Unless you live in Antartica (the only continent not touched by COVID-19 yet), you've come to realize that we are living during frenzied times to combat a novel and often lethal virus at the moment; thus, essential items at the grocery and drug stores are very scarce....

I often refer to growing up in the small town of La Palma, CA, where the only highschool is John F. Kennedy High, home of the Fighting Irish. If you blink, you just might miss the city La Palma, but football at Kennedy High was a big thing back in my day. There was eve...

When many of us want to recharge and rejuvenate our souls, we often head to nature. For those of us who live close enough to an ocean, we find healing by the sea. What is it about the ocean that soothes our world-weary souls?

          The answer can be found in science...

Food has magical powers. Reading fairytales will tell you this. The hero or heroine in any story is empowered in their epic journey, by food!

      When consumed in moderation, food can both strengthen and transform us physically and soulfully since...

So often I've heard friends say, "I no longer watch the news because all I see is bad/stuff." That's not such a bad idea. Yet, we do live in a world where positive and negative occurrences exist. However, we now know through research in psychology that we are and becom...
