I had wanted to visit the Grand Canyon and experience the vastness of the place. I wanted to tune into its energy and feel the sacredness of time. Instead, I was entirely distracted by the hordes of loud people. We heard many languages, and the air of excitement […]
I love and live with lots of animals. I'm a believer in equality, spirituality, metaphysics, and a new perspective. See my blogs: peacewithmylife.com and DefiningOurReality.com or my business site, EmbersOfLife.com.
As a child, my favorite Christmas ornaments were birds. For some reason, I thought that birds belonged in trees and they were the perfect décor for a Christmas tree. As an adult, my tree sports keepsake ornaments from my husband’s family and a few gifts, but otherwise, our […]
Things are getting uncomfortable at my house. Jazz is recuperating following his second surgery in a few months to remove malignant melanomas. This surgery was harder on him the second time, and he had to spend the night in the hospital afterward. My husband and I visited […]
