Bright Hopes for Tomorrow

Guys, no joke, 2020 was maaad. It ran like a crazy train till the very end, actually! All of us were really thankful to have lived to see the end and yet to have maintained our sanity. I recall feeling grateful to see the old year pass. Like you, I learned a lot in 2020…Read more Bright Hopes for Tomorrow

Tis the season

As I start to write this, I find myself humming the song: “’tis the season…” but I find that I don’t want to simply complete it the usual way: “to be jolly”. I can think of other ways to end the phrase, but I’m first curious as to how you would. As we complete what…Read more Tis the season

Humbling times

What a year, right? A TON has happened, and I cannot actually believe we’re in the last quarter of the year already. Not only did the year literally fly by, but it was loaded with …life.

On the flip side

So, grownfolks, I live in one of the states within America that has begun opening up in phases and boy, what a difference it has made! There have been many losses we have all incurred in this period, but in thinking, I realized one thing: I like some of the outcomes of this pandemic. I…Read more On the flip side

Still sleeping?

One man awake, Awakens another. The second awakens His next door brother. The three awake can rouse a town By turning the whole place Upside down The many awake Can cause such a fuss It finally awakens the rest of us. One man up, With dawn in his eyes Surely then Multiplies. ~ Lawrence Tribble…Read more Still sleeping?

Who are YOU becoming?

Day whatever of being locked in with this coronavirus pandemic. I’m sure that you, like many others, have gone through various emotional/psychological stages of being. Maybe you’ve finally accepted the state of things, or are still wrestling with feelings of being stuck. All very real experiences. All I’ve gone through or sometimes still am. I’ve…Read more Who are YOU becoming?

Notes from a Crisis

To say that life has changed in the last two weeks would be an understatement. A more close-to-reality statement would be that all of life hit a major pause button. It’s like when you watch a scene on TV with a speed setting that is fast-forwarding it all and then you suddenly have the scene…Read more Notes from a Crisis
