Freedom from a Narrow Place

Tonight I will sit down with family and friends to participate in the tradition of the Passover Seder.  For the most part, the ritual is the same every year: retelling the story of the exodus from Egypt so future generations will remember it and keep retelling it.  But why bother?

I’m the Responsible One

I just read in someone else’s blog that it’s best to write when you have energy and are focused on your writing.  Well, today I am tired.  Not just “It’s been a hectic week,” tired, but the “I feel drugged and lethargic,” type of tired.

Garage Cleanout: Part One

I first decided to pick this blog back up at the urging of my husband, who said I had some “magic,” ability to connect with people.  I’m not sure if that’s true, but I do enjoy learning about others and sharing my own story, so here’s another chapter in mine.
