Recently I was attempting to de-clutter a room in my house when I came upon a small box of old photos.

Uh oh, I said to myself.  The box wasn’t marked so I had no idea what period of time these photos were from or who was captured on film.

I knew that taking the envelopes out and opening them would slow me down and perhaps even stop my project to get rid of stuff.

But still I went ahead.

I decided to roll the dice and walk down memory lane.

In general, I like to think of pictures … Read More

Buh Bye 2017!

December 31st, 2017
Posted By:

Today, the last day of 2017, tends to be a day when most of us mentally review events that happened to us during the past year and I’ve concluded, that for me, 2017 was a year of feeling it all. 2017 took me on a most bumpy and unexpected ride and I must say I am happy to say Buh Bye to one rollercoaster of a year. From the beginning of January to the end of December, 2017 was 12 months of experiencing pretty much every emotion that there is to feel as a human being.  This unpredictability of course… Read More

Help! I Can’t Find The Right Card

December 7th, 2015

This has happened to me at least a million times and I bet this has happened to you too! You find yourself in the card section of CVS or your local card store and you’ve been standing there for about 10 to 15 minutes scanning the cards, taking them out one by one, reading them and then quickly rejecting them and putting them back. Totally Dissatisfied. Nope. Nope. Nope. When that happens, here’s what I’m usually thinking: I so liked the picture or drawing on that particular card and it was so so close to what I was looking for… Read More

This I Believe — Book Excerpt

April 10th, 2014

This-I-Believe “This I Believe” is a fantastic book that keeps on giving inspiration to me. I recently discovered this book quite by accident.  I was in Richmond, Virginia with my son and his girlfriend and we came upon a local non-profit that was giving away books for free.  I couldn’t believe it.  Free. Books. Free books are irresistible to me.  This would be similar to offering the editor of Vogue free clothes and accessories.  A room of tables full of all kinds of books just waiting for someone to come along and adopt them and take them home.  Where do I… Read More

Movement As Medicine

When I spend too much time in front of the computer or television I don’t feel right. I don’t feel as if my body and mind are working together as they were designed to do, and when this happens I know it’s a signal for me to get up off my inactive butt and do something physical. As in get the heart pumping and break a sweat. It doesn’t matter what you do, just get up and move.  Exercise anywhere and everywhere. Exercise is a gift you give yourself because it can reduce anxiety, clear toxins from your system and… Read More

Foxhole People

July 23rd, 2012
Posted By:

There are people in my life that I call  my “foxhole people.”  These are the family and friends that I would want next to me were I fighting a “war” involving a personal crisis and I found that I needed support to get through my “combat situation.”  I know that these people would instantly jump into the foxhole with me and they would stay with me through thick and thin until it was over.  It doesn’t matter who these people are, what matters to me is that I know the people who would do this for me and that I… Read More
