Some things I've written that I'm most proud of have been for honoring others... a few wedding toasts, thank you letters, a eulogy and a rap for my dad's 60th birthday. There's something about putting into words how much someone means to you or what their life at that moment represents, that is so special.… Continue reading Ode to you!
We made it! Two weeks in and I feel like I'm just now catching up...The new year has started, and along with it the sense of optimism that washes over the world.

A few days ago, my colleague shared that his kids came home from college for Thanksgiving weekend and he was thankful that everyone is under one roof again. He said "All is right in the world." I love that statement, because when you miss your family, that is exactly how it feels to have everyone… Continue reading All is right in my world
As annoying as I find the black & white photo challenge currently on Facebook , I can also appreciate it because it prompts people to share photos, things from everyday life. Real life. There's all this discussion lately about real life vs. "Facebook life"; what's shared, the highlight reel or even orchestrating moments to appear… Continue reading Capture your joy!
#Worldkindness Day Did you hear? It's World Kindness Day. As a fan of kindness, I guess it's good that there is an International Observance of it.
