You’ve heard of Sean Orr’s vast internet empire, Don’t Dad. Say Hello to Do Dad: And you wonder why everyone’s scrambling to get off of Facebook and onto Google+!

This about says it all. Hi Mom!

momo’s call to action

September 4, 2007


If you’re at all serious about making positive change in your life, and doing it now, rather than in some faint, far-off perhaps never to be realized distant wonderland, you should watch this video. Now. :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: ::

video meditation: handling suppression and judgement

August 27, 2007


I like this series of videos; alas, their blog seems not to be updating much lately, in addition to being in a template too narrow to display YouTubes properly. As usual, I’ve put the video over the jump so it doesn’t slow the blog down for people on dialup. This is a good basic meditation, […]

life advice from dead people: F. Scott Fitzgerald

August 1, 2007


Hey, some of them were pretty smart, for dead people. Take F.Scott Fitzgerald here: he wrote what many consider to be the Great American Novel (everyone who doesn’t consider it to be Huck Finn, that is). And he also wrote these very wise little precepts for his daughter, which I borrowed from One Little Detail’s […]

blogging services for recovery

July 30, 2007


There are many reasons to blog: keeping in touch with friends, sharing your expertise, publishing your own stories without waiting for the publishing world’s permission, or chronicling your own journey, whether metaphorical or geographical. Those fighting chronic illnesses have many compelling reasons to blog. They can trace their reactions to different treatments, get their feelings […]

quiz: is your family toxic?

June 15, 2007


Again, not the world’s deepest quiz, but useful nonetheless. After all, you already know the answer, deep-down. Sometimes you need to go a roundabout route to look at something that’s right in front of you; we all need to warm up to such things. Get the code in HTML at the end if you want […]

rilke: relationships and distance

June 7, 2007


Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.

firing your friends

June 7, 2007


Oh, not all of them. But, just as yesterday we covered how to know when to quit your job, we sometimes have to consider when to quit relationships. I’m an accommodator, myself, and generally prefer to fix up bad relationships rather than delete them, and sometimes I fix them and fix them and fix them […]

who is ‘us?’

May 30, 2007


Now here’s someone you generally don’t hear a lot from in self-help circles: MTV and Entertainment Tonight television personality Vanessa Minnillo. If this is the kind of sense she usually makes, I wouldn’t mind hearing more from her (which is a lesson to those of us with tendencies to write off television-presenting former beauty queens). from the March, 2006 […]

interview: the happiness myth

May 28, 2007


This is a very enlightening interview with Dr. Jennifer Michael Hecht, author of The Happiness Myth: Why What We Think Is Right Is Wrong, from Psychjourney Podcasts (and welcome to the blogroll; it’s a very helpful site, especially for those who like to listen rather than read). There are a lot of good points in […]
