Notes from Steve

Four dogs rushed me as if to bite me, last night on my run at 7PM. The owners ran after the dogs as if embarrassed. I just stood still and fortunately didn’t get bit. I think I shrieked a bit when I reminded them of the leash law … sigh....

Notes from Steve

In the five stages of grief* the stage of bargaining is the one that resonates the most with me. I think it is more 5 stages of change because we, as humans, experience all the stages with most everything we do. Luckily, most of these stages are quickly experienced, but...

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

For Our Own Good “I’m telling you this for your own good,” can be difficult words to hear. They should also be difficult words to say. Have those words ever been directed at you? After all, who wants to be criticized no matter how good the intention? It’s unlikely that...
