The State of Prude

from the archives 2005 Had a thought today: What good is it to be a prude? I really can’t help but to ask such a question. Let’s examine this word, this character; the prude. Definition of prude is: excessively (often affectedly) squeamish or sexually modest person. Hmm, not a very promising existence. So much of our society has stifled our sexuality and all the pleasures, responsibilities, hurts and all, that it’s no wonder we’re so […]

Things Worth Fighting For

Love is the first item at the top of the list, as it always seems to be a central core to what gets discussed. However, this gets to it from a different angle. Your worth fighting for. Love starts at home, we all know and understand this, even if we don’t all come from perfect homes. Heck, as adult parents, we judge ourselves pretty harshly too.

Mind Emotional Human Potential: Sink or Grow Rich

If you ever caught a wild creature to keep in a cage, you will […]

My Mojo is Back | Get Your Poke On

It’s 4:30 in the morning and I should be in bed. Instead, I connected online to my boss, Riel, a guy I really like. Liking people, for the most part, comes pretty easily. Then we get to know each other and the like-factor diminishes. It might catch you off guard to hear this, and if you consider it you might recognize how new people drift out just as quickly when the chemistry doesn’t jive. This […]

Afraid of Flying? Opportunity for Adventure is Lost

I saw this video today, following a weekend coaching seminar, and the effect of the video was pronounced with more meaning considering the seminar’s explorations. As I look at the inspiration and ideas that have brightened my eyes over the years, there have equally been many dark storm clouds causing me to batten down the hatches instead of venturing into the unknown. These storm clouds are creations from my own mind, fraught with worries, fears, […]
