Self-Mediation
Sunday, January 10, 2016      30 comments

Attempts at self-improvement can be harsh. It can feel like the same kind of all-or-nothing "judgement" that litigants are exposed to in court. You're guilty. You're wrong. You deserve punishment. Like that. An alternative to court ... Read more

Trivia F Student
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      25 comments

Nope, didn't make Trivia A student for December -- on track with 92% until December 28 or so and then crashed and burned. Doing TERRIBLE so far in 2016: five wrongs before I got three rights this morning. Duh! How many times ha... Read more

DH is driving our son to the airport: his holiday at home is over, and he's back to work tomorrow. And Charlie is in mourning. He knows. Best present ? Having him home. The price of love is grief. No question.... Read more
Out with the Old!
Sunday, January 03, 2016      33 comments

One of the things we did over the holiday period was a massive communal decluttering -- with DH ordering the biggest dumpster I've ever seen, parked on our driveway outside the garage. I would NEVER have thought we could fill it. But: ... Read more

Saturday, January 02, 2016      21 comments

Wow, any mild snarkiness I may have communicated concerning the price of the Susan Peirce Thompson boot camp ($997) and monthly Bright Lifer ($20) fees really has to be further moderated by my continuing astonishment (and gratitude) for the tru... Read more

SPT Video # 4: Boot Camp Hard Sell?
Wednesday, December 30, 2015      30 comments

OK then, I think Susan Peirce Thompson is very generous with respect to the free info in her first three videos. And all of the free info on her website too. But Video #4 is I think new: it references current time with bootcamp launching J... Read more
