Freedom of the Mind
As our nation moves into its 233rd year of independence from Great Britain, we find ourselves, in many ways, more enslaved than ever before. Exterior forces such as more government regulation and requirements, an adherence to a world standard which, by its own accord negates our Declaration of Independence, and most importantly the abdication of our own inner personal freedoms carve a path of confinement rather than liberty.

Heated and Covered in Butter
My friend Ann and I walk two miles to the nearby gourmet grocery store. Contained within the store, resides a most decadent Boulangerie. The bakery also sells pastries and sweets, making it a Patisserie as well. One day, we decided to satisfy our craving for sweets, so Ann ordered a large cinnamon roll. The clerk asked, "Would you like that heated and covered in butter?" Ann and I both looked at one another and in unison responded, "Of course! Isn't everything better heated and covered in butter?" Laughing at the excessive indulgence, I realized that we taste life as plain little necessities, instead of indulging in everyday experiences more warmly and engulfed in goodness!

Beejeebers and Stuffin'
My father enjoyed laughing at himself. He also imparted his truisms in humorous ways, sometimes repeatedly, hoping we understood his underlying meaning. One of his silly antics included the bathroom mirror. He'd walk into the bathroom and let out a yell. "Ack!" he paused, "Phew, it's only me. I almost scared my stuffin' completely on the out." The awkward sentence, followed his feigned fearful cry, led to ultimate relief that the reflection in the mirror, was really himself. Over the years, I've remembered Daddy's playful idiosyncrasy, and twenty years later, it holds even greater meaning to me than one father's joyful attempt at self-realization. When we lose sight of ourselves in our daily walk through life, its easy to forget who we are. It's only when we stop a moment, and face our fears, that we recognize our innocent and childlike truth.

Puddles, Toothpaste and the Deep End
There's nothing quite like getting a big spoon, and dipping into the creamy surface of a newly opened jar of peanut butter! Similarly, life opens us up to smooth-surfaced possibilities with delicious experiences contained inside. Often, our fear holds us back from lavishing in all the good things contained beneath the surface. When we finally get the courage to pierce the surface of the illusion of the unknown, truly amazing things come into our lives!
