#75HardChallenge You Bet It Is!!
“Age is just a number,” is a concept I’ve always seemed to embrace although sometimes I have to admit, in retrospect, my escapades can be viewed as a little crazy! Usually my catalysts when participating in my “extreme” undertakings are my daughter and/or niece who are both adept in convincing me that I am up … Continue reading
How A Television Show Changed My Perspective
I am addicted to the UK version of the show “Long Lost Family.” Episode after episode, birth mothers search for the children they were often forced, coerced or just to young to care for; children, many of whom were raised in loving adoptive families, search for decades for their birth parents.

It’s Saturday night, clock ticking towards midnight, and I’m watching a 2006 movie, The Devil Wears Prada. I bet I am one of a handful of people on earth who has never seen its first run, or its second, or its continuous reruns on cable, Netflix, or any other streaming service.

You know somewhere in the recesses of your mind that space travel may be a remote possibility in your lifetime but the actual “happening” feels as implausible as……., I guess, taking a … Continue reading
Happy Birthday to Me!
Yesterday was my birthday. My 6th decade of life has been filled with awe, wonder, astonishment, extreme loss and unbelievable gratitude.
