Want to reflect on your 2018?

Want to reflect on your 2018?
I attended an intuitive reading this weekend and binge-watched The Good Place. It seems lately that every show, book or event I attend have me reflecting on my life. Maybe it is also the age that I am, but I can’t escape the questions and the self-reflection. I have spoke about and even written many... Read more »

“Dan and I went on a date at the carnival”

“Dan and I went on a date at the carnival”
The following chapter came from an actual experience of a first date I went on when I was younger. I love to use real life experiences that I have had or that I heard about, but then add a big dose of imagination to change details and to make it meaningful. I think often those... Read more »

Do we all have secrets and stories that we keep to ourselves? Does not telling a secret mean it is not true? Not telling absolutely does not mean that it did not happen,... Read more »

Movie (DVD) Review: RBG

Movie (DVD) Review: RBG
I have never had much interest in politics or the legal profession even though I did almost apply to law school after college to champion for the oppressed.

“My search for something different brought me here tonight”
I will always love the first two books that I wrote. They definitely hold a special place in my heart, but my newest book was a gift.

Do you ever wonder about people’s tattoos?
I don’t have any tattoos myself, but I have a few friends and some family members that do. Because I never had a desire to get one, I find it very interesting to understand why someone would get a tattoo and how they pick the ones that they have. I decided to interview my niece,... Read more »

Do you have a mantra?

Do you have a mantra?
I believe that in life there are lessons to learn and situations to encounter, but I still control my path and my fate. I can decide how to respond to the situations by either learning from them or feeling defeated. There have been times in my life when I wallowed in self-pity and refused to learn from... Read more »
