How to Fly with a Bird

This is one of the most wonderful videos I’ve seen in a long, long time.  Thanks to my friend, Sam, in Juneau Alaska, for sending it to me.  It made my heart sing.  I hope you all enjoy it just as much.  Namaste’     Advertisements

Happy Easter

Just a quick note to wish all of my readers a warm, joyful and peaceful Easter.  Pray for the miracle of peace around the world.  (We all know it’s not about the bunnies, colored eggs and candy). Frankly, I never understood how anyone could buy into the whole Easter Bunny thing.  Any kid with half…

Sometimes I Need a Gentle Reminder

Mother Teresa’s Anyway Poem People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat…

It Comes Down to This?

The past few days seem like such a blur, with moving Mom and the details and coordination work that it entails.  Such a stressful time for all of us.  Hubby was so good yesterday to move all the boxes from her old apartment to the new one.  That paved the way for the movers this…

The Reluctant Blogger

Yep, that’s me!  (No, not really).  By now you all know I’m not reluctant about blogging.  I’ve just been really busy getting Mom prepared to move to a smaller place.  She will be 90 next week so it’s a little hard for her to comprehend that she needs to down-size now that Bud has passed….

Just Chillin’

So now that I know how to post from my phone and have these fun apps, (this one is Paper Camera) taking pics with my phone is really easy. So here’s Daisy & Foxy chillin’ with me and hubby. Namaste’


Just a short post today to express my thanks to all of you who made such loving comments. Your thoughts and positive energy will contribute immensely to the days ahead. The tasks begin of dealing with the logistics of moving Mom to a smaller place, and of course the paperwork involved when someone passes. God,…

An Ending and a Beginning

As many of you know, my stepdad, Bud, has been very ill and was in a nursing facility for quite some time.  A week ago yesterday we managed to get him out of there with the help of hospice.  The same hospice that took care of my brother when he passed a few years ago….


This is how Daisy lays when she wants comfort on her belly. Lots of thoughts and emotions going on for me today. Maybe I should take a lesson from Daisy and just take comfort in the smallest o f things. Yep; good plan.Namaste’


Wouldn’t you know it?  I didn’t have my camera with me yesterday (highly unusual) and hubby wanted to stop at the nursery.  Well, of course there were some spectacular flowers so I started snapping away with my phone’s camera.  At least I had that, eh?  Here’s a few from yesterday’s adventure.  Click on each one…


No photo today, just a story of an amazing woman … a street photographer who led a mysterious life.  Take a look: Namaste’

And Then It is Winter

I received an email from a very dear friend of mine … a life-long friend actually.  One that I’ve known and loved for 50 years.  How many of us can be so lucky as to have a friend for that long?  I consider myself very blessed indeed.  Anyway, here’s the email – republished for you…
