Fat – Word or Weapon?

I was talking with someone I care about recently, and the conversation took an interesting turn. "I?m so fat? he said. Immediately my heart sank; my body did a reflexive shudder. ?No, you?re not.? Don?t say that?, was my immediate response. It was automatic, as though...

Part 2: Tending to Your Inner Child

On Finding Balance: Learning To Love The Seasons

On Finding Balance: Learning To Love The Seasons

Lately, a deep desire for stillness has entered my life. I don?t want to hustle. I don?t want to slay anything. I don?t want to engage in any of the culture's current messages that suggest that intensity equates to progress or value. I firmly find myself rejecting all...
