Seeking Silver Linings

It seems like 2020 was the year of cancellations, bad news, and ugly media. Now, in 2021, I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't necessarily more of the same. I mean, after all, there's an "antidote" circulating now, right? Forgive me if I sound naiive. I'm not. But with the arrival of... Continue Reading →

I’m not sure about this book.

I found this book the other day on the shelves of the local bookstore. I'm not too sure about the book's author and where the book originated -- was I in the humor section? It almost seemed like satire. Definitely ironic. But it was in the Health and Wellness section of the bookstore. After I... Continue Reading →

Immunity

“Those who know how close the connection is between the state of mind of a man - his courage and hope, or lack of them - and the state of immunity of his body will understand that the sudden loss of hope and courage can have a deadly effect.”― Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

Prayer in the Park

Yesterday my spouse and I were taking a morning walk in our neighborhood. We have the luxury of a fairly long "greenbelt" of parkway through the area, with lots of trees and grass. It's the best thing about the neighborhood, really. It has been a saving grace for when most things have been closed due... Continue Reading →

I'm not usually the type of person to give myself permission to rest. I've been feirly busy since I was a teen in high school with a... Continue Reading →

Are you superstitious?

It’s Friday the 13th, again, in 2020, with crows. Any film buff will tell you that Friday the 13th is not an auspicious day for college students—or women in general. There’s a whole load of horror films on the topic. On the other hand, ask any Wiccan and they might say Friday the 13th is... Continue Reading →

Gratitude 2020 – Day 4

It's Monday in the Valley and there's freeze warning until 9 AM. My cell phone tells me it's 34 degrees outside. This wouldn't be a big deal except that a week or so ago we were in the 80s. I guess California winter has arrived. Which brings me to my #gratitude for the morning. #Thankful... Continue Reading →
