“Fairness happens voluntarily. It never happens by control. People have to be free to make mistakes and learn from them. Otherwise, the system is not open and growth is not possible.” ~ Paul Ferrini, I am the Door.
I’m trying to get back to a regular schedule of posting with an inspirational quote on Fridays and a philosophical post on or around Tuesday. In some of the upcoming posts, I’ll be discussing quotes from the person I quoted above. I’m a huge fan of his philosophy which combines psychology with spirituality. I used those aspects in my yet-to-be-published fictional story and quoted him on my blog several times.
Just that simple sentence I’ve written above has received chastisement from some dog-people. Why?
Let me see if I can explain and tie my experience into the quote I cited.
I’ve finally sent my manuscript off to publishers. Yipee!

Every afternoon between two and three o’clock, my husband and I treat ourselves to a cup of hot tea (we both work from home).

Since I’ve been gone from the blogging world, WordPress changed the format for drafting and posting. I don’t like it. It’s taking me forever to figure out how to add photos. What is this block thing? Why can’t I just write paragraphs as if on a page? Why do I need blocks? So frustrating. 🤦♀️Continue reading “Since I’ve Been Gone”
Let Freedom ring.

Over the weekend we went to a nature park near our house. The weather was a little cool, but otherwise, gorgeous. No greenery yet, but it will be here soon. Continue reading “Lingering Effects”
In order to avoid my fate, I stopped living.
I heard a familiar song outside my kitchen window, and guess who I found singing to me?(Please excuse quality of photos. They are taken through the window).
I found an interesting philosophical writing by someone on social media who uses an anonymous name. I’d like to give them credit for it, but I don’t know who it is that wrote it.
I have a covid story to tell.
This was a frightening experience for me, and I’m emotional as I type this out.
In the first part of this blog post, I’m going to share my experience with having covid-19, and how I caught it. This will be much longer than my usual.
During a time long forgotten, when life was still normal and humans didn’t have to wear masks, people were able to hold surprise birthday parties.One year ago today, we held an 80th birthday surprise celebration for my mom. The picture above is when she first walked into the room.
