Stress, love, patience and ‘sucking in’

This weekend, I went with my dear friend, Jody, and a few of her family members and one other friend to make a very important purchase for her. Yes, I'm talking about wedding dress shopping.

Small town life

Around the corner, out in the country where we live, is a hardware store owned by a guy I have known since the day I was born. Our bassinets were next to each other in the hospital nursery.

An ‘Ah Ha’ historical moment

Often a researcher will experience an "Ah Ha" moment when he discovers and understands a topic totally unrelated to the topic being researched. Some also describe this as a serendipitous moment. Harvey S. Teal chronicles such a moment in this story.

The wisdom of yoga

I've learned a lot during my yoga teacher training this year. Going into my last month of the training, I realize that there is so much wisdom in the practice of yoga. Even if we are established in or have roots in another religion or spiritual practice, yoga has a lot to offer most people, because of its mindfulness aspect, even if the physical practice isn't your thing.

They will know...

Several days ago, the all too familiar sound of children fighting came from the other room in my house, a predictable occurrence for most parents. My 9-year-old twins were "debating" over who would put on their grandfather's United States Marine Corp uniform first and who would it fit best. Gender and age won out on the uniform; however, the loser would be first to hold granddad's Marine KA-BAR knife. Of course, capturing this on a cell phone was quickly requested and answered. I must say the transient moment was surreal in a way. Was it reminding me of ...

Passing the time on I-81

As interstate highways go -- long on speed but generally short on scenery -- I-81 is one of the most attractive. It winds its way up the scenic Shenandoah Valley from southern Virginia to Scranton, Pa., and beyond.

Fighting the fruit fight

I was grocery shopping a few days ago and overheard a girl telling what I assume must have been her mother that she hated vegetables. This is not anything out of the ordinary to hear in a grocery store, I'm sure, but what stuck out was that the girl was probably in her 20s and adamant about hating vegetables. I could hear it in her voice and she had a no-nonsense look on her face when she said it.

The White House Comedy Club

WASHINGTON -- While the nation's attention has been riveted on the Keystone Congress, the executive branch was busy developing its own comedy routine. Picture the cast (you know the characters) shrugging their shoulders in unison: "Who, me?"

A changing of fortune

It happened in Memphis. A lot of history and interesting stuff occurs in that magical city that sits grandly on the Mississippi River. Elvis held court there, the blues grew up there and barbecue is queen. Elvis, of course, is still king.

Superman and fixing education in South Carolina

A couple of years ago a movie came out called Waiting for Superman. It was about how education in this country is broken and too many of us are simply waiting for a Superman to come flying out of the sky to fix it for us.
