One of my favorite bits about being off work for 4 days! I get to catch up via phone/video chat with many friends and family members. I’ve been working my way through a list of friends that I’ve scheduled calls with this weekend. Sounds silly to have to schedule a call with a friend however,Continue reading “Hear me out…”
I spent a weekend away on a retreat with seven other humans, four of whom I had never met. I was so, so very ready for a getaway. Work pace has been non-stop (who knew so many homeowners would re-do their kitchen during the last 18 months?!) I was counting on quiet time, meditation time,Continue reading “What’s so funny?”
I’ve heard more than my fair share of conversations of late regarding spirituality. I’ve heard of friends enlisting a ‘spiritual director’ even though they are involved in a religious organization. Now, let me be clear- I’m referring to spirituality NOT religion. So I asked my good friend and mentor, what she really meant by theContinue reading “Spiritual Condition?”
There are few things in life that bring me instant joy like the images and videos of baby kangaroos. My only regret is I did not get to visit this joyous sanctuary on my visit to Australia. Do you have something – an image? a song? – or a person? that immediately brings joy toContinue reading “The Go-To”
I recently streamed a FB LIVE about the importance of connection and how trust factors in when the connection has been broken or dormant for many years. I talked some about how essential these links are to my personal happiness. I thought that my renewed endeavors to re-connect with two friends with whom I hadContinue reading “Trust & Connection”
The #AprilDeskEscape photos are starting to come in for this year’s challenge. I’ll keep posting to the gallery as they do. Do join us!
I get it. Everyone is in the same boat when it comes to feeling unsettled after a year of lockdowns. Best thing about it? We’re not alone. The worst thing about it? We feel all alone. I’ve been preparing for two conferences. No matter the project management app, tool, time invested-It’s been terribly challenging toContinue reading “What direction is up?”
Wow. I love my blog. I love my intention to write about humor, health, happiness. Here’s the truth. I was CRUSHED. I could not write. I could not cry. I was suffering from a tsunami of anxiety leading up the U.S. Presidential election, the outcomes, the lawsuits, the recounts…the whole damn thing. I know, IContinue reading “And then what happened?”
I love a great playlist. Isn’t music fantastic? It can inspire, change our moods, and take us immediately back to a moment in time. I was thrilled when a college classmate created a Spotify playlist that reflected the music we listened to and danced to at our college pub. I also created a playlist forContinue reading “For the love of music”
I love Fall. It’s so special in New England. I pulled over and captured this video tonight as I was driving to pick up takeout. (Takeout hot pastrami& swiss cheese from Anthony’s Food Shop in York, Maine is y-u-m-m-y! btw) Each take from the same bridge, same time but on opposite sides.
