ShareGratitudinousness.  It’s one of my favorite conjured words. And it really works in that gratitude is such a BIG concept…I think it kinda needs more greedy letters “We don’t need more to be thankful for, we might just need to be more thankful.” Unknown Many who know me in my life and on Twitter and […]

ShareAs much as I’ve called this tranquil town my second or third home by visiting it so much, I’ve never lounged around on my own, basking in the feeling of living like a local in Santa Barbara.  I’m house-sitting for a few weeks and that means my childhood friend who I pal around with when […]

ShareI lost a grand source of joy in my life today.  Did I say coping?  That’s hardly the word. My friends…I fumble on my keyboard through a blur of tears. We lost our cherished beautiful, spunky, mischievous, playful, loving and demanding, darling companion dog…the one I had been writing about here.  Intellectually and spiritually I […]

ShareFeeling Good and Mischievous Our beloved “nut” (rather than mutt) Paloma has endured five radiation treatments.  Perhaps its her “dad” and me who are doing the enduring, as she is happily sedated and gets treats afterward, and gets to ride in the car for two hours each way (her favorite pastime!)  How fortunate that animals […]

ShareIt started with some sneezing this winter.  Now, we are faced with the diagnosis of terminal cancer for our beloved rescue dog, Paloma.  It’s a journey millions have sadly taken with their companion animals and if you’ll indulge me, I thought I’d write down some details of diagnosis, treatment, and my thoughts and emotions as […]

ShareYou were just a big love sponge, weren’t you? You soaked up more affection and loving than most cats do in 20 years.  Thing is, you gave it all back, and more.  Now you’re off to the big salmon platter in the sky…I want to be happy for you, but these damn tears… Thank you […]
