Longevity

My dear dad is 89, sharp as a tack and my mum says he has a head like a rock from his early years playing soccer (lots of time spent heading the ball).  This turns out to be a vital asset in later years. Last week he fell down the steps outside a little seaside…

A word from the Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered ‘Man.  Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.  Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.  And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live…

Anxiety and Biking

Laura -Recently  I’ve been suffering from lots of anxiety about how different my life has become. I’m no longer working, living in a different place, afraid I’ll lose my business, worried about having enough money to get through 2 years of this treatment and how I’ll support myself in the future.  I’ve also got in touch…

Trampoline

Hungry for Animal Protein

Laura- Why can’t vegetables smell as good as meat? Lucie came home with an organic burger tonight and I am getting high off the smell.  If you know me, that I like to eat comes as no surprise. I fancied myself a gourmet diner and could have been a food critic. There’s nothing more pleasurable than…

Warrior Woman

Laura- My girl Lucie, she sure is somethin’. She is like a warrior fighting for me to get healthy. Lucie is a Scotswoman in every way. In the olden days the Romans were so frightened by the Scots that they built Hadrian’s Wall to keep them out. The women were allegedly fiercer fighters than the…
