It was a somewhat painful week on the nature trails with many close calls. Amazingly I performed moves I didn’t know my body was capable of saving myself from falling to the ground after losing my balance on a hill while capturing my first flower photos of the season.

Too bad introverts don’t hang out together more often because then I might have discovered prior to this week that there is a National Introverts Week.

It’s that time of year to hope that Santa has received my Christmas letter wishing for a cool Yellowstone T-shirt from…

With the changing seasons, shorter days and ongoing pandemic, I’ve been thinking about the topic of adjustment this week and, it’s official, my adjustment meter has broken! After what feels like a record-setting decade of adjustment, the broken adjustment meter has led to an effort to embrace a mindset of choosing to accept and let…

I’m not sure if it’s due to tv commercials or the billions of TikTok dance videos out there, but some days I feel a little left out that I’m not dancing while I cook, walk the trails or when I’m feeling “Fancy Like” Applebees. Amazingly this week, I could join the dancers of the world…
