“Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Many folks have tried to hide behind those brave, but woefully inaccurate words. The truth everyone one discovers sooner or later is that words can and do hurt, sometimes quite grievously. This reality makes the next phrase about love in 1 Corinthians 13:5 all the more challenging. “Love…. does not take into account a wrong suffered.”
Most Mountain Takers receiving this E-ncouragement are probably not in…Continue

I began my current novel in 2005. It received wonderful praise from my instructors and other writers in my workshop classes at the Harvard Extension School, but something was missing. After 50 pages, with heavy heart, I put the novel aside and moved on to another work of historical fiction. Yet in the past few years, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. And when someone wanted to see a sample of my writing, I always chose the first chapter of this particular novel to share. In 2010, when I…Continue

I run my race tomorrow and right now I’m not nervous - just wishing it would stop raining by morning. Training has taken hours through the winter and this spring; I am ready as I’ll ever be. However, it’s interesting how the mind can start playing games. Am I prepared enough? Have I eaten the right foods? Have I slept enough? It’s a question of shutting down this internal chatter and focusing on the outcome – I am visualizing myself crossing the finish line. Hope…Continue

Havah is the story of Adam and Eve. However, this is no Sunday School version! Author Tosca Lee has very skillfully taken the familiar Biblical tale and woven it into a rich tapestry full of unedited human drama, despair, pain, and triumph. The story is told from Eve’s point of view, giving us a whole different perspective – right from the moment she wakes in the garden, to the subtle deception of the serpent, and on through almost 900 years of her struggles as matriarch of…Continue

Anger in Love?
Anger is part of life, just as conflict is part of every relationship of any depth. Parents do get angry at their children, spouses at each other, workmates, schoolmates, shoppers with clerks and vice versa, the list goes on and on. Anger is also a major societal issue. Every community and many professions conduct “Anger Management” classes and seminars. Sometimes these interventions are required to keep individuals out of jail or other serious…Continue

We’ve had an April with three times the normal amount of rain and already May has twice the usual precipitation. This adds up to a lot of clouds and overcast skies. Mix in wind and unseasonably cool temperatures, and you’re seeing a city of still darkly dressed people with still darker dispositions. Luckily, a breathe of sunshine has crept in to make everyone’s Friday more celebratory and tomorrow promises more sunny skies. I won’t go any further at the risk of…Continue

“Love does not seek its own… “
The apostle Paul appears to be as concerned to tell us what love is not, as what it is. This short passage in 1 Corinthians 13:5 that we have been looking at these last few weeks speaks of 9 things love is, and 7 it isn’t, or doesn’t do. Love is known nearly as much by what it doesn’t do as it is by its positive actions. That teaches us that we can have a powerful influence on our “mountain” by refraining from doing what many would consider…Continue

Most of us have heard that call, either live at a sporting event, or over the airwaves. It signals that an athlete, often a professional who should know better, has made a gesture, or taken an attitude or action to offend if not harm an opponent. One of the latest incidents I am aware of occurred this last week in a basketball playoff game when a player deliberately slammed his elbow into an opponent attempting to make…Continue
