https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCFDFpj-TH0 Sadie told me she was headed to Wisconsin’s 100 mile garage sale this weekend. I cannot wrap my head around that concept, but it got me thinking about the old adage “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Any given item at a garage sale, let’s say a lamp shade, can be viewed as […]

Hypnosis and Resilience: Resilience was a buzz word that used to be talked about a lot. As we seek a more normal life after Covid, I wonder how that word will come back into play.
