Forget Sugar: Get Out The Sponge Bob Bandaids

As I begin to write, my first thoughts are of the people of Chile. Rocking a 8.8 earthquake must feel like the world is coming to an end. When mother nature decides to roll over in bed, we are thrown to the floor and shown  how little we control. Catastrophes like this are a sober […]

Saturday afternoon was spent driving the back roads of Sonoma County searching out painting locations. There were huge tropical clouds floating above golden fields of mustard flowers.   How fortunate I am  to be living in such a beautiful part of the world! I am currently taking an online landscape class and all of my […]

I was […]

The American Dream is Missing From the News Like a 20-year old Man at a La Leche Rally.

We live in a forbidding time. It seems like every time I turn around the news is talking about foreclosures and job loses.

It’s Never Too Late To Go After A Dream

I concluded my last week of blues with a knock out flu and am happy to report I have turned the corner. I am in recovery both emotionally and physically. Last week I was ready to throw in the towel and admit defeat with bad “mojo” running through my head… Who am I, as an […]
