    Some people, such as my husband, are passionate about physical exercise. He looks forward to heading off to the gym, or riding his bike, or rollerblading – almost every day. I, on the other hand, do not ...

  • How Does Social Media Make You Feel?

    Marketing and media experts agree. Social media are major influences on our lives. We are drawn to them. What do we have to say to the world? What are other people saying? We want to know! The question is this: How do we feel after we have immersed ourselves in Facebook or Twitter or any other social medium for an extended period? Social media is not inherently bad. I like keeping up with family and friends. However, ...

  • Beauty Stirs the Soul

    Why does beauty stir our minds and hearts?  Why does looking at the natural world create feelings of deep joy? I cannot answer those questions.  However, I experienced these feelings during two recent weeks spent in Alaska.  There is one word to describe the scenery there:  spectacular! For the ...
