Karen Garvin I slowly approached the refrigerator and pulled the door open. The half-and-half was gone; I would have to drink my coffee black.
Karen Garvin I don't read a lot of romance but I suppose Robin Hood and Maid Marion would qualify as my favorite because I really like their backstories!…moreI don't read a lot of romance but I suppose Robin Hood and Maid Marion would qualify as my favorite because I really like their backstories!(less)

Running the Year

This year a friend invited me to the Run the Edge 2021 mile challenge. We set up a team of four people and I initially set a goal of 1,000 miles for myself. I’m not getting out much (who is?) but I do have a treadmill and a shiny new Peloton bike that arrived just … Continue reading →

George Bernard Shaw
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
W.H. Murray

Vikram Seth
“God save us from people who mean well.”
