Wake Up Call

February 19, 2014

I always wondered what would go through my mind if I was in a plane that was going to crash land. Earlier today I found out, and it really wasn’t what I expected. Go figure. It started out as an uneventful trip just like a thousand other flights I’ve taken. I used the sensation of […]

If you ask a man to be more open about what he feels, beware the possibility that you might not like what he has to say. I am posting here about an article that appeared this morning on The Good Men Project titled Sex, Marriage, and the Silent Treatment. Whether you are a man or a […]

Supposedtobes – Ze Frank

November 28, 2013

This came to me courtesy of a new-found friend, and it’s a brief introduction to the work of a fascinating man and a lovely reminder to make of each day what it is.  No more, no less.  Show up, and wonderful things happen, even when they’re not wonderful. “And those supposed-to-be’s, take those to the […]

Relationship failures – doesn’t that sound like a cheery and scintillating subject? One you’re just dying to read about? Yeah right, I hear you thinking. I can fail at relationships all on my own, thanks. So here’s the cut-to-the-chase, abbreviated version: to fail miserably at a relationship, all you have to do is don’t show […]

Thanksgiving in Heaven

November 22, 2012

There is a  story has become something of a tradition in our family, about the real meaning of Thanksgiving and the sharing of blessings. Or at least what it means to me. Last year I shared a shorter version of it in this post. This year it’s on my mind again, particularly as I watch […]

Three Firsts, Three Lessons: on Learning to Love

November 21, 2012

Needless to say, I was a mess, and really stupid about relationships.
