Hi folks!  We’re out celebrating Labor Day, but we haven’t forgotten you.  This week we offer three old favorites for your reading enjoyment.  We’ll be back next week with more new posts.

This Post originally published September 14, 2009.


How can you streeeetch to become more flexible?

A friend of mine has become a serious part-time nature photographer. After having worked for several years in a highly left-brain technical field, he has put both sides of his brain together to create some beautiful art. In picking his equipment, he focused on all the technical doohickeys that make what he has great. Once he’s out in the wild, he gets caught up in the wonder of nature and records it at the rate of many frames per second. Then, he chooses which pictures of the many hundreds he took are suitable for publishing.

Send us some metaphors for your life, your trials and tribulations, your joys and your passions.

In my last post I shared a reader’s description of grief over significant personal losses:

Think of my grief as a wave and I’m on a surfboard. I must watch that I don’t lose my balance and become engulfed by the water. Water has power and can drown me. But I don’t want to drown, so I will stay on top of the wave of grief and let it carry me to the shore where I will be safe and feel stable. This wave will crash and I will have survived.  I will be stronger for having made it to shore unharmed. But I will never forget the ride.

Besides touching my heart, our reader demonstrated how potent Metaphor can be as a tool for understanding and working through our personal challenges.  Jose Ortega y Gasset, a prolific Spanish philosopher says this about metaphor: “[It] is perhaps one of man’s most fruitful potentialities. Its [power] verges on magic… a tool for creation which God forgot inside one of his creatures when he made him.”

I was really pleased when Ellie used a picture of Eeyore on her post because I’ve always liked Eeyore.  I guess that’s because he was soooo gray that he seemed funny to me.  I never really thought of him as being depressed or depressing.  He was so extreme that he was endearing, though I wouldn’t actually want to have to work or live with him.

Cup o’ Inspiration

Take a short break and consider the following:

“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.”
