The feelings that inspired me to write my most recent song “Someone To Love You,” continue to reverberate throughout my life. The title of this post is from that song. I haven’t written anything of a personal nature in awhile, and will tread lightly here because I do want to share about my current life. I have to balance my honesty without revealing too many personal details that might upset my children. Continue reading
What I am about to write will be brutally honest, almost to a point of being embarrassing for me. Yet if there is anything that I have learned from this blog, opening up has been the purest form of healing for me. I am not afraid. Continue reading
When noise became music, my life completely transformed. Gradually, each one of my other five senses were elevated. But in order to elevate my other senses, I had to come to terms with avoiding pain and sad memories. I was required to make changes to my life. And that’s exactly what I did. Continue reading
My father’s life revolved around his nurses. When he felt his nurse was attentive, he had a good day. When I came to visit him, he would sometimes say to me, “I had such a great nurse whom I wish you could meet!” He told me most mornings were quite difficult because he had a nurse who was all business.

But then, the revelation came to me after I corresponded last night with my dear friend, Magda, who suffers terribly from the progression of MS. Continue reading
For many years, humor was absent from my life. As I’ve healed from grief, I’ve learned how humor is a wonderful, coping mechanism. With my transformation last year, I‘ve found that even when I’m sad I still see so many things to laugh about every day. When I first began my blog, I often wrote about my daily life in a humorous way. It’s gotten harder for me to do that since my children don’t want me to write anything about them anymore. That has left me with only my pets to write about!
