I had a 10:30 AM appointment this morning & it's 3:00 PM & I'm still not finished. I went for a pain in my side from a fall. She sent me for a CT scan for kidney cancer! She said "If it is, it's no big deal. We just take the kidney out." Now I h... Read more

I've always been what Bruce Springsteen called himself, "A thinking fool." I over think everything to the point of being paralyzed into not acting on anything. It's a personality trait I was born with. After reading & rereading The Slow Down ... Read more

i've finally made the leap to be an active member. Partly the wake up call of having my contract non renewed as a high school librarian, "my dream job." I did not put my all into it so I'm sad, but not completely surprised. Now I will go back in... Read more
