It was just a slap


I was captivated by this memoir. It is raw and honest and brought me to tears on occasion. I know Kathleen as a vibrant and articulate person and I was shocked by the depth of her emotional pain and the physical effects she has endured over decades. Her determination to finish this memoir is an inspiration. 
                              — Rachel Jayne Groover, Creator of Art of Feminine Presence
 
 
How does a vibrant, playful child change into being a frightened, lonely and invisible teenager? Kathleen lost her childhood joy when her mother's anger and abuse terrified her. She found safety in becoming a people pleaser. At university she was drawn to Yoga and loved the philosophy and practices of self-development. They felt like a balm to her wounded Soul. Years later she trained as an Assistant Teacher in the Vipassana Meditation tradition.

Throughout her life Kathleen suffered from chronic poor health, fatigue and headaches. She tried many healing modalities before experiencing rapid improvement with the BodyTalk System of Healthcare.

Bodytalk so excited Kathleen she trained as a therapist immediately and built a small practice. She then faced an identity crisis – would she choose Vipassana or BodyTalk and Spiritual Healing?

Over the course of her life Kathleen searched for answers to her health issues, as well as her confusion about her life's purpose. She explored a variety of philosophies in an attempt to make sense of her life. She gradually pieced together an understanding of the emotional wounds that underlay her health and confidence issues. This memoir is an account of her journey to health and happiness and her mission to help others.

What you don't know about Social Security can hurt you



"Your first and most important priority to prepare for retirement is to maximize your only source of inflation-adjusted lifetime income. To do this, you need to understand the different filing strategies." - Philip Wilson
 
In my experience, most advisors do not even realize the importance of the Social Security decision or its value to the retiree. They don't value the benefit as they should. Their focus is on client assets not Social Security income. They do not realize that different filing strategies must be employed. I have spent a lot of my time undoing recommendations that other advisers gave to clients that are just incorrect, recommendations such as eligibility or at what age to file. They mean well, but just do not know the rules.
 
This book covers six major filing strategies. There are obviously many more situations involved in Social Security filing, but for most of the public, you will fall into one or more of these six strategies. If you understand these six strategies, you'll probably not be one of the casualties, which means you should receive all the money to which you're legally entitled. You will also notice the different strategies apply to different situations in life. Disability, widow, single, married, divorced--all require a different filing method. This is a big part of why mistakes are made because someone files a certain way initially but needs to change because of a life event. Obviously, some will apply to you, while others will not, depending on your situation.

Some European Humor



I may write something completely different in the future, but with this book I'm on a dangerous path; I'll try to make you laugh. The book is not long, but hopefully it'll take some time to read it if your laughter prevents you from reading it fast.

I may write something completely different in the future, but with this book I'm on a dangerous path; I'll try to make you laugh. The book is not long, but hopefully it'll take some time to read it if your laughter prevents you from reading it fast.


     Hopefully you'll enjoy reading about when Doc Hooligan came to town to draw against a local boy in the first story: "The Duel". 

     In "And That's How We Came On Top Of Things", you'll learn why there are only ten commandments. This gripping story will no doubt leave you not only flabbered, but also ghasted! 
 
     In "Hoofs and Proofs", the story about the horse that felt trapped in a man's body, will make you rear and neigh! 
 
     The fourth is called "The Lesson". Does the Mayor of Locobano really have a snake's personality? 
 
     In another, "As the Crow Flew Gently Backwards", you'll learn about a young man's encounter with a mature woman, who in this case happens to be a bit…no, I mean a witch! 
 
     The sixth, "From Here to Hanukkah", features a nostalgic elderly lady whose love life catches up with her. 
 
     Learn "How To Fill a Void" when three people have just died simultaneously, but uh oh! There's only one vacancy into heaven! How. Will. It. End? 
 
     "Mr. Flinch Is Coming For Dinner", is future realism (does that genre exist?) about an old lady who defies the authorities just to make organic meatballs for her gentleman caller. True love, isn't it? 
 
In "For No Extra Charge", you'll get to learn about Hyacynthia Blowdiddle and her brief adventure with a devoted taxidermist. 
 
     Oh-oh - in "Snafu In Sector Z", there's a crisis behind enemy line in this military mission in a foreign country; the Colonel's wife's dog is missing! But help has arrived. Major Quacker has flown in to hopefully save the day. 
 
     The "The Fisherman Who Asked The Sea", is a short-short piece that will tell you about the lonely fisherman who dealt with his situation. 
 
    Finally, the last story has a bit of a tragic base. But what's comedy without a serious and slightly tragic foundation? The magic between a boy and his grandfather is described here, in "Learning To Fly".
 
I hope to hear giggles and laughter from the universe. If you like the stories, please write a review!
