The kids are back in school and the usual routine is in full swing! Now that the “vacation” has started for so many of us, we can hopefully make more time to read.

There are many things about aging that aren’t altogether fun. To me, the worst one is the way time seems to be speeding up. I remember thinking a day was a lifetime. Now, a month feels as short as a week, and a week as fast as a day. Looking on the bright side, however, there are a few things I adore about getting older.

One of the things that keeps me up at night is the thought of plastic in our bodies of water. From the islands of plastic in the oceans to the microplastics found in our sea salt supply, I shudder when I think of this pollution.

Because plastic is found in everything and everywhere, I feel the best approach to reducing our consumption of plastic is through baby steps. For example,...

There is a scene in the movie Moana that I believe depicts the truth about human beings and is the key to having better relationships.

[Spoiler alert!]

In the scene, Te Ka, a lava monster, is getting ready to destroy Moana. Moana sees the monster is missing its heart. Instead of retreating, she asks the ocean to part so that Te Ka can walk towards her. As the water moves aside to r...
