What Is Important to You?

Posted by on Jun 13, 2014 in Books Worth Meandering, Events and Happenings, Happiness | Comments Off on What Is Important to You?

Life moves along at a hectic pace these days. In just one day we are bombarded with and expected to process the same amount of information that a century ago was experienced over a two-year period of time. As many of you know, I have a three-year-old grandson who experiences autism. He is an amazing child who ‘marches to the beat of a different drummer.’ Passionate about the power of connection, I have felt drawn to him who has difficulty connecting, and have shifted my life to be close by to honor him in his world and hopefully expand his world to more fully include ours. In June...

Plate Spinning and the Wild Goose

Posted by on Jun 17, 2009 in Books Worth Meandering, Happiness, Miscellaneous Inspirations | Comments Off on Plate Spinning and the Wild Goose

“You start dying when you have nothing to live for. You start living when you find something worth dying for.” — Mark Batterson (author, Wild Goose Chase) Whew! I don’t know about you, but my life has been very full. It has been said that life is a banquet. Well, my plates are very full! I have at times felt that my life is split. I feel pulled between the needs of my grandkids (one boy with autism, two with ADHD, and a 7 month old grand-daughter on the brink of crawling, all living in Los Angeles), my passion for developing my work and sustainability in a way that is...

What Is The “Whelm” We Are “Overed” By

Posted by on Apr 12, 2009 in Books Worth Meandering, Catch All Happiness, Events and Happenings, Happiness, Quotes, Rhonda's Articles | Comments Off on What Is The “Whelm” We Are “Overed” By

Dear Happy Traveler, I have always been curious about words… their origin, their apparent meaning, and their embedded or double meaning. As many of you know, I also enjoy revising the meaning to words so they hold a more intentional impact. A word that caught my fancy recently was one we hear far too often these days: overwhelmed. Everywhere I turned, I hear the word in conversation, experience it in everyone’s attitudes, and witness the result on people’s faces. Honestly I, too, had a week that tempted me to concur, however, remembered the words of Mother Teresa, “I know God...

Happy Spring Greetings

Posted by on Mar 20, 2009 in Books Worth Meandering, Catch All Happiness | Comments Off on Happy Spring Greetings

With every step I take I am reminded by those around me that we all are challenged by these times that are so difficult for so many. How do we maintain joy? How is happiness sustainable when times are so tough? Amidst contradictions, we are called to trust happiness, choose joy, walk focused fully forward, and evolve in good faith together. The path often seems dimly lit, yet we continue to take steps in the direction of love, trusting the Light. We sort for the ways that life is good rather than moan and complain about what is not working. Lovevolves. It does, especially if we feed it. The...

A Nudge Toward Happiness

Dear Treasured Traveling Companions, ‘It’s possible for you to feel happy—and that choice is yours to make at any moment.’ — Michael Neill ( I have had a horrible allergy for far too long. Perhaps you do, too. Sales and marketing have somehow seemed against my nature. I have felt that to sell or promote compromises your integrity. I have not felt comfortable in this role for as long as I can remember. I have held the belief that self-promotion is shameful and making money means that someone else goes without. Pretty limiting...

Homage to The Gurilla Art Kit

Posted by on Oct 16, 2007 in Books Worth Meandering | Comments Off on Homage to The Gurilla Art Kit

We are living in a golden age of self-expression. There is an expanding explosion of user-created content on blogs and social networking sites, but while we may be spending a lot more time in virtual worlds, it is important we not loose the urge to connect and make our physical world more meaningful. A wonderful concept is to leave art and ideas in public places as a way of affecting someone’s day—change their mood or their mind in a positive and creative way—and maybe even change the world in the process! What a great possibility to visualize! This also seems it could be...
