Awareness

AWARENESS by Elena Greco April 7, 2020 During this pandemic, many of us are going to be required to spend time alone or at our home instead of at an office or at public gatherings.  Maybe this is not such a bad thing!

Not Crazy, Not Lazy

Not Crazy, Not Lazy by Elena Greco January 14, 2018 In 2011 I suddenly and unexpectedly found myself on the floor. I couldn’t get up. I had no idea why.

Let Them Be Children

Let Them Be Children by Elena Greco October 4, 2017 I recently became aware that eight million children in this country, some as young as six months old, are being given psychotropic drugs—amphetamines, anti-psychotics, anti-depressants, anti-however-you-don’t want-your-child to-act.

Art As (My) Life by Elena Greco September 24, 2016 I will surely break open. That’s what I’m feeling today.  Falling into the abyss, emotions too big to contain.  Defeated, despondent, dejected, depressed.  Angst in the form of great sadness, anguish, despair.  For once in my life, regret is a factor in this emotional soup.  Regret for time wasted, opportunities…

The Quiet Epidemic

THE QUIET EPIDEMIC by Elena Greco March 15, 2016 Many people have not heard of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)—an unfortunate misnomer, since the disease is not about being “fatigued.”  It is known by several other names, including Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), and Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease (SEID).  It affects all systems in the body.  According…

Intention—Our Portal to Creation

Intention—Our Portal to Creation by Elena Greco It’s the time of year when people are talking about their New Year’s Resolutions. The word “resolution” has the root “resolve,” so we might think that resolutions would be strong predictors of the future. Unfortunately, we would be wrong. What most people mean by “New Year’s Resolution” is more wishful thinking than resolve,…
