night pulse

I hope that you are well and at peace tonight. I walked outside and breathed in the Universe for a few minutes earlier. Loving the trees, touching leaves with my fingertips. Barefooted, feeling the earth beneath me.
We have a storm coming, and the sky is a misty, leaded grey. Highlighted against [...]

hopscotch and flying kites

This photo was taken of my granddaughter flying her first kite. Look at that expression! I will never stop looking at this photo. It is innocence. It is joy. It is truth.
Children love every moment of every day. I hope, one day, to be so childlike, so honest, that every moment [...]

more on hydration

Now that I really think about it . . . I am pretty sure that I was dehydrated most of my adult life. I do not remember ever drinking water as part of my diet. I had not a drop of water for years and years. I survived on coffee and sugary brown liquids. [...]

into the night sky

Today is the first day of the rest of my forever. I will cherish this day, and this night, and be thankful for the days I have had, both good and not so good, and whatever tomorrows will become part of my history.
I am beginning to believe that we are all just learning to [...]

she is still me

All of that was years and years ago. I did survive. I did recover. I am strong. I am very strong. I will never get over losing my son, but today it is alright for me to carry that rock in my heart.

living with pain

for may days and nights
and long ago
and years to go from now
if that be so

today

Today is a lovely day. This is my only today, this one day that is mine today. The only moment I have is this one. Right now. Right this very moment.

If you feel hopeless, older than your years, exhausted by 9:00 a.m., or just amazingly stupid. Maybe you are dehydrated.

If you never take another piece of advice in your life, this is the one exception you should make: Hydrate!!!

hydration: a matter of life

I have been dizzy, light headed, unable to make simple decisions, exhausted, and unable to sleep. Wow, that sounds like my whole life.

My sweet little lady doc. called me in the evening and insisted that I go, now, and buy Gatorade and drink a lot of it. “You are severely dehydrated.” – What did I know? I do know, that after a few bottles of Gatorade, I began to feel like a new person.
