“Travel doesn’t become an adventure until you leave yourself behind.” ~Marty Rubin Dear Universe, I have long dreamed of traveling to Ireland.  And when the plan was made, everyone told me the same thing. I would love Ireland.  The Irish people would greet us with open arms.  Ireland is beautiful. And from the moment we arrived at the airport, I …

“Deepest joy is like a flower….beautiful in essence.” ~Tony Samara Dear Universe, I have discovered—or rather re-discovered—something about myself. I like gardening.  Specifically, I like planting flowers, caring for them and watching them bloom. Years ago, I would plant flowers in the spring and tend to them.  I always enjoyed it.  I don’t know why I forgot that. Life can …

Dear Universe, I have a confession.  Don’t judge me.  (Well, I know you won’t.) These past several days I have been sucked into a Hallmark Holiday Movie Marathon. Yes, I said several days.  And yes, I asked you not to judge! How did this happen, you ask? Well, it was the perfect storm of ingredients. This past weekend, I was …

Dear Universe, I love movies.  I love watching them in the theater or in the comfort of my home, in sweats, under blankets.

You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson Dear Universe, For a while …
