Marching On

The days are racing by so quickly; I feel disoriented.  I just don’t have enough time for everything.  While I long for the evening when I can crawl into my comfy bed, it always comes too soon with too many things left undone. It’s an interesting time in my life.  I’m gratefully watching my daughters grow into beautiful young adults and reluctantly acknowledging my … Read More Marching On


Today was a wild ride. My senses were on high alert, and every cell in my body was alive and dancing.  I could feel the energy pounding everywhere – from my fingertips to the back of my neck to… yeah, well, everywhere. It was a crazy sensation that left me breathless and dizzy. Far beyond a typical hormone-rage that escalates my sex drive, this … Read More Intoxicated

I’m lost in a world of unspeakable joy. I want so much to tell the story – to clearly describe this transformation and my experience … Read More Safe and Sound

And behind the candy-crushing fun lies a calmness and contentment that I don’t think … Read More Sugar Crush

Body Rock

Yesterday’s race, combined with this morning’s long run, left me crippled this afternoon.  I have soreness everywhere – in places I didn’t know could get sore from running.  Thank god I had a massage scheduled with my preferred therapist, who spent 90 minutes rubbing and stretching my legs out.  I’d hate to think how I’d be if I hadn’t had that little luxury today. … Read More Body Rock
