Sick Day(s) It appears that whenever I start making positive progress in the exercise area that I become sick. Now, I know this is common as your muscles release toxins, but this is a cold that started a few days ago. It makes it quite difficult to go on job interviews and present yourself when


Non-Running Day Karma: in Dharmic religions understood as denoting the entire cycle of cause and effect described in Hindu, Jain, Sikh and Buddhist philosophies. A week and a half ago we were rear-ended on the way to a friend’s house. The guy’s first words were ‘I wasn’t even looking. Sorry about that.’ Cops were already

Happy People
