Could I Have a Do-Over?

Well, this New Year started off a wee bit off-kilter for me. I came down with a cough and a little congestion right before the clock struck twelve. Great timing. Since I filled myself with immune builders it could have been a lot worse. Instead, it dragged slowly on and I shared it with myContinue reading “Could I Have a Do-Over?”

The End of Another Year

I’m sitting here, typing, and listening to Surfing USA by the Beach Boys, in the middle of my country. You just can’t take the beach out of a Jersey Shore Girl. While contemplating the beginning of another year I must reflect on the last year. There. Done. Now on with the new. We had ourContinue reading “The End of Another Year”

A New Thing

As a child I was encouraged to be creative……sort of encouraged. My mom was a creative person, but her way of encouraging me was to have me watch John Gnagy, our version of Bob Ross. She bought pads and pencils and I was left to figure out if I was able to draw or not. ThatContinue reading “A New Thing”

Life is Beautiful

We moved to this lovely mid-west town, affectionately known as The Burg, two and a half years ago. Little did we know that we would fall in love with this town and it’s people. Sure, it has it’s frustrations like all relationships, but the people here and the countryside puts you right back into perspective. ShortlyContinue reading “Life is Beautiful”

Out With The Old…….

  Here we are already five days into the New Year. I decided to take down the Christmas tree and all the decorations that go with that wonderful time of the year. Sigh. I hesitated.

Another Cup Please…….

I just poured myself another cup of coffee. Join me as I sip and ponder, music playing in the background, thoughts circling and swirling in the lyrics with a sense of assurance and breathing in and out the colors of hope. We have lived in what we call The Burg for just a hair overContinue reading “Another Cup Please…….”

Honesty and Truth

I have always loved music. I have always been searching for the music that touches my heart in honesty and love in the deepest way. Music and words that speak truth and human emotions. That is one reason that I have always related to David of the bible. Particularly, I have always loved the rawContinue reading “Honesty and Truth”

And The Beat Goes On……….(my personal musical)

Fear. Sadly, I know it all too well. I have come a long way, but I am always trying to be aware of the unwelcome fear creeping in. I have learned that most of the fears I entertain are irrational, for me. Fear of worms, caterpillars and Dentist visits. Fear of rejection is a bit bigger in my mind. FearContinue reading “And The Beat Goes On……….(my personal musical)”
