Alert…Getting Outside!


Alert…Getting Outside!   It is healthy!  Just an hour can be a wake-up call for us!  (Below … a visit to Ediz Hook}

Have you ever said to yourself, “I just don’t have time!”  There is just so much to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Do you remember that feeling?  I used to think like that many times as I was in the midst of some of many projects.

The last post, I wrote, presents such soothing music, “Somewhere in Time.”  When I play this it reminds me to live in the moment..and this is the only moment I have, right now, to connect with so many things…my work, my life…taking steps on my vision and dreams for the future.

I know and remind myself with words that I say to myself quite often…”Adele, It is what you do now, in this present moment, that will bring good things in the future.    Remember this!  All things will come in time.”  However, when my “here and now” seems to be a bit stressed, I try to take steps to unwind.  Nature is usually my answer.  Muir, Emerson, Thoreau and many others have written about our beloved outdoors and did not get it wrong.

So..When my “here and now” seems to be a bit stressed, I try to take steps to unwind.  Nature is usually my answer.  Muir, Emerson, Thoreau and many others have written about or beloved outdoors and did not get it wrong.

Do you have these feelings?  Come and take a break with me.  Join me for a moment…let’s go outside.  Let’s go to Ediz Hook!  Enjoy!

Have a Great Moment in Time today!


Campaign Spreadin’ Smiles


Ignite Smiles to Brighten Our World!  The choice is ours.  To me there are two ways of looking at this.

  • “Just Be!”  Don’t take part in the world around us
  • “Must Be Part of the World and make a difference!”  Making a difference is just bringing out that smile.

Smiles  cause such a ripple effect.  Feel that  you can help make a positive difference.    Make the decision to join us and challenge people to Smile and thank people in making a difference with their smile.  Smiles are contagious.  The Campaign “Spreadin’ A Smile” has begun. to Celebrate Smiles!

Join us !  Go to our Spreadin’ A Smile Blog where I blog on all types of things that make us smile.  You can be a champion in this campaign by spreading this initiative in your schools, businesses and in your private life.  I found that I never felt so good until I spent time looking for people who smile.  Found that I smile more as I meet new friends I never even knew existed or would not have even noticed.

This blog also provides ways of bringing out a smile when challenges appear when we feel like we are in the dumps.  We can be Resilient!  Tools are available.  You probably have some tools already however, learn about more even tricks that we might have right in our pocket.  Visit the Spreadin’ A Smile Blog!

We need you.  Let me know what role you could play within this initiative.  Have fun with us!  So click on this link….Spreadin A Smile Blog and join.  Also, register, here, at Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village.

Join our virtual family!  We are growing!  We welcome you to our special village, Brook N’ Dell. that has new roads and new sites coming your way.

Moments to Ponder


Hello to all!  As I begin to blog, today, I recall the main reason why I started posting thoughts back in 2010.  It was all around celebrating the present moment by taking action, sitting still for awhile, walking along the water’s edge, conversing with a friend or a colleague, creating a blog to impart some thoughts.  Well, that is just a list of where I might find myself or what I might be doing during the day.

As I read and learn more about “being” it all comes down to being in the present moment.  It is all we have.  It is the time on our journey that could set off a creative moment that will change a future moment.  Sometimes I am mislead by things.  Yes, things do come up don’t they however, it is around what we do and how we react to these things.  What I really should say is not how I react to things but  “act” on them.  Sometimes there are things which I need to ponder about before I act.  I have to remember I have choices here as I ponder.

So, with all the pondering that is going on in my head while I write I must make the choice to complete this thought and follow my day making it a good one.

I would love to hear about your special moments today.  So, whenever, you read this blog please ponder for a moment and let me know how your present day and moments are going.

You can either write a comment or email direct at  Love to hear from you!


ps -have some great music to listen to as you send me your special message.  Just scroll down to the last few blogs.  This music is inspiring to me and hope to you as well.

More Health Less Care by Dr. Pete Weiss

Nothing in the World Can Take Place of Persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.  Genius will not; unrewarded genius almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.  The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge

Dr. Pete Weiss motivates us to ‘Press On’ and take control of our health!
