Whoa, What?!

My credit for this guy is a bit overdue (since the article was posted in April 2014).  This man is beyond an inspiration; he undertook something he knew absolutely nothing about and revolutionized a product for women in dire need.  To be as determined and diligent as he was in this, “he nearly lost his family, his money and his place in society.”

I cannot speak for us all, but I’d say it’s a mighty fine day when a man (your own husband, nonetheless) is willing to go to these lengths to improve your life and health, and ends up a revolutionary.  I have to add that since he is uneducated, “He says he is not working brain to brain but heart to heart.”  Pure Awesome.

We The People…



I found this video of theirs to be of particular interest, given the current situation and actual facts.

Because some do not fully understand, I’ll link to this article here,
and include this one as well.

And because I believe in humor, I will also share this article….  which in reality isn’t really all that funny as much as it is saddening.  Of course, this is only the tip of an iceberg – I encourage any and everyone to read.  Find the sources that are reliable, and read.

My “A-Hole”



I had written an intro entry here but truthfully, I deleted it and found the video on YouTube to insert instead 🙂  Love everything about this read, and more women should be like Karen, putting it all out there and saying F-it to those who judge.  She also has a blog which I haven’t explored but I’m sure is good.
Blessedly, I have only one a-hole, and it is located on my body.  I say that now, will update as she gets older lol -Highly recommend this read for any (and all) parents out there 🙂

Crap.  it’s been a little too silent as I wrote this post……..   …….nevermind, the horse just neighed and she’s not screaming: we’re good.




Power vs Force

The first thing I have to say about this book is that you have to be ready for it.

I had it for a few years before I could actually read it all the way through.  Sound funny?  Yea, even I realize it kinda does..  Well, I attempted it a few times but it just wasn’t my time to “get” it; it will let you know when you should read it!  It is excellently written, and intensely intriguing.  I heard a friend of mine speak of it in conversation one day while visiting in Sanibel (his father is a Kinesiologist -this really piqued my interest) so I made a mental note of it -soon after which I purchased it.  Then it sat upon my shelf for quite some time.

As the title implies, it is the idea of Power vs Force – and the actual difference between the two; supported by his knowledge as a psychiatrist,  Dr. Hawkins (MD!) uses theoretical concepts from particle physics, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos theory to support his study of human behavior.  Like I said, it’s something you have to be ready for : )

It is a very powerful read, it will take some time to digest, and it can change your life.

I will be re-reading it soon after I finish Intimations of Infinity (but that’s a post for later time!).  I cannot begin to explain more about it, but I do encourage for you to check into it and find out more, and to simply see if it would be something of interest to you (click the image!).  As I come back around to it, I will make another post with more comments, etc.

(As you will come to find, I highly admire Mother Teresa…  needless to say an amazing and inspirational human being.. she commented about this work:

“A beautiful gift of writing… (You) spread joy, love, and compassion through what you write. The fruit of these three is peace, as you know…”

Templeton/Nobel Peace Prize recipient, anointed Blessed Teresa. –Just sayin.)

**On a side note…  and as this cover may beg: are we “defined” by our opposite?..  Do opposites really attract?..  food for further thought.


Ayn Rand

I’ve read two of Ms. Rand’s books so far, and I have a few more on my shelf that I will get to at some point.  The two I read are two of her most notorious:  The Fountainhead & Atlas Shrugged.  Really enjoyed these two novels, as they were riveting, thought-provoking, and just wonderful to devour.  She was an enormous believer in [her] philosophy of Objectivism.

She very much enjoys delving into page-long descriptions, hence why some of her novels are as huge as they are..?  some of which I admittedly omitted, although not detrimental to grasping the main theme and enjoying the novels.

Click the following to read more about this author, and about her works (they do a much better job than I ever could in giving more info):
The Ayn Rand Institute

She was a very interesting individual indeed, and definitely inspired me to go after my dreams.

The first read of hers to enter my hands was The Fountainhead.  I found someone else who blogged about nothing but reads, and they did a pretty good job of describing the book.. click the image to the right:



Afterwards, I read Atlas Shrugged..  another amazing novel.  Highly recommend it as well – click the image to go to the website.
