Offended

Offended

Oh to be offended, when at last I thought my mind was all mended. Politicians come, politicians go. Oh to be offended, when at last I thought my mind was all mended. Conflicts arise out of differing points of view. While one heart simmers, the other stews. Oh to be offended, when at last I thought my mind was all […]

Spring! What a wonderful time of year.

Spring! What a wonderful time of year.

Spring has sprung: what a wonderful time of year. The cold bitter weather, the gray dreary skies, and the trees devoid of their foliage now begin to give way to the warming sun, the green foliage of grasses and bright petals of flowers all springing forth life.

Daylight Savings Time!

Daylight Savings Time!

We hear phrases such as “you never hear someone on their death bed wish they had spent more time working.” I often wondered how frequently we should seek […]

Enlightening

I read the book cover to cover from start to finish. Now, I find I jump around doing the exercises. It’s also made me more aware of songs that inspire me and I’ve been keeping a log. Even though I think I found my path years ago, this book reminds me of some of the things I still do, or […]

Valentine’s Day and Un-Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day, a day considered by a lot of people as a day made up by the greeting card, florist and chocolate industries. I am not sure of the origins of this “holiday,” and why it comes in February. Maybe it is because February tends to be somewhat of a gray and gloomy month and the bright red that is […]
