Living in the Moment is Exhausting  Being present and living in the moment is a great idea, a mantra that keeps you from worry and stress, if you can do it. My issue is that everything reminds me of something else. For instance, I may like the color of the shirt you are wearing. It is my best friend’s sister’s favorite color, and her bridesmaids wore it in her wedding in the 1980s.  The 80s, that was a great decade! I miss big hair Read more…

I was quite underwhelmed with the DNC, until Barbara Jordan gave the keynote address. It seems silly to notice that a black person or a woman might speak anywhere anymore, but this was the first black person to address the DNC and also the first woman to do so. If you do not know who Barbara Jordan is, you must Google her. She is my hero, and she had been my hero since I was about nine.
