Stargazing Angel Interview With Dr. Allison Brown

I met Dr. Allison Brown at a grand opening party of a local community center.  When I learned that she was looking for Reiki volunteers for a program called Reiki for Vets, I quickly signed on.  I now share this amazing healing experience with others, including disabled military veterans and their families in the Charleston,

Why? (or, rebelliousness as a virtue)

One of my favorite questions is “Why?” Unfortunately, people don’t really like that question. Educators are not supposed to ask “why”…they are just supposed to DO. Bosses don’t like, “why,” either. Believe it or not, they find it confrontational. Husbands are frequently annoyed by “why.” Especially when there is no easy answer (sorry, Bill).

Creativity, Part II (or, the sandbox is not just for kids)

Remember last week, when I wrote that ideas start to flow as we tap into our innate creativity? Well, there’s a reason for that. Carl Jung, the famous psychologist known for his theory of the Collective Unconscious, believed that not only does each human being have an individual psyche, there also exists a collective,

Creativity, Part I (or, where are those damn knitting needles?)

I used to think there were only two kinds of people in the world – those who were creative and those who were not. Until recently, I would have told anyone who asked that I fell squarely into the second camp. I can’t draw, I’m not particularly crafty, I don’t play an instrument, and

Making Sense of the Universe (or, musings of a lunatic)

My son is a big fan of Neil Degrasse Tyson, American astrophysicist, author, and science communicator. For a school project, Evan created some laminated bookmarks, on which were written various quotes from famous scientists, like Tyson.  Of course, being an avid reader, I absconded with the bookmarks as soon as he brought them back

On Life After Death (or, calling all Psyc majors!)

Ok all you fellow Psyc majors, I know you’ve heard of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, MD, and her book, On Death and Dying. As any good Psychology major knows, Kubler-Ross is famous for identifying the five stages of grief (death): denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Truth be told, Kubler-Ross didn’t set out to find these

Love is the Point (or, baby goats are so darn cute!)

I just watched an insanely adorable video about Leanne Lauricella and her Goats of Anarchy. Leanne rescues and rehabs baby goats who have injuries or birth defects, many of whom would otherwise be euthanized. When Leanne quit a good job in New York City to pursue her passion, people called her crazy! They wondered

Synchronicity (or, how I was traded for a bag of McDonald’s food)

I married my high school sweetheart during my second year of college. As you may have guessed it wasn't the wisest decision I’ve ever made, and it was a difficult four years. However, when all was said and done, I wound up back in my hometown of Wilmington, NC, which actually worked in my
