We are all searching for the perfect place to visit, live in, or spend time. Most can stay where they are only briefly. Restlessness arise, curiosity about what’s around the corner. Deep inside there is a cry, “Get Me Out Of Here. I’ve had enough.” Had enough of what? We’re not sure, but it definitely […]

There is a well-documented phenomenon called The Pygmalion Effect. The name is derived from the mythical Greek character, Pygmalion, who had carved such a beautiful statue that he fell in love with it…and brought her to life.

Here I sit in this stately 19th century room wondering if our political systems and societal patterns will ever catch up with the demands of our time. When this building went up in 1848, slavery was still in full force with over 3 million slaves counted in the 1850 census. Some of them may have […]


From Criticism to Kindness by Donna Martini – Oyster Bay, NY

Sandy Feet

Instead of criticizing others for needing to escape to the beach or park, I say we meditate on and pray daily for what we each need to remain balanced and healthy. I assume I don’t know what that means for you, and neither does anyone in our government. I am in total agreement, though, about […]

Package labels for Viagra, Cialis, and other erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs should inform patients that ED is a sign of potentially fatal artery disease, according to a petition the Physicians Committee filed with the Food and Drug Administration in February.
