I didn't feel the euphoria this time. Although by all accounts, the dance camp was a huge success, I was almost detached by the time it ended. In truth, while being very involved all weekend long, I also observed what was going on with myself ... Read more

Don't you just love it when people write well thought out blogs? Well, this isn't one of them. Lots of things are nagging at me, and I just need to put them out there. Perhaps if I do so they will be gone. My ankle suddenly started hurti... Read more

Wow, what a weekend so far. I had to drive to the camp where I'm holding my dance camp in two weeks in order to take a look at the new accommodations they've built so I can decide where to hold various events. Plus I need to figure out how... Read more

tch/?id=6116827n I'm sick and tired of feeling sick and tired because I get no sleep. Sophie and every other dog in the neighborhood want to get out there, and the creature growls and hisses off... Read more

I've seen my fair share of medical professionals in my 60 years, and I'm finally starting to feel that I'm in tune with where medicine is headed. Don't get me wrong, if there were a magic pill for anything, I'd be the first in line. But I'... Read more

that running would make me so hungry or that it would turn out to be so expensive! Well, I'm only guessing that it's the running that's increased my appetite. It could be one of the other culprits, like stress, anxiety, or boredom. Except... Read more

Browsing through today's blogs reminded me that, indeed, a quarter of the year is almost done. So what do I have to show for it? I'm achieving my first goal of being a runner. I'm there, not that it's an end in itself. The whole point is... Read more

Maybe not everybody's cup of tea, but I'm looking forward to it. Early to bed and early to rise: up before the crack of dawn on Saturday to take a friend to the airport and to get to my 5k by 7 am. Let's hope there's sushi at the finish l... Read more

This is what I was always told when I was growing up. When I was little, I didn't need to wonder because I was told whether or not I was OK, and more often than not I heard about it when I wasn't OK. But the message was clear that others had... Read more
