It’s Spring! Have You Noticed?

What is this woman on about!  Of course I noticed it's spring can't you see?  I'm cleaning! THAT is just my point.  The moment any change, whether it is weather or otherwise, comes about we have to 'control' that change somehow. It has to be assigned to a task or rather multiple tasks have to be

From Woe to WOW: Escape to Sleep

Woe: Patty went from the kitchen to the den for only a moment.  She sat on her comfortable but broken couch. She flipped open a magazine.  Patty doesn't remember the article she turned to except that upon awakening hours later she was on page 76. The article was a blur. 'Oh G-d! its 2am! I

NOT AGAIN ! unHAPPY to be awake now?

No,  not thinking about the trouble

Nodding off or NOT Why Can’t I Sleep?

Why can’t I sit down without dropping off to sleep after only a few moments?  It’s embarrassing! In Kim Jong Un’s North Korea falling asleep was fatal during May 2015. The defence minister nodded off during a meeting subsequently that minister was executed. WHY is this happening and what’s a person to do? Here are some

It is life saving to be pulled out of quick sand but sure doesn't feel good on the way out... only after the realization has sunk in.  I am alive!  I am here on the grass!  I am safe.. Whatever got lost in the quick sand is actually gone as well. I got introduced to hypnosis

From WAR to COLD war… What Price FOOD?

I am back tracking a bit: 2007-2009. Yehuda's friends created and published an album of a number of Yehuda's compositions. The album called Harei Yehuda was very well received and we got so many kind letters and calls! It was really beautiful! On the home front though new more devastating symptoms had now arrived and
