ALERT ALERT: at risk of losing your lustre
October 19, 2022 After barely two months since said self-care, yesterday I realized that a dullness had begun to fall over my renewed, refueled, and joyful self; that got my attention! The moment this epiphany occurred, I quickly jumped into action. Why?? Well, because this self-care had been quite costly; not only to my finances,Continue reading “ALERT ALERT: at risk of losing your lustre”
Laughter from the Soul
March 1, 2022 I have taken on a new interest in watching how people laugh! I don’t mean a polite laugh or a quick little chuckle. I refer to the kind of laughter that starts from the forehead, involves the eyes, the cheeks, the mouth, shows teeth, and causes the rest of the body toContinue reading “Laughter from the Soul”
Walking through the Thicket
February 23, 2022 It’s so good to be back!!!!! Yaaaay!! Yippy do da!!!! It’s been more than three months since I’ve blogged.

Where’s the Building?
October 17, 2021 So, where is the building, I keep wondering? I thought, maybe they had a setback financially or something related to permits that has slowed their plans. Oh well, I’m sure sooner or later, it will be built. This morning as I rounded the corner and took a quick peek above the metalContinue reading “Where’s the Building?”
The beginning of the end
October 13, 2021 The Fall Season is here! And it didn’t just happen. A cool wind inserted itself during an otherwise hot day about five weeks ago. And, I had thought, okay I’m forewarned, the cold is a-coming! Next thoughts were followed with actions related to the warm/hot weather we experienced for the weeks since;Continue reading “The beginning of the end”
Our trip to New Jersey!
October 10, 2021 On the phone, I cheekily said to my sister, “We’re going to New Jersey. Why do you think?” We had already travelled for several hours, and Mom was comfortably asleep in the back seat of the 2022 Dodge Ram truck we had rented. My sister answered, “New Jersey, why are you goingContinue reading “Our trip to New Jersey!”
October 6, 2021 I am into watching documentaries these days…on important people and events that have occurred both in the distant and recent past. Some recent ones are: Jamal Khashoggi’s death, the American Civil War, the Underground Railroad, Jeff Bezos. Today, while listening and watching some of Bob Marley’s musical videos, in the same veinContinue reading “documentary”
October 3, 2021 Recently, I got ready to make a purchase of $85. for a white linen sundress that had these tiny aquamarine designs on the skirt. Such a happy looking dress, I thought, as I imagined all the occasions I would wear it. It was also handmade, which I always appreciated. I tried itContinue reading “Blind Spots”
Who do you imitate?
September 29, 2021 I imitate others more than I’d like to think, not as in mimicking but more as in reproducing what I see. I suspect that is true for many of us, whether a positive or negative reproduction in our lives. For example, last week I was at a weekend outdoor market. I sawContinue reading “Who do you imitate?”
