Why are we here?

Meet my Gregory.  He's my oldest child -- just turned 21.  This photo was taken at our celebration of his birthday.  I have two other children, Nicholas (18) and Jacquelyn (17).  So... 21 years (and 9+ months ago) I said to my husband, are…

Responsibility

, , ,
As a woman, all my life, I've coddled and placated people when things haven't gone right for them, saying things like, "I understand”, or “I know how hard it is". Until today.  I have reached my limit for being able to listen to the blame…

The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle

I started reading The Power of Now yesterday.  I'm only up to page 14, and have seen some promise in this book as part of my journey of discovery.  Bare with me -- I have to ramble on a bit to explain things, and I'll get back to the reason…

, , , , ,
So, it has taken 45 years for me to start figuring things out.  I guess that's better than never. I have always advocated being proactive.  During my corporate career one of my job functions was quality improvement.  That is what I base…
