Ways to Pass Time…with Quarantine Wine….

Posted on

It’s no secret that life as we knew it is gone…replaced with an inverted sense of time, myriad thoughts and emotions that span the spectrum from angry to confused to quarantine living like a zen monk.

Regarding COVID-19, What’s REAL…

Today I was reading a profound article by the highly respected Dr. Christiane Northrup, and I decided to share her wisdom with you. Dr. Northrup has long been the voice of reason when it comes to women’s health and wellness, and this “COVID period” is no exception. In fact, maybe now more than ever we […]

What Have You Been Learning Since Being Quarantined?

Posted on

I’ve found a bright spot in the mandate to stay home: Living under quarantine rule lights a fire under me to learn new things. As example, since I am currently in a State where wine delivery is a felony, I am learning the art of wine making. It’s surprisingly easy, and I’m really enjoying learning […]

Do You Know What Day It Is? Since we’ve been isolating in the hope of “flattening the curve” of Coronavirus it’s getting harder and harder to keep track of what day it is. Mental health professionals are suggesting we keep a schedule during these unprecedented times of social isolation. They also suggest we shower and […]

Our Fragile Planet Earth

Posted on

Our fragile planet Earth is speaking to us with urgency. I wonder if we’re listening…. In only a few months, the Earth has suffered unimaginable fires globally, devastating floods, unnerving earthquakes and aftershocks, and deadly viruses that have resulted in shortages of everyday items we never imagined being without. You have to admit that when […]

Grace as a Safe Place

Posted on

Finding grace isn’t always easy. But as habits go, grace as a safe place is a good default to create. When we default to a state of grace, we experience a calm under the most stressful conditions. That state of grace is something I have been short on recently, and today I am vowing to […]

The Changing Moods of Mona Lisa

Posted on

Today I’m using Mona Lisa in an attempt to flush you with some much needed humor… Mona Lisa BC (before Coronavirus)… Mona Lisa today…. Things have become entirely too serious around here, so let’s lighten things up with some comedic Covid-19 posts. I want to be perfectly clear here: I’m not saying for a moment […]

Over 300 Earthquake Aftershocks and Counting

Posted on

Yet another series of earthquakes have rattled my nerves today, with the count so far being over 300 earthquake aftershocks and counting…. My head is sloshing, a case of continuous vertigo as I subconsciously wait for the next tremor. It reminds me of when I was a child who had been roller skating, and once […]

How Has YOUR Life Changed?

Posted on

Today I wandered around the house looking for signs of earthquake damage. Now I am considering the ways in which my life has changed in a few short weeks, and days, and really, as things are seemingly changing minute-by-minute, I’m noticing how life has changed by only hours. And so, with that consideration in mind, […]

America’s first female millionaire, Madam C.J. Walker was born Sarah Breedlove one year after the abolishment of slavery. She toiled as a “washerwoman” for the first years of her life. As the story goes, Sarah began losing her hair, and eventually worked out a remedy and a quality marketable product to help other women. It […]

Watch Your Screen Time

Posted on

Many of us around the globe are under mandatory quarantine, or at least living according to the admonishment of self-isolation. This excess time that was once occupied by other interests and tasks often means more screen time for most of us. It also likely means more “news” coming into our sight lines more often. Those […]

In the Immortal Words of Gilda Radner…

Posted on

In the Immortal Words of Gilda Radner, “It’s always something”! I had anticipated not writing until sometime after the US elections were done, and the mud-slinging, un-friending on social media, and family feuds were settled. But that was before Covid-19 became a household word, and “Corona” ceased to call for a lime on the rim. […]

Hiatus

Posted on

I’ve decided to take a hiatus from social media until the US election dust settles. I may blog from time to time, but not on any predictable schedule. You’re free to email me, but for now, I want to remove myself from the angry threads and blood pressure-raising content that spews across the waves. I’m […]
