Will the year 2022 be any better?
As 2021 winds to a close, I reflect on the good as well as the bad this year has brought. I wonder whether the year 2022 will be any better for me and for the world? Can we get this pandemic under control or will illness and death continue? How will the people and the... Read more »

Gone walking again

Gone walking again
I decided to start walking every day again. In 2020, I walked 22 minutes every day, for a total of 150 minutes weekly. In 2021, I decided to try 30 minutes every day. It was a little more challenging to find 30 minutes to do it versus just 22. I know that is only 8... Read more »

What have you done recently?

What have you done recently?
There are so many things I had not done in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. It was hard to make myself start doing things again after so much time isolated and at home. Since I was fully vaccinated in April, I started going out to eat and to doctor appointments. There were still... Read more »

Do you give self-love?

Do you give self-love?
I attended a Zoom workshop awhile back where we were asked to list 10 ways that we show others that we love them and then 10 ways that we show love to ourselves.

Do you think in pictures or in words?
Words or pictures, how does a person think? Does it depend on the age of a person or the stage of development the person is in? How about the situation the person is in, or a combination of those? As an adult, whether I think in pictures or in words depends on the situation. As a writer,... Read more »

Do you follow your intuition or are you Living Red?

Do you follow your intuition or are you Living Red?
I wrote this book over the last few years, and published it in November 2020. There are so many thoughts and feelings in it that resonate with the world I am living in today with the impact of the pandemic and the systemic racism. I am including the description and a short excerpt. It is... Read more »

Is binge-watching bad?

Is binge-watching bad?
Although I had so many things that I needed to accomplish this weekend, I spent it watching Netflix, mostly binge-watching season one of Ginny and Georgia. Although no one seems to call it binge-reading, I do this with books also. Other than the obvious reason to be entertained by a good story, why else do I... Read more »

Dreams, goals, and wishes

Dreams, goals, and wishes
Dreams, goals, and wishes… I think that the pandemic has impacted my desire to live life to the fullest. I decided years ago that I would live a regret-free life, so the older I get, the more I strive to make my dreams come true. I posed this question on Facebook, “If you could accomplish... Read more »
