PASSION: HOW WE LOVE DEFINES THE BURNING QUESTION by Charlotte M. Liebel


Friend ~ I hear your heart of passion almost every day.  As you speak bold words of God’s mind you express the passion you follow in Christianity. Most visible is your love for family values and background heritage. You express pride and love in your children. How we love defines the burning question: Passion.

 Your passion runs deep as you celebrate and visit Indian Nation events in other states with pride. You absorb books in many subjects by the dozens and are an example for family and others that books educate. You show how education is important for one’s mind and share what you learn in conversation. You can never be bored or boring.

Wildlife is another passion of yours in the protection and privacy you give to your bird residents. Because you shelter and nurture God’s creatures, you and your family receive pleasure, education, and blessings.

And your greatest recent accomplishment – juicing – is absolutely a passionate response to eating well, loss of weight, and lifestyle changes. Even your car experienced a passionate response from you over it’s total loss. These emotions are those that I can relate to and to which I can respond in kind.

Passion can not be simply defined. It may be more an expression of how we love rather than what we love.

POSIT SCIENCE BRAIN FITNESS


Play a Brain Fitness Game: experience the “Stroop Effect.” [Fun Game!]

“What does this mean?”

WHAT POSIT SCIENCE SAYS AFTER TAKING THIS TEST: “The 60-second Brain Game is a variation of psychological experiments that measure the “Stroop effect.” These experiments require the brain to respond to conflicting information to measure its flexibility and speed.

Reaching higher levels means that your brain is faster and more flexible. How many you get correct doesn’t really matter, because the game adapts to you. What matters is speed.

You just played the 60 Second Brain Game and tested your brain’s speed. So you probably realize that keeping your brain in shape is key to living well today and aging well in the future. After all, the brain is one of the most important “muscles” in the body and it needs exercise, too.

Now it’s easier than ever to be at your best with the Posit Science Brain Fitness Programs, clinically proven to help you think faster, focus better and remember more.”

Calling Americans: Buffoons re Royals


The Fairytale is True: Commentary

by Charlotte Liebel © 2011

Reading a rather interesting article written by Joe Queenan in the May 9, 2011, issue of the Time, Commentary.  While he may be accurate in his critique of the British Royals and the buffoonery of citizens of America, his topic and title “America’s Nitwit Anglophiles” is cynical for several reasons.

If I am to believe a man who defames people he might otherwise admire and conjures a portrait that all the ~ upper-crust ~ of Britain are “…vulgar, dim, crass, and useless…” and then suggests then that he must yet qualify the statement with: “At their worse…”  Seems to me that this is what he does well and that would be to insult the population from whom his dear wife evolves. Not to mention that he speaks loosely of people from his chosen country and lumping everyone from the same mold.  

Perhaps Mr. Queenan is merely goading the parties of both lands to help him make a living.  He’ll certainly have more than his share of criticism to make him the proper choice for laughing fodder.  I must dispel any of his silly assumptions that are, however, laugh-out-loud funny.  

For his ignorance in lumping all people into classes and into a single category for classes, which cannot make a bit of sense as far as the USA is concerned, let him earn a tsunami of misappropriation for that brain of his is waterlogged already and a little more water should not matter.

It is sad, in my humble opinion, that Joe Queenan can see the dimness and not the splendid forest of magic and fairytale.  Not to begin appreciating a wedding between nobility and commoner when our world is bereft with war and taxes and poverty is to disdain the miracle among mortals for a blessing of spiritual Godliness.   

FIVE-SECOND PAWS: Meet Nala My Shar Pei


FIVE-SECOND PAWS: Meet Nala My Shar Pei

by Charlotte Liebel © 2011

A couple of summers ago, I brought Nala home to stay with me when my daughter and granddaughter went to Cabo for a Mexico Holiday.  Nala is a gentle tempered, rumpled-skinned tan colored Chinese Shar Pei who now resides in Doggies Heaven but will continue to grace the pages of my life.

Nala’s disposition is that of a strong, silent-type breed. She is lovable and extremely devoted to her caregiver. As we walked every day for exercise for at least an hour, I taught her safety rules such that she must ‘Paws’ for five-seconds at every driveway and at street corners before crossing.  

It became a game for us to head out the door on the longest leash that walking-dogs could desire because I wanted her to have the feeling of freedom of maneuverability. On the other hand, she was in a new environment with a new task-master. Nala was headstrong and payed no heed to my commands and I, certainly, did not want to have my charge run away.

If we decided to spread our paws and walk in the sands at the ocean, dear Nala was delighted to romp and play in the water so long as I walked in the water with her. This joyful exercise had a double benefit.

Petting this affectionate dog who is endowed with short prickly hair is like making love to a bearded lover who has neglected to shave for several days. The lovely lass painstakingly comes away with raw and pink flesh around checks and chin.

Because of the sandy water and whipping waves, the Shar Pei’s hair comes away softer and the smell of dirty laundry disappears. Nala and I enjoyed hours of close camaraderie as I hugged and stroked her crinkly and softened pelt and cupped my hands around her trusting face ~ her eyes looked hauntingly into mine with pure love.

Nala was patient with me. At first visit, she wanted to jump-up on the forbidden-couch. No matter what I said and how much I scolded it was of little comfort to me to see this hard-headed canine disobey my wishes.  She needed a firm command and a little help to mend her ways. Especially at nightfall.

At night, the result of my falling into a trouble-free sleep was to tie a short leash to Nala’s collar and the other end to the doorknob of my bedroom door. Just outside of the door, I fashioned a portable comfy padded bed for Nala. Eventually, our bonding became one of joy and companionship and our fulfillment was immeasurable without the need of confinement.  

My dear Nala became so attached to me that, as she learned that it was bedtime, I welcomed the sound of her long hard toenails following me to the door of my bedroom each night. Nala could be trusted to stand guard at my door and never leave it for the comfort of a living room chair, again.

In all confidence, I can say that Nala was now my social companion who walked with me at the Dog Park, hardly ever barked at new friends as long as I welcomed them although she would alert me to a presence at the door when I was unaware. For the same reason that almost all dogs bark when they sense his nearness, Nala was a terror facing the Postman.

Photos of the Chinese Shar Pei will tie my heart in knots any day because of Nala who became my loyal friend. Memories of our walks bring a broad smile to my face as I recall stories about her when she returned home. Nala taught my granddaughter the safety rules we’d practiced so well. Every driveway and corner gave an annoyed reminder and five-second paws jolt.
