We March

I am still energized from attending the Women’s March this past weekend, alongside hundreds of other women and men. I’m not sure why there were only hundreds of people, as opposed to thousands. Maybe because we are living in the time of Covid. While attending, I was filled with feelings of empowerment, knowing that we … Read more

I’m Moving Out

I think it was January or February of 1989. It had to be one of those months because it was ass cold outside as I was standing at a bus stop in Chicago, waiting to catch a ride home with my dear friend. We were wearing dress shoes and our Class A military uniforms (for … Read more

What Do I Need To Improve?

I would definitely say that there’s room for improvement…for myself and my life. And, since we’re all staying home and trying to get through this pandemic, I can’t think of a better time to try and make some positive changes.

Be Kind

The words “be kind” are all over social media these days. Why is it that we see and hear these words now more than ever? Is it because of the state of our nation and world? With that, does that mean we all need to work harder at being a good neighbor? With the loss … Read more

Dating at 50

After my divorce, I was ready to hop on that horse. To be clear I am not saying back on the horse because I was never really on it. I met my ex-husband at the age of 16 and was with him until I was 48. I had never been with anyone else before or … Read more

Living My Bucket List

Life has a 100% mortality rate and we are not getting out of this life alive. So, why not live life to the fullest?! Okay, so that may sound a little morbid, but it’s true. So, why not throw all caution to the wind, or at least make a long list and start checking things … Read more
