Speed.

For most of us, that word implies fast motion. It also describes rate of motion. This month, the speed of life will feel like a fight scene from the movie, The Matrix: Life will move at an extremely fast pace interspersed with moments of suspended animation. Keep...

Here's your riddle for the month:

Are you coming, or are you going?

When you leave your home to go to a park, are you leaving your house, or going to the park? Of course, you're actually doing both, but what's happening in your mind? At what point do your thoughts switch...

It's time to put the question, "what do you love?" under a microscope. Make no assumptions about what you'll find on the glass slide. There may be some new creatures undulating there. There may be a resurgence of creatures you thought were long gone. Or the same old be...

I offer you four interpretations of the term, bone consciousness:

I have two metaphors for you this month.

1, The riddle of juxtaposition:

Two colors, when put next to each other, strike us differently than when we see each color in isolation. Some colors effect each other more so than others. Hence, when an individual is in the compan...

When two beings fall in love, there is a tightrope alchemy of unsung support that enables that otherworldly whirl of emotion and magic: chance encounters; electrified air; an infinity of synchronicity and circumstance; an endless stream of previous what-if's leading ba...

 I know you just started reading, but I suggest you stop reading for a moment, and quickly make a list of all the things that suck you in: routines, couches, assumptions, your phone, snacks, work, emotional patterns like worry, or other mental whirligigs. Don't think t...

Here's what I do when I'm about to start a big project:

First, I clear everything else out of the way, including the dirty dishes, the dust bunnies, and the pesky piles of papers. I scrap the go-nowhere projects, and tie up the loose ends of the nearly-completed project...
