Ready

Last week I received a Facebook message from an old friend. Her youngest son had been diagnosed with autism, and our mutual friends suggested she contact me for guidance and support. That happens a lot. And I’m happy to respond and help when I can. After we set details and coffee, I accepted her friend request and went to her…

Unplugged

Ah, life. Some days I get everything right. Yoga at 5 a.m. Dinner in the crockpot at 6 a.m. Poached eggs and berries for breakfast. 5 minutes early to my first meeting at 7:30 a.m. School pickup on time, basketball practice at 5:30 p.m., dinner at the table with music playing and happy kids with bluebirds swirling around our heads……

What love means

This past weekend was wonderful. But it went by so quickly, it was almost a blur. Isn’t that always the way when we are with the ones we love?

And perhaps, if I’m lucky, it will also benefit a few to read.   ******************** I spent way too much of my life morphing. Bending. Arching. Twisting Changing.…

The Knit

I have a bit of a problem. I see things all the time that I love and I think, hmmmmm…I can make that. Furniture in stores, jewelry in magazines, even pillows and wall hangings on TV. As a matter of fact, back in 2005 when How I Met Your Mother was released, there was an episode or two that Marshall…
