This is first year that I did not have a first day of school. Rolled out of bed wearing an amber Billabong shirt that I got second hand at school clothing swap in February. I kept that shirt on all day, only changing my bottoms to yoga leggings. I sat working on my couch, conversing… Continue reading Back To School?
“Wouldn’t it be great if everyone reacted this way?” he asked. I nodded and burst into tears. The man talking to me, my friend, asked me this after his new dog put his head on my right foot and his upper body against my shin Thursday morning upon meeting the dog for the first time.… Continue reading Puppie 2.0
Some days there are no mistakes. There are some strange coincidences, though. People, usually with big, bright smiles on their faces, say, “Coincidences are God’s way of remaining anonymous.” How quaint. With that said, today while sitting in front of my computer, I clicked my mouse over my Chrome web browser toolbar by accident. Seemingly out… Continue reading Get a Helmet
Check out a piece I wrote for Sports of Boston on Stuart Scott. Rest in Peace, Stu. I still cannot believe this giant is not walking among us. Remembering Stuart Scott

I inhaled and exhaled to keep myself calm. I looked around taking in the scenery. There was a historic church there… Continue reading Barking Dog, Hidden Mindfulness
It is truly an amazing thing when someone sees something in you which you do not see in yourself. I am reminded from time to time of a professor that I had at Holy Cross. She passed away a couple years ago. Not unlike the other professors at Holy Cross she was a tour de… Continue reading You See Something in Me?
I have been having a lot of dreams lately, dreams that I remember and are particularly vivid. I wrote about this issue in a previous post. Sometimes they are fun, other times they are troubling, all because I seem to be remembering them. I have always dreamt, (or is it dreamed), but I was the… Continue reading I Dreamed A Dream…(and It Won’t Go Away)
My dear car, Lizzy, is in the shop for repair and tune up. I have had a rental for a week and it is a Toyota Prius. I jumped at the chance to go with this rental company because they had a Toyota. I thought that would be a good thing. I thought great, I’ll… Continue reading A Prius Experience
