It seems I was off to a rocky start and wondered if I was going to get pulled to the headmasters office (aka someone on campus but I had no idea who).Continue reading ““Mischief Managed” as the twins said”
It must have been the nuts. Usually my memory is not that clear… or perhaps I worked more than my share of Friday’s hence the clear look back. Whatever it was I remember and today I paid it forward 40 years later.Continue reading “The nuts made me do it”
I rarely plan my posts ahead of time. They just appear, as if by magic, into my head. The thoughts are usually in one theme and headed in a straight forward direction. Rarely are they philosophical or “flowy” in how they tie together a concept and the reality of daily living. Perhaps today I can manage that so I am going to interrupt Charlotte (once again).Continue reading “A ray of sunshine”
But wait – it’s #BellLet’sTalk day so just a quick post to talk about how important it is to address self care and mental health.
Too often it’s the elephant in the room and people just feel like they don’t have a choice. So they live with anxiety, depression and in pain emotionally. The pandemic has been extremely difficult for so many on a lot of levels.
Reach out. Call, text, email or emoji a friend or family member. Tell them you are there. Show them you are there by being there. Keep connecting. Keep trying even if it feels hard. It’s harder for them. Give them a piece of your heart.
Stay safe and stay kind.

I went rogue today and stepped away from the actual calendar activity. Yet, perhaps, it was my most kind act of the season but it’s one I can’t blog about except to say that I truly helped someone today.Continue reading “Rogue Day”
Holy snap. It’s 7 days into December and I’m already mixed up. I’ve managed to be behind and yet I am ahead which is often how I roll at this time of year.Continue reading “Holy snap 2020”
Well 2020 has been one big surprise after another hasn’t it? A pandemic that has seen toilet paper hording to anti mask rallies to a second wave that is crushing humanity. And I don’t mean “crushing it” in the way millenials mean it. It’s been a year of surprises so why would we design the advent calendar with one more surprise?Continue reading “Surprises 2020”
