America: A Land of Diversity

Last week, we just returned from a nine day motorcycle trip from Minnesota to Colorado. Leaving Minnesota, we entered the farmlands of Iowa that spread out before us for miles and miles. We then moved across Nebraska from cities into the vast prairie lands where towns were few and far between. As we entered Colorado,… Read More

Living With Hope

This morning’s energy around our home was feeling totally crazy with our little Hope-puppy, who was flying from room to room, grabbing whatever she could with her mouth. She was ready to play hard and fast,  and it was absolute chaos because she was not listening, in total puppy ADHD mode. I have to admit, I lost… Read More

Grief in the Workplace

My talk was about how grief is a significant component for those who have been injured from a workplace accident. The talk went very well and I saw many… Read More

Promoting One’s Self Without Ego

This is the week where I am going to officially launch my book. I have scheduled two book signings for the  week, one in July, and another on August 1st. Getting to this point over the past several weeks has placed me well outside of my comfort zone, because I needed to be promoting myself a… Read More

Airline Connections

Last Thursday, my husband and I were flying home after visiting his parents in Arizona for a few days. Traveling on Southwest Airlines is a grab your own seat kind of flight with no assigned seating.
