If You Don’t Like to Meditate, Try Art
Don’t tell me to meditate. Seriously, I can’t do it. Meditation requires me not to think and it’s not for me. With all respect to anyone who loves their pillow mediation time, I propose artitation. No, it’s not a word. As I mentioned, I like to think. I also enjoy making up words.
The Joy of Beading
I’m a self taught jewelry designer. During the course of my design education, I discovered the art of seed bead embroidery. I love all aspects of jewelry design but I find tremendous joy making this type of jewelry.
Wisconsin Warrior Brood XIII
I’m a hobby nature photographer and my specialty is my own backyard. I live in Wisconsin and it’s normal to capture a great photo. My past photos include deer, birds, squirrels and bugs. My most exotic sighting was a snow owl one wintry day but I didn’t get it on film.

The Ultimate Mom Lesson
My mother’s hands are clutched tightly closed. They’re contracted from disease. Those same hands used to feed me and hold my hand as a child. Now I feed her as an elderly adult. My mother no longer walks but is completely bedridden. She taught me how to crawl and watched me walk. As she battles dementia, I assist her in every daily need. Sadly, the same angelic voice that sang to me now simply rambles or doesn’t speak at all. My mother helped me speak and taught me to sing when I was a little girl. Reversing roles isn’t anything I anticipated. It’s the last lesson my mother will teach me.
The Legacy List
I like to read bucket lists. People give so much thought to what they’d like to accomplish. Next year, I’ll be turning the corner on a meaningful milestone birthday. I decided to reinvent the bucket list because I want to do something meaningful with my life. So, I developed a bucket list for humanity. I call it the legacy list.
