Secret to Happiness

What is the secret of happiness? Is it really a secret that is hidden and kept from us or do we hide from it feeling unworthy? Truthfully, I believe the latter to be true. Very few individuals are truly happy, having found a peace that eludes the mass majority of humans.  WE tend to live…

Spring… a rebirth of the soul

Spring time in northern Michigan….time to purge all the pent up dust from the long winter, clean out the closets, and get to work on cleaning up the yard.  Seeing children out playing and riding bikes, more folks enjoying walks along our shorelines and streets enjoying an ice cream in the midday sun.  Take a…

Think about it…

I have flown a hundred times in my short lifetime amd it still amazes  me that we can take a large, bulky, metal object filled with fragile lives, lift it into the atmosphere and transport the vessel thousand of miles using currents of wind. How amazing we were created! We sent people to the moon,…

Everyday you make history

We go through each day, buying coffee from the local barista, lunch at a favorite restaurant, and interact with the cashier at the supermarket grabbing those last minute dinner needs. Even if this isn’t exactly you, you DO interact with people during your day. Maybe at your office, checkout line, or while serving a subpoena….

Roadtrip

There comes a time in everyone’s life when the monotony of merely surviving day to day becomes overwhelming, causing a low state of mind and even inviting illness. ☺ Insert roadtrip.  Whether with a friend,partner in life or child(ren)… just do it.  Don’t over analyze it,  do not count your dollars or things you have…

There’s an elephant in the room…

Most of us have heard the term, ‘There’s an elephant in the room.’, however, the majority tend to ignore the poor pachyderm until he grows gigantic and stumbles around making a mess. When in reality, if someone would have just passed around the peanuts, the cleanup would have been kept to a minimum.  A few…

What’s the music of your heart?

We all have that favorite song or in my case… SO many songs. One song that fits each of my many moods (some say personalities, yet how can others comprehend clearly what is inside of another being?) and a song for most situations.  Music, it is natures words made sound, it is nourishing to our…

Yuletide greetings

Well, the holiday season is in full swing, now starting well before Thanksgiving and the dreaded Black Friday in shopping terms. The day after we have devoured our flightless friends, we string up the lights, start wrapping the presents, and blast yuletide musical madness through the speakers.  Some begin this practice earlier, some later, and…

A New Normal

Ever had the brakes put on suddenly in life only to crash anyway?  Or feel like you ran face smack into a unforgiving wall of brick and mortar?  The thing about those ‘accidents’ is that life never goes on as it was.  Whether it was a loss of life, job layoff or termination, or maybe…

My Little Social Media Rant

OMGosh!! What a bunch of whiny 2 yr olds!! If you are Christian, Muslim, Atheist, Jewish, Shiite, Transgender, Bisexual, Homosexual, Heterosexual, Young, Old, Middle aged, Black, White, Brown, Yellow, or a hundred other identities we have created- Being a dick on Bookface (or any other social media) isn’t going to change anyone’s mind. It is…

Time traveler wanna-be?

Today is National Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day. My question… why must we set aside only one day a year for this.  At what point must we lose the innocence and wonder to pretend to be a time traveler everyday like when we were young.  As a self proclaimed ‘Whovian’, I say NAY!…
