I started there the year it was founded and have worn numerous (and sometimes multiple) hats, moving between part-time cont...

Welcome to the trough

Because explaining what I do as a health coach can be difficult—while the profession is certainly growing, it’s still an alien concept for many—I like to talk about my work using stories, which seem to make more sense than a lot of theory and explanation. You can check out the previous stories in this month's series here: Where are you hiding? and How do you come to the kitchen? After the feedi...

What media messages do you ingest?

“The pitcher cried for water to carry…”

The work of the world is common as mud. Botched, it smears the hands, crumbles to dust. But the thing worth doing well done has a shape that satisfies, clean and evident. Greek amphoras for wine or oil, Hopi vases that held corn, are put in museums but you know they were made to be used. The pitcher cried for water to carry and a person for work that is real. from "To be of use" by Marge Piercy ...
