The Internet swung open the doors to global conversations and knowledge share. Opportunities for creating peace are boundless.

My son's journey as he trains to become a Marine ready to serve his country has me in tears some days, heart pain on others and always absolute pride.

Thirty years after my last ride I reconnected with my childhood riding trainer and a new adventure began.

Fear, Anger and Hatred: A Day in a Life on Facebook

Person holding back a giant rok.
 

 Every day, about 20 times per day, I tell myself I HAVE to quit Facebook.  My husband did that awhile ago and thinks I’m crazy to still use it. I tell myself I “need” it for the work I do.  Somewhere in that statement is an opportunity for a therapist to fix me. I was […]

Why I Choose To Wear Leggings And Whatever I Want

 When a Christian woman claims she can’t wear leggings because it turns men on and dishonors her husband, I need to speak up for the other women on the planet who use the brains God gave us. I won’t justify the article with a link to it.  It is written by a woman referring to herself […]

Please Don’t Call Me a Rockstar

Single rose
 

 My first gut reaction when I see someone called a “Rockstar” in the online marketing and web design industries is to move on to something of substance. I realize that most successful online marketers have egos the size of Mount Everest and prefer to associate with members of their own kind.  Not belonging to their […]

Marine Mom – Care and Feeding Your Recruit

Son and mom
 

 Marine mom sleep is like having a newborn at home, where you wake every few hours to feed your child and cuddle. The other night at about 3am I distinctly heard my son call out, “Mom!” as if he was in his bedroom right down the hallway.  For the next 10 minutes I analyzed the […]

Window Altars and Training a Marine Mom

honor2
 

 They, the kind folks who run the U.S. Marines, make sure Marine mothers know exactly what their kid is doing everyday at boot camp. This is week one and I’m scared to death. Okay, not really.  Stefan has prepared for this journey since he was in the third grade.  I was in denial until he was […]

Get Back on The Horse

Rally in ring
 

 I was never a brave horse rider in my mind because for starters, once a fence went higher than 4 feet high, I lost my nerve to try and convince a horse to jump over it with me on its back. When I was a teenager I was given a gray gelding named Nelson.  When […]

Marine Mom – Day One

Hatboro Marines and Navy
 

 We drove Stefan to the Marine and Air Force recruiting office in Hatboro, PA because his recruiter person had a sudden death in the family and was unable to provide transportation for my son, one of his recruits. I know “recruiter person” is not the official term but I’m still getting the hang of Marines […]

Dream Horse

Horse face
 

 Everytime I closed my eyes, I saw his face looking at me. Even after the week when I first met him, he would appear in my dreams and when I awoke his dark nose with the jagged white stripe running down towards his soft muzzle was there staring back at me. I grew up with […]
