This week’s blog is about feelings of inadequacy. I am not perfect, I am just human like everybody else. Sometimes I have days when things are not going so well. I just can’t put my finger on what’s wrong. I don’t know if I don’t feel good physically or if my mood is bad. Read More
I just got back from New York! I attended my cousin Bobbie’s ordination. Yes, she became an ordained minister! “I love her, everyone who meets her loves her.” Read More
Tomorrow is the first day of my challenge. My question is, “How can I stay motivated to stick with this challenge?” Whenever you start a new thing – whether it’s a new job, a new marriage, a new baby, or a new vacation; there’s always the question of how hard will the new task be. You know, what will it take for me to be successful each day? Read More
So I guess I’ll list a few things I’m sticking to this summer. This begins June 1. I got this idea after reading The Year of Less by Cait Flanders. Read More
Well, I just got back from my 45th college reunion at Hampton (Institute) University. It was, in a word – amazing! It was great seeing everyone, giving each other hugs and trying to remember faces as we looked down at the lanyard on their neck to glimpse their freshman face & remember who this is.

Sometimes we find appreciation and inspiration together. This is Teacher Appreciation Week! And boy, do I need some appreciation as we finish this last week of finals! Read More
I’m getting ready to change my closet over. I’m trying to remember to use only my right arm to haul stuff. (Yes, I’m wearing my sleeve on the left arm and now that that’s settled, let’s move on.) It has been winter for so long I haven’t even thought about changing it over until this week. It’s still kind of cool. We’re in the last three weeks of school. During this Spring semester, I haven’t pulled out the summer things yet, because it’s been cool or raining and cloudy. Read More
I’ve always admired people who were artists. I really wanted to draw (more than stick people) or paint or sculpt. You know, be creative! How does that happen? Read More
It’s such a push-pull or approach-avoidance when you’re not feeling well and finally resign yourself to taking a self-care day. I am usually moving so fast that I don’t take the time to rest. Today, however I need to stop and fight off this approaching cold.
This morning, after staying in bed for a couple of more hours I feel like I need to get up and do some work. But the pull is I am weak and tired. Too tired to perhaps get out but that is just the tiredness talking, right.
Being able to stand up and sit down without using my hands is challenging for me. I used to be able to do that. Yeah, this is one task I’m trying to master, again. I mean, when did my ability to do this disappear and what am I doing about it? Read More
