FMM 5 5 17 Warts and All

“Live with integrity, respect the rights of other people, and follow your own bliss.”~Nathaniel Branden. For those of us born in the baby boomer generation, most of our childhood photos were taken in school.  Cameras were not common place.  Photos took days to be developed.  What you saw was what you got.  And although we may […]

FMM 23 16 Meditation on the Moon

“There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.”~George Carlin.  I have no definitive memory of when I saw my first full moon.  Spending my first seven years mostly in a city was one factor.  Even when we went on vacation to the less light polluted seaside, I have no recollection of […]

Last Sunday I visited the Everglades.  It has been a while since I went, but it took me back to a time I went there with my parents, along with two of my children.  I remember sending my daughter into the Visitor’s […]

12 27 13 We walk this path together

“In every conceivable way, family is link to the past, and bridge to the future” – Alex Haley. First – a disclaimer: I am struggling to write this morning on my new device (I suppose you could call it an early Christmas gift), an i-pad. And though it is wonderful for addictions such as facebook, […]
