    THE FEARS OF GROWING OLD

    I got in a lot of trouble for asking too many questions. I think I felt the same way about church. I went because I had to go. But I would ask a million questions. Things didn't make sense and things were not fair. Not when I saw so much wealth and my family helped so many other families in our...

    THE FEARS OF GROWING OLD

    I don't think I was trying to escape when I was little. I just liked reading. My Dad would bring me travel books and we would sit together on the couch and go through them. I used to ride my bike to the library since I read every book we had at home. I go into the library at the elementary...

    THE FEARS OF GROWING OLD

    All the time!!!! I think I would fail at that job because i would be wandering through the rows of books and not happy sitting at a counter checking out books. I L-O-V-E books. When I was little, I used to read everything I could get my hands on, from the back of cereal boxes, leafing through...

    No, I haven't read that. I think its healthy to discover what you can do to give hope and more happiness to your life. Was the book about the person that tattooed the prisoner numbers?

    THE FEARS OF GROWING OLD

    I guess that miserable can be on their dating profile and they can meet their match. What a bummer. And yes, I think I've always been pretty positive. Theres always been something good in my life. Even if it was just a yummy coffee or warm sunshine on a cold day, how can I say its all bad?

    Advice for a close friend.

    In all of this, I think the most important thing is that he's seeing his kids, loving them and spending quality time together. Consistently. His kids will remember this forever, that their Dad was always there for them. It will be hard to be the 'bigger' person in the relationship, letting go of...

    Yes, its an interesting story about lots of people living in the Cannery Row area. It is a beautiful area and I was blessed to hang out on the beaches there and surrounding areas growing up. It is still a gorgeous place and I only go back to visit my family, but I still like all the places i...

    THE FEARS OF GROWING OLD

    I've heard that too. Although I don't drink wine( I drink other adult beverages in moderation), I think its about savoring our lives and adding good things to it. Theres always something good to appreciate. I also agree with the rest of the quote. That would be a good tshirt; Destroy the...

    What are you listening to?

    I'm listening to Charles Bradley perform a passionate cover of Black Sabbath's 'Changes" Wow. Beautiful. And that guitar? It did me in. Someone said he isn't sweating in this video, but that his entire body is crying over losing his Mom. Passion.

    The Last Normal School Year

    I think that if you want to homeschool your kids, thats great. I have always offered my free tutoring assistance to any family, whether enrolled in school or home. All that matters to me is that every adult does their best to give each child a quality education and enough socializing to build...

    The Last Normal School Year

    I'm with them everyday and we're handling it pretty well. We want to be at school, we want to see our friends etc. I think that the adults and the kids are doing pretty great considering what we need to do. We're all happy being back together. I was never out of teaching except two weeks last...
