A visit to Heaven & Earth Works – Birth Angels

Good Shopping, and Good Reading, if you’re into angels and figuring out your life purpose! On our way to Boston to visit our great friends and allies at Dana Farber and Brigham and Women’s, we stopped in to finally meet Terah Cox, author of the book on angels (which I kept talking about on our Caringbridge website Well, we did not call ahead, so we just browsed the shop instead. I let Terah know (by phone) that we would love to be able to place on-line orders, because her work is so inspiring! Check out her website for a peak, but know that her framed poetry, greeting cards, etc… look even better in her shop. Very high quality. Terry’s book, Birth Angels, really helped me to shift my thinking further toward how life calls us forth. Regardless of our personal religious beliefs, this book asserts that we all have birth angels or energies corresponding to our specific birthdate and time.

Welcome – Bigger Game, Life Calling

Dan and I continue on the O’Marathon, which is all about getting Dan back to full health and happiness! We will continue to post semi-frequent updates on the Caringbridge site. As you all know, the O’Marathon was pretty much a full-time job for quite awhile. It’s becoming a part-time job now, and I will be heading back to IBM in a couple weeks (part-time). And I will be pursuing some other really cool stuff, which I want to share with anyone interested in that part of the journey! This is the spot for sharing my new “Bigger Game”, and for getting your input, and for having you “walk with me”, if you so desire! And I HOPE that you do, and that we’ll all learn a lot along the way. About this...
