The Discovered Treasure We discovered a treasure for our senses, something we will remember for years to come and I would love to share it with you. A couple weekends ago Joan (my wife) and I went out for a nice ride to the Bad Dürkheim wine fest. It’s the largest wine fest in the world. It’s more than a wine fest, though. It’s a carnival with lots of rides and, of course, the most important part, lots of delicious food! Isn’t food the main reason anyone goes to a carnival? Or is that just me? We love carnivals.

Healing ADHD with Avatar and How to Train Your Dragon – The Child Within

Let’s face it, we are all just a tad too serious most of the time and we take ourselves just a little too seriously.

I am learning to relax, chill-out and not take things so dog-gone seriously. We can get way too caught up in all the things we want to do and the goals we set for ourselves that when it looks like we are not going to achieve something, anything, it becomes the biggest let down ever, you know, like EVER – the sky is falling and quickly too! Let’s just take a moment and breathe. Take that deep breath in and hold it for a few seconds, then let it out slowly. [...]
