I’m smiling because I appreciate the miracle of shade on such a bright and sunny day.

Podcast Recap

I let go of life on autopilot and learn to see the miracles all around. We celebrate a HUGE bravery report moment for BC Petra. Welcome to New BCs Stephanie from West Virginia who reached out on FB and Theresa who posted on Day 9. We get a sample of comments from Mary S., BC Laura R (soon to be S), Dawny and Amy from WI. Thanks again to Amazon shoppers. Big thanks also to Kindred Spirit, Josephine who left a kind review on USA iTunes, and a big, big smooch to BC Mary S. who sent me a heart-touching gift in the mail. I read a snippet of the blog post I wrote about what Mary’s gift meant to me. We meet my friend and new BC JoJo from CA who stopped by the blog to comment.

Sturdy wooden bench under a tree - you can see the tall, waving grass surrounds it.

The famous Next To Top Zen Bench – where I record most of the shows from the mountain.


Pink blossoms on a skinny, low growing cactus along the rocks of the path

Caught these small delicate flowers growing up from a cactus-like plant in rocky dry conditions. This inspired me.

I love how my smile looks in this one. I took it immediately following the silly tongue selfie (you can see it below). Sometimes we need to be our own comedians!

Podcast Recap

House cleaning bites me in the knee, so hiking is out and the podcast rock is in! I decide to let go of expecting the worst. I tell a story about my miracle party dress. Thanks to Amy from WI, Dawny and Rabbit for their kind comments on a day that was tough for me. Many comment snippets from our old pal, BC Dave. Dawny writes a humorous response to last show. COD goes to every other week for a while.

Laurie makes a weird face with raised eyebrow and sideways tongue

I leave my pride in the fallen leaves and have a GRAND time making silly selfie faces while recording Day 137


Laurie and her friend all dressed up at a party

My friend and I at the swanky LA party thrown by my VO agents, Liz and Jimmy from The Atherton Group. Gotta love when your life looks all glam! (But remember, looks are deceiving – my Mortifying Dusty House of Horrors was still awaiting my return to pumpkin status).

Hear again or for the first time, Dave’s wonderful good-bye message and Audio Drama performed by pro voice actors. It starts right around the 1 hour and 40 minute Mark on Day 120. And while you’re at it, listen to the WHOLE big old long thing again, it was a SHOW OF BEAUTY – Filled with BCs, surprises and fun stuff. I think I’ll take a long walk next week and listen again myself.

Feeling proud, brave and stoked that I made it up the mountain.

Podcast Recap

Defeating negative self-talk where we spiral down the hopeless rabbit hole by wishing things away. I come clean about conflicted feelings about day 130. Gratitude to BC Karen for her encouraging note and to BC Susie for her kind phone call. Reading recommendations from Rabbit, Mary S. and me. Hello to new BC Lucie. Dawny makes me laugh with her reaction to my cooking story from the last show. Mary S. surprises me by restarting up the Coffee Klatch! How to send me cards, letters or other physical items. A walk down memory lane about the cool items I’ve received from BCs in the past. A deep and heartfelt comment conversation between Mary S. and me that triggers my bravery and I share the truth about my eating behavior of late and my feelings about it.

Greeted by Mark’s beautiful roses when I returned home from recording day 133. He has such a green thumb!

Back down to the park with my trusty Roland 05 recorder and a bottle of water where I’m actually chatting with you as I walk.

Podcast Recap

Walking around the park again! I ask BCs to stop by and post hellos. I let go the idea that I need to be different than myself. Thanks to Dawny for being such a supportive BC. Lessons from voice acting and my latest commercial clip. Appreciating Amy from Wisconsin and Sue from UK and their quilting talents. Why it’s good not to eat our feelings – thoughts after watching TLC’s My 600 lb. Life.
