These conditions are a breeding ground for division that can cause a desperate people to resort to nuc...

When Will it Ever Stop?

Blog-Banner
I come from there and I have memories  Born as mortals are, I have a mother  And a house with many windows,  I have brothers, friends,  And a prison cell with a cold window.  Mine is the wave, snatched by seagulls,  I have my own view,  And an extra blade of grass.  Min...

A Letter from India

A Letter from India
Given the subject line of this newsletter, I could have easily put up a picture of what is happening in India with the exhausting figures of Covid deaths each day. I couldn't bear to do that. Instead, I selected this sublime picture by British artist, Phil Greenwood. It offers a sense of calmness, some relief, a hint of lightness, and through the a...

The Reimagine Your Family Podcast Launches May 15th by Trace Hobson

Earth Day 2021

Blog-Banner-1
It's official, Earth Day is April 22. Having one day to symbolize cleaning up the rubbish in our parks, roadways, and beaches, and planting trees and pulling out evasive plants to help native plants flourish is a bit silly. Don't get me wrong, it is wonderful to see all this concern and activity for one day, but isn't this something we should be do...

I'm Taking a Chance

Im-Taking-a-Chance
