What do you do when a friend is hurting But won’t let you console her? What do you do when a friend is down But won’t let you help him smile? What do you do when a friend is hungry But won’t let you feed him? What do you do when a friend is thirsty… Continue reading What Do You Do?
So many things go into the quality of life we all enjoy in our various communities. The community itself looks to enhance the quality of life for its residents in attempts to keep people interested in living in the community. I have found that one item that really plays to quality of my life is… Continue reading Quality of Life
I am absolutely amazed as I head out the doors these days that a week ago my area had a dump of two feet of snow and now I can see the driveway down to the dirt and the lawn in areas. In a salute to the resilience of nature and of those of us… Continue reading The Beauty in The Day
I have always been a mover. I sit in church but my leg is bouncing or I am tapping my foot with the music. I sit at the computer to work and I move this way or that as I do my work. Even in the car, a passing driver is likely to see me… Continue reading Can You Hold Still?
This past Sunday I was still nursing a problem with my hip.

I have been to the first and second meetings of the Groton Photo Club. I really am loving taking pictures with people who know much more than I do and in a place I do not normally take pictures. You see, I am not from Groton but drive up for this event once a month.… Continue reading Greater Groton Photo Club

Here in upstate NY, I will be very happy when green replaces the brown – and, unfortunately, the occasional white – that is the outside right now. In honor of spring, I joined an ATC – Artist Trading Card – swap at… Continue reading Monochromatic ATC – Green
