Magicians

We live in a magical time and we’re capable of performing what would have seemed ‘magic’ even a hundred years ago. Want music? A push of a button or a simple request to our smart device and POOF! We have music! The same with movies – we make people, scenes, places appear at will, right […]

Transition

I’ve been thinking about life, and death a lot lately. I suppose it’s natural as we age, or perhaps it’s natural when we live with those with chronic, debilitating health issues. My entire life I’ve heard the oft parroted phrase, death is a part of life. For me it was always one of those “duh” […]

What we Cannot Change

I used to think there was little I couldn’t conquer with determination and hard work. Little I couldn’t change or make better in some way as long as I worked to improve myself, as long as I believed in myself. I was almost arrogant in my approach, laser like in my focus, my belief in […]

Rambling Morning Thoughts

I’ve always been a writer, at least inside my heart, for as long as I can remember. I wanted to be a journalist even before I knew there was a word, a title, for what I wanted to do / be when I grew up. I never doubted my vision or that it was the […]

Just as we are

Okay, I haven’t posted any quotes or thoughts for awhile so this one is going to be “off the cuff” . . . I have been thinking about attitude today, about trying to stay positive even in the face of set backs and losses. I tend to bury my stress under activity sometimes, I push […]

Turn Back Time

You know how you always see those articles titled “What I would say to my younger self?” Well, I’d like to think that I’d tell my younger self the same things I wish I could say to the young women of today. I wish I could let them know that there’s nothing they can’t do, […]

Change

Today as I made my commute home in rush hour traffic, I longed for the day when the road might be filled with autonomous vehicles. Oh, I know the doubts and fear that people have, but honestly, has there ever been a great change in technology when people haven’t been scared? Those that loved their […]

Bitters and Pickle Juice

Today has been tough digestively. I suffer from Gastroparesis, (GP) delayed gastric emptying. It’s an odd disease, seemingly going into remission for long stretches of time only to return with a vengeance. It means many of the foods I love are off-limits – salad, raw apples, bananas, steak, celery, (oh I miss celery), fresh green […]

At the End of the Day

I turned the BIG something “O” this year and just thinking about that number is still scary. It has taken months to accept; months of doldrums. Maybe not for the reasons you think, at least not primarily for those reasons. Sure, I wish my skin was firm and my back didn’t ache, but mostly I […]
