VIGILANCE

VIGILANCE

We are now six months into a pandemic that has no end in sight. We are all tired of the disruption. Fatigue definitely has set in. People are letting their guards down, and not just those defiant souls. It’s no wonder we’re seeing spikes in many states. With cold weather months and the flu season coming soon, continued vigilance is key to keeping ourselves, our loved ones and our communities safe. The simple things that we tend to overlook due to fatigue — hand washing, donning masks, physical distancing, avoiding large indoor gatherings — all remain just as important today as they have been throughout.

We cannot afford to let our guard down, especially as others around us lapse in their responsibility to do so. And, we cannot afford to let our immune systems become fatigued. I recently read an article sponsored by Global Healing. I want to share its message with you, as it is vital that we all continue to get the word out, repeatedly, consistently.

Most of us approach life in a very linear way; it appears to be moving us forward. It’s as if we’re all on a long moving sidewalk, like those in large airports. Some of us stand, some walk. We really don’t contemplate the choice before we step on – habits take over. Kids will try to playfully race against it, carefree and unencumbered by baggage, smiling when they get back to the point at which they entered. Some just stand on the side and watch people go by; a metaphor for watching life pass before their eyes. It really doesn’t matter what we do while on it, or so we think; it moves us forward nonetheless.

People, of course, are an inspiration in writing articles such as this on a regular basis - what they do, how they think and who they are. As is art, in all forms, especially songs. Donning headphones, I listened to a few different and stirring renditions of “The Prayer” with music by David Foster and lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager. David described this as “a song that I just never get tired of playing, I never get tired of hearing it. And it seems to mean a lot to a lot of people. It’s a powerful piece of music. I think it came through me and I think Carole’s lyric is beautiful. It was a moment—that song was a moment for sure.” CLICK ON THE TITLE ABOVE TO CONTINUE READING

Just as real momentum was gaining on climate change discussions among the informed, the world lay crippled by Coronavirus. Suddenly with hundreds of millions of lives immediately at risk, the focus necessarily shifted. Climate change discussions and policy considerations were put on the back burner.

Two long-time business associates who had become friends at some point along the way, sat at a quiet corner table fully engaged in conversation. We carved out this time from busy schedules to be together and we approached it eagerly and with anticipation. There is great respect, professionally and personally between us. Enough respect to have devoted this time just to talk, to listen, to share and, in that moment, to be there with and for one another. [Please click on the title above to continue reading.]

I will get down on my knees and pray. My hands are folded reverently in front of me. I stare at them. They’re not yours, they are my own. What is it that they did today, these hands? What do they say about my day, about me? [PLEASE CLICK ON THE TITLE ABOVE TO CONTINUE READING]

“So, here’s the thing”, she said. “The real demarcation between the end of one day and the beginning of the next is 3:37 am, not midnight. That’s the time when all stragglers from the night before are off the roads and the farmers and bakers are just starting their day.” OK, so admittedly this is the perspective shared with me by a patrol officer working the graveyard shift.

diet \ di·et \ n … derived from the Greek word diaita meaning “way of living” 2: something provided or experienced repeatedly

The Mediterranean Diet is one of the healthiest, most practical eating plans out there. While the foods are essential, they’re responsible for only a part of the health benefits. It’s the way of living part that is equally beneficial and often overlooked. For those of you who say “just tell me what to eat”, you can stop reading right here.

It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that the studies for nutritional labeling were initiated by our government during World War II to assure that military personnel would receive ‘superior nutrition’! Today, the terms are dizzying – Estimated Average Requirements, Recommended Dietary Allowances, Adequate Intake, Tolerable Upper Intake Levels, Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Ranges, Dietary Reference Values and on and on.
