2021 Olympics

Even for the most unathletic among us, the Olympics is a must watch event.  It features the very best athletes from 206 nations, with an amazing 11,238 athletes competing.  With COVID still raging, it seems miraculous that the games will actually happen and for a few days' time, we get to marvel at the very best athletes the world has to offer competing in 33 sports and 46 disciplines.   

Suffering from Burnout

Sometimes life is fantastic.  It feels as if you won the lottery, everything is going great, your meals are well planned and taste delicious, you are on top of all your chores, work and life balance is smack dab in the middle, bluebirds are singing, your coffee was strong and hot this morning and the sun is shining bright!  It feels like you are killing this life thing!  Your mantra is: Bring it on Life, Thank you Universe!  You go to sleep with a smile on your face and you wake up with it still on.  Life is good!

Warning Signs

This past year plus, 2020 into 2021, has held more than its fair share of tragedies.  The pile in our minds and hearts are full, but this past week added another layer to our teetering stack.  A week ago, the Champlain Towers South near Miami Florida partially collapsed, burying over a hundred and fifty people.  12 people have been confirmed dead and 149 people are still missing.  Our hearts ache for the families whose loved ones remain missing and for those who lost loved ones.  The tragedy compounds as information slowly trickles in that this collapse was due to h

Summertime Sadness

Summertime as a child was magical.  It was bursting with possibility, camps, friends, staying up late, swimming, and visits from or to the grandparents, just this huge sunny void waiting to be filled with fun.   As an adult it has become increasingly clear that summer puts a lot of strain on parents and caretakers.  Adults slip into the role of fun producer, snack maker, meal buyer and maker, trip planner, camp chauffeur…, often while working full or part time.  The end result is exhaustion.  Even without children, the fun of youth is but a distant dream.
