The final straw…

So, there could have been a lot of things that spurred a change in my behaviors. My father had serious heart problems, a massive heart attack at 54 (quadruple bypass and a valve replacement) and passed away at 63. That could do it. But it doesn't. My brother recently suffered a mild heart-attack at 57. He lives near me. I see the changes he's making. Maybe it should be that. All these wake up calls. But it wasn't. It was something much simpler, much more vane. A tennis bracelet. My wrist is so thick, I cannot wear my tennis bracelet. I can't wear any bracelets.

My brother’s keeper…

I woke this morning having the urge to write, but not having much to say. That has been happening more often lately. I'm sure it's just because my routine is tight and mostly the same day-to-day in the current state of affairs. Yesterday had some interesting turns. For months we have been trying to hire …

Questioning how much food and paper good supplies we need. How are you doing? How are you adapting to the sudden shift in our lives? For our family, it's …

In the midst…

In the midst of all the Covid-19 craziness I was reminded of a few things this morning as I looked out my window. The most awe inspiring, calming moment though was when the words "God is good" came to my mind. The words flooded throughout me when I looked at the gorgeous sunrise -- The …

I could never…

I've been hearing these words a lot lately from many different people. I could never... SingWriteDo yogaPaintDo mathRide a motorcycle The list is endless; as are the reasons why...the sheer volume of excuses is mind boggling and sometimes, when I hear people speak like this, I think there's something very, very wrong with me.

My Valentine…

I don't take enough time to brag on the man in my life. But really, I need to. I woke this morning, early as always, made my coffee and in my half-awake stuper, made my way to my writing desk. It took me a moment to compute the lovely flowers, fun candies, card, and small …
