It is a good thing that embarrassing comments and actions don’t happen often. If I had too many such incidents my life would have ended decades ago. But since the Daily Word challenged us to write on the prompt word ‘Embarrassing’, I decided to open the “Oh my gosh! Did I really say that?” closet… Continue reading Do What?
I know very little about playfulness, and I think it is because there are no grandchildren running around my house. Kids, especially the ones removed from our constant supervision, open us to play.

I don’t know the answer to any of those questions, but recently I caught myself reacting to one I learned as a child: don’t walk under a ladder. Now at 74, one would… Continue reading Am I Superstitious? Not Me!

I reject it when my ego is bruised: “Go away.” I yearn for it when I hurt: “Hold me.” I offer it: “I’m here.” I embrace it always: “Thank… Continue reading Help, Let Me Count the Ways

Harmony is the photo challenge for this week from the Daily Post, and there is a natural harmony between day and night.
