Belated International Women’s Day!

I meant to have this posted on International Women’s Day, but editing and work prolonged it. Why can’t this holiday be recognized and celebrated every day? The first hero would be my mother. She helped raise me, despite challenges, and she loved me unconditionally. I have learned to appreciate all she did for me even […]

Book Review: Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology

Hiking the Flatlands

Most of my hiking and backpacking has been in the Smokey and Blue Ridge Mountains, because they are simply beautiful. However, I have made it a goal to explore more of the Florida trails, and other flatlands. Maybe I will wait until fall and winter, as summer in Florida is just painful to do lengthy […]

Be You

Because an abundant amount of words aren’t always necessary. Don’t be ashamed, or hide. Be you. It is different when I tell you this than when you try to convince yourself. I can’t, nor anyone else, persuade you that your flaw, whatever it may be, is what makes you intriguing, unique, and beautiful.


I like watching movies as I do reading books that affect me, because I learn about other people through the portrayal of characters and their stories. Emotionally, people respond to fiction, as they see the characters, story, and the fictional world as something they have experienced in the real world. Also, I watch and read […]
