41 Laid to Rest

I am not a fan of either President Bush, but I am a fan of State funerals, weddings, inaugurations, and the like.  So of course, this morning (Wednesday, actually)  I was glued to the public funeral of President George H. W. Bush.  There was, of course, much pomp and circumstance during the procession and the... Continue Reading →

Unpacking The Box

Holidays are always a mixed bag of emotions for most of us.  This Thanksgiving was, in many ways, one of our family’s best.  All the kids were home, everyone got along, it was relaxing and totally fun.  But for me, something occurred that opened some very old wounds and left me feeling completely deflated. We... Continue Reading →

Finding the Magic

As you can see from my post feed, it's been quite awhile since I last posted here.  And while it sounds cliche, as I look back I am quite surprised at both how much I've changed and how much more myself I've become.  This journey I'm on has taken some unexpected twists and turns.  For...

An Amazing Woman

While in L.A. I spent some time with an old family friend, Doris Dotson. Doris is almost 80 years old, came to California from Birmingham, Alabama during the segregation of the 1950s. She worked as a cleaning lady for my grandmother, mother and aunts by day and as a janitor for L.A. City College by... Continue Reading →

L.A. Wrap-up

Well, the trip home went very well. I have to admit, it was a bit of a relief to see some traffic and people when I left Burbank airport and headed for my sister's. I also enjoyed the feeling of home seeing familiar storefronts, street signs, stoplights, etc. It was great to relax and know... Continue Reading →

Opening Up

Well, this week has been hectic so far. Tomorrow I'm off to my weekend with the girls in Arizona, then on to L.A. on Sunday for the week. I'm really looking forward to getting out of the cold and re-connecting with old friends. Unfortunately, I leave with a somewhat heavy heart. There are so many... Continue Reading →

Can I go home again?

Next week I'm going back to L.A. for a week-long visit. I have so many emotions. I feel nervous, excited, anxious, apprehensive, happy. I feel like I've changed so much in the last two years I'm not sure how I fit in there. My friends are still happy to see me, but I think my... Continue Reading →

Thank God It’s Friday!

So, in keeping with my previous post about honesty, I will say I'm honestly glad the week is nearly over. This past week has been a tough one for me. After the snow melted (and there is still some around), it was time to scurry around doing all the things that went undone while we... Continue Reading →

Honesty

I've been doing some research on various blogs and I realize the posts get the most comments are the ones where the writer is totally honest. It could be a post that is happy, sad, tragic, technical...But the feelings expressed are clearly honest. That's not to say I haven't been honest in my posts. I... Continue Reading →
