Rescue Me

I may have been quiet this last month, and that's because I've been very busy putting the finishing touches on my new book, Rescue Me: Tales of Rescuing the Dogs Who Became Our Teachers, Healers, and Always Faithful Friends.

For as long as I can remember, I have been an animal lover and this book is my way of giving back. It is a collection of 12 stories, two written by me, of how the dogs we saved and/or adopted blessed our lives in return. Frankly, all the great emotional healing tools aside, I can't think of any better therapy I've ever had than the constancy and unconditional love and acceptance of my dogs. To see so many homeless, abused, neglected, and being euthanized by the millions wounds my soul.

There is a saying that you can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving. There is another saying, that when you heal (or make whole) others, you heal yourself. This book is my way of giving and healing - by raising awareness and funds and by sharing heartwarming stories of love, second chances and healing of humans and their dogs, that touch our hearts. Shelters and rescues will be receiving donations from book sales to ease their financial burden while dealing with this huge problem humans created of homeless, suffering animals.

A Holistic Approach to Wellness

More exciting news this month! My longtime friend and publisher of Bellesprit magazine, Belle Salisbury, interviewed me for the feature story for the November issue of the magazine.

Our topics included a holistic approach to wellness, using herbs, and my book, Rescue Me. That's me and my dog, Teddy, on the cover.

Bellesprit is a metaphysical magazine covering a broad range of topics from wellness to astrology to psychic development and more. The current issue, including our Holistic Approach to Wellness article, is available on the front page of the website. Plus, you can read articles from any columnist, including yours truly, by clicking on the Our Team link at the top of the page. Enjoy!

As we head into the holiday season, I wish you peace, joy, and a time of reflection, gratitude, and healing. It is my hope that you approach this time as an opportunity to receive what you need and to give what you can, in ways that you can, so that others will be blessed and what you give comes back multiplied to you.

Please take a moment to send healing light to our neighbors in the Philippines. Thank you.
