I Though About You

It was during my qigong practice. I was letting go of the realities of life and letting the chi flow freely through my body, softening the tightness in my back when I thought of you.

I thought about how you’re managing. Many of you love to share with me on my various social platforms: your favorite recipes, fave veggies. You tell me how you feel. You also let me know when you don’t agree with me. I love it all.

Oh Boy, The Corona Virus

The novel Corona Virus, best known to us now by its code name, COVID-19 has dug its tentacles into the very fabric of our modern society and left us scared and vulnerable.

But…and I cannot stress this more strongly…now is not the time to lose our minds and completely panic. If you are a person at high risk, then you might want to pay close attention to the recommended guidelines and limit your contact with people and crowded spaces.

This Is No April Fool's Joke

I was watching television one night when an ad came on that I simply could not believe I was seeing.
