Thank you for dropping in.

Scroll around in my cyber world. Something makes you smile or brings a memory or idea to the front of your mind, please tell me about it. That’s why we’re here. To share.

I’ll be posting new photos and ideas. Please come back from time to time — just say ‘Hi’ or add bits of wisdom to the topic of the day.

And, if you’re looking for something to do, I write books, too. Check them out. I’ll be adding a ‘Books in Progress’ page soon. Comments and critiques are always welcome.

Go to my Blog and see what new or memory lanes we’re traveling today.

Every day is a new adventure

When we wake up and look into the mirror we need to say to our reflection, “I’ll make it a good day. I’ll look for and make things to smile about.”


Each morning I take my ‘walk around’ in the yard, wearing funky little garden shoes and carrying my colorful coffee cup (my companions who make me smile). I always say a little prayer, “Thank you, God, for another day in this beautiful world.” (Even when it’s raining and snowing and cold, it’s still beautiful.)


And as I talk to the flowers (even the dormant one’s in winter) I remind myself: Sometimes life challenges are tough but don’t give up. Failure just means we persevere and change our path. Reaching for personal goals and dreams is what fills our soul and makes us smile. It’s what we are.
