It’s been a long time. . .

Hi friends, It’s been far too long since I have written a post here. I do post on my Facebook page pretty regularly so I hadn’t checked out the many responses here for some time. I am delighted so many of you have written. It has been quite a year […]

Change your mind and your life will change too.

The title to this post is similar to the title of one of my books written a few years ago. The exact title of that book is: Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow. It was a book of 12 simple principles that had the capacity to make a […]

Getting grounded again.

It always takes some time to get grounded when I move from Naples in the winter to MN in the summer. I have made this trip back and forth for nearly 30 years, which actually means about 60 trips. Egads! But Joe and I consider ourselves extremely lucky that we […]

Hello again. Please forgive me for my absence.

I have been absent for quite a spell. Life got in the way, not necessarily the better parts of life. In my last post I shared that I had just had a hip replacement, actually hip revision, a redo of one that was done 19 years ago. And now, 8 […]

I have not reached perfection but progress has been made.

It’s hard to believe, as I hobble around on a cane these days, that I was golfing three times a week, doing yoga twice a week and an exercise class twice a week too, just over a month ago in Naples. Our return to Minnesota for the summer has presented […]

Back in MN. May 23rd. Rain and more rain. . .Occasional sun.

Dear friends. How glad I am that at least some of you have weathered the storms with me these last few months. Along with being off the grid as far as my website has been concerned, I have been a bit out of sync with much that has always kept me […]

Peace Begins With Me

Back up and running!

Thanks to the able mind of my web host, I am functioning again. It’s truly disheartening when someone takes over your site and prevents you from connecting with your friends. Some folks have cold hearts I think. They deserve our prayers, however. Everyone deserves our prayers actually. Even though I […]
