The law of reciprocity–karma–is always at play in our lives, whether we are aware of it or not.  This Christmas season could be a perfect time to observe the wonder of its workings.  2011 has been a tough financial year for many.  Yet, precisely because of this, we have a unique opportunity to experience the immediate “effects” of extending ourselves to others:  Be it through tucking personal notes into greeting cards, serving hot meals at a soup kitchen, walking or playing with abandoned pets at a local animal shelter, visiting shut-ins, or taking one lonely child carolling or to see her first Christmas lights display, we find the immediate sense of warmth and joy derived from giving the gift of Self to be so much more fulfilling than the short-lived tummy tickle the giving of any object could possibly bring.  Though money might be scarce, this year has the potential to be one of the most lavishly rich seasons of your life.  Happy Holidays!

    TEN DIFFICULT WOMEN: THEIR IMPACT AND LEGACY is selling well on Amazon, Kindle, and through various book sellers.
    If you would like your local bookstore to order you a copy (especially Barnes & Noble stores which have a very quick turn-around) simply provide the title and ISBN #: 978-1-4626-9549-2

    a 2012 USA Best Book Award Finalist in the category: "Spirituality:Inspirational," has run its two year contract with the original publisher. It has been picked up by another and should be released as a reprint by the end of 2014. Stay tuned!

    The title of my April/May column, "Perspectives," in Pet Tails Magazine is: "The Cat Lady." It tells the story of a woman in Pittsburgh who devoted her retirement years to rescuing the most hopeless, hapless cats from a local shelter and the interesting, elegant lifestyle she and seven of these lucky kitties lived before her recent death.

    NOTE TO ANIMAL LOVERS: All Pet Tails' articles can be read on-line at www.pettailsmagazine.com as soon as removed from news stands and replaced with current month's issue. In this case, after June 1st.
