You’ve Got A Friend

One of the beauties of humanity is when you find people of like mindedness. Kindred Spirits. Someone who thinks similar to you and even understands what you just told them. For me that seems few and far between. But when I find one it is like a bowl full of gems and jewels and chocolate!Continue reading “You’ve Got A Friend”

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)”

Life’s Journey – Music and All

A movie or a TV show without background music can be rather dry. The music score sets the mood. My life’s journeys are usually accompanied with music. You can chuckle here. I would like to share with you a couple of songs that describe my journey the past seven years. Notice how different they areContinue reading “Life’s Journey – Music and All”

Sit Down For A Cuppa

Welcome New Year – 2016.  Welcome Friends. Come and sit with me and let me pour you a cup of coffee.  I didn’t make a double chocolate chai pie with real whipped cream for you today……perhaps next time. Today, I have lovely slices of homemade bread.  Warm.  With butter and/or some local Amish Blackberry Jam.Continue reading “Sit Down For A Cuppa”

Season of Hope

The times we are living in can be quite frightening.  The news stations alone are terrifying some days. Now that it’s the Christmas Season, or Holiday Season, a lot of people out there get melancholy or even deeply depressed.  Some long for the old days or dwell on hard times that have hit them duringContinue reading “Season of Hope”

A Single Story

How many times have I listened to one, single story of a people group or a country or a family or a person and that one, single story became everything that I know about them? I judged and believed and repeated that judgement all too often. All based on one, single story. I am ashamed.Continue reading “A Single Story”

Tea Time

It’s a gorgeous day in The Burg.  Not a cloud in the sky after two days of rain. The air is crisp and clear.  Nothing like a little walk around town and then a treat. I love treats.  I try to space them out so they can truly be a treat.  If done too oftenContinue reading “Tea Time”

Round and Round

I grew up in the north east of the USA.  We had many traffic circles.  When I became a driver I thought they were awesome.  Then slowly they began to disappear. We moved to the mid-west about seven years ago and lo and behold…… mini-traffic circles seemed to appear in the oddest of places. ByContinue reading “Round and Round”
