Climbing #FridayPhilosophy

I thought today I should share some uplifting words on climbing. I may have been influenced by watching a recent news report on Alex Honnold and his free solo of El Capitan. 😜 Si, for those of us who may find the day to be an uphill battle, here are some words of wisdom: "It … Continue reading Climbing #FridayPhilosophy

Friday Philosophy…Suffering

It's a part of life, right? Plus, everyone seems to think that artists of any kind have to suffer, a fact I once complained about here. But we do suffer, at times.

I … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts from the Mind of a Woman on Anti-Histamines…

An odd, and possibly dark, Friday Philosophy is waiting for you this week. There's really no specific reason for this change in tone, just strange dreams and observations over the course of the past five days. I'm feeling pretty darn cheerful, despite all of that. And sleepy. Of course. Perhaps "dark" is an inappropriate adjective. … Continue reading TGIFriday Philosophy…
