Tom, the blogmaster of Sightings Over Sixty, decided to get self-reflective this week. He wonders: are baby boomers leaving the world a better place than we found it, with better technology, a solid economy, and more peace, tolerance and love? Or are we shortchanging our children and grandchildren by leaving them with a mountain of debt and promises that are impossible to fulfill? See what you think over at Are Baby Boomers Just Lucky?

And of course, for me, aging has brought with it a creative urge, so I’m making beautiful, soy artisan candles stuffed with healing crystals and botanicals. It really is a lot of fun. For summer I decided to amp up with some beautiful colorful frosted glass candle holders in scents like Sparkling Sangria, Pink Lemonade, Tropical Coconut Mango and Pina Colada. I know I’m pushing the season, but it’s been such a dismal winter that I needed something to brighten my days! Read about my summer cocktail sets here at A Healing Spirit.
