Notes from the Harp

Captains log: January 18, 2022 It has taken me 18 days to settle into this new year. Not exactly a record but worth making note of. I have newly turned 59 years old. My cholesteral is finally too high for my doctor’s liking and so I join the ranks of other genteel statin-heads my age

Self-Care?

You hear the words “self-care” and visions of day spas, bottomless mimosas, and naps by the pool fly before your mind’s eye like a sizzle reel on youtube. You never think about the un-fun side of self-care. But alas, here I sit in my pj’s in my “home” office making that dreaded call to the

Life is like a drawer of fried chicken…..

Forest Gump almost had it right – POLITICIANS are like a box of chocolates…you never know what your gonna get. So instead of standing on my soap box today and preaching I just want to make an impassioned plea to your stomach to consider what the world¬† looks like thru my eyes. LIFE….AN IDEAL LIFE….

Seriously…Step aside….

Have you ever heard the phrase” Get out of your own way” ? For all the up and downs life throws us it seems that the answer can be as easy as ….STEP ASIDE. It seems we have been programmed to believe that for something to work it must be hard-won. That we must struggle to learn
