Rules, Respect, and Giving a Rip

There was a time when, with a carload of friends, I, as the driver, was caught in a stop-and-go situation in a parking ramp after a basketball game. “Look!” my friend Kathy said, pointing at another car. “They’re going the opposite direction! Let’s do that!” We should have, and I had a split second to decide. There was no law, no rule really, against … Read More Rules, Respect, and Giving a Rip

Consistently Changing

“Consistency requires you to be as ignorant today as you were a year ago.” ― Bernard Berenson Hmmm. I get his point, but there’s value in consistency, too. Depends on your consistent pattern. Do you routinely come home, watch the same TV shows and eat one of the same three frozen dinners? Or are you someone who can be counted to stay up-to-date with current … Read More Consistently Changing

Three Years Stronger

Annually, I re-post my very first blog post. Written on Christmas day 2014, it reflects the pain I was feeling then, as well as my resolve and hope.

Two plus two equals five. I learned of a practical example of this the other day. A co-worker was telling me … Read More Sum Greater than the Parts

Pages of the World Book

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” ― Augustine of Hippo Travel, or otherwise explore the world. It is easy to dismiss the decisions of others, particularly those of people in other cultures, if one has never traveled more than 100 miles from their place of birth. Brief trips to a large city for business travel are … Read More Pages of the World Book

moving forward

Originally posted on My World With Words:
A few weeks ago I found myself sitting alone in a crowd, anxiously searching for a familiar face. I was expecting a friend — until her text  told me not to. Now I was faced with sitting by myself at a celebratory service that would no doubt be an emotional, spiritual, uplifting experience (it was). I started…

One Step

When I find myself overwhelmed with all I face in the day ahead, I tend to stop, and do nothing. Nothing at all. There is too much, I can’t take it all in, so I do nothing. One step forward…I feed the cats. Another step or two…take a shower, brush my teeth, pull together the day’s clothing. Is everything clean? Yes. Does it still … Read More One Step
