Like election promises, we hear what's convenient Coming out of this (maybe) pandemic nightmare, I believe, is going to leave some unexpected "long hauler" effects on a society in general.

"There's a moment where you have to choose whether to be silent or stand up" - Malala Yousafzai I have spent the last 4 months running from pillar to post with little direction, teetering on the edge of frustration continually, constantly researching the continual flow of misinformation (in so many areas) while, in reality, accomplishing … Continue reading Busy With Purpose
I have been gone and thought my days of posting my thoughts were behind me. It has taken a pandemic to come to the realization that I am not ready to stop posting the garbled garbage of my thoughts yet. I thought I was ready to stop posting but didn't want to stop writing.

All indications are not … Continue reading Cracks in the Mirror
I have just finished week 7 of the COVID19 life-style and I'm starting to run on fumes. The fight is draining out of me. I feel like I'm trapped on a carousel of an ever changing cycle of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, five stages of grief. However just as you think you have worked through one, a … Continue reading Running On Fumes
Your complacency is killing me! I use to wake up in the morning looking forward to my coffee, blueberry bagel, check my news feeds and follow-up with my social media requests. I'm a news junkie, I don't deny that but I am dealing with an increasing number of friends and relatives who don't want to … Continue reading Are You Paying Attention?
