This Girl is On Fire!

I am walking on fire, yet, cool and peaceful as a coastal sunset… Where do I begin? I have missed writing. My creativity has been pushed aside for the “to-do” list, buried under a pile of an administrative abyss.  It has become my internal volcano building energy waiting in frustration to erupt. I was either…

All I want for Christmas is…

Tradition, as defined in my iPhone dictionary app, is a specific practice of long-standing and/or an inherited pattern of thought or action.  Basically traditions are those rituals we perform over and over, through the years and pass down to our kids.  We may tweak what our parents did or start new ones.  Traditions are like…

The Eyes Have It

I love the eye lock.  You can almost guess what the other person is feeling in the eye lock.  Take for instance an infant in her mother’s arms.  When I held my babies, I looked deep into their eyes loving them to their core.  They would stare back knowing they were safe and loved.  Back…

What Happened to Vinny?

Planning my trip to the desert strip was interesting this time around.  We try to get to a few shows, including big headliners like Rod Stewart and Ray Romano.  This time of year, many of the usual big names are taking a hiatus.  So it was easy to convince my husband to see Donny &…

I Found My Mojo!

After the summer of indulgence, eating, drinking and low-keyed workouts, I found myself needing the jaws of life to get into my fav jeans.  Well, you know what this does to a girl.  I had lost my mojo.  I lost my adrenaline in the gym, the ability to limit my caloric intake and the spark…

It's Not Personal, Sonny….

According to Don Miguel Ruiz and the Toltecs, never take anything personally is agreement number two.  This one is my biggest struggle.  It has taken me all these years to finally be able to laugh at myself, but I have the hardest time separating someone’s actions from me.  According to “The Four Agreements” (“the book”…

All The Shrinks I've Loved Before

In the spring of 1996, I buckled my two and four-year old boys into my Ford Aerostar and headed to Nashville from Atlanta. My grandmother was visiting her sick brother who was being cared for by his daughter, my beloved cousin, Christine. It was a great chance for my boys and I to visit with…
