Arthur Brooks, President of the American Enterprise Institute, writes that the moral foundation everyone shares is the wish for a compassionate society with a sense of fairness. Brooks is the author of Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America From Our Culture of Contempt. He says the importance of a moral foundation and sen […]
What is a voiceover brand rooted in heart and love energy doing in the world of political advertising? Turns out a lot, because advertising for causes and candidates that are heart-centered is the future. People tune out attack ads, and I don’t want to be a part of that. Instead, I’d like to use my voice for causes and candidates that […]
… and hello again. We found this blog when updating to the new website. It was gone and sort of forgotten as you can see, as the last entry was 5-years ago. I loved reading it again — I was blogging here before I started the New World Kirtan podcast, and if you scroll down you can read entries that relate to that. I’ll […]
There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.

Well . . . at that point over a year ago I decided to move the Kitzie’s Voice blog to Blogger–the reason why now escapes me. Then Blogger (and Google) lost this blog, and several months of content, and has been unable to find it despite numerous emails to various support entities at both organizations–damn your eyes […]
If you’ve been reading my blog, please note that I’ve not only moved location, but have expanded the scope of the blog as well. I’ve been involved in yoga, meditation, the power of intention and kirtan chanting for a long time, and these and other practices (acupuncture & qigong) are moving me into a new place in m […]
I’ve been away from my home/studio for almost 3 weeks . . . way too long. I was in Philadelphia for several weeks taking care of my Mom after knee replacement (that’s another story). But now I’m in Cape Cod with my husband’s family. This isn’t my first time, I’ve been here twice before. But this time I think I finally get it. […]
. . . and stuck to all my senses.”
– Joni Mitchell “Chelsea Morning”
Summer has arrived in the Pacific Northwest, and this weekend was glorious. Up to now, we’ve been having “Juneuary”. I think we’ve invented a new word out here. Anyway, it has been a cold, wet spring and it is wonderful to […]
Last night my youngest son graduated from high school. It was a surreal experience. The hall was filled with parents I recognized dating back to grade school. At soccer games and football games we stood together, huddled under umbrellas. We suffered through grade school band concerts together. We’ve talked to each other on the phone […]
