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.

The Laundromat

My Kidney Disease Diagnosis

When I Run I Feel Strong

When I run I feel strong. When I run I feel strong mentally and physically. When I run I feel like I am a badass. When I run my shoulders are back, my head is held high, my gaze is up and forward, I feel invincible. I am to the point now where I can … Read more

A Letter To My Younger Self

I don’t know if its because I’m turning 59 years old (short of 60….yikes!) this year or that I’m just at a point in my life that I’m doing a lot of reflecting of what my life has been and what the future may hold for me, but here it goes. Observations and thoughts of … Read more
