Be A Prowess In Love

Sometimes you have to come to terms with life and decide to let go and BE MADE. This is an acronym that has encouraged me through the years. I’d like to share the first letter with you. That B stands for “Be a Prowess In Love.” Too often we focus on the things we don’t(…)

Deep In The Noise…

As we go through the day working among noise, let’s make all effort to listen to the one usually heard calmly and softly in the background.  You know, the one we love to bury with in a “tomorrow” that never seems to come. I don’t know about you, but what I find to be true(…)

How I Learned To Tie My Shoe Strings

How I Learned To Tie My Shoe Strings

It was probably my eldest sister who first taught me to tie my shoe when I was a child.  She had a bunch of responsibilities.  Among these was to look out for 4 little hoodlums (my other siblings and I). Growing up, I was not very fond of shoes.  We loved exploring land, pond and(…)
