What labels do you wear? Many years ago, I was an elementary school teacher. I taught a wonderful class of second graders. Each day, I felt inspired and truly loved my work. In this particular class, I had a student named Jan. He came from a family of 8 children. To say the least, hisContinue reading “What labels do you wear?”

Put your snuggy on!
This is for all of you who are out enjoy the sunshine. Soaking in the beauty that the day has to offer. Lazy days of Sunday… tomorrow we work!
A lazy summer day to find inspiration!
“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” J.K Rowling In the last few days, I have been in my own world… relaxing and being totally lazy! Lazy is a word I secretly hate and often project onto others. Heck, NOT me! But, I can be a lazyContinue reading “A lazy summer day to find inspiration!”
We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. Sam Keen This quote I saw on my daughter’s blog. Decided to share it here. I am curious — Gentlemen: What do you look for in a person you love? Ladies: What do you look forContinue reading “Imperfectly loved”
Secret in the Garden
“One’s action ought to come out of an achieved stillness: not to be mere rushing on.” D.H. Lawrence For the last few days, I have been walking in parks, riding my bike, listening to the birds and appreciating the chirping of the cicadas (this used to annoy me!). Sometimes, I found myself feeling a deepContinue reading “Secret in the Garden”

I was really resisting the pain. It went on and on… and finally the result was my boyfriend draggingContinue reading “Just what the doctor ordered: A day of nothing but rest!”
I think, I think too much!
Many, many years ago… too many to say, I dated a boy named Don. He lived about 200 km away from me in Canada. We talked lots on the phone, wrote letters and saw each other on occasion. I worried about lots! What is he doing when I am not there? Will we last?Continue reading “I think, I think too much!”
What makes a good dinner?
Last night, I had a fabulous dinner with three courses and desert, some good wine and delightful conversation. Such a romantic evening! Here in France, dinner is typically not served until later in the evening; it is very common to eat around 8 or even 9 pm. In North America, that would be considerContinue reading “What makes a good dinner?”
Jet Lag is an amazing feeling. I thought I would be lag proof but NON! Last night during dinner- I almost feel asleep; during the watching of a fabulous tennis match- ditto! I have never awaited my bed like like last night. So now this morning I am much more alert. Plan to get outContinue reading “jet lag”
Today, I leave for France! This is an extremely long day flying from the mid-west to New York to Paris to Montpellier, France! It is a trip that is so familiar now. I love to go! France, now feels like my second home. I will be in the South of France for the next 6Continue reading “Bon Voyage!”
