"Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen." -- Brené Brown Have you ever had somebody in your life -- a friend, love interest, or even family member -- abruptly stop communication with you? No more phone calls, no more texts, and maybe they've even blocked or deleted you on social media. If you have experienced this, you may have fallen victim to a new fad colloquially known as "ghosting."...

Nostalgia for a 90s kid
Posted Friday, July 15, at 11:14 PM

The year was 1990-something. I could be found listening to Hanson, Spice Girls, or a number of other popular bands of the time. Slap bracelets were in no short supply, Surge soda had kids bouncing off of walls, and dial-up Internet was all the rage. ...

Playing the blame game -- and losing
Posted Thursday, June 30, at 6:50 PM

"Blame is simply the discharging of discomfort and pain. It has an inverse relationship with accountability." -- Brene Brown. A lot of times "blame" is used to disguise "hurt and pain." When we're young, if we fall and scrape our knee, we're told, "You're fine ... ...

This is a poem I wrote for a very dear friend of mine who passed away a little over 7 months ago. After the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy last week, I thought I would share it here because the sentiments ring true in any situation where you've lost a loved one so early in their life:...

The Battle
Posted Tuesday, July 3, at 5:07 PM

I recently read this short passage by an unknown author and found it worth sharing. Enjoy: An old Cherokee man told his grandson: "My son, there's a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil -- it's anger, jealousy, greed resentment, inferiority, lies and ego...

Black Friday. If you're not familiar with the term, then it's safe to say that you've been living under a rock for a really long time. Designated as the day of the year to get all the best "deals" on all of your holiday shopping, and also the day after Thanksgiving. So...here's the schedule for this week:...

Forever Young
Posted Thursday, November 10, at 7:50 PM

In the chaotic midst of packing things at my house this past week for a move into a different house across town, I happened upon a long-lost treasure of sorts. A home video from 1993. That's right...1993. For the sake of not dwelling on how old that makes me, I'll just go ahead and say I was 5-years-old in the video. ...

My views on a verdict heard around the world...
Posted Thursday, July 7, at 5:15 PM

"Not guilty" ...the words spoken by a court clerk Tuesday that shocked a nation. I watched in my own state of shock while this verdict was handed over in the Casey Anthony trial. Not guilty? Could they be serious? Were the jurors watching the same trial as the rest of the nation? Then I started to think....maybe they weren't...
