I don't know about you, but I tend to hibernate during the colder winter months, especially in January. After Christmas I cut back on extra activities and gather good books around me, a blanket, and a hot beverage. I have a wonderful library full of books to keep me company.

I started reading Their Eyes Were Watching God for a 6-hour plane ride. The first 3 hours, I got a good start on the book…but by the next three, I was coming in and out of sleep. I was on the red-eye flight.

Besides holiday eggnog, I've developed an "over do it" problem with Dresden porcelain angels. Long ago, my niece's mom gave me a set of seven. Each angel played either a violin, horn, lute, harp, base or cymbals, and there was a conductor too.

Over many years, the angels have broken a wing, or els... Read more of this blog post »

It happened during the day

Revenge was sweet, but not sweet enough.

It wasn't enough to make his brother suffer over and over again. That didn't bring Alayna back and that was all he really wanted.

But since he couldn't have that Mekhi was going to enjoy every second of torturing Damian and then he was going to move on to... Read more of this blog post »

If you own a brand, work with a brand or align with a brand, consistency is key in social interactions as well as business. I know this seems obvious but I’ve seen things go “out of alignment” in social environments.

This can play out very simply. For example,  I just had a house concert with over...
