Chocolate-coated fruit spells r-0-m-a-n-c-e.

What a great surprise to pull out of the refrigerator, in your romantic dinner for two.

Even a tender nibble brings the sweet juices of cherry, strawberry, or raspberry, encased in the thin waiting sheath of dark chocolate. What is it about chocolate and red fruit that seems so decadent? Maybe it’s the balance between the fruit’s quick sweetness with chocolate’s long-lasting, brain-altering addictions that so resemble love itself. Like love, at once bitter and sweet, held together in one irresistible package. Like love, taken to satisfy more the soul than the body.

Now, would you like the recipe?! Click here

Prison Of My Own
A True Story of Redemption & Forgiveness

At first it didn’t seem like my kind of book. For the past three years, as founder of the Get Ready For Love! Radio Show, I’ve spent all my time reading about love. Self love, relationship love, spiritual love, familial love, physical love, how to love …

It didn’t seem like my kind of a love story. I interviewed couples who met on a roof top, during a blizzard, in a hurricane, in a tall club, on the underwater hockey team, at dog beach, in a 12 Step meeting, in their office on the day the room turned pink …

The heroine of Prison Of My Own was happily married for thirteen years, had two children and a perfect marriage. Then one day her husband murdered his nineteen year old mistress. Opps.

Excerpt from ... The Dance of Connection by Dr. Harriet Lerner
How to Talk to Someone When You're Mad, Hurt, Scared, Frustrated, Insulted, Betrayed, or Desperate

Finding Your Voice
The thread that unites my work both as an author and as a psychotherapist is my desire to help people speak wisely and well, sometimes about the most difficult subjects. This includes asking questions, getting a point across, clarifying desires, beliefs, values, and limits. How such communication goes determines whether we want to come home or stay away at the end of the day.

This is no simple matter, as glib terms like communication skills or assertiveness training imply. Assertiveness is considered a good idea -- if not a cultural ideal. But despite decades of assertiveness training and lots of good advice about communicating with clarity, timing, and tact, we may do our best to speak but still feel unheard. We may find that we cannot affect our husband or wife or partner, that fights go nowhere, that conflict brings only pain rather than an opportunity for two people to learn more about each other. We may have the same dilemma with our mother, sister or uncle, or close friend.

The Limits of "Good Communication"
We all want to communicate well and make ourselves heard. "He just doesn't get it" or ...

Don't give up before you get your miracle. -My Peeps

Or, are you a hare, owl, turtle or squirrel? Click here for the HOTS Test.

I found both of these tests to be extremely practical and interesting. Take them, journal about what you learn and let me know how you apply your insights.

Live and Let Live.

I know you've heard that expression but, do you live it?

Today I am a "Harry Potter" widow. Michael bought the book yesterday and he will not do anything except eat, take bath room breaks, grunt responses to anything I may say and read-read-read until he is done.

My wicked twin side has come up with a list of urgent "honey dos." My loving, compassionate twin is generous. She wants him to savor every word. (And, I know he'll do the same for me next weekend when it is my turn!)

That's live and let live.

The 2ND opinion to live and let live is to ask yourself "How important is it?" If it not life or death it isn't that important.

Love asks you to stay in the moment and allow them to enjoy theirs ...

An Angel At My Alter
Do you believe in angels? in miracles?

Do you believe that the people we Love never leave? and that God, angels and miracles are happening all the time around us?

I do but it is not everyday that I have proof to show to you.

This picture is proof. In it you see me getting married to Michael. I'd say he's the man of my dreams but he is more than that and better than any dream I ever had. So there is one miracle.

Now - do you see the white "spot" behind me? That shows up here and there in the photos taken of us at the alter and of the wedding party while they were in attendance at the alter. The spot moves around but is usually near the crown, heart and root Chakras.
After the ceremony - it is gone.

My beloved mentor and friend, Dr. Belle, died the week before our wedding. Me, I think she was there with us afterall and that she had the best seat in the house. Belle helped me fix my "picker," she Loved Michael and was so happy for us.

I'll share more of these photos with you soon. Until then ... believe and feel the presence of the Love surrounding you. We are so loved and, we are never alone.

Five months of persistence got him no where. All she ever said was NO.

So he stopped asking and started acting like this was just another business venture. He did some market research and found out that his ex-girlfriend was her best friend and that she Loved champagne and moonlight walks on the beach.

Slow Down and you will get the Love you deserve?

What a concept.

For my first 44 relationship years it was all about speed and drama. For me - what about our society?!

In the average film couples meet, have sex, get married, have babies and die of old age within a couple hours! Then "they say" we should "Live as if this was the last day of your life." Who are "they" and do they know how disconnecting this is? Then we invent things like "speed dating" and blackberries because if more men/women are coming at us FAST then the odds of finding "the one" improve. Huh?

I met my Love in a quiet room where people go to slow down, get in touch with themselves and grow spiritually. We sat next to each other. That was one of the best hours of my life.

If you are reading this post then maybe you need to step out of your fast lane and get a different perspective on Love.
