For Anyone Who May Deign To Care

After posting yesterday, I did eeny-meeny-miney-moe on the two books and ended up reading Joel's book first. Actually, I would have read it first anyway for several reasons: It was shorter, I wanted to see how my nephew (who is white) thinks in regard to diversity and inclusion, and I was curious...

I Did It

I went out in the rain to CVS and got my flu shot for this season. I also got a book for myself to read, a bag of Werthers Original Zuckerfrei choco candy drops to suck on while I read David Baldacci (A Memory Man Thriller) "REDEMPTION". When I got back home the mail was in and in my box was the... Sign in to see full entry.

A Note To A Family Member Today

" As you can see, I couldn't come to your book signing, but I would love for you to sign one for me to buy and I will get it as soon as I can.

Did You Ever Feel A Little Down? When nothing seems to be setting quite right, just a little off, and something is needed to smooth out the rough places, but you don't know what that thing is, and then you stumble into something that is just exactly what you need to set your spirit free and a smile...

Thinking Time

So here I am once more at almost midnight. Everything is dark but for the computer and a small lamp, everything quiet except for the voices in my head, and somewhere off in another part of the building, on another floor, a far-off banging on a door and a name being called floats off into the...

Making Sense Of It All

"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it." ~ Charles Swindoll The year 2020 is definitely keeping me on my toes.
