In My World

My friend Joan Schaublin, who I have actually not yet met face to face and hug to hug, but no less heart to heart, had posted something on her Facebook page this morning about her adventure in the grocery store. It […]

The Day My Life Changed

  It is 7:44 a.m.  on December 21, 2013. Fifteen years ago at this moment, I was in the midst of  a maelstrom of emotion that threatened to suck me down into its swirling vortex. Sitting in the MRICU  (Medical Respiratory […]
