The Power of Placebos and Visualisation

The Power of Placebos and Visualisation

A rare event occurred on Mon­day night; I had com­plete auton­omy over the tele­vi­sion, my son hav­ing gone upstairs to immerse him­self in the pro­duc­tion of his own ‘Super Hero’s Lego’ film clip, on his phone.  Lying back on the sofa, I flicked through the chan­nels; my eyes imme­di­ately engaged on BBC 2’s Hori­zon programme […]

Love Yourself Generously!

Today is Valentine’s Day and it has become a “Hall­mark Hol­i­day” that focuses on romance, hearts, choco­late and flow­ers. Love and romance are ide­al­ized in ways that some peo­ple expe­ri­ence and many don’t ~ and we can be swayed by all this mes­sag­ing to think there’s some­thing to strive for and then we’ll know true […]

Flooding and Cancer?

Jan­u­ary 2014 in the UK, has gone down on record as the wettest for over 250 years. Severe weather warn­ings con­tinue to hit the head­lines, with high winds and rain lash­ing the coun­try­side, destroy­ing coastal towns, rail­way lines and leav­ing the many areas under sev­eral feet of water. Mar­low, in the Thames Val­ley where I live […]

The Planet Venus and You

The Planet Venus and You

| January 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

The planet Venus sym­bol­izes beauty, love, romance and sex­u­al­ity. She is con­cerned with mat­ters of the heart and body related to love. Venus trav­els across the sky and as she tran­sits we expe­ri­ence the influ­ence of her move­ments, some­times sub­tly and some­times more obvi­ously. This month, Jan­u­ary 2014, Venus is ret­ro­grade, which means she is […]

On Sat­ur­day I had an encounter with TSA on my way to catch a flight from Boston to San Fran­cisco. It’s strange enough that travel these days involves dis­rob­ing and some­times being pat­ted down. But when there are ques­tion­able items in carry-on lug­gage, it adds even more insult to the expe­ri­ence. First some “hot spots” […]

There’s a Party in Aisle 15 ~ What Does Hardware Have to do with Sexuality?

  Recently a friend told me that this image reminded her of me and my work. As I looked at it, I laughed, get­ting the joke.  And then it got me think­ing about how we some­times make jokes or shame our­selves about our sex­u­al­ity. You’ve prob­a­bly seen the know­ing winks and heard the snick­ers when […]

From Thankful To Grateful

From Thankful To Grateful

| November 21, 2013 | 8 Comments

When I was grow­ing up, Thanks­giv­ing Day had lit­tle to do with being grate­ful and every­thing with  food.    We took a mere two min­utes to men­tion the Pil­grims and ate.  Most of the foods were richly laden  with fat, car­bo­hy­drates and sugar. My sib­lings and I would spend hours look­ing through the big name catalogs […]

Life is a Roller Coaster

Life is a Roller Coaster

| November 19, 2013 | 3 Comments

by Angela Long I have determined…life is a roller coaster that we get to ride one time, and it’s mostly in the dark. My ride started off pretty smoothly….with the typ­i­cal ups and downs. Until that day in Feb­ru­ary of 2004 when I heard those three lit­tle words that would for­ever change my life… “You […]

Today is Novem­ber 1, El Dia de Los Muer­tos, the Day of the Dead. This morn­ing at Boot Camp, I men­tioned to my work­out pal about this. She said, “What??!! A day of deals and mir­a­cles?” We laughed and decided that we like that idea. As the day has gone on this has stayed with me. […]

To Pink Or Not To Pink, That Is The Question

To Pink Or Not To Pink, That Is The Question

Today is offi­cially the start of Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month.  This is typ­i­cally when pink mer­chan­dise comes out of the wood­work.  Some of it is taste­ful and some of it is tacky.  Will I wear any­thing and every­thing pink?  The answer is no.  Do I wear pink?  The answer is yes. The why behind it is […]
