PB & J or BB & J?

Well I was going to write about my recent juice cleanse experience but let’s face it – it’s not that exciting. But it was a beautiful, bold, and literally juicy experience 🙂 So tonight I’m going with PB & J vs. BB & J. Peanut butter and jelly versus what?! Wait peanut butter and jelly?! Yes I’m talking about that boring, tired, sad little sandwich we all consumed as kids. Yes that crustless, mostly empty calorie sandwich you might make every single damn day for your blessed cherubs. Have you ever wondered why it was and still remains a go to? Why was  ...

HAPPY (EARLY) NEW YEAR

I said it last year and I’ll say it again. September is the new January. It is the perfect time to evaluate where you are; right here, right now – physically, mentally, and spiritually. Perhaps you had an epic summer full of friends & family, sun, and fun. Or perhaps you worked a lot and beached it too little. Regardless, here you are. Treating September like January helps to keep us from getting stuck in the same old song and dance routine we are used to performing.  I do want to acknowledge though that saying good-bye to the previous “year” AKA summer can be  ...

CONFESSIONS OF A CAMP NURSE

There is a very special place here on this little sandbar known as Cape Cod. A place known as Camp Wingate*Kirkland (or Camp W*K). But it’s not the location that makes this place so special; although I can’t complain about the beautiful wooded location and the “office view” of Elisha’s Pond. You see what makes this place so magical is an exclusive recipe of campers, staff, and culture. I had no idea what I was getting myself into last year when I agreed to come on staff as a nurse in the health center. Let’s just say I was counting the days to the  ...

DEAR TOURISTS

As the 4th of July is rapidly approaching, what better time to write this letter? So here it goes, from 1 Cape Codder to a fellow human … Dear Visitor, Tourist, or (as my dad always called “them”) “Timmie’s, It is summer. Ah summer! Arguably one of the best times of the year. Or is it? It depends on who you ask. If you ask my father you will get an earful about how “everything has changed.” How town is full of Timmies and nothing is the same anymore. How he can’t go ANYWHERE because of traffic. Ah yes, summer. SUMMER LOCAL – SUMMER NOT  ...

SHARING IS CARING

Today I spoke at my high school alma mater, Tabor Academy. One of my fellow alumni friends asked if I would be willing to share my speech. What is not to love about sharing!? So here it is: Good morning! My name is Emily Johnson. I graduated from Tabor in 1998. My 4 years here were some of the best years of my life. I loved rowing on the crew team as well as being part of the cross country team. I performed horribly on the AP physics and French exam. Nonetheless; I did graduate from college! I am a registered nurse and also play a variety of other roles in both my personal and  ...

REST IN PEACE

The following is for my fellow yogis AKA Love Warriors in teacher training with me at Power Yoga of Cape Cod (even if you aren’t a yogi there is value in reading the post!) Fellow yogis, calling hours will be held tomorrow at 8:30 am in Dennisport, MA followed by a celebration of life at 9:15 am led by Jill Abraham. For the past 7 months we have witnessed death and may I say it has been absolutely beautiful. We have held space for one another, quietly watching as masks have been removed and buried; as lies have been laid to rest; and as old ways of being slowly fade away just like  ...

HOW TO BE A WARRIOR

The word warrior is getting a lot of of use these days. Can’t imagine why…just can’t seem to put a finger on it (so she says with just a smidge of sarcasm). Could it just be because people are starting to wake the H – E – double hockey sticks up!?! I mean look around people! We live in a fake it till you make it, numbed out, distracted society. The most recent study I read at the end of last year states one in six Americans take some kind of psychiatric drugs — mostly antidepressants. I myself used to be a consumer of Zoloft. As unconscious as the world may  ...
