I call Peanut my son but it’s no secret that we aren’t the same species. In being different species, we have different needs. His diet should be 80% grass hay; mine should be 0% hay. He should have unlimited access to hay. I also have unlimited access to hay, but it’s mostly in my shoes… Continue reading Hungry?
I was on the way to meditation class Friday night and my tire pressure light came on. The car seemed to be driving fine and I was halfway to class so I stayed attentive to the feel of the drive (which is technically what we’re supposed to do when we drive anyway… there was a… Continue reading Screwed?
Napoleon Hill wrote, “The whole world is undergoing a change of such stupendous proportions that millions of people have become panic-stricken with worry, doubt, indecision, and fear!” in 1938. Nineteen-Thirty-Eight. One Nine Three Eight. Do we know people who are in that mode now in 2018? Two-Thousand-Eighteen? Two Zero One Eight? So, have we not… Continue reading Stall-Out?
On this, the eve of the two year anniversary of my dear friend's passing, I'm re-posting the story I wrote about her, about us, the day after she left this mortal coil. Before you read this, please call or text that one person you've been meaning to reach out to. Take that time. Even if… Continue reading Two Years Gone

Several weeks ago, Maddie developed an abscess on the bottom of her back paw. Maddie and Teddy’s mom sought immediate… Continue reading Maddie and Teddy

An afternoon in July of 2014, I sat… Continue reading Ella and Monkey
Sunday morning. I’ve been out as a morning person for quite some time now. Even the word morning sends a tingle through me. Know thyself and embrace those strengths. Just before these manicured fingers began to dance across the keyboard, I was listening to a podcast recorded by my teacher Gabrielle Bernstein, available through her… Continue reading Vortex of Appreciation
I’m telling on myself today. A friend who is relatively new to the DB Fam called me yesterday. For every ounce Out There, Open and Tell It Like It Is that I am, she is Reserved, Private and Keep It to Yourself in counterbalance. I take our new-found friendship not only as a treasure but… Continue reading I’m Telling
Alternate title: How We are Crushing Our Goals As I write this, the Rescue group with which I volunteer is processing its 40th adoption in 2018. 40. 4-0. In 2016, we completed 51 adoptions. For 2017, we set a goal of 52 adoptions; we completed 55. For 2018, we set a goal of 56. Here… Continue reading The Great Slow Down
On the last Monday in March, I paid a special visit to a special little boy. Quick backstory: Cameron was rescued with four other rabbits right before Halloween. He was adopted shortly after the New Year and returned right before Valentine’s Day. We don’t get many returns (thankfully). Cameron had fallen ill and his adopters… Continue reading Cameron
