Mama and Her Chocolate Box of Valentines

I am in awe of those that marry and stay together until they depart this earth. They are held together like the old glue that was used on those cards. They forge memories and their lives become intertwined into one.

Boomers Are Booming

People over 50 are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. The Small Business Administration research shows that 2% of millennials are self-employed versus 8.3% for boomers. So boomers are actually driving the entrepreneurial boom.

The Search for Magic, Miracles, and Meaning

When I had lost all of my data, photos, and memories when my computers crashed before, it was like starting over and being forced to let go of the past and the details I deemed so important.

Nana and Her Smart Phone Are Digging the Scene

I rarely, rarely comment on our son’s posts. Okay, I break that rule all the time. Last night our son went to see Apocalyptica in Washington, D.C., so I commented on the picture he posted. Do I know Apocalyptica from a hole in the ground? No, but the venue was beautiful.

Phase Three

Your Seasonal Senses Will Tell You the Most

Halloween is somewhat quickly followed by Election Day, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving – a series of holidays that as you get older usually trigger what I call the three R's: Remembrances, Regrets and Reflection.
