Mary Steenburgen: The Gift of Giving

That is an excerpt from an interview I did with Mary Steenburgen for the February 2009 “Valentine” issue of Luxury Las Vegas magazine. Talking with Mary was comfortable and easy, like two old friends reconnecting after many years.

Over the course of two-and-a-half hours, our nonstop conversation was filled with some surprises, some laughs and some tender moments as she talked about her childhood in Arkansas; her acting career; her marriage to Ted Danson; their children who she adores; Nell’s Compass, the candle company she and her daughter Lily started, which is named after Mary’s mom; the Home Décor shop, Rooms & Gardens, that she co-owns in Santa Monica; her close friendship with Bill and Hillary Clinton; and her and Ted’s social and environmental activism.

These Awkward Times

Frankly there does not seem to be much to celebrate these days! Aggressive/Depressives are running the show in Washington and in other world capitals. They are squandering our precious financial, physical, emotional and spiritual resources, abusing our planet, turning their backs on genocide, denying the real challenges and missing the true opportunities of our time. There is also so much media madness that feeds our obsessive compulsive focus on war, possible pandemics, and violence while offering us trivialized forms of entertainment called ‘reality shows.’ But unless I am willing to deal with my despair and admit the absence of celebration in my life, I will not only continue to slide deeper into this emotional muck and mire that confounds much of the world today, but I will also continue contributing to the conditions that are causing it.

The Coming Demographic Revolution

We are on the edge of one of the greatest social, cultural, economic and demographic revolutions in history. Over the course of the next few decades a significant percentage of the U.S. population as much as 50% of the world population will be over 50 years of age. This demographic tsunami will require us to redefine our personal values, consider new and different priorities, learn new skills, experiment with better use of our available resources and, above all, learn to live more consciously and age more wisely. We explore how. Continue reading

Love Letter To The World

In this Wellness Post, Jeddah Mali, asks, “When we wake up each morning, do we give orders for the sun to pass over the sky, for the birds to start singing, for all the creatures to awake and go about their business? Do we send instructions for our breathing to change its rhythm, for our pupils to bring in the correct amount of light? Do we signal for the tide to turn, the moon to wane, the seasons to pass? No, it’s obvious that we don’t. But if we are not doing it, what is? What is taking care of it all? Continue reading
