A slight departure…

I've thought about this only briefly, but decided to take the leap. For many years - over 20 if truth be told - I've been writing a couple of books. The opening below is from the first one. My thinking is that I'll write bits of this book over the next six months. You can …

It’s time to…

I really need to stop whining about the same old stuff so am going to infuse some fresh air tonight. Before opening the window, however, I want to thank the folks who sent encouraging notes. I’m still waffling, sadly. Today was the first day I actually said to myself, “What the hell am I doing?” …

By the light of…

On this night of the eclipse, we’ve a clear sky so good viewing is highly probable. In fact, I think I can hear all the astronomers shouting excitedly from the observatory down the road. I’ve never seen a blood moon myself, so am looking forward to it, too. The prime time will be 10:47 PM. …

Looking back at my future…

But, it was a beautiful day even though I accomplished little, except to reconnect with a remarkable ageless goddess. The best kind of sweet. Wishing for connections, interactions, and meetings that affirm your value and …

The best medicine…

I so admire people who are funny. Not the punking, pranking kind of funny, although that takes talent, but the witty kind of funny. Have you ever seen Hugh Grant on Letterman? He’s witty. It goes without saying the late, great, and utterly profoundly iconic Robin Williams was hysterical. And I could go on. It’s …

Togetherness…

What secret do you hold inside that if voiced, even in the softest of whispers, would free your soul? Can you keep a secret? Of course, I say. I’m agreeing to keep mum about a surprise party. Easy peasy. We have reasons to hide information like this all the time. Christmas presents, special events, and …

A spoon full…

It amazes me how quickly sugar muffles me now. I remember reading somewhere that alcohol messes extremely with blood glucose levels. Besides being poison to the body which wants to immediately excrete it, alcohol negatively impacts glucose levels every time it’s ingested. Talk about imbalance! So, I’m thinking the tub of chocolate peanut butter Haagen-Dazs, …
