“Are you looking forward to seeing your family?” I ask my VP on Monday. I know the reason she was going back home wasn’t exactly a happy reunion because it was her brother’s memorial, but I still asked. She began to get emotional, which wasn’t my intent when I originally inquired. “I’ve been thinking about it and I guess I just haven’t accepted it,” she … Continue reading Emptiness, It’s Such A Horrible Feeling
“Grandma just passed away,” my mom texted me on March 10, 2017. I was sitting in my car in North Carolina waiting for my husband to finish his home inspection class. I was sleeping in the car while he attended his 3-hour class. It was almost lunch time when I learned my grandma died. I laid on my front seat and cried. I cried because … Continue reading Negligence at Manor Care in Langhorne Killed My Grandma!
I woke up feeling weak, powerless and uninterested in getting the day started. It was partially because I hardly slept and also I was still in disbelief that it was already Monday.

I sit in silence listening to the fans circling round and round and feel a slight breeze on my face. I’m in the living room of my apartment. No, it’s not just my apartment.

We deal with death in various ways. Some may break down and cry and others might pretend as of nothing has happened. This morning, around 7:30 a.m., my cat … Continue reading Death of a Cat
So, the truth is, we don’t like to talk about the topic of death. I don’t have to ask why because I know. In the past, I wrote-up an article on Buster & Ellie centering around death & dying: Why Don’t We Ever Talk About Death & Dying? It looms over us every day of our lives. We know it’s there. Some people try to … Continue reading Why Don’t We Ever Talk About Death & Dying?
I was confused, annoyed, frustrated, weird, strange, odd. I didn’t know what I wanted & I still don’t. I haven’t a clue where I’m going, what I’m doing, what’s ahead, but I’ve found that most haven’t any idea. No one truly knows their path. It’s difficult to find. There are bumps & curves along the way & it’s never completely clear. Something always happens in … Continue reading Come to me, my dear sir!
