Making Space for Audacity

May 3, 2019

This is my weekly 24-hour exercise in believing in hope and possibility. A lot of the time I have to fake it, but it’s worth a try – especially when you’re in the midst of a difficult journey. I hope you’ll join me.

Tempus Fugit

May 2, 2019

My dog Rose turned 14 in March and our time together is flying by. I rescued her when she was 8 weeks old. That feels like yesterday. I only wish I could slow it down.

Urban Chill

April 30, 2019

I love big city life, but the density tries one’s patience. My better angel aims not to be reactive. I can’t say that I often succeed. Perhaps tomorrow.

This painting by Dwayne Butcher made me smile. And I got to thinking how I’d fill in the blank. I’d marry any man named….  (Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese?)

Earth Day

April 22, 2019

April 22, 1970 was the first Earth Day. 22 million people took to the streets to demonstrate for a cleaner environment. Within months, Richard Nixon proposed the creation of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Now, almost 50 years later, the crisis is more urgent than ever. What’s it going to take to make a difference?
