Politicians: Please stop calling me
I’m on the Do Not Call Registry. I shouldn’t be getting unsolicited calls, but I do. Apparently political parties are exempt. Today I received fourteen. All from politicians. FOURTEEN. Can I ask you something — do they ever work? Do any of you change your mind regarding a politician, political party or issue because of... Read more »

Modern Day MS: A new resource is created
My friend and fellow writer Beth Prystowsky announced she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) two years ago. These past two years were spent discovering a whole new world and unfortunately no matter how hard she searched, she couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for — she wanted more for and from this community...

I have friends. Well at least one.

I have friends. Well at least one.
I was given one hour to write about something I learned since I woke up this morning. When I moved to my current house almost 10 years ago, I came in a little guarded. I was leaving an incredible group of friends that I trusted deeply. I found it so hard to recreate that bond.... Read more »
