Have you ever stopped believing in someone? In you? In goodness?

When is too much TOO much? When do human beings stop? When do we stop being someone else’s everything? Be it a friend, a mother, a spouse, a mentor, a companion in this crazy world — when does the last straw become the last straw? When do we stop believing in ourselves, in someone else?? 

Why you should never let time have her way with you.

“Lost time is never found again.” ~ Benjamin Franklin I made a huge colossal mistake this last year.  I let time have her way with me. I let her creep up and pass me by without so much as a glance in her direction.  I squandered the present until it became the past and I failed…

Is a life ever unworthy of life?

Remembering the autocracies of war on Pearl Harbor Day … The other day, I upgraded my “something-something Samsung” to an iPhone 6Plus. It took about an hour for the transformation to be processed and completed — an hour wasted, or so I thought. During that time, I stood next to an older gentleman who was also…

In the company of a fallen sailor …

THANK YOU

On Monday, I asked my son if he knew what day it was … he tilted his head, squinted his eyes, lifted his finger to his chin and tapped away like he was seriously considering some life altering decision.  And then,             “Library day!”  He replied.             Ah, yes.  I thought.  Library day … I…

Use it up, Wear it out, OR do with out!!

So I sat and started to write this great little post about one something or another and then … then I read one of those “Today in History” sidebars … “Shoe rationing in the United States ends, October 30, 1945” WTF??  What in the world is shoe rationing??  Really, I am a fairly well educated…
