Hibernation by mary elizabeth

So – due to holiday driven financial constraints plus a broken juicer part, I have been in a wintertime retreat from fitness and fasting.  There’s something about these cold dark days that makes curling up in bed with a full belly very attractive.   It’s been kind of nice, actually.  I mean, who doesn’t want [...]

Almost Xmas by mary elizabeth

Today it's officially winter and the winter holidays are upon us. I’m actually feeling kind of excited about Christmas being so close.  At least I am right now.  This morning I was feeling quite differently.  Sometimes it just seems like there’s so much pressure and so much to do.  Anyway, my morning got off to [...]

The Coveted Golden Spoon by mary elizabeth

 Last Friday, Living Light participated in the Fort Bragg Food Bank’s first annual soup and chili cook off.  And guess what?  We won!!  Our Corn and Sweet Potato Chowder beat all others – quite the vegan victory, if you ask me.  We were up against some local heavy hitters, too.  I’m so proud of Joe [...]

Speechless by mary elizabeth

For whatever reason, I’m having a hard time coming up with what to write about this week.  It’s not that I’m in a bad space, or can’t think of anything interesting to say about work.  I’m actually having a hard time motivating myself to write any words.  This is odd, because writing is just like [...]

Contented by mary elizabeth

Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy. Guillaume Apollinaire I read this quote this morning on facebook and thought, “What a good reminder”.  Of course, this is just the sort of thing that can send me into an angry little snit if I’m going through a [...]

Stop and Smell the Rose Oil by mary elizabeth

I just moved into the cutest new home.  It’s still being remodeled, so it’s a bit disorganized at the moment, but it’s going to be super cute and cozy soon.  The only really troubling part right now is, it doesn’t smell too good – some sewer venting problem.  I’m sure it’ll get sorted out but [...]

Ties of Love by mary elizabeth

So here we are in September.  The days are evening out and the stars are getting a little sparklier.  I love this time of year.  Traditionally, this is the warmest time of year here in Fort Bragg, but so far this year is pretty cold and wet.  Our students look cold, anyway.  I don’t think [...]

A Thousand Words by mary elizabeth

They say a picture speaks a thousand words.   As a writer and incessant talker, I’m not sure that’s always true.   But – I could try it.   Maybe I’ll designate a portion of my weekend to silence with a sketchpad - or a sketchpad and a giant bag of old magazines from which [...]

Inside, Outside by mary elizabeth

Dr. Dwayne W. Dyer says, “The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.”  Well fine.  I just hope he doesn’t pop over half an hour before we’re supposed to leave for school/work on any given morning.  My kids started school yesterday.  Another summer’s over.  Back to hectic [...]
