What do I want to do when I grow up?

I know that I’m not the only one. I know others suffer from this too. My problem? I’m in my mid-50’s and I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I'm not going through a major life-changing event or a mid-life crisis, I'm just trying to figure out how... Continue Reading →

Time’s a wastin’

The early bird gets the worm.  Time and tide wait for no man. Time is money.   Time flies. Okay you get the picture. I’m hyper sensitive to wasting time. I’m very much an achiever, I'm restless until I'm able to accomplish something -- both big and small goals -- each day. I need to be... Continue Reading →

A candle in the wind

I’m not much of a follower of the British Royalty. I've barely raised an eyebrow at Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee celebrations, which started in February, and I can’t tell you much about latest exploits of Prince William and Kate Middleton or Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s feud with the rest of the Royal Family.   To...

It’s a buzzer beater!

NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament fans watched in amazement over the weekend when Gonzaga University freshmen Galen Suggs took the ball with less than three seconds left in the game, dribbled just over half court and flung up a shot that hit the backboard and went in, winning the game and sending the Bulldogs to the...

Losing time and sleep!

I grew up in rural, farm country. I get the need for Daylight Saving Time (DST) — the practice of setting clocks forward by one hour in the spring and then back one hour in the fall, so that darkness falls at a later clock time — but its usefulness has come and gone.  Let's... Continue Reading →

Leaving the smartphone at home

I reached for my phone six times on my 40-minute drive to work. I picked up my jacket thinking it was in a pocket and then quickly put it back down, reminding myself each time that I would have to live without my phone for the day. Instead of listening to my favorite music on... Continue Reading →

Telling time

I splurged last night. I bought myself a new watch. It's a finely tuned quartz chronograph with Swiss components and is water resistant to 100 meters. Some people shop and collect clothes. I collect watches. (I should add that most of my watches are moderately priced ones within my limited budget.) In this day and... Continue Reading →

The years are short

I held my daughter close to my chest, tried to be as still as possible, and sang her one lullaby after another. I squinted my eyes trying my best to read my watch in the dark, but couldn’t see the numbers. I was frustrated and tired, but I needed to get my daughter to sleep,... Continue Reading →

I need a pause button

We’ve been able to come up with medical cures for diseases that hundreds of years ago were once considered fatal; we can collect mountains and mountains of information online now with a few clicks on a keyboard, tablet or smartphone that would’ve taken years to accumulate only a few decades ago; we have cars that...
