Writing Letters Doesn’t Solve Anything Nor Does Continuing To Take Flack

It’s been an interest of mine as to why people do the things that they do. Most of it comes through their own imagined issues with someone else, several others and, or through or with someone else’s help. In other words, they see what they want to see instead of what’s really there and whatContinue reading “Writing Letters Doesn’t Solve Anything Nor Does Continuing To Take Flack”

My Deceased Brother’s Still Playing Pranks On Me And Loving It

Today would have been my deceased brother’s 62nd birthday. I’ve wished him a happy birthday out of habit. We were close both in age as well as in friends, schools, thoughts and saw each other through so much in life so, it only seemed fitting for me and my husband (his brother-in-law) to wish himContinue reading “My Deceased Brother’s Still Playing Pranks On Me And Loving It”

What Do Parents Do When Estranged From

It’s not that I have all good days and am completely over it but, estrangement is much like a punishment to parents by their offspring.

No One Is Invincible No Matter What Is Believed

You are not invincible and the world is not your oyster. There, it’s been said, loudly, plainly and without age, race, creed or religion added in.

How Much Is Not Enough

Please Note that this piece is NOT about estrangement though it can pertain to that if it’s happening to you. It hasn’t with me. It’s not that text messages aren’t worth making.

What Is It Going To Take For People To Get The Message With Covid-19

Is it going to take a mountain of tickets on your mail shelves for you to say, “can’t even pay my rent so, these tickets are going to be pushed aside too?” Is it going to take a total and complete “STAY INSIDE WITH NO VISITORS” order, instead of suggesting it? Is it going toContinue reading “What Is It Going To Take For People To Get The Message With Covid-19”

Covid-19 Makes Kids More Powerful

Being afraid of something and not fearing anything may sound like opposite ends of the spectrum but, they’re actually part of the same one. How can that be? While the entire world (or most of it) fight to level off the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have young people out on beaches, complaining that the virus hasContinue reading “Covid-19 Makes Kids More Powerful”
