She Was More Than Just a Princess

I can’t…I seriously can’t… I’m devastated! But I feel this needs to be said… My Facebook feed right now, is full of Star Wars photos.  Normally, I would be jumping for joy at the announcement of a new movie or trailer, but as you may have already heard, our beloved Carrie Fisher has become one with the Force (and the […]

My Life Was Changed By Russ Weatherford

Today, August 10th (8/10) at 8:10am, I lost another dear friend, Russ Weatherford.  That’s my third loved one lost in less than a year’s time!  But after fighting pancreatic cancer for almost a year and a half, and after another six months of unknown pain even before that, I am almost certain that Russ is resting peacefully without pain and where […]

Leap Day

It’s Leap Day! It also happened to be bridge night. Now, I’m not usually one to take extra advantage of Leap Day, but to some, today is an extra day to do something–anything–so long as it’s a positive activity.  Do something MORE.  Do something you might never do on the boring other 365 days of the year.  The expression, “Seize […]

In Loving Memory of Marie Bernard

I had to miss bridge this week.  I don’t like skipping bridge, but every now and then a work meeting comes up, or I have to schedule a meeting with my illustrator (I’m currently writing a children’s book). This Monday, however, I had to ditch bridge so that I could travel home to Boston…for a funeral.  I know you’re gonna ask […]
