New year. New word. For those just joining the audience, for the last three years I’ve eschewed resolutions. Instead, I go for the minimal acknowledgement that it’s time to look ahead at where I want to be this time next year. So…I choose but I try to choose decisively. Only one word is required to … More Living Through The Epiphanies
In case you’re wondering about the point of all this, I got this idea from a vendor I work with. He does a blog every Friday with five short shorts about things on his mind every week. I haven’t been blogging in awhile so why not see where this might go. I’m only writing three … More Three TouchPoint Saturday
My late husband didn’t like cars so even though we traveled extensively, we never drove anywhere.

For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death … More Following Zora’s lead
I spent this past Christmas in California with my daughter who just moved there. I’ve always loved the winter season but it’s unusually refreshing to me the few times I’ve spent the holiday season in a warm climate. Walking beneath billowy palm trees while having the warmth of the sun follow me around for a … More New Year. New Lily?
December is not for lightweights. I don’t think it matters where you live or what kind of weather you’re in for either.
