Reset My Life

Some days you just want to hit the reset but­ton. You know what I’m talk­ing about. You over­slept or sim­ply woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Your feet hit the ground and you know you’re in for a doozy of a day. Then, as you head out into the great wilds of…

Life is Like Art

I’ve always enjoyed art. Paint­ing, sewing and craft­ing have been some of my favorite pas­times. I love to cre­ate some­thing beau­ti­ful and won­drous out of the ordi­nary. Not that all art is pleas­ant to look at. I once went to a World War 2 remem­brance art show. Wow! Tough stuff to look at. Heart wrench­ing…
