural windmill I'd like to tilt against. I'd like to redefine what life transitions mean. As long …

I'm tired of the ways of mice and men

The other people in law enforcement who consult viewers (there are no statistics on how many) are off the record about it: An officer quietly enlists the assistance on his or her own. A high-profile example is that of Patricia Hearst's kidnapping (she is the daughter of newspaper magnate William …

The empires are all turning into rust again

Otherwise, how could I effectively put together strategies and methodologies that would maximize the opportunity to teach these kids? So that's really where it all started for me.

There are strange things happening every day

After all, I felt it was entirely my fault, that I was weak and pathetic, and simply lacked the willpower to go on a diet, lose weight and sort myself out once and for all. So I kept quiet and kept going round and round in circles. I moved to …

I've been travelling all around the world

Sometimes I wish I could fly

It used to be common thought that mind and body were both very separate. This was the thinking of Rene Descartes, the French philosopher, mathematician and scientist, some 400 years ago. But today, we view things rather differently. The body is the gross part of the mind, and the mind …

Do I know what's truly real?

Is this not to prevent students from hurting themselves? When I ask a student to adopt a certain position or to create an alignment or correct their posture, this is NOT because of safety. I ask them to follow my specific cues as well as they can because I want …

Anyone who's ever loved

How can that be? There is a big rock outside my house. I couldn't move it then, and I can't move it now! And from all the wisdom of James, that's the most important thing I've learned. William James himself once said: The greatest use of a life is to …

I forgot that love existed

Because even though the cost in these states is to our sanity, health or happiness, at least we know where we stand. I didn't mean to, but I'm sure I did. Yet oddly enough, when I wrote this article, my mom quoted a line from the movie, The Help (2011 …

Experience the long cold wintry years

Take some quiet moments to intuitively sense where the person's heart is hurting or closed. It was a deal-clincher for me. Caroline North McIlvanney's copy-editing and attention to detail was nothing short of genius and her helpful suggestions greatly appreciated. I would also like to thank Josh Benn, Patsy Irwin …

I saw the light of ancient Greece

Once I had a boyfriend with this kind of jealousy. He was an otherwise endearing, brilliant, socially conscious environmentalist. She was there for all the family dramas.

That's all I know

As you mature, friends, teachers, mates, and colleagues affect self-esteem too.
