Food for Food

Some food for thought.  Throughout the holiday season, try this simple suggestion and help feed the hungry. I call it: food for food. Invite your guests to bring a non-perishable food item. Wrap a box with Christmas paper. Place the box at your front door. Instruct your guests to deposit their items in the box. …

Doing Double-Time

Double-time: to move in double time; a slow running pace; keeping in step. I feel like I need to be doing life in “double-time”. If I could  high-step, double-time through my day, OH the things I would accomplish!  The clock is going faster and I am going slower. I wake with my never-ending  “to do” list …

The Small Stuff

December 1, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, A new month! I have missed our walking together.  A little disclaimer:  I just want you to know I have not been a couch potato all weekend. But I applaud you if you have been potato couching!  If you were able to rest, recover and reflect from a horizontal position throughout the holiday …

Couch Potato

Where did my walk take me today? Not very far. To the couch and  in front of the TV. All day long.  No mashed potatoes, no sweet potatoes; just a couch potato. I must watch the Macy’s Parade. Tradition. I must see the Rockettes perform. Tradition. No wavering on these traditions. Then football. And more football. …

The Children’s Table

November 24, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, Remember sitting at the  children’s table during a holiday meal?  You know, the table (usually located in the kitchen) where your cousins challenged each other to put carrot sticks up their noses.  You are stuck there because there is not enough room at the big people’s table (maybe “adult” is a better …

Stink, Stank, Stunk!

November 22, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, Balloons are so much fun, right? Everyone loves a balloon! They are colorful and can be twisted into fun animal shapes. Balloons usually signal a celebration, a party, definitely a fun time! Children, especially, love balloons. Give a young child a balloon and you made a happy friend! In October, …

Make it Special

Some of my most memorable birthdays are not  about a specific gift but about a specific feeling. I felt special. On my special day, I felt very special. That was a great feeling as a child. That is what has stuck with me. Not a gift that I eventually  outgrew or broke. But the lasting feeling of “I …

Unmerited Generosity

November 18, 2015 Dear Fellow Travelers, Today my life-walk took me several hours away to spend time with my 87-year-old aunt and accompany her to a doctor’s appointment.  She stands about 5 feet tall but can add a few inches when she gets her hair done.  She still has some life-fire in her belly and that white hair (poofy or not) only …
