Day 19: I Love Paris – Part One

Day 19: I Love Paris – Part One

OK everyone, this is called my “Better late than never post”. Here it is – finally! European Tour Day 19! Because, I think it’s a great idea to escape, and go to Paris together. Don’t you? And, because I like to finish what I started a year ago. Continue reading

Running Away Every Day

Running Away Every Day

I’ve been running a lot lately. At this point, my October marathon still seems distant enough that I’m not panicking, but I’ve found that lately my psyche can’t survive without my training schedule. Let’s face it, with all the Continue reading

Extraordinary Ordinary Life

Extraordinary Ordinary Life

Today was a regular ordinary day in my regular ordinary sort of life. There’s no earth-shattering news to share, and nothing notably remarkable happened. But, it’s another day of life. My life.

Singing and Healing Together

Singing and Healing Together

I have been singing all of my life. I started singing as a baby. As a young child I loved to sing all day long. I remember singing while I played dolls, and while I pumped my legs on the swing-set, and while I skipped down the street. I remember singing myself to bed at … Continue reading

New Life, New Hope, New Year

New Life, New Hope, New Year

The family and I just stepped outside for our annual MIDNIGHT BASH – i.e. banging on pots and pans as loudly as possible and screaming “HAPPY NEW YEAR!!” at the top of our lungs! (Yes, I am sure all our new neighbors love us now). And thus we say adieu to 2016, and hello to 2017. A Lot Happened … Continue reading
