I keep up this glamorous appearance until all vestiges of winter are [...]

I know that I won't be popular as I state this, but I love these last ditch efforts of Mother Nature to coat our world in white.  My view may be myopic as I enjoy the snow from my home and do not have to drive out in it.  My heart pours out to those [...]

There are so many inspiring people out there and so many inspiring stories.  I was driving to my first yoga class this morning and thinking about all the other people driving to wherever they had to be.  Which got me to thinking that many of them are also going to their place of work.  And [...]
