2017-03-07 For My Birthday Girl
Such a long full couple of days. So much I want to say. Too much. I’m walking the treadmill at the gym right now and my mind is racing and my heart is swollen with feelings. I’m trying to walk off the meal I had for dinner because I ate entirely too much. We were…
2017-03-03 Saint Louis – Day 1
My last blog post was about the first half of my first day in Saint Louis yesterday but there is, of course, more to the story. Not only did I have a fantastic Cheeseburger but I also had fun the rest of the day just letting whatever happens happen… Late afternoon it was too cold…
2017-02-25 Rose Buddies Anyone?
I’m just hanging out tonight for a little bit with my sister’s dog, Odin. Her husband is out of town on a ski trip with his family and she couldn’t go because of work but that left the puppy home alone for too long. I’m happy to come take care of this pup because he’s…

2017-02-05 Concrete Goals
This weekend I walked over 40,000 steps (according to my FitBit) and a great deal of that was outside in the sunshine. It is definitely a winter where the weather is something I can’t complain about. Yesterday I walked the loop around a lake and saw deer, geese, and an Eagle! Quite magnificent. Also contributing…
2017-02-03 On Grief
Life is complicated, you know, and human beings are fascinating and beautiful and strange. The body is remarkable and unusual and the mind is mysterious and wonderful. This seems like the perfect combination for a extraordinary existence yet, all the connections and unknowns and conflicts can cause chaos. We’re thinking all the time. It’s both a blessing and…
