Dear Friends, The air in my office is cool, product of the sunless days we have been having. I look around and find strange comfort in the "neat disorder" in which my writing area finds itself. I have not had a chance to make it tidy and neat because my week has been wonderfully blessed … Continue reading Great and Overdue!
Dear Friends, I woke up earlier than usual this morning because I had a full list of errands I wanted to get done before the rest of the family was up and about. Fortunately for me, my husband was awake even earlier. He had a nice, hot cup of coffee ready for me. My first … Continue reading Gallo Pinto and More!
Dear Friends, This morning I woke up thinking about how much I enjoy my Sundays. The day begins with fruit and coffee generously prepared by my husband whose internal alarm clock wakes him up naturally long before my external alarm begins its zealous appeal for me to rise! I have recently become aware that there … Continue reading Nature’s Rhythm Continues
Dear Friends, A new renewal Sunday is greeting us. Taking every precaution necessary, I invite you to get outside today and move your body with appreciation for all of Nature's gifts.

Dear Friends, It is a very warm morning in Atenas. I am writing in my office, the place I am constantly eluding because it has remained a challenge in my efforts to reduce, repurpose and recycle!

We all had a wonderful … Continue reading A Happy Day to All The Fathers!
Dear Friends, My husband opened the blinds very early this morning. There was no view. It was quiet and peaceful. A heavy fog blanketed the window. I couldn't recall ever noticing such low gray clouds. Though I could not see them, I knew that the gently sloping hills in the horizon and the gorgeous colors … Continue reading Global Wellness Day
Dear Friends, The sun is shining. I feel the warmth on my shoulders and close my eyes. A cool breeze brushes my arm and the roar of an airplane's engine reaches my ears.

Dear Friends, I begin my message today while listening to the roar of my neighbor's lawn mower. It has been going on for a couple of hours.

Dear Friends, I begin to write today's message after returning from a lovely, leisurely walk with our dog, Lila. She is usually at my feet when I am writing. This morning she was unsettled and kept pacing to the front door, signaling her desire to go out. Since it was early and I do enjoy movement, … Continue reading Good People, Good Air, Good Nourishment
