50 Years Of Learning

On September 3rd, I turn 50.    Y’all, it’s weird as hell.  It’s a number that doesn’t feel like it fits but I know I’ve been through a lot.    In an effort to be somewhat introspective, I sat down to make a list of what I know so far. I don’t know if it will…

UPDATE: WOW, Time Flies! — Recurve Emma

YES.  This is my baby.  I am sharing her post today with you guys because, well, she’s flipping awesome and she deserves it!

Intentions, yo!

Hey ya’ll!  It’s that time of year again. 2016 can suck it, amirite? While I did get to do a lot of cool things, one thing that did not happen was finding time in 2016 for all my intentions, I am keeping it simple: 2017 is all about ME. I can already hear you saying “she will…

Modern Romance

    I highly recommend the Netflix show referenced in this blog.  Seriously funny while talking about the sometimes sad ways digital life has invaded real life. Good read!  ==>  Source: Modern Romance

Do you know that feeling; when you have not been to the gym in a year, and decide to go back? You hop on an elliptical, set it to its maximum uphill climb level, start pedaling at 3.2 mph, then after 4 and a half minutes, get dizzy and vomit? So…
