Peace Movements

Back in ’71 when 8-tracks were the rage, one album I kept looping forever on my brand new player contained the song “Peace Train”, by Cat Stevens (from “Teaser and the Firecat” – which means – I give up). Everyone sang it – Dolly Parton, 10,000 Maniacs, people in the shower, on the street. It […] Continue reading

My Redeemer Lives

Today I heard some sad news. A woman who was a fitness class teacher at the Natatorium passed away after a battle with leukemia. I didn’t know her well, but just from taking her classes I could tell she was … Continue reading

Life doesn’t have to suck.

This morning was an exact replica of just another lousy morning… My alarm went off. I died inside. I pressed snooze… 10 minutes later (it felt like 10 seconds,) it went off again. And again. And again. Never have I … Continue reading

2012 in Retrospect

My annual year-in-review blog comes a few weeks late due to log in problems. 2012 was a year of change in many ways. Last January, Neil and our best couple friends left the high school group we’d been leading and … Continue reading
