Depression has taken on new meaning this week, and no amount of Prozac will treat it. Selling apples may also take on new meaning in the weeks to come. As I told The Beau last night: "Well, if I'm broke, I'm broke. Can't do anything about it." You'd think it would change my plans in some . . .
My nephew, a freshman in college, just returned my earlier call. He told me he was getting ready to have dinner with his father (my brother)."What?!" I asked, "this is your big Saturday night at college? Why aren't you out smoking pot or getting a tattoo or body piercing??"I thought it was a . . .
My friend, Joanne, is getting married this morning, about to start a happy life with a wonderful man. It's been a happy few months of parties and celebrations, reflecting the joy her wide circle of friends feel for her. At last night's pre-wedding party, I met a diverse group of her family and . . .

(Get a honkin' huge mortgage payment, but save $30/month on nails.) But since the Beau and I are . . .
I always wondered about the concept of soulmates.Until I found one.The Beau and I recognized each other as physical, emotional, intellectual and literary soulmates almost from the start. But we had to go through a hard season before we could seal the deal.A few hard seasons.Despite our close . . .
This is a shot of San Jose, Calif.I'll be there this weekend hanging with the Beau.No big plans. Probably just a movie, some videos, reading, resting. That's because there's been craziness at work and I need some down time.It's busy; I probably won't have much more to say here til I get home. . . .
Today I had a tea party and bridal shower for an amazing woman and friend who is remarrying later this month. Is there anything as fun as a lingerie shower of mid-life women? . . .
Here at Clearwater Beach, some 300 women from a North Tampa church are on retreat and so am I, invited by my wonderful, dear friend, Sheila. I arrived in discord and anxiety. I'm leaving with a greater sense of peace. They say that when the student is ready the teacher appears, and that's the . . .
