There is Enough

The rush is on.  Santa is over feeding his reindeer, polishing the shiny nose of Rudolph, frantically getting the gifts to be delivered in order, and wondering how many toys, clothes, electronics, and do-dads will fit in his ever-increasing sized sleigh. And down on earth world, the lucky ones are buying more goodies so no… Continue reading There is Enough

Bridging the Age Gap

I follow a blog, Time Goes By, written by a 77-year-old woman who has been studying and writing about aging for 25 years (https://www.timegoesby.net/weblog/2018/10/two-excellent-stories-of-youth-and-elders-together.html).

Whose Slip Is it Anyway?

What is My Real Name?

After reading a couple of blogs today, I had an epiphany (the topic of one of the blogs http://joanneeddy.com/2016/01/06/epiphany-on-the-wisdom-of-the-unexpected/?c=1467#comment-1467) about my ‘real’ name (another blog topic). So I decided to write a bit about both. The epiphany came when the writer asked ‘what is your real name?’ It’s a question I’ve fiddled around with for many years,… Continue reading What is My Real Name?
