BEING ARTISTIC

“There are no rules to creativity.”  Laura Jaworski After the holidays I have the custom to quickly re-gift items that don’t fit into my chosen lifestyle, but that someone else might enjoy.  This year I received an adult coloring book (the meditative kind) and some markers.  I asked a friend if her granddaughter might find…

KLEENEX IN THE LAUNDRY

“I thought I checked all the pockets.” Did you ever?  OK.  Maybe you’re more organized than I am.  If not, you’re in a world of trouble. At any rate, one of my least favorite “adventures” is to open the washer and discover that someone, not naming names, left a tissue in one of her pockets…

FIFTY-TWO CHANGES

“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are.”  T S Eliot People keep recommending books that could make me a better person.  After a while I realized that I don’t need to become better, I only need to change some of the ways that I navigate through life.…

SENIOR BATHING

“That’s so cute.  They have birdbaths in the church!”  Hilary Duff No, I’m not going to talk about the difference in bathing as a mature person – things like bodies that now have more folds than paper fan.  I’ve been thinking about the issue of falls that can happen more easily to seniors, meaning people…

IS THAT FUNNY?

“Honk if you love Jesus.  Text while driving if you want to meet him.” If you want a good laugh just pay attention to what’s written or said.  Humans are pretty funny animals.  One of my favorite funny places is my kitchen, and not just because of my  attempts at cooking.  I have funny saying…

MARC AND ANGEL

“We are all winging it.  That’s what angels do.” One of my main focuses lately has been decluttering my home.  It’s a process, but as each bit of detritus gets moved out there is less to clean and more space to live.  I’ve also found it necessary to clean out my head.  It’s full of…

MILLION DOLLAR NICKEL

“Everyone you meet has something valuable to teach you.” We recently had an after-the-holidays family gathering.  We hold this yearly gathering at our oldest son’s because they have the most kids and it’s easiest for them to host rather than travel. One of their sons is Jon.  Jon is in his twenties, sure of himself,…

BUCKET LIST NONSENSE

“You are my bucket list.” About 10 years ago a movie, “The Bucket List,” set people running hither and yon so they could jump out of planes, climb mountains, and travel to foreign countries in search of dysentery.  People shared their Bucket Lists as if they were talking about things they’d already accomplished. The point…

IMMUNE SYSTEM CARE

“Money often costs too much.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson First thing I did when I started reading about the immune system and how to care for this part of the body is to find out exactly what the immune system is.  Think white blood cells and other things in your body that seek out and destroy…

HAPPY NEW YEAR, AGAIN

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”  Antoine de Saint Exupery Recently I’ve seen pictures sent from the Voyager space mission.  Their goal – to explore the Universe and possibly find intelligent life.  Fortunately, they didn’t turn their cameras too often on this here planet in their search.  Right now it seems we’re…
