Tapping Into Genius - Relax and look straight ahead

Everyone knows the feeling of juggling multiple tasks with limited time. It is in those moments that it is easy to feel overwhelmed, get frustrated, and start acting less than our fabulous selves with the people around us. That is why it is important to learn to relax our minds, look straight ahead, and take the next available action. The latter two steps can be easier than the first. However, relaxing allows us to access the support that is all around us, and realize that things are always better than our anxious thoughts would have us believe.

Culinary Culver City - Hidden Garden Thai Cuisine a found treasure

Taking time away brings clarity and allows bad habits, born of repetition and fatigue, to drop away.

Perennial Favorite Musical ‘Beauty and the Beast’ entertains families in Boyle Heights

It is always a joy to be in an audience with many young children attending their first big Broadway musical, whether it is a big professional production or a more modest community based production. Just watching the wonder on their faces always reminds me how the magic of live theater will encourage many young audience members to appear onstage during their lifetimes, just as it did mine at the age of six.

The Long View by Pat Grimes - Encounter with a wild deer has writer feeling quite lucky

This time of year, it can be difficult to keep up. Besides arrangements for gift giving, there are holiday get-togethers with coworkers, friends, or family, and all of this on top of the necessity of getting to and from work. Needless to say, this situation has you, me, and everyone we know scurrying everywhere, filling the roads and keeping each other from efficiently completing our appointed rounds.
