I'm supposed to be on an airplane right here right now Saturday August 18, 2018, 8:12am as I start to type this, flying to the East Coast with my son for a visit with family. Only the flight was cancelled at 10:48PM last night, after I'd gone to sleep. So I didn't see the notice until 4:10AM toda...

I promised to get some photos, and I wanted to make sure to give everyone who contributes to this treasure his/her/its fair recognition. The magic of how many different people, agencies, non-profits and and for-profit companies came together to grow this little haven makes it even more special. B...
My heartfelt thanks to Deborah Forrest, an insightful, skillful, compassionate and dedicated hypnotherapist, for this laugh-until-you-snort take on the mysteries of "I can't say 'no'." I'm paraphrasing, and If I'm getting it wrong, I ought to be ashamed! From here on, I'm using myself as the exam...
Disclosure: I'm announcing a paid affiliate relationship in this post. I've recommended  for years, after one of my most trusted mentors taught me about this outstanding one-size-really-can-fit-all source for kitchen, garage, closet, laundry, bath, and and and and and.... So I'll admit I was thri...
"A drowning man will clutch at a straw." Thomas More, Dialogue of Comfort Against Tribulation (1534) I went over a cliff these last few days. Details are unimportant. And what let me float in mid-air, Wile E. Coyote faithful, were the many many handfuls of pretty pebbles I grabbed from that miser...
I'm making it a habit to find sustenance, even if only in 15 minute bursts. Not food, although I was inconsolably disappointed to be hot-dog-less on National Hot Dog Day. Parks, music, coffee breaks with friends. Spontaneous art projects meaning ridiculously simple stuff like restringing a neckla...
I first read about 365 Meaningful Conversations on page 5 of the May 7, 2018 Woodinville Weekly (Making a Difference One Conversation at a Time). I was intrigued. Audrey Phillips sells packs of 365 notecards, each enlivened with an inspirational quote, a question about the quote and one of Ms. Ph...
Once upon a time, new Organizer slaying dragons, I read the 2002 edition of “ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life” by Judith Kolberg & Kathleen Nadeau. This was my review: “I had an unusual reaction to this book by Kathleen G. Nadeau, a highly-regarded ADD coach. This is an excellent resource ...
I DO NOT like to waste money. Have I? Of course, personally and professionally. That jacket that looked sooooo right in the artificial lights. That "everything you need to know about ..." course.
