Kita’s Gentle Message: Go Fly a Kite (Saturday, July 30, 2016)

It’ll feel quite awkward when you first try it…maybe you haven’t done it since you were a kid – or ever.  And someone holding the kite for you while you ready yourself is a given.  Once you begin running, you realize you have to keep going otherwise the momentum of catching the wind will be lost.  And you run and run some more until the kite meets the wind at just the right moment.  Up it rises like your spirit – both soaring and jubilant- daring anyone to break the…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Tree Talk (Saturday, July 23, 2016)

Now this is pretty cool: in her TED talk (, ecologist Suzanne Simard explains how trees communicate – via their underground root system.  The older trees known as “Hub” or “Mother” trees not only pass on and exchange nutrients but they also pass on wisdom, warnings, and let others in the network know when they are…

Kita’s Gentle Message: Friends Forever (Saturday, July 2, 2016)

I remember looking out the back window of our car at my friends who were standing in the middle of the road and waving at me as we drove away.  It was the end of school; we were moving to another city; I was seven going on eight and knew I was never going to see them again.  Today I had a last conversation with a girlfriend who is moving across the country.
