My Audible Change

Life can be complicated. You know it. I know it. Complications can create obstacles and obstacles can get in the way of fixing what needs fixing, achieving what we want or reaching the heights we dream of. I know that the power to achieve your goals and make positive changes in your life can seem […]

Thumbnail image for School on wheels brings classes to Indian slums by Moments Count

HYDERABAD, India — On a hot afternoon, a bright orange bus drives into a slum area of the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, parking amidst shelters made of tarpaulins and bits of wood. Barefoot children come running, eyes shining, and troop inside. It’s a school on wheels that brings education to the doorstep of disadvantaged children […]

Hungry For Change

Thumbnail image for Hungry For Change by Valli Keller

                                I’m a life-long carb-o-holic.  As a child, our house usually had home-baked cakes, cookies or pies hanging around.  Homemade ice cream was a summer staple.  I have always measured the holidays by what candy was my favorite for that […]

Thumbnail image for A Nutritional Clue Offers Hope for Military Suicides by Lily Casura

It’s not often enough that we get to report some good news about suicide and the military — for months now, the numbers have been climbing in the wrong direction, with few notable exceptions to the trend. However, just recently, a development from a most unusual quarter shows some true promise for the future. And for those […]

Forget about resolutions. Instead: Envision! Intend! Act!

Thumbnail image for Forget about resolutions. Instead: Envision! Intend! Act! by Lauren Rosenfeld

I’m not a big fan of New Year’s Resolutions. It seems to me that besides being notoriously hard to keep — there’s a lot of negative judgment hidden within them. And I honestly don’t think you have to dig too deep to find the judgment. Usually that judgment is right there, just below the surface, […]

A study in the Oct. 11 issue of Nature Communications that caps more than […]

Got the Rainy Day Blues?

Thumbnail image for Got the Rainy Day Blues? by Paula O Sullivan

I was standing in a shop looking out the window at the rain, the other day, when a man commented that it was awful when it was raining, as you couldn’t go out anywhere. I was going to ask him if that was so, then how the heck did he get here, like was he […]

Here are a few photos from my hike up the Barr Trail to Barr Camp, which is 6.5 miles and 3,800 vertical feet, or a little better than half the way to Pike’s Peak summit. I just got back to the motor home about an hour ago. I’d had the night’s reservation for Barr Camp […]

Cynicism is a cinch

Thumbnail image for Cynicism is a cinch by Brooke Leigh Sheldon

I have come to a realization. Cynicism is a cinch! Perhaps you know some people who are true masters of cynicism. Let me help you identify them. They are pretty easy to recognize. They may say things like: “It won’t work!” “You can’t do it.” “No. It’s impossible.” “You’ll never do be able to.” “We […]
