Can Honest Friendship Save the World?

Recently my best friend recommended a podcast to me called, “Call Your Girlfriend.”  It is hosted by two millennial women who are close friends and live on opposite sides of the country.  Their topics are engaging and hip, very conversational and their chemistry is fun.  I enjoy listening from the vantage point of someone old...

What to do When Time Hands You a Windfall

Have you ever had a windfall of time blow into your life? I’m talking about time you thought was planned out and accounted for, but then something intervenes that scuttles those plans?  That happened to me and my husband last week.  We had a planned short weekend trip to see some family.  Our bags were...

Warning: Neuroses Ahead

Aging is a tricky thing.  Not only does it mess with the body, it also messes with the mind.  And often those two things are at cross-purposes.  I realize I’m not the first person to come up with this notion, but it is happening to me, for the first time.

I guess I should wait and do this another time... Continue Reading →

This Time It’s Personal

This week I’ve decided to get personal.  I’m referring to a situation with which I’ve been dealing in regards to a health issue.  Thankfully it’s not life threatening but still requires some special attention.  And, as I’ll explain, it’s been frustrating, overwhelming and a bit scary at times. For most of my life I’ve suffered... Continue Reading →

Sleep Struggles

Sleep.  That one word is so loaded.  Not getting enough.  Getting too much.  When to do it.  Where.  On what.  With whom? Sleep, for me, is elusive most nights.  I fall asleep pretty well, usually with some old TV sitcom on in the background (I am trying to turn it off before I actually fall... Continue Reading →
