Another school shooting

Oh man, another school shooting! When are we going to be able to fix this?

I saw the news this morning, and of course, I started to cry. So I immediately go into my “I am a filter, not a sponge” mantra, and I try to convince myself that this is not my pain I . . . → Read More: Another school shooting

I am in charge of my own life

I am in charge of my own life. The choices are all mine to make. This is probably a good thing, although I must admit, there are times when I would like to turn over responsibility for my life to someone else. Sometimes there are just too many choices: too many food choices, too many . . . → Read More: I am in charge of my own life

Why is healthcare a for-profit thing?

Call me a liberal, or whatever else you want to call me, but I believe that people should not have to go broke because they or their children get sick. Healthcare is a basic need that we are all entitled to, not just the people who can afford to pay for it. Any one of . . . → Read More: Why is healthcare a for-profit thing?

Tell people now that you love them

It happened again…another friend passed away. I guess I half-expected it, as I knew she had cancer, but it was still a shock, and it is still sad.

I do consider myself lucky enough to at least have known about the cancer. She told me about that herself, although not right away. But hey – . . . → Read More: Tell people now that you love them

Sleep

I have not been sleeping well for the last couple nights, and I am realizing what a difference that makes to my sense of well-being. Nothing else has changed, I just haven’t had a solid night’s sleep.

I am looking around wildly to try to figure out what is causing this. We just got back . . . → Read More: Sleep

Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb – Which Way do I go?

I keep thinking I am going to write some fiction here, and then I get sidetracked again by life.

So today I am dealing with that age old problem – who do you believe & how do you decide what is right?

I have been trying to decide what kind of a diet to follow . . . → Read More: Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb – Which Way do I go?

Guns again

I am totally flabbergasted at the people who are willing to bully the kids who are marching for their lives right now. People (and I won’t name names, though you probably know who I am talking about) who are calling these kids names, claiming they are “crisis actors,” and saying they are being used by . . . → Read More: Guns again

Oops – I think I forgot about this blog

It has been over a month since I wrote here – wow, time goes fast.

Not to make excuses – more like giving an explanation, but I was pretty sick about a month ago, got better, and then totally spaced writing in this blog. Boy, that goes to show you that even when you are . . . → Read More: Oops – I think I forgot about this blog

Another school shooting

Another school shooting…my heart hurts so bad. I still cry when I see things about it on the news or on social media. And it makes me sad and angry at the same time.

I really do not want to be one of the people who becomes so hardened on one side or the other . . . → Read More: Another school shooting

Do something just for you

Do something just for you today. In fact, if you can manage it, do something just for you every day. It doesn’t have to be something grandiose and expensive. It can be as simple as turning off you phone, pouring a cup of tea, and sitting on your patio enjoying the sunset for 10 minutes. . . . → Read More: Do something just for you
