The Rules

Day 75 “Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.” – Albert Einstein I’ve been trying to write a bunch of Diamond Girl series posts for the last several days. I’ve written 4 drafts, they are well written, have a lot of colorful detail, and will keep you at the edge of your seat, but IContinue reading “The Rules”

Generation Gap

Day 73 “Sometimes we look back and 10 years from now we think, ‘Boy, those were great old days.’ Well, you know, we’re living in the good old days.” – Joel Osteen I caught up on the last episode of American Crime Story: The People v.

Born To Be Wild

Day 71 “To really be free, You need to be free in the mind.” – Alexander Loutsis With thoughts of what we can learn from animals still fresh in my mind from yesterday’s post, I watched Ippa explore today.

Peppers & Prunes

Day 33 “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer Yesterday, I spent a lot of hours working on my site to get Feed Street up and running so I could slow down a bit once it was in place. And that’s exactly what I did today.Continue reading “Peppers & Prunes”

Exposure

Day 13 Today is lucky 13. It’s the day I win the biggest lottery jackpot in history. My grandmother would have turned 105 today. $1.5 billion. Synchronicity.
