Stop Covering Trump

July 29, 2020

What would happen if we stopped giving Mr. Trump news coverage? Could we find other events to cover in the news that would be more informative and reliable? How would Mr. Trump respond if he had little to no news coverage? I would love to hear about that tantrum. Do any of you have thoughts […]

Proximacy is the new Intimacy

March 25, 2020

Proximacy is the new Intimacy. Our COVID-19 shutdown response is creating a desire to get closer to people simply because we can’t.

Regrets

March 13, 2020

“Regrets, I’ve had a fewbut then, again, too few to mention” How many times and from how many people have you heard these regrets: I wish I hadn’t worked so much I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends I wish I had […]

Ages and Birthdays

May 31, 2019

When I was younger, in my 50’s, I got to thinking about my age and, more importantly, my remaining Birthdays. There were fewer remaining than I had already had. Even though this is a sobering thought, that didn’t mean that I stopped drinking OR living but I still want to do SOMETHING to commemorate my […]
