Perspective

Feeling Guilty?

Feeling Guilty?

Feeling guilty? Honestly, only for about 3 minutes! Most household chores completed, business tasks on point, and appointments set.  When I knew school would be cancelled today, I worked to get many tasks out-of-the-way yesterday.  This morning, I did manage to make coffee and oatmeal, listen to a podcast and obviously, I’m writing now. So there […]

Why Travel is Important

As I sat in the San Antonio International Airport waiting to head home, it hit me.  Was it the best time to take a trip?  That depends on perspective.  On one hand, I haven’t found a new job yet so maybe I shouldn’t have spent the money. On the other hand, I can list positives […]

Are You Living in a Cage?

Are You Living in a Cage?

Well, that’s a random (however, truthful) question for a Wednesday, but certainly an important one to ask: are you living in a cage?  I don’t mean that literally of course, but metaphorically, do you feel trapped in your own home, job, marriage, family?  Perhaps, worst of all, do you feel trapped in your own mind; so […]

Oh what a year!

Oh What a Year!

Oh what a year! On this last day of 2018 (and now into the early hours of 2019), I sit with a glass of wine, in my comfy pj’s and watching the final Hallmark Christmas movies. I also find myself struggling with what to put on paper.  There were plenty of good times and memories, […]

Ten Seconds

If You Had Ten Seconds

If I gave you ten seconds to use however you wish, what would you choose?  On one hand, you may think, that’s not enough time, why even bother?  On the other hand, you might just think about a few things that could fit in that extremely small window. Ideas Jog in place Do some jumping […]

Laughter is Best Medicine

Laughter is the Best Monday Medicine

Monday…not a lot of good things are associated with this day.  You can find many memes about dread, doom and gloom, and overall disdain for this day.  On the other hand, there are equally good motivational and inspiring quotes that aim to support us as we dive in and tackle the Monday Blues!  This morning, […]

I love you 17 day challenge

I Love You! 17 Day Challenge

I Love You! 17 Day Challenge! Saturday, October 28, 2018 my city of Pittsburgh was rocked by a crime of pure hate and evil. The quiet, welcoming neighborhood of Squirrel Hill experienced a day that no town should ever have to go through.  Each one of these incidents is heartbreaking, but when it happens in […]

Photography vs. The World

Photography vs. The World

I’m not certain if we realize just how much photography impacts our world.  It provides glimpses into corners of the world we may never see, it helps to preserve our memories, it shows us both the joys and atrocities all around us.  Sometimes though, they represent a distorted view.  The use of filters and apps, […]

Tribute

Tribute to the Coolest Friend I Never Met

I originally published this on October 9, 2016; feeling the need to run this again today in tribute to the coolest guy!  I have updated the date/time reference. Five or six years ago, give or take, I read some poetry and viewed some prints on a friend’s Facebook page. I was immediately drawn to the […]
