Remembering Newtown's Deaths

December 13, 2013

Here is an image of what you might imagine happens on a daily basis in our elementary schools. 

It is doubtful that you missed the headline news one year ago, on December 14, 2012, when a young man forever changed the lives of many families as well as an entire town in a way that still summens up strong feelings of anger and disbelief.

It's "Elder Wisdom Day" a.k.a. Thanksgiving

November 27, 2013

We have so much to learn from the "older" generation.  We have so much to learn from our parents. And Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday to sit down and have a conversation with your "elders" that are making the effort to travel across the nation, or from just around the corner, to join your family in the celebration of Thanksgiving, as well as Hanukkah, this year.

What The Philippines Learned The Hard Way

November 21, 2013

It is hard to get past the heartwrenching headlines and photographs to focus on life's ordinary and simple daily tasks such as laundry, cooking, cleaning and taking care of your children. Tragedies put lifes simple things forefront. I am grateful to have water coming out of the tap.Hurricane Sandy reeked havoc on homes, shorelines and unsuspecting infrastructure, with minimal, if any, loss of life. But the magnitude of the loss of lives in the Philippines is unfathomable.

What's On Your Bucket List?

November 15, 2013

Why is it that most people, when making a Bucket List of the things they wish to do, achieve, visit, explore, master, or dream about in their lifetimes, seem to wait until what seems to be the very last minute...as they approach the end of their chronological lives, rather than creating the Bucket List when  younger and when there is a greater possibility of time to complete goals and check off those lists?

Death Happens

November 1, 2013

As far as I know there are no more baseball games scheduled for Friday night, November 1, 2013.  I have something that I think you might find very interesting to watch on TV instead.

When a Child Dies

October 25, 2013

A child's death is certainly one of the saddest events to occur or even to think about.

A child's death is like no other death. The natural ebb and flow and order of life and death  we have come to expect in our lives is gone.

Grandparents are supposed to die before a grandchild.  Parents are not supposed to outlive their children.  Yet it happens.  And trying to make any sense of it is, quite frankly, just not possible.

Talk Early, Talk Often

October 18, 2013

Choosing to tackle difficult conversations regarding just about any topic seems to get parked on the back burner when people engage in conversations on a daily basis.  That certainly appears to be the case when one brings up the topic of death and dying.
