Dealing with Difficult Colleagues @ Work

Over the years I have been both blessed and stressed by partnerships in the workplace. Like family, we often do not get the option of choosing our colleagues, and sometimes — eventually — must make changes and choices to avoid having to deal with them any longer. One might think that this is the beauty…Read More


Everyone needs a mentor.  Whether it’s a highly paid coaching professional, a colleague, or friend in your innermost circle, there is power in having someone in your corner who will tell you the truth and has your back, even when you think they don’t.

In With the Old and the New

As I continue my adventures in painting the new home office en suite, I have completed the first phase of the color makeover. Eight walls and 3.5 gallons (including the paint in my hair, on my clothes, and of course, the layer that found its way to the bottom of my feet). Don’t ask —…Read More

My friend bypassed the niceties, saying, “Are you at your computer?” “It’s writing season so that’s…Read More

Mad About Hats and Gin

After more than two years of lock-down, for those who celebrate Easter or Passover, this spring was a welcome shift in celebratory festivities. Traditional values dictate the ceremonial hiding and seeking of decorative eggs, baked ham, Sunday best at church, and if you live in my house: Peeps ™. I wanted to do something a…Read More

First Love

So sorry that I haven’t been keeping up with you lately. I’ve been a bit distracted. In truth, I was spending time with an old love. Some of you may know what it is like to reconnect with your first love. Initially awkward, you stumble to find the words that you want to use. Your…Read More
