Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

So this is my last installment on this topic at least for now. I wanted to finish with this because it has nothing to do with Kushi or Oshawa, and everything to do with our monthly journey through life as women. It is important ( mostly so that I don't get sued) that you consult a doctor before beginning any sort of regular exercise program.

Exercise in the macrobiotic practice is traditionally very limited. We know that when healing with macrobiotics, exercise is limited to the...

The Drama that is Driving me........

Some people are just really into the drama. Some people are just really into creating the drama. I have enough drama at home with my three kids. I don't need internet drama. I don't need drama at the gym and I don't need drama with the husband.

I think that when something that is so ridiculous that is completely and totally outlandish the best thing to do is to just ignore it completely. But that is me. I have a very thick skin and a very independent head. I feel like if I respond...

It seems "macro" is becoming hip again, but they are calling it "progressive macrobiotics" I wonder if that's macrobiotics "re-imagined" like something else that Dirk was involved in that was "re-imagined" and probably not...

A New Day

Posted 03-14-2015 at 03:33 PM by John Pickard

There are moments in life that you simply don't expect. Events that blindside you, come from out of nowhere. And very often they are precipitated by the simplest of things, but result in a life-changing realization – dare I say, revelation.

It's also very true that we tend to learn more from our mistakes than we do from our successes.

I should know. I'm the poster child for making mistakes. Some of them have been real doozies...

Further Ruminations

Posted 04-12-2015 at 06:01 PM by John Pickard

I've been doing some reflecting – I suppose that's well in keeping with my first blog post – and decided I should share some of it, and some of the realizations I've had the last couple of weeks.

One of those realizations is a recurring one: I can't reach all my goals overnight. That's been a problem with me my whole life, to be honest, setting a goal and throwing myself at it, then being disappointed when I can't make it work before dinner. I wind up spreading myself too...
