Music Heals

If you’ve been around here for a while you know how much I love music. I’ve written about it and its healing powers often. During my divorce, music was a big part of my life. I used it to relax, (Sarah MacLauchlan), to party (Dave Matthews Band), to paint (Chopin) and to reminisce (anything from the 80’s). So, music is a big deal to me—always has been, always will be.

A Look Back, 2015 At The Great Escape

a look back, 2015 I recently saw a post where the host, in review of her site, took the first post of each month of 2015 to look back on the year. I thought that was a fun way to summarize the year on a blog. I’m sorry I don’t have the name of her site…

2015 was an eventful year for me personally as well as here at the blog. One of the things that stands out in my mind is my attempt to take the “Year Of Happy” course. It was a fail. Not that I wasn’t happy in 2015 but around four Continue reading “A Look Back, 2015 At The Great Escape”

10 Things I Learned On Blog Break

I have an important question for you
If Jane Austen blogged

I’ve missed you, dear Escapees! So, you may have noticed I’ve been gone for a month. At least, I hope you have 🙂 and you know what? I’ve been doing relaxing stuff; eating juicy peaches, smelling the roses, walking on the beach, seeing my kids, loving summer like it’s my last one. But now it’s time to get back to routine. Do you feel it, too? The fresh, cooler air blowing in, the golden hue to the early morning sunlight? It’s all telling me it’s time to go back….maybe not back to school but back to work and all that entails—writing and blogging! Continue reading “10 Things I Learned On Blog Break”

Summer Hiatus

It’s that time. Time for a summer break. I’ll be taking the month of August off from blogging. I’ll still be around the social media a bit and hope to visit some blogs while on break. If you don’t see me though, don’t worry as I’m likely at my favorite coffee house with manuscript and coffee in hand. I’ll be working on some other projects and hoping Continue reading “Summer Hiatus”

For almost four years I’ve been doing the talking…turning my thoughts inside out…attempting to be funny…providing useless valuable tips. I love it.

Think Twice

What's Inspiring You?

What's Inspiring You?I wrote this piece last Spring but have never published it until now. I was moved and inspired by a video made by The New York City Rescue Mission.

With the #1000VoicesSpeakforCompassion movement started by Lizzi Rogers over at Considerings-Life In Silver Linings, I thought now is the perfect time to share it.

It’s not so much about other people’s compassion as it is about my own, that I believe was lacking in the past and still today.  It’s about the homeless. It’s also about my own experience and my learned reaction to people on the street. I have a long way to go to be Continue reading “Think Twice”
