    What can you do in 100 days?
    Beginning my year with plenty of goals was powerful, and I would highly recommend its course. My goal list included, personal improvement goals, life goals and of course, writing. I was learning, getting stronger and following through for myself...

    Grief...  (Guilt, Regret, Ignorance, Envy, Forgiveness)
    Since the loss of my mother I have been taken by grief. Captured as if a monster once lurking, returned. Grief pulls me under angrily and I wonder if it had ever left my side. All this loss in one lifetime, how can grief depart? Life...

    After looking through a few sites for goal setting advice I created this list to focus on specific areas of improvement. Is there...

    On January 7, fifteen-years will have magically passed since I quit smoking and transformed my life, by deciding to change one thing.
    I remember grappling with resolutions. Knowing I should quit smoking yet not quite committed. Choosing quit dates, then finding a reason not to follow through. Now the New Year was fast approaching and I extended my quit date to February. 
    February 7, I thought,...

    "Find joy in the ordinary"
    What brought you Joy: Week 22
    After many visits to California, one of my favorite novelties while visiting is the simple joy in bird watching outside my Aunts window. With several feeders around the yard, the birds gather creating flutters of happiness as an array of creatures come to visit, or perhaps just to eat.
    These visits prompted the idea for more feeders in...
