There, I think that covers everyone!

MAY I HUG YOU has passed it “use by date.”

It is time to hit the pause button, step back and regroup.

It has been a great and grand ride. Starting with my –

January 30, 2017.

Is it really two years ago than I wrote this headline?

Yes, I checked and double checked. It is. Some of you might remember. Some newcomers to my website, won’t.

But here I am. Nothing has changed. I still write because I cannot NOT write.

Thoughts become...

Tear my clothes. Thump my chest.

Alas. This is the 21st Century. If I did something like the above, someone would call 911 and they’d take me away for evaluation. Probably Baker Act me should the Captain object and tell them it’s normal behavior.

Normal for me, that is.

Lately, I’ve been quietly freaking out.  And after the “derrring do” this past weekend in Washington, even more than usual.

I grew up in a home where my brothers wouldn’t sit down to a meal before my mother was seated.

They’d stand behind their chairs. Respectfully. The one nearest to her would pull out her chair and wait until she sat.

My brothers would open car doors for me.

I’m Tired, Overwhelmed and Confused.

What evil spirit prompted me to check my “likes” on May I Hug

That website. My first born, the child of my heart, the one linked to Facebook.

I gave that infant all my love. My attention. My affection. My time.

I spent hours fi...

The spiritual part of our being never says “I can’t.” It simply soaks up everything around it. (Oswald Chambers)

For a while now, I’ve been wondering whether there’s still a book lurking somewhere inside me.

I believe in each of us there are stories. Some good. Some bad.
