Meet my new friend Earl!

I have another biking story for you today but this one is not about a bike race.  This is a story about loving kindness and my new friend Earl! Last weekend I was riding my bike on a road that is pretty popular with the cyclists in town.   As I was approaching a long, gradual climb on this road, I could

Finding your rhythm….

Intuitively, we know that change is good.  It may not always feel good but in the end we can usually see that the changes we have made were all for the best.

I hope my story will inspire you!

Today I'd like to share a story with you.  It's a story about me, my bicycle and never giving up.  My hope in telling you this story is that it will give you some inspiration as you navigate these very uncertain times. As many of you know I LOVE to ride my bike.  I bought my first road bike when I

Springtime recipes just for YOU!

After I sent out my last newsletter, I came across a couple recipes that I just had to share with you!  One is a pesto recipe that would make a great topping for pasta, salads or steamed veggies.  The other is a white bean dish that would also be a nice addition to pasta or a salad plus

Let nature be your guide…..

How are you doing?  These days when I ask that question, more often than not people tell me they are feeling completely overwhelmed.  That's definitely how I have been feeling as well.  Everything seems so surreal right now and trying to find balance can be a real challenge. One thing that has always helped me find my balance

I think you are going to like this……

This is just a quick note to tell you about an email I received yesterday announcing the start of a meditation series with Oprah and Deepak Chopra.   FINDING HOPE IN UNCERTAIN TIMES is a free 21 day meditation series and I think it is exactly what we need right now.

We are all in this together….

Wow.....to say that things are a little crazy right now just might be the biggest understatement of the year!  With the reality of the coronavirus looming all around, it's seems we have all been impacted on some level.  Whether you are facing health challenges, fiscal concerns or wondering whether or not you have enough toilet paper
