Conversations on Life Podcast – Episode 5

In this Episode:

Mona Lisa

I’m gay. So was Leonardo Da Vinci by the way.

Leonardo Da Vinci was a genius. He is loved not only for The Mona Lisa but also for The Last Supper, the most reproduced religious painting of all time. We also adore the work of his contemporary Michelangelo whose sculptures of the David and the Pieta are divinely inspired masterpieces. Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo were amazing artists that continue to make the world better for their having lived.

  • We are meant to create a beautiful work of art from our precious life too.
  • The art of our life does not have to be in marble or fresco.
  • Our great work of art is to lovingly touch the heart of others so our life will be seen as a masterpiece in God’s eyes.

Conversations on Life Podcast – Episode 4

In this Episode:

Cheddar Man

There’s Black and Brown in this White Woman.

Growing up in the southern part of the United States during the 1960s I was surrounded by white supremacy and privilege. I’m gay so I know how it feels to be considered and treated less than. Yet, as a gay woman, I go through life with the choice of being out or not and being white I walk through life unaware of my color. My dark skin brothers and sisters still do not have this freedom.

  • The scientific fact is, all human beings – black, brown, white – can trace our common dark skin ancestors back to Africa.
  • Each of us is a member of the human race.
  • That’s why my brown and black friends and I agree we don’t have a race problem. We have a respect problem.

Conversations on Life Podcast – Episode 3

In this Episode:

Of course, I’ve been visited by aliens! Hasn’t everyone? 

Okay, I imagine you’re saying to yourself, “Hey, this lasagna lady is nuts.”  I get it since close encounters of the third kind are highly suspect. Unless of course, you are discussing the matter with Giorgio A. Tsoukalos or Erich von Däniken. But, if you’re not a fan of Ancient Aliens or have not read Chariots of the Gods, my experience will seem odd. You’d certainly have doubts if the only aliens you’ve encountered are in movies or on TV. If you only know the Klingons, Romulans, Vulcans, or Borg of Star Trek fame maybe you would think I’m a six-pack short of a case.

  • You can imagine how surreal and strange it must be to grow up with a secret you are not able to share with anyone for fear of being labeled crazy.
  • Finding others who share the same experience is comforting because you can’t be crazy when someone, anyone, steps up and says, “Hey, that also happened to me.”
  • Each experience you and I have in life is a unique opportunity to grow our sympathy, empathy, and compassion for others.

The Devil Does Yoga. My Mother Told Me So.

Mom recently told me she read a letter to the editor in her local newspaper about yoga being the work of the devil. At almost 94 mom is not really surprised by much but she seemed quite surprised to learn some people believe yoga is related to Satan. Really? And who are the people who believe yoga is related to the Devil and why do they believe it? I’m curious because I’ve been doing yoga for over fifteen years and not once have I even had a bad thought much less become possessed by Satan. To learn more I’m joined by yoga expert Barbara Simon.

  • Our mind has an opinion about everything but that does not mean our mind’s opinions or even the beliefs we hold are true.
  • It’s responsible to think about why we think what we do and to challenge why we think others must believe what we do.
  • I feel certain Jesus would question the motivation behind using fear to teach in his name.

Conversations on Life Podcast – Episode 1

In this Episode:

My Lasagna is to die for! Hey, after 45 years it should be.  

Honestly and with all modesty I can say my lasagna is to die for. I don’t mean my lasagna will literally kill you. Heavens NO! The expression “it’s to die for” means something is fantastic, incredible, magnificent, and in the case of food over the top delicious. And my lasagna should be first-rate, an award-winning stack of deliciousness because I’ve spent the past 45 years mastering the recipe.

  • We don’t get good at anything – cooking, relationships, a job, patience – without practice.
  • If we want to be really good at something we must get really good at practicing that something.
  • Practice will make us proficient, not perfect. Takes a lot of stress off, doesn’t it?

RYS 133: Your Love is Strong, But …

In this Episode:

 

If  I had a magic wand I’d touch it to the hearts of those who hurt others and yet claim to love. If I had a magic wand I’d touch it to the hearts of those who allow themselves to be hurt by others and yet claim they are loved. One of the biggest misconceptions we have about relationships is that we have the power to change another person.  If we’re just more understanding, patient, loving, open, scream louder, say it in a different way, etc., then he or she will wake up and get it.  If it were that easy I would wave my magic wand and the world would transform overnight.

RYS 132: It Takes Two to Tango

In this Episode:

 

I don’t know how to dance the Argentine Tango with its virtually unlimited improvisational opportunities or the American/International Tango where specific steps and patterns are learned for competitive events. If I want to be part of a successful dance team, whether it is for competition or just out for fun on Saturday night, I first have to learn how to dance. The same is true of my having successful relationships because those also require me to be able to move in rhythmic partnership to an ever changing dance of interpersonal dynamics.

RYS 131: How I lost 63 Pounds and How I Keep it Off

In this Episode:

 

At one time I was obese. The short answer to how I lost the extra weight is, I worked my rear end off through exercise to burn the 220,500 calories necessary to get back down to 130 pounds. The long answer is that before I hit the gym, before I committed to a new habit of eating healthy, and before I could care for my physical body as a daily lifestyle, I had to confront my emotions and why I was stuffing them with food.

RYS 130: Attention Deficient No More

In this Episode:

 

When I was younger I spent much time daydreaming.  In school, in church, while watching television, when mom and dad were talking. I was constantly distracted by my thoughts. Needless to say I was not a good student. So while pursuing my master’s degree I genuinely wanted to do my best. I consulted a psychiatrist who, after a long series of tests, diagnosed me with Attention Deficit Disorder. Aptly so, since I was so easily distracted I could not finish reading one sentence without my mind carrying me off to whatever it got distracted by.
