I drove to Brooklyn and back, all by myself. I brought my passport, just in case they checked at the border and gave some cute stamp. But enough about me—this is about Maddie and Teddy. 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
In Rescue life, I find myself saying no very often. And it’s not a struggle for me. I attribute that to my logical, black-and-white, organized nature. We don’t have a shelter facility; all of our rabbits are fostered in private homes. Thus, we can’t do anything unless someone can offer a space in their own… Continue reading No.
Two more wake-ups until I return to the day job so you’d think my mind would be there… but in my endless quest to be present and be mindful, I’m just here now. In deciding what to share with you all today, I was searching for some sort of “Summer’s over…” moment, but I don’t… Continue reading What it takes… and gives.
One of my classic B-isms: Not everything is for everybody. Reiki is such a strong example of that. It’s subjective. It’s situational. It’s suited for some, or from some and not for others, from others or between others. Like a massage—what feels good for me might not be what you need. Or choosing a meal… Continue reading Be Open… or Not.
2016 has been cleaning house (in the metaphorical sense. Literally, however, my house is a mess and my desk is back to its disastrous state). We (the collective We) lost Bowie, Prince, Chyna, Eli Weisel (potential the first time they’ve been listed in sequence anywhere)… I’m so parenthetical today. We (the rabbit We) have lost… Continue reading What’s Important…
I describe myself as highly routinized. For my own good, I’ve loosened up a bit over the past few years and more markedly, over the past few months. I do attribute my massive success (and I define success as happiness and daily bliss) to my habits and patterns. This way of life, as rigid as… Continue reading Rituals
I thought I was going to write about something completely different today… But as I sat down, clicked the diffuser on and powered up the laptop, I realized I hadn’t tore off today’s calendar page. I have a Dr. Wayne Dyer page-a-day calendar on the mess I call a desk. I usually tear the page… Continue reading On Purpose
My mother never let me have pets other than Betta fish. My Betta Bonus lived 5 or 6 years and traveled back and forth from Connecticut to home on every college break. I was never much of an animal person anyway. After college, but still living home, I asked if I could get a rabbit. … Continue reading Dear Mom…
I advise everyone, yes everyone, who asks for coaching, mentorship or just plain advice from me to meditate. And yet, my practice of meditation is less than consistent! Since I was on vacation from my “day job” this week, I took the opportunity to talk the talk AND walk the walk… or should we say… Continue reading Hop the Hop
The celebrity world isn’t the only one rocked by loss in 2016. This weekend alone, 2 beautiful bunny girls made their journey over the Rainbow Bridge (the favored euphemism for passing away… another euphemism, just more common), 2 very different girls, both fitting of a tribute here as they taught me to believe in bunnies… Continue reading Somewhere Over the Rainbow
