I'm tackling another letter..."R"

Not really sure what I am going to write about. For sure it's not going to be about deleting an entire blog posting because I have never done that. Weird concept even? I mean why write it and then post it if only to delete it? Odd. Oddly odd.So the alphabet blog is up to the letter "R" and I can do something with that..... I think I am going to choose the word "remember"....more

I have deleted comments people have made when I think their intention may be misconstrued. I am a loving editor....more

Do Small Things

When I was in university, I wanted to carry out something great, heroic even. Like all young people, I wanted to make a difference in the world. After spending 18 years pregnant and/or nursing, I have done nothing noteworthy. Yet I intuitively understand that by mothering, by doing simple things, I have changed the world....more

Oh "P".

I apologize. I just can't write about internet scandal. I have zero interest in getting all worked up over someone's post that caused controversy. If I wrote about the letter "O" yesterday, then guess what? Today is all about the letter "P".What should my word be?...more

The Power of Symbols

Analogies are still the most effective way to reach the human heart because  people learn deep, spiritual truths intuitively. That's why symbols and word pictures speak right to our core and move us , change us....more
