I grew up on a country road two miles out of the 'city' of Mosinee. The road hugged the banks of the Wisconsin River and we sat on a couple acres with an ample front and backyard. Our backyard meshed in with a large pine forest which gave way to... Continue reading

This is one of those cartoons I've seen and wish I'd made it... it resonates so fully with me and, I assume, that it probably resonates with you as well. But, it's kind of nice to know that we all don't know together. Something comforting in that for me! Continue reading

Everyone has stories of things that they are told happened to them during the early years of ones life that one doesn't/cannot remember, in that time before our consciousness 'wakes up' and we start being aware of our life. For me, these include, being obsessively protected by our family's big... Continue reading

Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course Lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, The glory of action, The splendour of achievement Are but experiences of time. For yesterday is but a dream And... Continue reading

Well, as I posted a few days ago, all will be revealed on/around February 1. Hope this is teaching you patience, because that's what this process has been teaching me. Small, incremental changes each day towards a goal, which, in and of itself, is only really a step to a... Continue reading

I was born in a paper mill town called Mosinee, in the central part of Wisconsin. My parents' house sat on the edge of a thick woods just a few minute walk from the Wisconsin River. We weren't on a farm, but we didn't live in town either. We were... Continue reading

If someone asked you, 'what is your story?' what would you tell them? Would the sum total of your Story be - "I went to work and then I got married and then I died" ? Hopefully not. What did you DO? What are you most proud of? What did... Continue reading

Here in New York City the Mister and I have spent the day just kind of lounging and spending the day indoors. It isn't particularly cold but we stayed up late decorating the tree and watching the back half of Downton Abbey season 6. Yeah, we're a little late to... Continue reading

A couple years ago, just prior to the Presidential election, I worked at an event held at Ellis Island. Walking the sane steps that so many immigrants had on their way to a better life was inspiring. Most of us probably really have no idea what it's like to have... Continue reading

In a world where Presidential elections get rolling roughly two to three years ahead of time, now that the genie is out of the bottle of getting the Xmas... Continue reading
