Most all these comments are way too close for comfort! It has been said that “no one escapes childhood unscathed.” But sayings like these can have an especially significant meaning for a person who has experienced emotional abuse as a child. The effects of emotional abuse can be both debilitating and far-reaching, often extending out …

Nashville

Next week I’m going to a conference in Nashville for one of my jobs.  The last time – actually the only other time – I was there, it was for a Cushing’s Conference. There are two albums of photos on Facebook from that conference.  Part one and Part two (Duh!) It makes me sad just …

It All Started With a Train

I was reading this great article at https://www.thrillist.com/travel/nation/best-scenic-train-rides-us?wpsrc=thrillist and saw that the header image was a train we were on in 2007, the White Pass & Yukon Route out of Skagway, Alaska. The Thrillist folks said “As you cruise along the side of frighteningly sheer cliff-drops on this narrow-gauge railway, you can’t help but wonder who in …

Also on January 13…

Today, January 13, holds a couple anniversaries for me.  I remember the day of the Air Florida Flight 90 Crash in 1982 so well. We were living in the Metro DC area and our young son had just turned 2 in December.  Tom, my DH, worked in DC and I was never sure the route that …

    I originally wrote this on 9/11/01… I, too, was stunned to hear the news this morning and continuing throughout the day. It was just something unbelievable.  My husband and I were on a Land Rover 4X4 tour of the off-road areas of Barbados when we first got the news. At first, when we …

Goose

  I don’t know why geese fascinate me but they have for years.  I love how the father stands watch over the family-to-be and when they’re crossing the street – mom in front, babies, then dad. Lately, I’ve been seeing goose families everywhere. When I went to an appointment last week, I noticed a goose …

Tartan History

Seems like I still have Scotland on the brain since we went last summer and we have plans to go again the summer of 2016.  Several of the gifts I’m giving this Christmas are Scottish-based so…   According to A History of Tartan: Chaotic yet orderly, clashingly exuberant, tartan’s history jumble fact with outrageous fiction. …

Veteran’s Day

  I’m not sure how Veterans Day turned into a day to sell stuff, but then, most every holiday has turned into a day for stores to run “sales”. Veterans Day is supposed to be a day to thank those who have served. From the Constitution: Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation …
