One of my dearest friends is getting married this month. Zenobia and I met years ago when we worked together, and I was instantly drawn to this beautiful, tall, dark-skinned woman who laughed more than anyone I’d ever met and always wore three inch heels even though she is already six feet tall. We were […]

I always know that March has arrived by the many articles about spring cleaning and organizing that begin to pop up on my favorite blogs. Cleaning and getting rid of the clutter is important to our overall well being, according to one writer, and actually improves your life in a myriad of ways. Armed with […]

During the Christmas season, I ate a lot of chocolate – so much, that I was almost tired of it. Like most of you, January brought a renewed resolve to eat healthy foods, which is something I mostly do anyway. But now it’s February. And we all know February opens the chocolate season that runs […]

I look forward to January and the “blank slate” feel of a new year. And, while I don’t usually make resolutions, I do feel a renewed sense of purpose and excitement thinking about the possibilities that lie ahead. As a woman planted firmly in middle age, I’m not sure if aging has made me wiser, […]

I stopped watching the news on a regular basis years ago, and it has made my life immeasurably better. I no longer start my morning with sound bites of tragedy and pain; instead, I ease into the day quietly with a solo run on the beach and mediation. Still, it’s impossible to miss the big […]

The duo can also be found online where they have a blog and are on Facebook and […]

Since my children were small, a few days of my year, dotted throughout the seasons, are always spent with my large, extended family. Many of them I only see at these gatherings, even though we keep in touch, but those crowded, loud days are always among the highlights of my year. Over gallons of coffee […]

We’ve all heard and read about the power of positive thinking and how powerful our thoughts and imagination are in creating our lives. I read a fascinating book this month about just that subject, and I wanted to share it with all of you as Sasee focuses on “Imagination” this month. The book, E-Squared: Nine […]

It’s meet the (fur) family month! Pictured with me are Jacky, Annie, Dorothy and Lizzy. Hermione, pictured separately, was the Queen of the Pack and crossed the rainbow bridge in May, after 15 short years of sharing her unconditional love and innate wisdom with everyone she met. They are all older now, content to lie […]

We all know that travel opens us up to new experiences and ways of thinking. But I believe some of the most significant journeys take place on the inside, bringing insights and awareness that, for me at least, make navigating life a little easier and more satisfying. The parenthood journey is one of ongoing ups […]
