I don’t know why I agreed to this. I could be sitting at home on my couch, watching the ball drop. That would have been so much better. I wouldn’t have to try to keep my eyes open all night. But, instead, here I am. 2014—two hours away. Just another year.
I jab my thumb into the elevator button, watching the numbers ascend until the thirteenth floor approaches. Thirteenth floor? I don’t know why the number didn’t dawn on me before, but thinking about it now, buildings don’t have a…Continue

It is rare you find a book that is truly unbiased, based on historical research, compelling and reads like a fiction novel. Acclaimed author, journalist, documentarian, Sandy Tolan accomplishes this feat with the engaging novel, The Lemon Tree: An Arab, A Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East which I just finished reading. If I was a High School English or history teacher this would be on the top of my required reading list! …Continue

After attending a Holiday Open House at GG’s Framed Art and Gifts in Statesville, North Carolina this past weekend, and with a chance of snow in the forecast I have begun to get the holiday jitters. After all it is only six weeks until Christmas.
Every year when I start thinking about all there is to do in such a short time my heart starts racing and my chest feels tight. Why, oh why do I let the “to do” list steal my Christmas joy?
My “to do” list consists of…Continue

As a first time author, I had no idea how much work came after the actual writing of my book. Who knew that several years (like my weight, I'm embarrassed to fess up to the exact number) of writing really wouldn't be the hardest part?
When I start scouring the internet for new ideas or read the advice of fellow writers or professional publicists, my mind reels from everything there is to do to get my book into the hands of readers. What happened to just getting my…Continue

Do you remember this scene from the movie, Pretty Women:
Vivian: “People put you down enough, you start to believe it.”
Edward: “I think you are a very bright, very special woman.”
Vivian: “The bad stuff is easier to believe. You ever notice that?”
Good question. I bet, if I asked, you could immediately recall dozens of insults, jabs, & names spoken over you throughout the years. You know…Continue

My Boomer Friends
A huge 747 aircraft is turning around rolling towards the take-off pad, and the head stewardess picks up the microphone and broadcasts to all on board the emergency tips that have been put in place for your safety. First, and foremost she says, “in case of an emergency where the overhead masks will be released, put your mask on first.” Why? If you don’t save yourself first, then you won’t be able to save anyone else.
This is especially true in those…
