We have been without power for approximately 24 hours…it is now back on!! When the power is out for that long one realizes how much we depend on it. Candles are nice for atmosphere, but for actually providing good light to see or do anything by…well, they leave a lot to be desired. We had to keep the refrigerator shut. The gas furnace needs electricity to ignite the pilot and for the thermostat. Our gas stove still worked, but we had to light the burners with a match. No T.V.. No radio. And worst yet, no internet…
Very grateful to have our electricity back and hoping that everybody has there’s back soon.

Do we “photoshop” our way to making something look different than what it really is?
I hope not.
But I wonder…if someone where to look at how we promote some plans, would they say, “wait a minute – that’s not what it really looks like.” Continue reading

The real motivator for me has always been the opportunity that exists out “there.” In other words, the possibility of what could be. Regardless of where or what or who, I am always intrigued and moved by what might be. I know that today can always be better than yesterday.
