I’m Melting

So today I sat outside with a couple of friends for lunch. We are having a warm snap and anyone who lives in Northeast Ohio knows that you have to absorb as much sunlight as you can before the winter trundles in and stays for way too long. But today we sat outside and the sun... Continue Reading →

Had a Psycho Experience

When my mother was little, Alfred Hitchcock's movie, Psycho, came out in movie theaters. My mom begged to see it, but my grandmother (a very smart woman) told her no. Did my mom listen? Nooooo. So she walked uptown to the movie theater with her friends and went to the movie (now that I think of it, there... Continue Reading →

What do I mean?  Well many of you have been following me since my Golden Heart ® final and subsequent win and it was an awesome, action-packed few months. Now I am sending out my manuscripts(s) and looking for... Continue Reading →

Tonight, I'm going to talk about my other cat, Maggie. She is a sweet little calico who lets her brother think he rules the... Continue Reading →

Because I Said So!

Not one of us growing up missed hearing at one point or another "Because I Said So!" (or BISS for short). At some point when our parents told us to do something (or not do something) we asked one too many times - Why? And we were rewarded with the tried and true BISS.Now if you... Continue Reading →

The Path of Least Resistance

It's Friday night and I am sitting out on my front porch (more like a stoop, but it is big enough for my white rocking chair which I am perched in).
