Taking the Kids for a Walk on the Wild Side: An Interview With Sharon Anderson
by Carol Bedrosian

I met Sharon Anderson for the first time at Harvest Gathering in 1997 at Mt. Washington, MA. Living in upstate Vermont near the Canadian border, Sharon had traveled many hours alone by car to attend the gathering and she arrived close to dark with a dozen or so twenty-foot teepee poles attached to the top of her Volvo station wagon. As the coordinator for the gathering, I knew Sharon planned to set up a replication of an authentic nineteenth century encampment, including a wigwam that she would be staying in during the weekend, so I was quite concerned when she arrived so late that darkness was falling, she would need help with setting up the poles and teepee and I could find no volunteers around to help.

There Once Was A World: A 900-Year Chronicle of the Shtetl of Eishyshok
The Quest For Eishyshok: Restoring A Vanished Past
by Yaffa Eliach

In August 1979 I was on my way to Russia, in the midst of a fact-finding mission to Eastern Europe. As a member of President Carter's Holocaust Commission, which was charged with making a recommendation for an appropriate United States memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, I had spent several days traveling to the various capitals of the Holocaust Kingdom—Warsaw, Treblinka, Auschwitz-Birkenau, and Plaszow among them. Now, flying south of Vilna (Vilnius), on a plane from Warsaw to Kiev, I became aware that somewhere beneath the clouds lay the town of Eishyshok, home to the early years of my brief, interrupted childhood.

Grooming Products: Can They Be Causing Fido's Itch?
by Sevi Kay

There are so many controversies on whether some ingredients in pet products are the main reason why our dogs seem to be developing so many strange illnesses, rashes and allergies. Before I go on, I just want to point out that there are two sides to every coin and that we must look at both sides. With that said, here is a general look at the most common pet grooming practices and products.

Me Talk Pretty One Day
by David Sedaris

Anyone who watches even the slightest amount of TV is familiar with the scene: An agent knocks on the door of some seemingly ordinary home or office. The door opens, and the person holding the knob is asked to identify himself. The agent then says, "I'm going to ask you to come with me."

Who Moved
My Cheese

An Amazing Way to Deal With Change

By Dr. Spencer Johnson

Price: $11.97


Change can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. The message of Who Moved My Cheese? is that all can come to see it as a blessing, if they understand the nature of cheese and the role it plays in their lives. Who Moved My Cheese? is a parable that takes place in a maze. Four beings live in that maze: Sniff and Scurry are mice--nonanalytical and nonjudgmental, they just want cheese and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Hem and Haw are "littlepeople," mouse-size humans who have an entirely different relationship with cheese. It's not just sustenance to them; it's their self-image. Their lives and belief systems are built around the cheese they've found. Most of us reading the story will see the cheese as something related to our livelihoods--our jobs, our career paths, the industries we work in--although it can stand for anything, from health to relationships. The point of the story is that we have to be alert to changes in the cheese, and be prepared to go running off in search of new sources of cheese when the cheese we have runs out.

Dr. Johnson, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and many other books, presents this parable to business, church groups, schools, military organizations--anyplace where you find people who may fear or resist change. And although more analytical and skeptical readers may find the tale a little too simplistic, its beauty is that it sums up all natural history in just 94 pages: Things change. They always have changed and always will change. And while there's no single way to deal with change, the consequence of pretending change won't happen is always the same: The cheese runs out. --Lou Schuler, Amazon.com

Sometimes Blame Is Just Our Own Responsibility In Disguise


by Bob Olson, OfSpirit.com Editor

In an effort to keep up with the times and compete in the major media arena, we made the decision to start using more celebrities in our magazine. We didn’t have the budget to pay for famous movie stars, so we dressed up a pig in fancy sunglasses instead. We figured that people would focus on the movie star sunglasses and not notice what was really behind the garb. Unfortunately, no matter how much we disguised the pig to look like a movie star, it was still just a pig in fancy sunglasses.

This is an article about taking personal responsibility for our own lives. When we stop blaming others for the negative outcomes in our life, we can learn and grow from each experience. Disguising our own responsibility by placing the focus on other people inhibits our ability to learn from our experiences.

For twelve years, I investigated accidents as a private investigator for personal injury attorneys. There is a lot of finger pointing going on in the world of personal injury lawsuits. I had one case where some parents sued a skateboard manufacturer because their child fell off the skateboard. Another person blamed a ladder manufacturer because he fell off his ladder. I even had a case where a guy was suing a chainsaw manufacturer because he cut through his leg instead of the tree. In all three cases, the juries came to the same conclusion: it was an obviously foreseeable accident. The juries said that the plaintiffs assumed responsibility when they climbed the potentially dangerous ladder, used the potentially dangerous chainsaw and allowed their child to play with the potentially dangerous skateboard.

My friend recently told me about a computer virus she received by email. She blamed her colleague for emailing it to her. What she didn’t realize was that the virus took over her colleague’s computer and sent emails to everyone in his address book. It was the virus “creator” who sent her the email, not her friend.

If my friend took responsibility for her own computer virus, she may have learned from the experience to take preventative measures against future viruses: to install some virus prevention software or to stop opening attached email files. Instead, her focus was on blaming her colleague and she learned nothing.

My father died five years ago from lung cancer. Shortly before his death, someone discovered that an x-ray had been taken years prior that showed the beginning of his cancerous tumor. His doctor had not seen the tumor, and it went undiscovered until it was too late.

My father's lawyer friend told him he had a solid medical malpractice case against the doctor who overlooked the revealing x-ray that might have saved his life. My father looked at his friend and said, “But that’s the same doctor who encouraged me to stop smoking for twelve years, yet I didn’t listen. I can’t blame him for something I did to myself.” Perhaps we have the most clarity when our lives are about to end.

Sometimes other people really are to blame for the negative occurrences in our life. But sometimes our finger pointing is just a disguise to take the focus off ourselves. Wisdom comes in knowing the difference. If you are playing the blame game, take a step back to refocus your attention. If you are diverting attention from your own responsibility, you are missing out on an opportunity to learn and grow. Disguised responsibility is known as blame. You can dress up a pig in fancy sunglasses, but underneath the brilliant disguise, all you really have is a pig.
