Every new year, I make a wish list for the new year, most times there's the usual stuff; world peace, a piece of pie, love, a ham sandwich on every other Tuesday.
So for this list, I will leave those out, as they'll be assumed to be every…Continue

Our cats have continued to ignore our pleas and wrote a holiday letter for 2014.
This year King Arthur Le Chat (the black one) wrote the letter. I should have been more suspicious when our computer use increased around mid-November. I thought I’d share his letter…Continue
I think I figured out Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
I was looking for a place to market my revolutionary Thanksgiving story. Spider looked like it might be a good choice, so I read the sample issue online.
It featured a frog version of Rudolph. A little frog with short legs can’t hop and dance like the regular frogs, so they leave her home when they rehearse their show.
But one day, the frogs get in trouble, and the short-legged ones can help…Continue
I woke up this particular Christmas morning with a heavy heart. I knew it would be the last time I would see my Dad for Christmas as he had been diagnosed with those dreaded words "I'm sorry. You are terminal" on Thanksgiving Day. How does a child, no matter how old, deal with the realization that this would be a Christmas that would be remembered for the rest of their life because of the finality of it?
I lay in bed thankful for the…Continue
Here I was – sounding off about how Michael Brown was unarmed and the only crime the police officer knew about was jaywalking – and then he shot him dead – emptied his gun into him.
A police officer explained to me that I was couch quarterbacking something I knew nothing about.
When a police officer, or anybody else is trained to use a gun for self-defense, the training includes…Continue

Below is my Writer Wednesday submission on the topic of SNOW!
The Calm After the Snow
There can be good in a mighty snowfall -- the day after that is.
The night before is different. When the wind shakes your house as if it intends to let itself in to destroy your humble little abode… that brings no happiness.
And when the snow is hard and heavy and pelts your windows in loud, jarring succession as if threatening your…Continue

Blue Cross wants Blood and Sweat.
Last August, Blue Cross sent me an email that I could have 15% off on my insurance for the year if I got a bunch of blood tests by the end of the month. I hate being popped. I hate discussing my results with a doctor who is out-of-date on the latest research and insists that high cholesterol is dangerous for women. The latest research shows that high cholesterol is protective for…Continue
Apparently, the Winter God has decided to give a big snow fest fall to parts of New York State.
Lake Effect apparently is the name of said God.
Apparently, that God needs to take a break from his job; he has done well. Parts of the state got one year of snowfall in one day.
I've been through some snow fall in my life. Nothing even close to seven feet of snow but when I was living in Indiana, one year, we received 3 feet of…Continue

I attended a Mindfulness Workshop at which the leaders read some of their favorite poems. Two lines have stuck with me:
For us to know peace, is it necessary that there be no war anywhere in the world?…

Serenading the beasts
I saw a quote from the new book, “The afterlife of Billy Fingers” which said, “Imagine yourself with no limitations only potential”. I thought about this and I think there have been only a handful of people who we can say accomplished this. Imagine if everyone was able to live that way. Imagine if we all had no limitations, only potential..I can't decide if it would be a good thing or bad thing. Imagine if you will that everything that…Continue
