Doing Nothing… Insight From Martha

Yesterday I went whale-watching with my son Adam and my partner Karen. It was a beautiful day, and there were humpbacks everywhere.

A Resting Revolution: Insight from Martha

So, as you know, if you’ve been following my writing and coaching, I’m heavily into helping people reclaim their “true nature.” It is what I’ve always done, but with a new sense of purpose and urgency as change begins to make our habitual ways of behaving obsolete and counterproductive.

How You Got Here Is How You Walk Here

My friend Dan believes that our whole lives are metaphorically prefigured in the story of our respective births. I’ve been asking everyone, to see if I agree, and I have to admit Dan has a point. My own birth was pretty normal except that I was huge—10 pounds, 14 ounces. Eight years later, when I - Continue Reading

The Adequate-Sleep Life-Enhancing Experimental Project

First of all, I want to register a simultaneous apology and complaint:  My blog won’t post pictures today.  This has made me feel so defeated I think I’ll go back to bed.  Which leads me to today’s topic… Something incredibly bizarre happened to me last night.I turned out the light at midnight, but didn’t fall - Continue Reading
