Anti-Bucket List

Bucket lists. They make people so filled with hope for what they want to do in the future, but what about the things we don’t want to do in the future? The people we hope not to become? Aren’t those things important too? A few months ago, my friends and I started...

A WOMAN FOR ALL SEASONS

As I viewed the above photo of a Bride, her Groom and his best men, I had a very provoking thought for a blog. A Woman is like the four seasons! The men, here, can represent the seasons. And, June, isn’t it a huge marriage announcer? As the seasons change, so do...

Memorial Day And The Official Start of Summer

This year, like many others, I am awaiting Memorial Day and the official start of Summer with the unvarnished enthusiasm of a child–new beach towels, chairs dusted off in the garage, all for the Saturday that would be the portal for 16 weeks or so at the beach....

Vaxxed, Waxed, and Maxed out

For the last 15 months, we have all be yearning for a time when things would return to normal. A time when we could go back to being with our friends instead of building forts out of cases of Red Bull alone. Before you ask, yes, that is 20 cases of the energy drink...
