Window Into Our Wombs

When I arrived at Union Station on Friday, January 19, I was overwhelmed by throngs of March for Life participants. In the midst of the chaos, I spotted an older white man sheepishly holding a sign, looking really uncomfortable. Averting my eyes, he shifted his sign sideways so I couldn’t read it. Which made me …

Standing Still

The movement began in stillness “Be still and know that I am God. – Psalm 46:10 This powerful quote comes to mind sometimes. And it always gives me a sense of peace. It’s a gentle command, imploring us to pause, be calm and pay attention. When I reflect on the Women’s March on Washington last …

ICE! A Charlie Brown Christmas

Baby it’s cold inside… at the ICE! A Charlie Brown Christmas at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando. Nine degrees, to be precise. But visitors should be prepared to have their heart melted by this classic Peanuts story all over again. It’s not clear if our two-hour wait to get into the …

Just Say No… to the Office Christmas Party

It’s that’s time of year again. Lights and trees are going up everywhere. The quest for the perfect gift has begun.

One-Way Street

We got stuck in the traffic on the way home from Key West on Monday. I’ve heard this happens a lot on Sundays. So it’s no surprise we would run into a jam returning home on a national holiday. Especially since there is only one lane in and out of the Florida Keys. I’m definitely …

Sunday, May 29, was a pretty hot day in Key West. So we decided to do our exploring in the morning before it got too hot. We have only been to Key West one other time. And this was the first time we got to see the Key West lighthouse. Had we known it was …

Hibiscus Mandala

I’m doing my daily “mandayla” from the Hibiscus room of the Duval Inn in Key West today. So I decided to use a hibiscus as my centerpiece and starting point. I immediately noticed that the hibiscus I was referencing online bore a strong resemblance to a vagina. I pointed this out to Brad, who is …

Why I Love Walt Disney World

We are just six days out from our next Walt Disney World vacation. Our personalized magic bands have arrived, one purple and one green. I have made a few, tentative FastPlus+ selections and thought I’d share some of my excitement in a post. We are going to the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival next …

The Dust Test

To me, dust is one of the most pervasive annoyances on the planet. I have always despised household chores. But the act of dusting has always seemed especially futile to me. It’s painfully boring, and needs to be done over and over again because the results are so short lived. Growing up Catholic, the priests …

Redefining More

The person who dies with the most toys wins. Bumper sticker wisdom like this says a lot about how we relate to our things. It’s not just about having lots of things we like. It’s about having lots of things just to have them, and having more things than everyone else. In a consumer-driven society, …
