I Think About Stuff

Writing helps me process a world that most days makes no sense. I believe in creating peace and choosing harmony.

Choices

Semper Fi

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.

Marine Mom

Horse Spirit

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

Horses

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

Captain’s Log

July 2014. I wanted to retire and throw out all the computers in my life and live off the land. I quit working for a company that did not need me anymore. I stopped writing and miss it.

August 2014. I decided to start a new company and teach myself some things I had been wanting to learn, like Reiki healing and Responsive web design. I stopped writing and miss it.

September 2014. My friend Donna came up with the name of my new business. I made 3 new websites and got some new client work. I stopped writing and miss it.

October 2014. I fell in love with a horse. I stopped writing and miss it.

November 2014. I hate the websites I made and have no time to maintain them. I decided to go back to my first website, which is this one. And start writing again.

December 2014. The holidays came. Who the hell has time to write in a blog? I did it all inside my head and pretended you saw all the posts.

January 2015. Happy New Year. I made one post and am writing one more. We're on a roll. I am writing again and I've missed it.

February 2015 Happy Valentines Day. I swapped out the WordPress template, tossed in some super gigantic photos to slow you down and actually wrote some new posts.

March 2015 I think everybody forgot me. Still playing with the layout. Every other Tuesday I hate the slider. Is anybody here

April 2015 My son came home from Marines boot camp on April 4. The horse I loved was sold on April 12. My son leaves for 2 months of more training on April 14. Everything has a date.
