Dads...
I think about the Dads I've known throughout my life and how they influenced me. I had one growing up and another as an adult. I've had a father-in-law and a man who called me his daughter-in-law. I've seen the bright smiles of new dads and I've witnessed t...

Matriarchs...
Lately I've been thinking about my ancestors. Tonight I want to focus on the women. I am thinking about the men as well, but I'm not ready to write about them yet.  What do I say here? My mother was a mystery to me. I can honestly say that there was never a...

Upside down, but hanging in there...
Whew! What a ride this last 2 weeks has been! Everything went a lot haywire and for a little bit of time I truly felt that nothing would be right for a long, long time. But I have a place to sleep, the cats are safe, and my stuff is in storage, I'm still mo...

Almost done
There it is. Almost everything that I own is in the corner of my apartment living room. I will admit that it struck me for a moment, just how small of a space that really is, but after a little while (and a few lovely words from friends), I'm actually prett...
