Looks pretty normal, right (the first picture)? But look at the other side (the second picture)… and remember this: things, and people, aren’t always presenting their whole story. When the Camp Fire levelled the Town of Paradise in November 2018, few homes were spared total destruction; mine was one of them. “You’re so lucky!” I … More You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know
The truth is, you don’t have to like everyone; everyone doesn’t have to like you. Even if you have been connected at some point in the past; even if you are “family.” It isn’t a blight on you as a person, or on them; it simply means you are, now, in different places in this … More Do You.

About twenty years ago, I noticed a small “freckle” on my leg that hadn’t been there before, approximately an eighth of an inch in diameter, smaller than … More Healing From the Inside Out
Sometimes, you just have to go to a darker place. I am in a hole. I’ve been in a hole for awhile. Try to put a happy face on, and succeed, most days. There is much to be grateful for. Much is good in my world. Still, here I am, in this hole. Please, don’t … More The Hole Story
