Too many of us are getting divorced.  I wonder what the problem is.  The first thing is that we probably love ourselves far more than we love other people.  But I wonder, too, if the problem with so many of us getting divorced is our rushing into marrying the wrong freakin' person. I have a few important questions to ask. When you took that leap, and you fell in love, were there red flags waving before you let your emotions get the best of you?  Have you considered the idea that you can fall in love with the wrong person? Wrong person?  Ok, well, here's what I think in terms of the wrong person. Someone is wrong for you if: 1)You do not love them for who they are in the moment that you fall in love with them.  You love them for their potential.  This is TERRIBLE.  Run.  Now!  While your brain is still...

You know those people in your life who are so intense that conversation with them can sometimes be exhausting? They have insight and wisdom, but the weight of complexity around their neck can loop you in for a descent to the bottom of the ocean? You know those people in your life who are really light-hearted about most things, so much that you wonder if they've ever put their head under water? They can brighten a moment, bring a smile and laughter, but they give you no reason to take a deep breath? When you think about it, do you find yourself at either extreme? Scuba-Steve or Rubber Ducky? I catch myself more frequently swimming in the depths, but I also notice that I need to splash around the surface to remain sane. The truth is, I think we need to be able to do both. The most enjoyable people...

You have a friend named Benny.  You totally love Benny.  But sometimes you think he's a hypocrite.  This is what happens. You and Benny will be chillin', and he'll look over at your mutual friend, Stu, who's jumping around and being silly with some other mutual friends, and say, "Stu is so annoying.  He needs to calm down."  You don't say much.  You just listen.  You conclude that Benny must think that jiggly-jaggly jumpiness is not an acceptable form of behavior (because who wants to be annoying, right?). Two days later, when Benny has a little bit more energy (he drank his greens), he's now among the jiggly-jagglers, jumping around and being silly.  You think, "Hmmm, I could have sworn he said that was annoying...

When I was a child, I had a vision of myself in the future. It was a sunny afternoon in Montreal.  I was in the back seat of my mom's Ford. I must have been really little because gazing out the window required looking up. We were driving down Montrose, and then it happened. Just as we passed Westhill, a scene began playing in my mind. I saw myself before a crowd of people, but I'm not sure how large it was. I stood before them, but I stood for them, and I yearned for justice.  From my mouth came six words, and now that I understand who Martin Luther King Jr. is, I was a little bit like him. "Do we not have the rrright???...

I was unable to control my emotions last night, as I sang through the penetrating lyrics of JJ Heller's, What Love Really Means: "Who will love me for me? Not for what I have done or what I will become? Who will love me for me? 'Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means...
