A blog - but let's make this a group discussion!

You know what I love most about life?  The fact that so long as you are living, nothing is set in stone. 

You know what I hate most about life?  The fact that so long as you are living, nothing is set in stone.

It’s the ultimate double-edged sword.  Nothing is certain.  Nothing is guaranteed.  That’s the down side.

But the upside is the...

We aren’t even going to discuss how long it’s been since I wrote something – or the fact that I’ve started my last few posts with essentially that same phrase.

Today, as I continue my quest to get back on track with my life, something hit me. 

I was in the ladies room, walking by the mirror and remembered that I’m trying to improve my posture – I’ve...

Calm down – I know, change can be scary.  Just breathe.

OK, maybe I’m talking to myself and not any of you.

So if you’re here you’re looking at a brand new website!  I would *like* to say it was carefully crafted and thought through.  I would also like to say I hit PowerBall last night, but neither of those things are true.

The truth of the matte...

Once again I find myself returning to the subject of inanimate loss…mostly.

I say mostly because this time is actually a combination of losing a material item, as well as a bit of a sense of security.

On Sunday, my car was broken into.  Sad, tragic, yes.  Of course the part of it that absolutely disgusts me is WHERE my car was at the time.  Where you...

Apparently I’m a fan of talking about Change, given that this is my second post dedicated to the subject.  Last time was almost a year ago actually…time flies when you’re having fun.  Fortunately, I’m talking about a different kind of Change today. 

The kind of Change I’m thinking about is people.  We often hear people talk about how much they’...

Many moons ago I routinely was a recipient of acupuncture.  I know, I know…some of you have just gasped in horror and asked Why???  Why would someone voluntarily let someone stick needles all over their body.  Well the truth of the matter is it’s not actually painful…for the most part.  But I’ve digressed from my point already.  My acupuncturist wa...

Change is good…right?  Well, no.  Not always.  During the 2008 elections, Change became a buzzword.  It’s what Obama campaigned on.  But it wasn’t exactly a new stance to take.  Locally, when Adrian Fenty ran for mayor that was a large portion of his platform too.  In fact, I think in some variation or another, it is what every politician campaigns...

As we enter this holiday weekend full of celebrations of Americana, fireworks, and the best invention ever—grilled food—I pause to look at what it is we’re really celebrating, and what it means.  Sadly, many Americans are not fully clear on what this day celebrates, and even sadder, if you Google it the first entry has to do with the movie, and the...

Life is all about reaching markers of achievement.  From the moment we’re born everyone around us counts them.  Our first word, first crawl, first step, first haircut, first date, first wedding…ok, we all hope there is only one wedding, but… 

Today was my youngest son’s graduation from Kindergarten.  A big milestone.  Now, there is part of...

Today I find myself mourning a loss…that of my Kindle.  I’m eternally absentminded and as a result tend to misplace things all the time.  Generally speaking they turn up after a while, and frequently in places like the shelf of a closet, a drawer in my kitchen, the pocket of the car, or (once) on top of my car—and how that TomTom survived overnight...
