Look Out World, Here I Come. Or Maybe Not.

Here we go again. All the talk of new year’s resolutions. Fact is, most people who do RESOLVE at the first of the year have DISSOLVED by mid-February.

Oh Gosh. It’s Here.

When I first starting writing this blog in 2009, I went to a class about the “right way” to write a blog. They spent the majority of the time telling us how to “monetize” our posts….getting a massive number of followers which would attract the Googles of the world, which would attract the advertisers of […]

Finding Our Rock Solid Inner Home.

A Life Well-Lived.

Today is my mother’s birthday. She would have been 97. Over a period of many years, Alzheimer’s finally had its way with her.  And, even though, for several years, she had no idea who I was, when we went to visit…..she would always lean in, beckoning me to come closer and whisper, “I would love […]
