Hillary Clinton certainly knows about broken dreams. The dream of being the first woman president, one I suspect she held throughout her life, has been shattered after a brutal campaign.
And then there are all of those women and girls who dreamed of a woman president and role model. Those dreams aren’t gone for good as some day it will be realized, just not this year. Hillary has helped to pave the way for a future generation, just as…Continue
I have many followers on Facebook; many I don’t know personally. Many who have followed me simply because I followed them. But I do try to connect with as many as I can. I read their posts and comment on what touches me. Today, one such post reached in and gripped my heart.
I read about a woman whose life has been diminished because of health issues. She is no longer able to lead the life she once had and is now mostly in a wheelchair. Because of this, she…Continue

I’ve always been a bit of a racer. It’s more than not liking to wait. I tend to rush. I’m a mission-driven, most-efficient-finding, road-plowing kind of gal. Dreams inspire me. Vision catapults me. Determination sustains me. I hit the ground running, heading straight for that triumphant finish line.
But, sometimes, instead of gaining ground, I merely spin my wheels trying.
Have you seen the movie Cars? I’m not sure I’ve ever felt more connected to a Disney…Continue

Sometimes, in the dark hours, when the birds in the parking garage are silent, and all I can hear is the shushing of the tires of the homebound late shift workers, I think about you.
I try to remember the good times, the times in Technicolor, filled with heart and soul so deep all I could see was rich, brown velvet.
In a box,
that velvet climbed up the walls, caressed the…Continue

I receive dozens of emails a day. Some is spam but most is something I need to actually look at and respond to. On occasion I get emails from people who have written blogs or such about how to write this or that. For instance: I got one today about writing death scenes in a book. It is a short article but I think it brings up really good points. You can find that here:…Continue

It’s impossible to not notice all the signs, billboards and ads for the upcoming show featuring Playboy Bunnies. This has caused me a great deal of stress, not just because it seems the entire world is going backwards, but because it dredges up memories I really would rather forget.
Walking to my local village yesterday, there it was, the shiny bus ad, with scantily clad girls wearing onesies, bunny ears and poofy rear-end tales, smiling like it was fun being pawed by…

There's a lot of things I'd rather feel than how it is when my boyfriend calls up from the other line with "this" and "that" and doubts and why he's got second thoughts and why he's leaning towards other girls, the other way, or why he's basically thinking I'm a complainer, a nag in general and why I'm beginning to be a pain. So "I'd rather..." I've thought this up more than once today. I'd rather be in a handful of places than on my my kitchen table listening on the other line in my…Continue
