Monday, January 29, 2018      1 comments

It's Monday...and I have had some Sunday evening dreads and Monday morning groggies. It has been a good first full week of classes, so there is no need of worry, but I tend to anticipate tough times each weekend. Silly, really... I did se... Read more
Tingling in my right hand this morning...
Saturday, January 27, 2018      1 comments

It is a bit difficult to grab my shoe laces and tie the bow with my right hand tingling just now. I don't think my hands were tingling when I sat at the harp a few moments a go. What starts the tingling? I wore wrist support on both wrist... Read more
Tuesday is trash day ... the SP perspective
Tuesday, January 23, 2018      1 comments

This is definitely not a new idea or POV. I have read on SP message boards how we can incorporate more activity in our daily lives. SP members have described how they use the opportunity of doing tedious tasks to focus on moving and getting ou... Read more
A serene Sunday

It is nice to be able to wake up slowly, have a cup of coffee without having to gulp it down. The house is relatively quiet. I quickly turned off the news once my spouse had headed out the door to work. Now, I have spent an hour with S... Read more

Back to school dreads
Wednesday, January 10, 2018      2 comments

I do like the beginning of each new semester. I enjoy meeting all my students. I like the feeling of a fresh start -- the feeling of potential. At the same time, I can worry and become anxious about the commute, the prep, the e-mails and ... Read more

Goal Setting: Add more music...

When opportunities to play in an ensemble arise, I jump at that chance. I am very fortunate to have friends at church that are great musicians and also enjoy playing in groups. Too often, however, I find myself saying to myself "oh...I need to... Read more
