Good Morning Dear Readers,

As we are approaching a very special time of year, some thoughts come to me about Palm Sunday and what that means:  Have you ever thought about re-setting your GPS?????

Palm Sunday Thoughts

By:  Rae Jacob

Energetic stillness is what I hear and feel!  It is at once strange and blissful.

Just before I woke this morning the scene of Palm Sunday was alive and vivid.  The awareness and gift of observing again the fleeting nature of success, fame, recognition and acclaim was not to be ignored.  This “worldly” approval is so transitory-one day hailed as a hero-the next day as a criminal.

Good Morning Dear Readers,

The Acupuncture for Your Soul family had a great time at the Tucson Festival of Books.  I will be sharing some pictures and today I wanted to share a letter from a reader.


I really enjoyed your book – seriously. The stories and the photos are so genuine and honest, I don’t think I would change anything. I personally believe that the world is longing for more “realness” right now. These stories – the way they are told and the photos that have been selected for each feel “real.” Being real sounds easy to do but it surprisedly polished out of most every thing in the world these days.
