Kita's Gentle Message: A Mars Invasion (Sat. April 30, 2011)

A lot of us experienced some vicious wind activity last week. My sympathies go out particularly to those affected in Alabama.

Having just entered my condo building's main foyer and turned down the hallway, a sudden monstrous crash caused me to swing around and see a million pieces of glass scattered over the floor where I had walked not moments before. The wind had hurled a… Continue

How To Use Cars (and other forms of transportation) To Enhance Character Development.

I started writing my book "What Car Would Hamlet Drive? 2000 questions to ask fictional characters for students, actors, writers and readers of fiction" because I had a very hard time making small talk at social events. As a writer, I feared I might have as much difficulty thinking up things to ask fictional characters.

Along the path of compiling thousands of questions, I discovered that I have written a seminal book about Character - not definitive because every time I let anyone…

Kita's Gentle Message: The Goodness of Good Friday ( Friday, April 22, 2011)

How good that there is a day to take off from work to be and do what one wants. I wish for all of you every blessing for this long Easter weekend however you choose to spend it. Take time for some quiet and reflection - visit with your soul if you are able. It is in moments like this day - Good Friday, that we can turn inward and see ourselves for what we are - vulnerable and beautifully human.

Take care,…

Kita's Gentle Message: Can't Buy Me Love (Saturday, April 16, 2011)

Surfing the Net inevitably leads to some spectacular offers: find your soulmate - register here; lose weight without dieting; find the secret of happiness by buying this DVD series now. I must admit, I get really uncomfortable when reading this kind of stuff. As if a lived life could be made better so quickly and easily - we all wish it were so. But happiness, love - all these great emotions are not commodities; they can't be bought, and instantly had even though some… Continue

Love is not...

As we proceed with our study of the role love has in our lives as Mountain Takers, we must keep in

mind there are pluses and minuses, or do’s and don’ts in this kind of love. There are things love is, and things loves is not. Behaviors love is known by and others not at all indicative of love. Love is known both what is does do and doesn’t do.

Then last time we looked at the…

Kita's Gentle Message: Tomorrow's Another Day (Friday, April 8, 2011)

Do you ever have one of those days where so much is going on that you feel pulled in all directions? Well, I felt like that yesterday - had writing deadlines, decisions to make on a new car, a scheduled early-evening run, phone calls to return - to the point that a perfect storm was brewing in my little head. Overwhelmed, I let the tears flow...and then I felt better. The run was great; it was a perfect sunset, and tomorrow's another…
