Not Dead Yet…

How easy to have a routine derailed. How near impossible to return to the tracks. But so much has happened over the last few months, it’s hard to keep it straight. Not to mention near impossible to figure out where to start.


EgyptAir Flight MS804 went down over the Mediterranean.

My husband was injured in a work-related vehicle accident.

I had a terrible sinus infection that required antibiotics.


A horrific massacre happened at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

A suicide bombing killed dozens at the airport in Istanbul, Turkey.

Terrorists slaughtered guests at a hotel in Mogadishu, Somalia.

Roan was diagnosed with cancer and made his journey across the Rainbow Bridge.


Five police officers were gunned down in Dallas, Texas.

A celebration for Bastille Day in Nice, France turned into a bloody nightmare.

Diners and shoppers in Munich, Germany fell to a shooting rampage.

The controversial killing of yet another unarmed black man sparked the “retaliatory” murders of three police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.


Suicide bombers shred a wedding in Gaziantep, Turkey.

The American University of Afghanistan in Kabul endures a nine-hour siege.

Flooding of Biblical proportions swamps Louisiana.

Blue Windows

The word Blue brings many things to mind. The most obvious is the color- of sky and water. Some believe it to be calming and able to keep bad spirits away. Blue is also a state of mind, a sweet sort of sadness that may surface at any time. One may think of music, the sullen, soft sound of the blues. I am Blue - all of these things. Calm and peaceful, stormy, deeply emotional, sullen, sad and often sweet.
