For anyone who’s ever thought yoga a waste of time —

I am a runner. No, no, no. I am not running from the law or a rabid dog or the neighbor down the street who never, ever seems to shut up. The other kind — the kind that laces her shoes, takes off down the road for a few miles and sweats, a lot. I’ve always been a…

When MTV catches you on film with a caterpillar …

You know how every now and then something happens — something strange and bizarre — and you catch yourself looking around, knowing full and well that Ashton Kutcher and his buddies from MTV are lurking in the bushes waiting to spring out and inform you that yes, indeed, you have been punk’d. (What? You don’t…

Efficient bodies sweat – a lot!

I have always been a sweater. Wait a minute … that doesn’t look right. Not the knitted pullover your head kind of sweater … but the body-ridding itself of toxins, excess salt, heat … that kind of sweater. I mean it’s not like I stink or anything, but when I finish a run my pores…

A coffee enema? Say what?

She is smart (unfortunately for me a little too damn smart at times); thin and muscular (she’s an athlete; probably weighs 130 pounds, wears a size 2); she is nice (to everyone except her 12-year old sister); she is beautiful (really, I’m not just saying that ‘cause…

Don’t let your heart kill you!!

Life’s Simple 7™ Because I live in Indiana, this research was geared towards fellow Hoosiers – however there are lessons here for all Americans, coast to coast … not just those of us who’ve settled in a fly-over state. In a recent study by the Center for Disease Control on heart health, Indiana and Missouri tied for…

Is Legwarmers Really One Word?

I like people.  Most people.  And all in all I’m pretty satisfied to be a card carrying member of the Human Race … Today, when I initially started to write (I’m working on a sequel to my book) there was a rather unconstructive thought bouncing through my brain – which, in turn made any form…
