Perspective

I am back!  My apologies on the hiatus, it was not intentional.  That is a story for another day though. After giving this considerable thought and knowing the potential backlash I have decided to still share this story. This past weekend was Special Olympic Eunice Kennedy Shriver day. As I…

Original Story?

Is there any such thing as a truly original idea or story or have all the general plots been done in some way shape or form? My husband and I debate this question often. We both will get ideas in the literary world or just something creative in general, then…

Giving back has always been an important part of my philosophy. The more given, the more open to possibilities open up is something I tried instilling into my students and now my son. With the economy the way it currently is, our current income does not allow me to give…
