When Serendipity Touches a Journey

It's a bizarre but wonderful feeling, to arrive dead center of a target you didn't even know you were aiming for.

- Lois McMaster Bujold -

When Serendipity Touches a Journey

Anthony Rubino is a nonfiction writer and artist based out of New York City, where he also is an art teacher in the city's public school system. In this piece, Anthony tells the story of a vacation he and his wife took to Arizona, where he experienced the serendipity of connecting with a man whose painting appeared in his dream. He recently completed his memoir "Looking for Wonder: A Teacher's Unexpected Journey," which talks about his adventures as an art teacher. { read more }

A Sacred Steward of Honey Bees

Every saint has a bee in his halo.

- Elbert Hubbard -

A Sacred Steward of Honey Bees

Debra Roberts is a sacred steward of honey bees. She is one of an increasing number of women who care for bees without chemicals or toxic substances and with thankfulness, nurturing, and respect. Debra likens the ways in which she relates to bees as similar to the practices of great spiritual traditions: being calm, focused, and clear in your intent, slow and smooth in your movements, feeling grateful, and approaching others with respect. In this Filiz Telek short video, Holy Bee, Debra discusses the spiritual practice of beekeeping. { read more }

How to Age Gracefully

No one can give you better advice than yourself.

- Marcus Tullius Cicero -

How to Age Gracefully

What would you say to your seven-year-old self? Play more? Don't yell so loud? How about 'stay weird'... as one nine year old puts it. As we move through our lives, our many experiences, mistakes and accomplishments shape how we live in the world. Hindsight is an amazing thing, and the ability to look back and consider what we could have done is a bitter-sweet feeling, as there's no reliving the past. We can, however, shape our future. As part of CBC Radio One's farewell video from WireTap, people from all walks of life offer their sage advice to their younger selves. This light hearted, touching and insightful video is all about hindsight. 'Dear 53 year old, it's never too late to try something new'. 'Dear 85 year old, indulge your sweet tooth.' Want to know what advice a 93 year old would give? Take a look. { read more }

Too Much. Too Fast. Time To Slow Down.

The faster we live, the less emotion is left in the world. The slower we live, the deeper we feel the world around us.

- Stanko Abadzic -

Too Much. Too Fast. Time To Slow Down.

"Journalist Elizabeth Kolbert and Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard each had big books in 2015. Kolbert's The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History winner of the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction takes an unflinching look at the history of extinction and the different ways that human beings are negatively impacting life on the planet. Ricard's Altruism: The Power of Compassion to Change Yourself and the World explores global challenges, such as climate change, and argues that compassion and altruism are the keys to creating a better future. Together these books filled with grief and hope feel like two sides of a coin, each necessary for understanding what it means to be alive during humanity's greatest crisis.Moderator Sam Mowe spoke with Kolbert and Ricard to discuss emotional responses to distressing environmental news, the importance of slowing down, and the role of art in environmental solutions." { read more }
