Remember When? | A Valentine’s Day Poem

Remember When? We laughed all night. We kissed. We fought. We dreamed of travel to far off places, While we sunk our feet in the sand. Remember When? We held each other’s hand, At a funeral, At a wedding, At our children’s graduation? Remember When? Our love was young, And crazy. So many years… And … Continue reading Remember When? | A Valentine’s Day Poem

Why Do We Love the Movies?

Every year I think “Movies Suck”.  I get frustrated with the super-heroes, sequels, reboots and remakes.  Don’t get me started on the remakes.  As a consumer, I wonder what hell has gotten into Hollywood?  Are the writers on strike?  It’s a real question. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy the movies, because every year … Continue reading Why Do We Love the Movies?

Another Trip Around the Sun | Happy Birthday to Me

The cat is out of the bag…Today is my birthday.  Even though New Years was twelve days ago, I’ve personally made another full trip around the sun.  I’m 43, but honestly, that’s a number that doesn’t mean very much to me.  I feel so good that I actually woke up this morning and forgot for … Continue reading Another Trip Around the Sun | Happy Birthday to Me

It’s the Little Things | Happy Thanksgiving 2015

It’s a quarter to three.  To be real honest, there isn’t anything special about today, and yet it’s probably the best day I’ve had in ages.  On the productivity scale of 1-10, ten being about as productive as one can get…I’m scoring myself about a three.  I’ve taken a shower, prepared bacon wrapped water chestnuts … Continue reading It’s the Little Things | Happy Thanksgiving 2015

“If I Had Only One Wish…”

Here is my thing about wishes.  I think they’re important.  I think it’s a way to help keep a little bit of positivity in your life…As long as you’re doing it right.  I’m not saying you can’t wish for what you want to wish for, but if you’re blowing out candles and pulling on chicken … Continue reading “If I Had Only One Wish…”

Ode to an Apple | A Guide to Making Applesauce

The tree stands lonely in the yard, though it didn’t start that way.  It was planted with another apple tree.  Two pluots were planted next to them.  Four trees in all.  Before long it was just one apple tree and the two others.  But then one pluot got sick and never recovered, and the other … Continue reading Ode to an Apple | A Guide to Making Applesauce

#HappyMothersDay

I’m incredibly proud of my kids.  I’m biased, sure, but I contend my kids are pretty damn awesome.  And not just because I’m biased.  Because I think it’s true.  Understand something, too, that I’ve always been pretty….strict, maybe…in my expectations. Here’s my thing… Years ago, I was sitting in a sterile, non-descript room with a … Continue reading #HappyMothersDay

YOU…Step Away from the Comfort Zone | Three Tips to Discovering a New Happiness

My life isn’t always a quest for balance.  There are times when, selfishly, I’m simply looking for happiness.  I want to laugh, be engaged with others around me, and most of all be released from the stresses that occur in daily life.  Maybe this is balance, but it feels different.  It feels selfish. My most … Continue reading YOU…Step Away from the Comfort Zone | Three Tips to Discovering a New Happiness
