How and Where to Donate Old Toys


The first year I broached the idea of giving some of their toys away, my kids looked at me like I had three heads. My first approach was nonchalance: “Well, you guys haven’t really played with these things for a … Continue reading

Happy 4th of the July! Happy Interdependence Day!


I’m sure there’s a lot of things they couldn’t see coming. But maybe we can, if we open our eyes just a little bit wider. If we prick up our ears just a little bit higher. If we shut down, turn off and tune in to the signal. That hum, that strum that each and every one of us sends out into the ether. The calling to one another, that falls deaf upon our ears, but weighs heavy on the trees, bees and atmosphere. So as we spark up the charcoal, turn up the radio, and slather on the sunblock- maybe just for a moment- can we shut it all down and tune into the Mother Earth Rock? She’s talking to us, she answering our cries, we’re talking to her though we don’t realize. After you’ve listened to her for a while, your heart will feel full, like a permanent smile. Then take a walk over to the edge of your fence, you will hear the birds sing…Happy Interdependence!!! Continue reading
