Peace, Love and Blessings to All

Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and other well wishes to all who celebrate peace, love and goodness this season. Time changes the way we celebrate, the people who are with us, and the places we may be. But nothing changes true love. Nothing changes the human desire for happiness. We long to live in peace; to…

Crossroads Without a Clear Path

I am stopped at the intersection, waiting for a sign or signal. There is no traffic light or stop sign, so I have pulled over to the side of the road. Which way shall I go? I have no map, the way is not clear in my mind and the roads ahead are not paved.…

Magical Christmas

Happy Christmas to all bloggers, visitors, friends – well everyone and anyone who happens to catch this post. I just want to say that I’m really grateful to everyone who leaves a like or a comment. I have not been posting very much this past year mostly because of lack of time, so I really…

Recovery is Possible With Support

The world is full of problems and sometimes it seems like there’s nothing we can do. It can be overwhelming so sometimes we just look the other way – until it happens to us or someone we love. I know from personal experience the pain and suffering a family goes through when someone is suffering…

New Year – New Me

I like to start off each new year by reminding myself of what I accomplished in the past year, or by thinking about all the good things that happened. I don’t think I made a New Year’s post for 2014, but my New Year’s post for 2013 was an “I Did It” list instead of a new…

Ginger and Spice make me Nice!

Warm spices add more than just sensual spice to the season, they are actually healing, especially if you suffer from inflammatory issues like I do. I’ve always enjoyed Ginger, my favorite is the Japanese thin sliced sweet pickled ginger. Chewable ginger tablets can also be helpful for stomach upset. A few months ago I read…

Cranberry Delight

I’ve always wanted to make fresh cranberry sauce, or anything with cranberries minus the high fructose corn syrup and other additives. Even though I generally don’t like to cook, I do like to experiment with taste and good nutrition. I get this idea in my head of something that would be healthy and I think,…

Meditation My Way

People often think of meditation as being something you have to take time out of your schedule to do, something you have to learn, or something you have to practice. I suppose it is that way for many people, but I prefer to think of it as something natural that we have always been inclined…

Fast & Easy Eggplant

I have an Eggplant fetish. No one else in my house likes it but I just can’t get enough of it. Stir fried Eggplant with mushrooms, onions, green peppers, lots of garlic and red pepper flakes. Lots of basil too, a little oregano and some black pepper. Mmmm… 1 cup of cubed or cooked Eggplant has…

Food, Drama and Documentaries

There has always been a lot of drama around the topic of food. Let’s face it, people like to eat. Delicious taste and the comfort of feeling full are part of life’s pleasures as well as nutrition being a necessity. But in recent history we have also been plagued with problems related to diet and…
