The Attack on Our Democracy

I'm still upset, furious, bewildered, sad, anxious, and scared after I watched the mob descend on our Capitol so violently in an attempt to rip apart the one thing that makes our country great - our democracy.  One of the angry supporters actually murdered a police officer who was protecting the Capitol. The officer was a veteran too.  He was...

Yes to 2021!

Here's all that I'm doing this year, and I can't wait. - Spending as many days as I can with my dear, dear husband and son. So looking forward to taking a road trip or two (I want to see Glacier National Park and Yellowstone again). Such a gift that these guys are in my life. - Laughing over pizza with my sister. So glad she lives so...

Memories make me warm

It hits me like flashes: My two sons when they were back in elementary school, walking towards me after the dismissal bell, holding hands. Then, massive mental rewind to when I was their age. My own dad, sipping whiskey at the dinner table, sharing our early days as a family when he only had a few bucks to pick up a soon-to-be-trashed Christmas...

Christmas Already?

Can’t believe it’s in a few days! Among the things I’ve done to simplify my life now is a) not mailing out cards, except to my mom and b) only putting up a wreath from Home Depot. I don’t even go out of my way to listen to carols anymore, but I’ll sing them during online church. The only daily...

Skype Video Bummer

On Zoom, you can “enhance” your onscreen appearance. I tried that and appreciate the tasteful ultra-subtle airbrushing you get. Like putting a thin dab of Vaseline on a “normal” camera lens, or standing in the right intensity of sunlight when you do a selfie. But no such luck with Skype. The other day, I tried Skyping an overseas friend. I...

Having everything yet nothing

I've been following a few stories about former Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, who recently died in a house fire in Connecticut. Just 46 years old. I didn't know he was struggling with drug addition and with his mental health. That he was found alone in a locked shed full of candles. All that Hsieh did and had, but he was yearning and...

Its All Good

Just laying here thinking that...........I think I like it better knowing when I'm going to die rather than not knowing. If we ever get to the point where medical science can pinpoint within 1 year of when you're going to pass, I would take them up on the offer. I would want to know. We all know we're going, the kicker...

The Last Song

Did you ever get the feeling that there was unfinished business you had to take care of? Business you never even thought about before? Well, I had a dream last night. I didn’t recognize where I was, but I remember a sense of peace. The last thing I remember before I woke up was that I was getting ready to sing...

Speak Your Mind

I don't know if this is a regret or not, but I remember many times in my life when I should have spoken my mind more than I did. So many times I would “beat around the bush” when telling somebody something. Like telling someone how you feel about them but being coy or elusive about it. Like it's a...

Live Like You Were Dying?

I just realized something I think is important. That old saying “Live like you were dying” seems to be taken for granted. At the very least, it is taken out of context. Like “Have fun every day” or something like that. When we are faced with knowing we are dying from a medically diagnosed illness, things like humility and self-awareness...

Travel Well

Just a thought I had, dear family.   They say that the rear-view mirror of a car is small for a reason. That the windshield of a car is so large for a reason. Those reasons being, that you should focus more on what's ahead of you rather than looking back. When we reach a certain point in our lives though, we...

Dueling Protests Hysteria

I wish both sides would stop freaking out that their legal ballots will be thrown out or that illegal votes are being counted right now -- all in hopes of swaying an election and subverting our democracy.  It's simply nonsense.  I'm a veteran of the United States Army.  I've been stationed in South Korea, Texas, South Carolina, and Iraq during...
