Cooking con Omi –

Check out my latest conversations with Omi from Cooking with Omi. During quarantine there were a few "accidental influencers" on Instagram and Omi from Cooking con Omi is one of them! She is talented, gifted, and full of life. Her ode to her culture and her home-cooked meals make each post entertaining, informative, and educational.... Continue Reading →

Decisions…

If you are anything like me…you are a list maker. I have a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly list. It might be my OCD…yeah, I can admit that. And like anyone else, I had goals and plans for things to do this year! BUT guess what!  I might have checked off one major item and... Continue Reading →

Digital Fatigue…

Several days ago I was asked to join some girlfriends on Zoom to "just talk" and I took a hard pass. I thought I'd never say this, but I am officially experiencing digital fatigue. Everything that I must access is currently found on the Information Highway otherwise known as the Internet. Internet use to be... Continue Reading →

Seek Therapy

Six months of quarantine exposed a million little cracks that, if left unattended, would shatter...it would shatter our family. Awkwardly sitting together in our first virtual session... Family therapy. Looking at a screen trying to communicate why we are here. How did we get here? It was grueling! It required us to hear words spoken of... Continue Reading →

I dare to hope!

It is... Continue Reading →

One theme seems to run through all of the conversations...be teachable.  Each one of them imparted some small nugget that left me filled, thinking, and challenged. I... Continue Reading →

The past few weeks I have sat in several conversations where someone said, “I need to let it go” or “I’m letting it go”... it struck me that there is a marked difference in these words along with their actions and all I kept thinking was "save yourself." "Letting go,” is a slow and sometimes... Continue Reading →

Who do you follow…and why?

  In this era of social media overload, we find complete strangers asking us to follow them ...and we do!!! They ask us to like, comment, share, follow! Heck! I’m one of them too! We have a society that is entirely voyeuristic but not engaged with one another. We spend hours, really think about it,... Continue Reading →

Words matter…all the time!

I love you, I hate you. Go away, please stay.  You are amazing, you are ugly. You are a failure, you are brilliant.  Hello, Goodbye.  Will you marry me?  She's gone.  You failed, you passed.  Go to Hell, God is Love. It's a boy, I am sorry for your loss. These are words I have... Continue Reading →
