It's February, so what else could this blog be about but love. Love. Love. I love love. I believe love will, can, conquer all. I believe love is the most powerful emotion of all. I believe, I believe, I believe, yet ... I am not sure I know what love is. Not the romantic love, love love, the love we should have for each other. Or, if you reserve love for certain people, then, the love we have for the people we say we love- family, friends. What is that exactly? If I love you, am I allowed to shout at you? If I love you, am I allowed to hit you- only if you are child? If I love you, can I have moments of hate for you? Can I can love and hate you at the same time? What is this thing called love?

Oh yes, 'Romeo where forth art thou.' Is this fantasy land? Oh but I digress, that's the romantic love I was trying not to talk about. Let me try another example.

Or, I love you but I wish I were 5,000 miles away from you, and, if I were 5,000 miles away.....read more

Reflections - Getting To Know Self Have you been paying attention to your thoughts and actions? A few years ago, I started paying attention to my thoughts. I couldn't believe what was going on in my head! I felt guilty about my thoughts. I attributed those thoughts to who I am and I was not happy with myself. What kind of person am I? I questioned. After I got over the shock of, what the heck, I began to notice some of my thoughts were bizarre, random, didn't reflect how I really feel. They had nothing to do with how I live my life. Then I got it, my thoughts are not who I am. The next thing I did was observe my actions. Have you ever seen ants when you pour water on them, scurrying away in a hurry? That's what my actions reminded me of. I was always in a hurry. Get in the bathroom, 10 seconds later, I am wondering what time it is. I am brushing my teeth wondering what I am going to have for breakfast, what I am going to wear, what time is it, again, what's the weather like outside, any and everything that has nothing to do with the simple act of brushing my teeth. I noticed, when I am doing something, I am usually not paying attention to what I am doing. So, I started paying attention to how I feel when doing the thing I am actually doing. Talk about interesting. When I paid attention I noticed a lot of interesting things. I started by paying attention when I brush my teeth.
