I’m feeling great in this moment on the mountain. A last minute decision results in a bonus hike and a bonus episode.

Podcast Recap

I thank our Veterans for their service then muse about the unexpected benefits of mindfulness.

Podcast Recap

Happy Halloween everyone! In honor of the day I wrestle with letting go of some of my personal ghosts and turn my most dreaded body part into my new super power. We meet our three newest brave companions, Maria S, Sunny from Taiwan and new BC Kathy C. BC Dave shares his and his wife, BC Kathleen’s experiences with Disc Golf on the BC Bravery Sports report. Dave also weighs in via comments on his thoughts about body image, after my Oprah reaction on day 144. BC Jo sends Dawny and me her comment support after last show. Mark shares a very unique, cheap and effective way to clean your toilet ring on a brand new feature – The BC Cleaning Hacks Report.

Laurie with hair up contemplates the hotel pool.

Just before my Halloween morning swim. The cool weather gives me the pool to myself.

Podcast Recap

From Tacoma, WA, I record a special letting go of my past identity across from my old home on Puget Sound. Comments about Day 141 from BCs Josephine, Petra and Dawny. More ponderings along the waterfront as I process how it felt saying a final good-bye to Mom and how BC Dave gave me comfort in an unexpected way. We celebrate a huge milestone with BC Jo from the UK and hear some samples of her many comments. Stéfanie from Quebec returns with a brand new Secret Topic of the Day.

Emotional. We watch the gravediggers open my Dad’s grave in the veteran’s cemetery, so they can place my mom’s ashes in with him.


Flowers on the grave for Mom along with a small American flag to honor my dad's military service

After my parent’s grave a recovered with sod, a temporary marker was placed.

Podcast Recap

I ponder the sacrifices of our service men and women on Memorial Day. BC Rabbit’s comments from last show inspire me to think about letting go of my Racing Morning Mind and talk about how guided meditation has been working for me. Dawny presents a niece-approved round of Foolish Fun. Thank you Amazon shoppers for using the COD links to buy your products to support the show. Greetings to new BC Laura R (soon to be Laura S). My struggles with some aspects of social media and a new hashtag for us to connect – #CODBCs. Sue from the U.K. stops by to comfort me on My Motherless Day blog post. Comments from Dawny who shares a BIG milestone and BC Dave, who goes on the bravery report along with his wife, BC Kathy, for trying something new. Mark and my brave bike plans for next year’s birthday.

Sun shines brightly on the hiking path with foothills in the background. Bright blue skies and wispy clouds.

A spectacular view hiking on Memorial Day. The majesty of nature never fails to bring me some peace and sense of belonging.

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.
