I want to start doing some posts on different quotes, photographs and paintings, posts to contemplate and inspire. I would love to hear your thoughts as well. I saw this the other day and it stopped me dead in my tracks. I think it is one of the most powerful quotes I have come across. … More Thoughts Through Art
Yes, it is that time of year again – time to make empty and unrealistic New Year’s resolutions. I don’t mean that to sound pessimistic but realistic. It’s no surprise that most people do not follow through with their resolutions. I know that I, myself, usually break them within days or weeks. Am I wrong? … More New Year’s Resolutions

Christmas is four days away and I have decided I … More I Am Done
I just have to say that life sure is throwing a lot at me right now. I guess at least I am in a better place to deal with it, at least I think. I posted my personal letter to Santa last week, about being in desperate need of a Christmas miracle to fill my … More Losing My Christmas Miracle
