The Beauty of Illiteracy

**This is a repost from a blog I started while living in China** I can read a decent amount of Chinese characters---belly dancing is not one of them. So, when I decided to get back on the yoga wagon at my local Chinese studio, I attempted to read and select a class from the schedule card written all in Chinese…

Writing Your Life

When's the last time you sang? I hope it was today or just now. I can always tell something is amiss in my life when I don't sing. Singing makes me incandescently happy. I haven't been singing lately. Weeks of travel coupled with many "to do's" have left me serious and soul searching. As I've been reminded by friends, family, and society,…

Cleaning House: Making Room for a New Year

The Chinese have a beautiful tradition for Spring Festival, or Chinese New Year. Each family cleans their house thoroughly before the end of the year. In mopping, dusting, and sweeping every nook and cranny, the old energy of the previous year is cleared away, and there is space for the new. On the first day of the new year (according…

Why don’t you quit your job?

I've been talking a lot about 6 Months to Live with several new people lately, and it's always interesting to hear people's comments and questions.  One person sarcastically asked, "Well, if you only had 6 months to live, why are you still working?"  I read him a quote from my Kickstarter Project: "Most of us have no idea when our…

Based on a True Story: Meet Currie Rose

One of blogging's many beauties is that it opens doors to meet new people around the world.  Shortly after I started my blog, I began "wandering" around the internet.  I wanted to see what other people had to share.  It was a day like any other when I read "Based on a True Story" and met an extraordinarily inspirational individual,…

“Angry Girl Inhales Waffle Cone”

Today's headline might have read something like this in my world.  It was a rough day.  After biking home, I took a swift walk to the park and unloaded my frustrations.  My mom patiently listened on the phone, as I told her about everything going on in my world and then she said "I love you" and goodnight. On the…

A Tribute to my Favorite Centenarian

My grandmother passed on Ash Wednesday, March 9, 2011.  I was given the honor to speak at her funeral 2 weeks ago.  This is what I said about Mary Teresa, a woman that is dearly missed and will always be in our hearts. I’ve always known Grandmother is an angel.  It only took a flash from her blue eyes or…

Jimmy Stewart Moments

Every Christmas season I make my movie rounds. Tradition dictates that I start with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation on Thanksgiving, followed closely by Scrooged, Home Alone, The Santa Clause, and of course, It's a Wonderful Life. No matter how many times I watch It's a Wonderful Life, I am touched by the idea that we each make a difference.  What, if…
