I had a fantabulous, splendiferous time at the Highland Games! My friend and I wore ourselves out. The opening ceremony had me in tears. There were several pipe and drum bands participating, I would guestimate 150-200 pipers. I was in tears from... Read more

Well, last week started with bang and ended with a whimper (and some tears). I tripped on the way from the car to the office…2 bruised (to the bone) knees, scrapped up elbow and bruised palm. Honest to goodness, no wonder my knees are so frac... Read more

Epilogue for this Saturday

Saturday, March 07, 2015      4 comments

I started this day in confusion, chaos and a small bit of despair. By the simple(or not so simple in this case) act of journaling, I have released so much tension, so much negativity, so much sadness and confusion. This is not to say I am where... Read more
