Getting Older? Look Wonderful, Be Cool, Do it Your Way


  “Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” Betty Friedan OK, it’s true. Aging isn’t all that fun. I don’t wake up every morning doing the happy dance, chirping “Oh boy. I love, love, love getting older.” No, it’s not like that at all. Not for me, anyway. However, aging isn’t […]

Jim Henson: His Creative Learning and Social Wisdom Legacy


Jim Henson in two words: remarkable visionary. About his dad, Brian Henson wrote in a blog post, “One of his life philosophies was that we should love people not for their similarities, but for their differences.” This single statement beautifully sums up the essence that is collectively, the Muppets. The lesson the Muppets continue to pass on […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections


  I decided to submit an image to the Weekly Photo Challenge based on a reflection of U.S. history and an important figure in that history; Lakota warrior Crazy Horse. This is a great shot of Crazy Horse’s head, which is 87-feet high. The head was completed in 1998. The horse’s head will be 219-feet […]

Heaven-Sent Message in a Postcard from Nova Scotia


No one sends postcards anymore. That’s a shame. A postcard may prove someday to be a humble but emotional link to a loved one. This may come long after they’ve left their earthly existence. Did you know there’s a National Postcard Week? This year it’s May 4–10. Recently, I received a message from heaven. It […]

Cathy with a “C” – Blah to Yeah!


My name is Cathy. No, it’s not short for one of the silkier-sounding names like Cathleen or Catherine. I’m just Cathy. My name is spelled with a “C,” though, not a “K.” My mother said that was special, so it must be, right? Forever, I believed that “C” somehow provided me the right to step ahead […]

Dining with Dead People and Carryout Lesson


Dead people don’t make me uncomfortable. Usually. Would you eat lunch in a restaurant alongside dead people? That might be awkward. Well, maybe not if it was someone you knew, but it isn’t. Is a “cemetery restaurant” insensitive, icky, ingenious? I believe it may be greater than any of that. I was speechless when I […]

Distraction is a Lifestyle


Distraction is an official lifestyle. I haven’t heard anyone declare it’s their way of life, though. Why? We don’t hesitate to say we live green, military, vegan, alternative or a musician’s lifestyle. Heck, I’ll go first: No, I’m not vegan or green … I am into distraction, which, by the way, is a culturally acceptable […]

Save on Small Business Overhead


Me, and my husband, who’s my business partner, have been small business owners in distribution, sales, and service for 22 years now. I’ve learned a lot about keeping overhead expenses down. Many new small business owners spend money on unnecessary supplies, technology, and even office furnishings. Check out three ways I’ve painlessly cut or kept […]
