Why is Picture Placement so Challenging?

As I walk around our home, I have missed seeing many of the pictures we had hanging, or were displayed, throughout our former home. They were always a comfort as many were either pictures I had taken of our kids, their artwork we had framed, or paintings/photographs done by friends of ours. To me, nothing… Continue reading Why is Picture Placement so Challenging?

This Bible Verse is on My Mind

Few know of my religious background or my beliefs. Mainly this is because I’m a fairly private person and I’m respectful of the religious beliefs of others. I would characterize myself as more of a spiritual person over a religious person. The person I speak to the most on religious questions is my mom. Her… Continue reading This Bible Verse is on My Mind

The Great Compromise Has Begun

A few days ago I wrote a post entitled, The Great Compromise. When I wrote it, I thought it might still be a little while before we would get to that point. Apparently my thinking was way off.

I needed something different as the staying at home, although I know it’s needed and why, is getting old. My day was a nice respite. I was able to sleep in a little bit because… Continue reading Took a Break Today

Saturday Night “Live” in the Age of COVID-19

This evening, after getting caught up with The Masked Singer (yes, I know, but what you going to do?), I watched Saturday Night Live Home Edition. It was better than I thought it would be! The cast was creative in garnering props from around their homes (RGB skit was the brilliant in this aspect; the… Continue reading Saturday Night “Live” in the Age of COVID-19

Nationally, We are Leaderless. Why Aren’t Governors Uniting?

Everyday we hear of governors going on TV and stating all the things the Federal government isn’t doing. Many also let us know, because there is no national leadership, they are each bidding against one another for needed supplies to treat COVID-19. There is a National Governors Association to which I believe all governors belong… Continue reading Nationally, We are Leaderless. Why Aren’t Governors Uniting?

ACEs and Resilience

Today the movie Resilience was streaming free if one had reserved a ticket to do so in advance. Many of my coworkers had spoken highly of the short documentary. It is about Adverse Childhood Experiences and resilience in the face of adversity. The documentary was good, but in a bad way. I say good because… Continue reading ACEs and Resilience
