Healing is not linear.

It is what it is.

Just breathe.  Life goes on.

Don’t believe everything you think.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Don’t trade your authenticity for approval.

Don’t let others decide who you are.

You are entirely up to you.

Be weird in your own way.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Christmas Charades December 15, 2020

Looking for ideas for Christmas gatherings this year (including those via ZOOM)?

Consider a cacophonous game of Christmas Charades!

Pass out age-appropriate assignments to all attendees and let holiday hilarity ensue:

* Santa coming down the Chimney in full regalia (see right)

Uh-oh, he’s stuck!
Can you say Claus-trophobia?

* Santa filling the stockings (with COAL)

It’s a dusty job but someone’s got to do it

* Decorating the Christmas tree . . . with cats for companions

Dashing through the house, while looking for a box 
I am ready to pounce, quick as a frisky fox

* Demonstrate the (pre-pandemic) pandemonium of Black Friday Shopping

* Illustrate the after dinner coma  (Snoring = optional)

Santa’s after-season sabbatical!

Aah . . . that’s better!

I’ve never skied Mt. Ascutney (no big surprise, right?), but I’ve hiked it in the summer.

Many times.

Here’s how the town of Windsor (next town over from where Dad grew up), saved the mountain’s accessibility for the community.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Godspeed RBG! September 20, 2020

Ruth Bader Ginsburg transformed the landscape of America, increasing gender equality and acting as a moral compass for her brethren on the Supreme Court.

She rocked!

If you want more insight, I recommend two recent films ~ RBG and On the Basis of Sex.

She stood for equal rights for all.

Aah . . . that’s better!

A Place to Start June 5, 2020

Many of you have expressed shock and outrage and sadness and grief at recent events.

You know that Black Lives Matter ~> that ALL lives matter.

And perhaps you want to be more involved in efforts to level the landscape and achieve the dream expressed so eloquently by Martin Luther King, Jr. half a century ago.

If so, here’s A Place to Start ~ an incomplete list of resources and organizations for fighting racism and supporting justice and equality put together by MoMA.

Another list of resources and organizations that support of justice and equality has been collated by Poets & Writers.

One world.  One people.

Let’s remember that we are all in this together.
