Danielle's iPhone is protected by bright purple rubber while mine is encased in matt red metal. Cynthia's iPhone chirps with the sound of a hundred cicadas when she gets a call, Bernie's buzzes like a small frustrated toy, and Rachel's chimes like a Buddhist monk's bell. But one thing they do have in common is our shared love for the handy dandy Notes from the Universe On the Go app.

As a self-professed addict to Mike Dooley's daily email of ""Notes from the Universe"" (and yes, one of the women who may have been a little raucous at his Bagdad show here in Portland recently...) this app makes me so happy!

I am not the most technically savvy person in the office, but I have been getting used to the world of 'apps' from my friends here. Karen showed me the Battery Power app that can let me check how much more talking time I have on my phone, and Bernie introduced me to the movie app which has ALL the info on movies now playing -- times, reviews, trailers, etc. I even have one for recipes. But my favorite has to be Mike Dooley's Notes App!

I love how I can shake my phone and it gives me a new ""Note""! Just like the books, whenever I get a ""Note"" my eyes open just a little wider and my day feels a little sunnier. You can even choose a particular area of focus -- for example if you would like to be inspired or cheered by some words on gratitude or loss, hope or confidence you can choose from those, and more. Honestly though, I love to shake it and have something random come up. I'm truly letting the Universe speak to me!
