Miss You

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh
I’ve been holding out so long
I’ve been sleeping all alone
Lord I miss you
Last night I danced to the Rolling Stones song “Miss You.” Prior to that, I had been talking about my brother Ronny. Lord, I miss him.
In this season of celebration it is difficult for some to move forward due to the departure of those close to them. The first Christmas without Ronny was terribly sad and difficult. Even the kids were quiet that year. But, I was also grateful to remember him, honor him, and be with my entire family.
Ronny and his wife Mel, paved the way for me to attend therapy school. Without that experience I’m clueless to where I would be in this world now. In other words, Ronny’s life touched me on many levels.
Today is Ronny’s Earth Birthday. I’m not sure where you go when you die, but physically they don’t call Mother Earth home.
Ronny was a clown, a good friend, a traveler, a person who made people feel comfortable. Unfortunately, he became lost in life and left this world way to soon. Twenty-six years later, people still talk about him and share a tale of Ron or Turk. I still talk to Ronny, I still dream about him, I still relate to him.
Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh
Lord I miss you. Happy Birthday Ronny!!! Love, Bez*

Move Your Feet

A classic line that I hear every time I plan a BIG adventure is, “How do you do it?” The answer is simple, I plan and I save. Planning is critical. I often hear people say, “I always dreamed of going to___________,” but they don’t put forth the energy to get there. The dream remains just that, a dream. Polarity Therapy maintains, “Energy follows thought.” However, thought alone will not get you there.

My buddy Bob says, “You can pray all you want but at some point you have to move your feet!” Meaning, you need to take action.

In September, I was attending a class in Tucson. On the first day, a friend held up a class flyer and said, “Nancy, we should do this.”

All I saw was the word “Hawaii” which made me smile broadly, but another class was of no interest to me. I replied, “No thanks, but you can go.”

Her eyes cast downward and her beautiful smile vanished. “No, I don’t have the money,” she said.

I countered, “Sure you can, all you need to do is save and GO!” Her smile returned, her eyes shot up, “Really, that’s all?”


Time and money, the biggies. Also, where do you want to expend your energy?

How many times have you heard, “When XYZ happens, then I can____________.” XYZ may or may not happen. If you set reasonable goals, maybe, just maybe, you can get to Hawaii or any other place on this planet. Look up, smile and move your feet… it’s all within your reach. Be well… Nancy T
