  1. I thought of something else-If I was going to be a Quality Therapist, then I should be a Power of example, then in order to promote Therapy, then I better take that same advice! Having been subjected to early Divorce proceedings, I was forced to see a Therapist via Civil Court which turned out to be the Best happening in my Life; I stuck with Virginia Pomeroy for a solid 2 years never missing a Session; I admired and respected her cause she had a strong Christian Faith whom I respected! It turned out one day prior to terminating with her, she said to me very earnestly: "I want to tell yo

  4. I need to clarify this Image; my Dear Friend, Denise's (Her Greek name is Despina) Mom just passed way this week at age 65; I shared the Metta Prayer with her; she was happy I shared with her, so she decided to make up her own version of the Prayer! The Prayer cards are for her Mom's Funeral on Monday; the Religious Icon derives from her Greek Orthodoxy background; the Greeks are known to have many Icons in their Churches. May her Mom, Barbara Davidopoulos, RIP! Whatever your persuasion, please extend some Loving Kindness to Despina, her Family, and her Mom. Thank you.

  6. RAIN can be quite profound, especially if we feel we are in a slump, especially in these Covid times...sometimes, the "I" may feel quite preculiar. I caught myself listening to Katherine May's "How Wintering Replenishes" Podcast...and inquiring, what does that feel like to me? I need to complete listening to that...she is diagnosd with Adult Autism...how can that be I thought...she has a College degree! It's almost like a form of Cognitive dissonance...to be explored more as I continue her Podcast.:)
  7. Great Posts, All! Hmmm...a couple of my Firsts: I wanted to be a Dr. Second: cant remember the date tho was recently...LOL! Many lessons...when I previously worked in a Detox program I was arguing with a Female client until my Friend, Lana, the RN spotted me and motioned me immediately into the Conference room, and reminded me in 30 Secs or less how sick these Patients are and I should know better...that was my first Real Lesson in Compassion; BTW...I found myself in my Supervisor's office time and time again prior to this; the Theme, was always the same!-"Compassion" After Lana's i
  8. Hi Steve and all! Great thread here; right up my alley as I sit in admiration wanting to Teach in Healthcare; more later...I am wondering if we could start a Corporate Subgroup, just sayin' We were kicking around different ideas with Sean today! I definitely want consult with y'all! In any case, Steve, funny thing about "Multitasking", In Daniel Goleman & Dr. Richard Davidson's Book, Altered Traits, they say: "Attention tasks don't really go on in parallel, as 'multitasking implies, instead they demand rapid switching from one thing to the other. And following every such swi
