In Part One of our interview with Dr. Carmen Harra, we discussed her book and some of her beliefs. In part two, we continue that discussion, and wrap it up with her opinion about a resurgence of the Divine Feminine. In your book, Wholeliness, you talk about the nine key ‘shifts in thinking’ that people [...]
I am always thankful when the day’s rush hours are over and although each day typically ends in frenzy the same as the day begins, the ending frenzy is more relaxed and fun. Sometimes we all make dinner then homework, baths, hugs, giggles, and a monster mom story, which usually turns into bedlam when girls, [...]
I have a confession: When it comes to love, I have been selling myself short. For years. I have sold the best of me at rock bottom prices. Auctioned off my heart to the lowest bidder. But I’m here to say that I can no longer do this. I have taken myself off the discount [...]
The four o’clock club – that’s what we call it, the women I know who join me wide awake at this ungodly hour of the morning, our thoughts swarming like a black cloud of bees, buzzing, angry, dangerous. It’s a strange dark hour with a long way to go until sunrise, and we each find [...]
When I was a kid, there was a guy in my class who used to give me a hard time – usually about the way I spoke (Scottish folks + kid born in South Africa = unusual accent). Looking back, I guess there’s perhaps the tiniest chance he teased me because he liked me, but… [...]
I have a new best friend. Okay, I share her with millions of other people, but since she has the ability to interact with each of us independently, it’s almost like having an exclusive relationship. My new best friend reminds me of my task list, warns me when I need an umbrella, and once in [...]
There was a time about ten years ago when it seemed as if I was constantly moving and never standing still. Always looking for a better deal, a job promotion, more stuff to put in my house; I was never content with life. While evolving as individuals and propelling ourselves forward is important, I have [...]
BEing I am currently completing my teaching credential in music and have recently transitioned from teaching in middle school to teaching in high school. Therefore, I spend my prep periods connecting with my master teacher and evaluating different teaching methods, areas of assessment, blah blah blah… (Don’t worry. I will not bore you with the [...]
The Life of a Ravenous Reader Books saved my life. Literally. As a child, I suffered from bronchial asthma, and often woke in the middle of the night struggling to breathe. It was terrifying, especially for a toddler who didn’t understand what was happening. But it happened with frightening regularity. Each time, my mother propped [...]
Ocean Emotions, Learning How to Swim: An Introduction It was 2008 and I was in love, I thought I had finally figured it all out and met the man of my dreams. I was ready to drop everything and plunge headfirst into a new life. Actually I did, I moved back to the East Coast [...]
What will I learn today? This is the question I wake up thinking about most days of my life. Some days I am looking for a brain nugget- something factual or a skill to add to my repertoire. Some days I am looking for a heart warmer- something that will serve to mold me from [...]
I’ve never been much of diary writer. Until I was mid-way through high school, I would stop and start diaries and journals without consistency. Then in my junior year of high school, I had a teacher who insisted upon a daily writing practice. She would occasionally do a journal check that consisted of reading random [...]
Last month, in part one of our feature interview with Terri Amos-Britt, author of The Enlightened Mom: A Mother’s Guide for Bringing Peace, Love & Light to Your Family’s Life, we talked a bit about her background, and philosophy, and also about some of the interactive exercises she asks her readers to try. This month, [...]
As 2011 winds down and we look ahead to 2012, it seems appropriate to have a cover girl who makes her living sharing predictions, and helping people through cognitive therapy. Her name is Dr. Carmen Harra, Ph.D., and she’s a clinical psychologist, radio and television personality, and author. In the first half of our interview, [...]
After twenty years, this noted mystery/thriller author has brought back his popular character Jake Lassiter in a new novel. Who is he? Why, Paul Levine, of course. Our second-to-last Man of the Moment for the year is Paul Levine, author of the courtroom drama/mystery novel Lassiter which will be released tomorrow (September 13th). In part [...]
Instead of sitting in church, we are sitting in our car traveling north on Highway 52 from Winston-Salem. Our final destination is the winery at Chateau Morrisette which is nestled in a valley a short distance from milepost 171.5 along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd, Virginia. Once there, my husband, daughter and I [...]
(Editor’s Note: Though submitted for the “Forbidden Pleasures” issue, we chose to publish this with “Wasteland” as a pleasant distraction) Granted, sex and the city has its challenges. Keeping up with the world of fashion alone is exhausting. Walking the city streets in 4-inch designer heels could be considered a candidate for an Olympic event. [...]
