  • Letter to the Editor: Save Owls Head!

    On Life’s Purpose

    By John English


    Libraries and bookstores abound with titles that purport to show me how to determine my life purpose
    – “Discovering Your Soul’s Purpose”, “Pathway to Purpose”, “The Meaningful Life”, etc. I have also noted
    that there are many “life coaches” and self-styled gurus who are prepared to guide me to a life of
    greater fulfillment and happiness. The surfeit of these offerings suggests that meaning and purpose are
    important components of life, and that if I’m not trying to determine what my life purpose is, I should
    be. The cynic in me also recognizes the cash value of my search for meaning for the many spiritual
    counselors waiting to assist in my search, for a price.

    Ask an Organizer

    Q:  My Get Up and Go, Got Up and Went.  How do I get started organizing?
    —Lost in Little Harbour


    A:  Dear Lost,
    Finding the energy to begin organizing can feel like an insurmountable task.  Our stuff
    impacts our mental health. It’s scientifically proven that unorganized and cluttered
    spaces can lead to higher levels of cortisol resulting in anxiety. In short, our mess
    causes stress!
