The Third Trimester of Living

This is 60 I recently turned 60, hard to believe, but as I enter my golden years or silver ones to match the evolving color of my hair, figuring out who I am and what should I be doing for the rest of my life has taken on a new meaning. You see, I never…

What’s your passion?

Living the dream! Do you live passionately? Are you doing what you want to do or have you settled for something less? Each day is an opportunity to work towards our dreams & achieve outstanding goals, do you pursue yours? Endless Education No excuses, just action. I know many who thought they could never achieve…

Embracing the future

As days pass & months turn into years, the forward movement of time seems to catch us all by surprise. Our once high energy toddlers are graduating high school, then college while weddings, babies & new homes are the norm. This new norm however, isn't for us, but it is for the 'younger' generation that…

School is out

Today is the last day of school in Naples.  The end of another year in what seems like the blink of an eye.  I always look forward to the end of school almost as much as the kids do because it means 'free time'.  Summer is the time to do a lot of nothing.  I…

Christmas Blizzard 2010

Mother nature has obviously flexed her muscle and shown us all who is boss.  The blizzard and cold weather that has gripped the country is a reminder that even with the best laid plans, you plan and God laughs!  Some say the timing is terrible with the holidays here and people traveling, but is there…

Christmas Magic

The arctic blast that has enveloped most of the country has turned sunny south Florida into a frigid zone.  Waking up to a 39 degree temperature is not something you think will happen when you live down south, yet even Florida is fighting the cold and it is another year of freeze warnings and watching…

Divorce and the Holidays

Life is very interesting.  We all plan our futures and God laughs when he throws us a curveball.  Change is something that most of us want nothing to do with as it makes us uncomfortable, yet it happens each and everyday.  We never notice it because usually the change is slight and happens over time,…
