Cherishing the Moments

I recently had the opportunity to travel with my parents back to my hometown. We all now live several hundred miles from where I grew up, so it took us a couple of days to make our journey. Our trip brought me back to a truth I believe in – life really is much moreContinue reading “Cherishing the Moments”

Lonely…. or Royalty?

Today my writing was slightly different, I hope you enjoy my journey with you. I am writing to you from a table in the center of a restaurant. I do feel the need to tell you that I don’t sit at tables, thus I don’t sit in the center of the restaurant. Personally, I likeContinue reading “Lonely…. or Royalty?”

Every now and then you get a unique opportunity in life. I am not referring to a lottery win, that would be nice, but I am talking about other opportunities.

The only water I thought about today was ice and snow as I watched it melt.  I would bet you thinkContinue reading “Barnacles or Oars?”

Tired of Traveling?

There are so many expectations that sometimes I find it beyond challenging to keep up with them. Have you ever felt like that?Continue reading “Tired of Traveling?”

We live busy lives in a busy world, and yet sometimes we feel completely alone while surrounded by people. I am sorryContinue reading “Lonely, but not Alone”
