Hello Good People! I (Sooz) have been on a three month sabbatical as I prepare for my daughter’s wedding and I have missed you! The summers in Maine are quite busy with visitors coming to enjoy the perfection that is a “Maine summer.” Life has been full to overflowing with Goodness and in two weeks [...]

A Wave Of Goodness

I found out last night that a man who walks by our house everyday is the son of a friend. I have seen him many times but felt no real connection to him until I learned he belongs to someone I care about. All of a sudden I felt linked to him. I felt like [...]

  “Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut   This post is [...]

Today Mark talks to us about redemption ~ Redemption… Don’t you love the sound of that word?  Man, I do!!!  It conjures up a lot of sweet nostalgia of my childhood in addition to the beauty and satisfaction that surrounds the grown up version of the word. Redemption is, in essence, taking something of little [...]

Crushing Cancer with Goodness

As I write, my dear friend and co-founder of SaveGoodness, Meri Lee, and her husband Carl are flying cross country.  They are on a mission that will require them to be away for a number of weeks. Their journey will take them from the hills of Tennessee to the coast of California, for one reason. [...]

What’s Become of You?

Somewhere between the cradle and the grave most of us get lost. We eventually wake up wondering why life is “less than” what we’d expected, why everyday seems the same, wondering how in the world we got here – and where, by the way, are we anyway? When we were little life made sense. We [...]

The Warriors Among Us

I sat with a dear friend over lunch this week, catching up on life – the trials and the triumphs. We talked about everything from teenage angst to movie making. It just so happens that she and her husband have a most interesting “hobby.” They make films. They don’t have a Hollywood budget, but they [...]

Goodness is about overflow. It should bubble up from you like water from a spring. If you allow your heart to be nourished with Beauty, Trueness, Love and Life-Giving Things every day, then you will begin to see Goodness increase in you and overflow will eventually be inevitable.  Fact is, however, sometimes we need to [...]

Your Fate in Their Hands

Several years ago I was called for jury duty. I would love to say that when notified, I felt proud and eager to serve my community, but I didn’t.  I completely dreaded it. When I got the slip with the date to report, I winced and tried to forget about it. I told myself it [...]

The Goodness Diet

When was the last time you felt AWE? You know, the feeling you get when the impossibly pink and plum sunset sinks down into the ocean like a lone sunbather slipping in for the last dip of the day…the swell you feel when the sky electrifies with shooting spires of glittering light as the cannon  explodes with colorful Chinese fireworks. What about [...]
