Saturday, September 22, 2018      22 comments

My friend was amazed that I had so much less than I have had in the past. Still more than most of you would have had, but a lot more restraint this time. It was fabulous. Since I am getting a lot of exercise these days, I'm not worried. ... Read more

Wednesday, September 19, 2018      20 comments

I've Tried Again and Again, but Still don't like Tai Chi
Friday, September 07, 2018      20 comments

Why do I keep trying to make tai chi an acquired taste? I've tried it 4 different times, forcing myself to go to class as I'm always reading how beneficial it is. No matter how I try, it's just not for me. I'll stick to activities I enjoy... Read more

Sunday, August 26, 2018      18 comments

Sadly, for various reasons, I've never had a dog of my own. However, my daily walks have brought me in contact with an abundance of canine friends I see regularly and visit with briefly along my paths. All sizes, shapes, breeds, they are delig... Read more

I Inadvertently Stalled-Out the Healing Process
Thursday, August 23, 2018      17 comments
