See ya 2014

Time to say good-bye to 2014. Almost everything that could have happened did happen. Well yes that's an exaggeration, but it was a roller coaster ride of a year. The year started with an escape from frigid Wisconsin, as we arrived back in the desert warmth in February. Valentine's Day was a familial disaster of epic proportions; so be it. Spring provided me…

Good Riddance

For a song with a rude title, the sentimentality is palpable. Life is continuously slamming some doors in our face and cracking opening others for a peek.

Life's a dance we all have to do  why does the music quiet... People are moving together close as the flames in the fire... feel the beat, music and rhyme while there is time...

Maybe this is all too typical of how we (have to) deal with events in our world which drive us crazy. If I write that I want to balance my extraordinary frustration (emblematic of Jon Stewart in my previous post) with another post that will make me feel better, does that belittle the tragedy, even only as far as I feel it?
