Selfies – me and…

I am never satisfied with the pictures I take of myself.  Perhaps because my ‘selfies’ reveal too much physical truth. I should be more concerned whether they reveal the real truth. What is my real truth?  It is my spiritual selfie –Me and the… Continue Reading “Selfies – me and…”

Marriage and Men-O-pause

When things happen in the haze of early morning awakening there is no evidence of reason – it’s simply panic – especially if the wife is in menopausal fog. The evening before I’d been restless, out of sorts hormonally, and as my easy-going hubby… Continue Reading “Marriage and Men-O-pause”

I Quit!

I quit. I’ve heard that multiple times this week. A widow whose appliances and home construction is failing day by day and she has no idea how to get them fixed or replaced. An empty nester mom trying to make it on a smaller… Continue Reading “I Quit!”
