This year started with contemplation – again! It seems like I always start with that and end up with a mess and more questions than answers.

I went … Continue reading IS THIS THE TRUE WAY TO HAPPINESS?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING? My email joyously provides me with so many exciting things.

The greatest relief I have found in this scary world now is humor. My own humor and the beautiful humor of friends and family.

My last post got me thinking about my parents a lot. They supported us in so many ways, especially in ways that we never even knew. The last bit of my last blog talked about why I do not do major alcohol. This was formed by my parents and a well-played evening on their part. … Continue reading WERE YOUR FOLKS BRILLIANT?
It’s out there. You cannot see it. You cannot taste it. You cannot touch it. But you can feel it and you know it’s there…. THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING – EEEEK!!!!!
