Where were you on 9/11?

14 years have passed…my life has changed quite a bit since I posted this last, but my memories of that day have not.  I still look at planes differently. I still think differently when I cross the street, wondering if the worst will happen. I’ve ditched most of the news addiction…and for me and my… Continue reading Where were you on 9/11?

Mindful and Meditative Mondays #16 – Maybe I need a different kind of shovel…

I’ve thought a lot lately about why I’ve not quite yet achieved certain things I would like to achieve, and I realized it comes down to this. I’m anxious and scared.
