Spring is finally here, in rural Cortland County NY, although there's still snow in the woods, and this morning was a brisk 22 degrees with a heavy frost on the ground. I'm getting lots of letters from readers, who apparently, having seen my new non-fiction book all over the internet are in a panic about their favorite series. So clearly I needed to give you an update. My Muse and Me…. I plan to write a Bliss Book featuring each of the elements, and call them something like B
*This is not a religious post. Continuing now with the theme of ideas that will absolutely improve our lives the minute we adopt them and put them into practice, I want to talk about belief. There is nothing in our lives that influences them more than what we believe; what we believe about ourselves, what we believe about what we're capable of, what we believe about why we're here, what we believe about what and who we are and what we believe about what happens when we move o
So many of the women I know seem to spend way too much time angry. They're angry at their husbands, their siblings, their children, their parents, their employers, the government, their school districts.

This will be my final post about this fabulous gift to all women, the book GODDESSES NEVER AGE by Christiane Northrup.

It's part of the story of our tribe, and should be shared among us. Its message is that aging is far more a mental process than an inevitable, physical one, and that we can remain vital, vibrant, sexy
We humans do some pretty odd things with our health. I know someone who was so afraid of breast cancer that she underwent a double mastectomy, but didn't quit smoking. I know people who are 100+ pounds overweight, and taking massive quantities of medications to control blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, back pain, knee pain, and acid reflux, even though losing the weight would reverse most, possibly all, of their other health issues. I've known of people with bleeding
In the book, GODDESSES NEVER AGE, which I've chosen to blog about here, Chapter Two focuses on the chemical Nitric Oxide (not Nitrous, which is a whole different thing) Nitric Oxide prevents stroke, and signals white blood cells to destroy tumors, and to reduce inflammation. Inflammation, you might recall from our last discussion, is the base cause of most illnesses and cancers. Everything that can go wrong in the body seems to start out with inflammation. And the way we stim
$1.99 on Kindle! Goddesses Never Age This week I re-read the Introduction and Chapter One of GODDESSES NEVER AGE and took notes. The things that really resonated with me are the things I'll blog about here. I hope you will feel free to jump into this discussion on those topics, or throw in your own. The things that resonated with you might be different ones! And this book is filled with gems of woman-wisdom and girl power that deserve discussion. First, just in case you didn'
