Tuesday Nights

A fun question to ask someone as you get to know them is whether they consider themselves an introvert or an extrovert. In essence, the answer to that question provides some insights as to how that person is refreshed. An extrovert is refreshed when they are around other people… the so called “energy in the […]

I recently came across an interesting story that got me thinking…   A mysterious letter A small family, known as the Harts, living in an average suburban community, received an unusual letter from an unknown distant relative.

My Shadow

Have you ever experienced a situation that was so far out of your comfort zone that you thought perhaps you were crazy? In addition, was this experience by choice?  Had you been advised by someone you respect to move forward, take the next step, be bold?   Diving in I remember, years ago, getting my […]

Sheeple

I have this recurring visual in my head of when I was a child. During the summer, we would go up to the mountains.

My Capitol Experience

I find it interesting how a date will memorialize a moment in time. Loss has a particular ability to memorialize itself. We have all experienced some form of loss or another in the past year.
