Goings On

Try as I might, some weeks it’s really tough not to moan and groan when reading the news. It’s a shame too, since it puts a real damper on my normally upbeat, sunshiny, Pollyanna-like disposition.

Have you accepted self-inflicted limitation as a natural state of mind, like some sort of natural disorder/disaster? Limitation is relative. What appears to be a limitation to one […]

Playing with the Big Boys

Her perfume is boring and it smells up the hallways of wilted flowers. A stoic woman walks past me in a pant suit on a mission to press the elevator button. Her dated heels are muffled by the light gray carpeting. She must be a lawyer. There’s law offices all throughout this building, and especially […]

Broadway Barks – Cats for Cats

I want to Talk about so much, as this is a happening time! Just got back from two weeks in New York City, where I surprised David in big ways.
