Thursday, July 31, 2014



The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.

He is frustrated by not being able to do things like take his own medication without getting confused. Very hard for both of them-and for me to realize it is now time to start shifting gears into the parent/caregiver role.

My Morning Cup Of Solitude

Tuesday, July 29, 2014



One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon,instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.
