Hanging By A Tail

Hanging By A Moment is one of my top favorite songs. Seeing my cat Mortimor hanging by the tail comes in 2nd on the list of the worst things I’ve seen in my life. While hard to get the images of that night out of my mind, I’m grateful for how the events unfolded so…

Flying High

Up in the tree, he sways, he waves The movement means he’s alive He holds our weight so that we can fly Thank you Bob the tree For allowing us to climb, to glide Zipping through the trees with big, bright smiles 30 seconds of freedom, weightless bliss Providing a securely, insecure place for our…

Fridgewasher

My chore growing up was to empty the dishwasher and I despised this activity. Why? Well, I think simply because I was being told to do something versus doing it because I wanted to. You would think even if a teenager isn’t asked to do something, they won’t do it at all but for me…

Alkalize Your Heart

Does your esophagus feel like a sky on fire like the picture above? At the first sign of heart burn, which you can usually sense the moment you eat or drink something that is high in acid, oily or fried, you can neutralize the burn before it even begins. Or after it begins. Either way,…

Soak Those Oats!

When you think of oatmeal, what are the first thoughts that pop into your mind? Boring? Bland? Overflowing pot of water/milk? Burnt tongue? Those are definitely thoughts that come to my mind. However, other thoughts come to mind as well such as high in fiber, potential for greatness, filling breakfast, and heart healthy. As part of…
