A Good Time Ahead

There’s a lot happening this weekend. It’s been a year (is that all?) with our current president. I’m with the majority of Americans, embarrassed by and weary of him. The news is full of analysis of his time in office, and it’s a little overwhelming. Enough said on my part.

Words in the Wind

Finding Home

The other day I was getting my hair cut, and I commented on the casual Friday attire of the stylists. In the past, they always wore black, and the color was more important than style. There’s a new owner now, and she believes given the nature of the salon — creating an image — the individuals responsible for the changes for their clients should … Read More Finding Home
