No time for long runs? Why HIIT works for me

Stay open hearted in a world with so much turmoil

Stay open hearted in a world with so much turmoil

The world can sometimes be a scary place in which to live and raise our families. There’s no shortage of war, violence, poverty and disease out there. But responding to that turmoil by shutting down and pulling away, rather than by reaching out, only adds to the existing problem. Rather than fearing the dark, we can be the light that penetrates the darkness, driven by our sense of faith and optimism. We can remain open hearted in the face of turmoil.

I didn't marry my soul mate, Part 2

About a year ago, I wrote an article titled, “I didn’t marry my soul mate.” I was very honest about a period of time in my marriage when both of us wondered if we had chosen incorrectly and even if we had settled.

The role of rocks in the Gaelic nations

The role of rocks in the Gaelic nations

The earth is the third rock from the sun. Ireland and Scotland combined are 84 percent of that chunk. Visiting these grand lands confirms that notion. There are so many rocks in these Gaelic territories that everything is made from them.
