I had a really difficult time falling asleep. Not just last night. It has been so the past two weeks. One can say I’m running on fumes. I had to step back and tell myself it was ok to just sit and listen to my thoughts. When you […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
My current dog, Winston, is vastly different from my previous dog. Vastly different in every way imaginable. Winston is a bit anxious. Well, very anxious in car rides, elevators and around skateboarders. Living in Los Angeles with him, as a result, was a little stressful in that we […]

And round and round we go. Where to, who knows? They had been driving for hours while trying to figure out what to do next. Her head was spinning with emotion. With unchecked anger. She punched the dashboard a few times. She wanted out. She wanted out! It […]
Many, many years ago when I was dirt poor I needed a new pair of shoes for an event. And, then someone just left a brand new pair of shoes behind that I fit into and managed to keep for five years. Life is a wonder at times. […]
Today there is no snark. No sadness. No complaints. Just gratitude for what I have, including the great people who are my bedrock. I’ve made some good friends this year. I’ve been to some interesting places. I’ve had a variety of great bread pudding. I left ugliness behind. […]
