Mental Health Anti-Stigma

One in six Americans deal with mental illness, and they face a stigma that can be as painful as the disease itself.

#JOLU

I’m proud how we come together as a nation in times of crisis, but I realized that I actually see that spirit here day in and day in this Cabinet.  I listen to Ed Sheeran a lot one song that I particularly like has a line that I thought had said “Human beings are destined to radiate or drain”; it made me think you...

I Went for Wendy

Today I attended a memorial service.  It was among the most remarkable I’ve attended.  It honored a very specific person, well two people really.  Yet I felt the presence of all my own losses in life and many others I’ve witnessed and learned of on this journey we call life. The service was a memorial for Wendy’s...

Wade in the Water

Wade in the Water Well, I’m doing it. I’ve been asked repeatedly since the forecast started calling for Hurricane Harvey to arrive, “Who should I give to?” It’s like election time when people ask me who should I vote for. My goodness I think give and vote. Both matter. Give. Vote. We have these negative stories...

Broken Roads

Saturday, I drove to Cave Junction to talk with a leadership group from Rogue Credit Union and some youth they were coaching during the day. They were having fun too. I was asked to talk about what inspired me or made me strong. I went with what made me feel strong. They were an inspiring group. They gave their...

Speak Truth to Power

It’s been a hard week here and on the other side of our country.  I’m not sure I was going to blog but I sat glued to the television yesterday because it was too smoky to do the Medford Food Project for me yesterday due to my asthma.  That was a bad alternate choice.  It was devastating to watch what was happening in...

Judgment

I can’t stop thinking about it.  It’s one of those days.  I have the kind of job where I can get mine handed to me regularly.  It just sneaks in and sometimes is gentle and pulls at my heart.  It reminds me to be careful.  It sneaks up sometimes and it’s a little like a perspective whack with Styrofoam or something...

A Hole in the Bucket

I’ve been thinking about all the rambling I’ve done so far this year and I keep landing at this children’s song, “There’s a Hole in the Bucket.”  Be glad I haven’t been thinking about small worlds.  Enough said.  Anyway, the lyrics following my rambling this week.  So you can sing about my meanderings for far too...

Losing Sight

Losing Sight I can’t stop thinking about losing sight.  This week, my mom was diagnosed with macular degeneration.  She loves to read.  She never has attached to technology so I think of ways to share her love of reading with the loss over time of her sight.  Maybe she’ll like audio books but I really don’t know.  If...

Hope and Wreckage

Some days I’m more hopeful than others.  How about you?  Some days you do need to see Winnie the Pooh animated dancing to just take a deep breath.  Here’s the link -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOeT6LBLkMU I’ve been thinking a lot about wreckage.  I often thought of it in terms of cars (my mother died in a wreck...
