Loneliness, just like other emotions, is a choice.  It’s a message that I tell myself when I am feeling left out, or ill, or depressed, or hounded by dreary thoughts.  All my own doing.  Most of us are firm believers in the... — Updated 10/13/2022

 

TELEMARKETERS AND SCAM ARTIST

Pictures are reminders that this moment will never come again. We are frozen in time for that moment. We will never be here with each other exactly like this again. Collecting family photos has kept me connected since I left my... — Updated 8/5/2021

 

Rituals

I grew up with strong rituals, a set hour for bedtime and arising the next morning, three meals served much the same time each day, every day, home by 6:00 each evening. A day for laundry. A day for ironing, etc. Dependable,... — Updated 7/1/2021
