Solidarity Day with Gaza June 6

If you can’t make a rally or vigil next Saturday, I hope that you will send some healing thoughts or prayers to the people in the Gaza strip. Sage and I prayed for them before she went to bed tonight and we will continue to do so.

Praying for a renewed Peace Treaty between North Korea and the United States would be a good idea, too!

My full apologies to Cole Porter, but I had no idea that 3 sharks die every second at human hands… that’s just startling! Commentaries on that and many others below…

May is a Month of Sleep and Appreciation

My good friend Lisa would tell me, “Sara, three words: Pot. Kettle. Black.” It’s true that all of my life I’ve been a non-sleeper who would take random naps for survival. I can now attest that behavior like that can cause real damage–in my case, to my eyes, memory, and general overall health. I’m also finding that the more sleep my body gets, the more it wants! Celebrate Better Sleep Month by giving yourself a full eight hours sometime this week. It’s quite refreshing!

If you can’t sleep, try a technique I’ve learned from Laura Fenamore: Ask each body part calmly to relax. “Neck, relax. Shoulders, relax. Spine, relax.” It almost automatically does this! Just try. Your body wants you to.

Here are my latest pieces for today:

OneClickMoms is Live!

It actually went live on May 1, so I am a little late in posting this. But I wanted to share it because I have written some reviews for the site, and may write more. You can see my shiny happy bio on the site here.

I’d like to invite you to sign up for the One Click Daily. The box for sign-ups is located on the home page at When you receive each One Click Daily you will see a review of a website for kids and teens as well as the writer’s bio as the reviewer.

It’s a great way to check out websites and see if they are safe, functional, meaningful, etc. for your kids. So please sign up and don’t forget to pass it on to your friends—both moms and dads!  🙂

Once they are live, I will also be adding my reviews to the article section of this site.

Happy Clicking!

Moms and Moles

On Mother’s Day, I wrote a piece on What Mom Really Wants at Parenting Report.

Today I have a story up at Weird Animal Report called Star-Nosed Mole: AKA The Guy From That M. Night Shyamalan Movie. And yes, it’s a real animal!

I have another story about Frog Jumping Day at Pet in the Pocket. Find out more about this holiday and celebrate!

I’ve also been writing a lot of articles for several different companies, all of which I hope to be able to post here soon, once they are live.

Have a great week!
