Creating Normal

March 30, 2017 - By: Helene Furst

Sometimes, your unique perspective makes you more of a commodity. Stay true to you!

“Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.” -Morticia Addams

We are all special and unique; and we are all different and normal at the same time. All of our quirkiness, eccentricities, and personal passions bring color to the world that can sometimes seem drab, with every day bringing “sameness." We all bring a little diversity to the table, and that is a great thing! It’s like walking into the art museum; if all the canvasses hanging in the gallery were identical, it would be a pretty boring place.

When we try to fit into society’s definition of “normal,” we deny the world the chance to view our fabulous inner spirit, and most likely, we feel pretty unhappy and dissatisfied. It takes some real courage... [Continued]

We have a tendency to look for happiness where it doesn’t and cannot exist; in possessions, quick thrills, shallow goals and in trying to impress the wrong people.

Dog Sitters

by Rozsa Gaston


Laugh out loud at the heart-pounding misadventures of Hint and Jack as they search for the world's most adorable lost dog . . .

When their friends take a cruise to Bermuda, strangers Hint Daniels and Jack Whitby are charged with looking after their dog. Then everything starts to go wrong...

In the leafy New York suburb of Bronxville, Hint is supposed to hand Percy off to Jack on day five of the ten days their friends are away. But at the handoff, the dog ends up running away. Neither is willing to tell their friends the bad news that Percy is missing. Instead, they spend five frantic days desperately searching for the schnoodle, with wildly different ideas on how to go about it. Between Jack's heavy-handed approach and Hint's otherworldly style, their per... [Continued]

Welcome to Morning Beans. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee, pull up a chair, and let's chat! I'm Helene and I am many things: writer, artist, mother, daughter, wife and friend. I write for all of us: the overworked homemaker, the executive goddesses, the poets, artists, and the wild hearted women

I believe life is about living your dreams, and sharing your story. And we all have stories. It's about being human and sometimes fallible.

Come visit often, and let my words move you, motivate you, and make you smile.

I believe in the power of words, in colorful conversations (often with strangers) and in the bright spark of friendship.

Welcome new friends.
