I know how tough it is to move beyond our comfort zone. Being uncomfortable is not pleasant. We do almost anything to avoid discomfort. However, beautiful things come from challenging ourselves to learn and grow because you and I are alive to become the best version of ourselves.  

  • We must face our fears and defeat them.
  • We must courageously turn and face our past rather than run from it.
  • We must push ourselves to be the best we can ...

    I sit down with Kristen Cannata, a mother of two young boys, to discuss how she navigates the world of parenting in the age of technology and bullies. She talks about the need for children to appreciate that the interactions they have with people, animals, and the natural world are always more satisfying and important than an iPhone, TV, computer, or iPad.  And how essential it is for children to learn how to treat others as they w...

    I sit down with Nicole Stanton, actress, and producer, to discuss how she navigates the male-dominated world of Hollywood where using sex to sell still seems to be the lowest common denominator. She talks about how the industry is changing its views of women, slowly and how consumers can drive change by supporting independent films that feature women. Nicole also offers advice for women who are navigating the confusing world of dat...

    I sobbed in a homeless man’s arms. I did not know the man. Most likely I will not see him again. But, I will never forget the moment our hearts touched in the intimate dance of raw truth: he lives on the street and me in a warm apartment.

    Our exchange began when I commented on his dog. He smiled very proud and said, “Yea, she's great. I've got her back and she's got mine.” As he spoke, gently petting the dog, I reached ...

    In this episode I sit down with Eren Cannata, Emmy winning songwriter, singer, and producer to get his thoughts on what it means to be a man. A father of two sons, Eren believes the old blueprint of what it means to be a man needs to be revised. And, while some people are scared of change, his experience as a man who embraces change in the form of respect and acceptance of all people, has resulted in a freer and healthier life.

    In my conversation with Chris Pelch, husband, father and full-time graduate student, we learn that he thinks men are often characterized as macho, hard-headed, and stubborn and there is good reason for this portrayal. He sees that many men dig in their heels when it comes to their opinions. But Chris thinks it’s a mistake for men to ignore the perspectives of others. He believes men should not bulldoze their way forward.  Chris sha...

    When we think of free speech we immediately think of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. We do have the constitutional right to free speech. Yet, just because we have the right to say what we want, doesn’t mean there isn’t a cost to what we say.

  • Too often we take our right of free speech for granted without understanding we have an equal responsibility for the consequences.
  • We can’t ignore the fact that how we com...

    What is most important about being American is that we stand united on the common beliefs of our representative democracy. To do so we must remember the first President, George Washington and other founders of our country, justifiably feared the likelihood of corruption and abuse of power that would arise from two-party divisiveness.

  • A constant jockeying for ruling power creates an environment where cooperation is impossible and in...

    … is a reality for all of us no matter where we live, or how old we are, or if we’re female or male. When we have been abused, used, belittled and made to feel less than, we must learn to keep our heart open in order to heal. We have an opportunity to lead the way in righting the wrongs we see in the world by changing ourselves and our families so our part of the world changes.

    Leonardo Da Vinci was a genius. He is loved not only for The Mona Lisa but also for The Last Supper, the most reproduced religious painting of all time. We also adore the work of his contemporary Michelangelo whose sculptures of the David and the Pieta are divinely inspired masterpieces. Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo were amazing artists that continue to make the world better for their having lived.

    Growing up in the southern part of the United States during the 1960s I was surrounded by white supremacy and privilege. I’m gay so I know how it feels to be considered and treated less than. Yet, as a gay woman, I go through life with the choice of being out or not and being white I walk through life unaware of my color. My dark skin brothers and sisters still do not have this freedom.

    Okay, I imagine you’re saying to yourself, “Hey, this lasagna lady is nuts.”  I get it since close encounters of the third kind are highly suspect. Unless of course, you are discussing the matter with Giorgio A. Tsoukalos or Erich von Däniken. But, if you’re not a fan of Ancient Aliens or have not read Chariots of the Gods, my experience will seem odd. You’d certainly have doubts if the only aliens you’ve encountered are in movies ...

    Mom recently told me she read a letter to the editor in her local newspaper about yoga being the work of the devil.  At almost 94 mom is not really surprised by much but she seemed quite surprised to learn some people believe yoga is related to Satan. Really? And who are the people who believe yoga is related to the Devil and why do they believe it? I’m curious because I’ve been doing yoga for over fifteen years and not once have I...

    Honestly and with all modesty I can say my lasagna is to die for. I don’t mean my lasagna will literally kill you. Heavens NO! The expression “it’s to die for” means something is fantastic, incredible, magnificent, and in the case of food over the top delicious. And my lasagna should be first-rate, an award-winning stack of deliciousness because I’ve spent the past 45 years mastering the recipe.
