A Story of Strings


The photo challenge this week is about sharing a three-picture story.  I took a look back in my archive of photos I've taken with my phone and these three stood out for me. Last Fall my husband and I went to an indoor farmer's market.  It's a well-known one in Pawtucket, Rhode Island at the … Continue reading A Story of Strings

World Menopause Day…Really?!


Yesterday I wrote about a visit with my doctor.  One of the biggest take-a-ways from the appointment, as I mentioned, was his declaration of why I'm not feeling like myself:  "You're without a thyroid and you have likely entered menopause."  He declared it with a smile on his face and so matter-of-factly, that I had … Continue reading World Menopause Day…Really?!

First off is my … Continue reading Sisters (in-law) by Chance, Family Forever

The Legacy I Hope to Live Up To


Imagine yourself at the end of your life. What sort of legacy will you leave? Describe the lasting effect you want to have on the world, after you’re gone. Always interesting when we attempt to think about the impact we might have on the world.  One of my dreams is to write a book that … Continue reading The Legacy I Hope to Live Up To
