As I hope many of you know already, I have moved my blogging activity to my new website http://www.trishascott.com. On that site I have included the archives from this site. It is where my new posts will appear as well as all of my work from the old website scottfree2b.com and all of the services I offer.
I have just discovered, though, that there is a newish wordpress perk with which you can Re-Blog a post that you like from another blogger. I love this. Problem is that it doesn’t work for self hosted sites. Actually that’s OK. I can still Re-Blog posts I think are great and they end up here!
So this is now my official Re-Blogging place and my Official Home is trishascott.com. It all works out. So if you like the things I am re-blogging I welcome you to my new world here!

Representative Tim Ryan (D-OH) discusses how mindfulness can offer an effective—and bipartisan—remedy for problems plaguing our schools, hospitals, veterans, and society at large. A talk he delivered for the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley in May, 2012.
This video discusses the wide implications for mindfulness and meditation for all human beings.
He talks about Father Thomas Keating's Centering Prayer…

Meditation - Keith Jarrett
If you don't know Keith Jarrett he's a pianist and this is a piano piece that is called meditation. Given I often post actual meditations on this blog I thought I might need to point that out.
I love Anne Lamott. She is among my favorite writers because of her raw, honest turn of phrase and her fearlessness that allows her to cut right to the chase. In her efforts to thoroughly understand herself, she is a mirror for her readers.
In 2009, she wrote this gorgeous article in O, The Oprah Magazine, about how to be who you are meant to be.

I am moving my blog to it’s new home at http://www.trishascott.com. That will also be my new website with pages on wellness and animal communication. I’m really happy to finally make this move after thinking about it for YEARS. It just took me awhile to focus.
If you are a subscriber and wish to continue getting email notices of new posts, please go there and re-subscribe. There is going to be a lot more activity, as the first new post will explain but all of the old archives are still there if you like digging into particular aspects of the last 6 years of blogging.
Hope to see you there!
I wasn’t a fan but he is cute and did a fairly good job. But I find this quote is golden, “We’re all so lucky to be where we are today.” I think anyone who was able to watch that on TV is really in that number of LUCKY people.
I personally live in a REALLY modest home, by American standards, but it is my home. I own it. The bank doesn’t own it – I own it. My Jeep Cherokee is old I guess, 1996, but paid for and suits me well. I have a social security income WAY below the poverty line but I occasionally get some work, within my field, and it fills me spiritually and fills in the gaps financially. I’m no longer motivated to sell myself. If people really need what I have to offer, they will find me.
That puts me, I believe, at approximately the top 1 or maybe 2% of the best off people on the whole planet, maybe. Maybe or maybe not financially, don’t have the figures, but certainly in terms of fulfillment. I LOVE that I am so fortunate.
Tell me how fortunate you are. I know you are fortunate or you wouldn’t have a computer, nor the time to read this.
