just a thought about love


Love is not a feeling- it is an energy that lives on forever. It moves from one to another and never ends – if there is grief, that love doesn’t end, it is transferred to new love and just continues on. I am quoting The Last Airbender – perhaps the […]

Malfunction Malfunction (and spoken in a robotic voice…)


My boy is made up of many parts – and many of them mechanical, inanimate and highly breakable. A few weeks ago, his alignment was off.  His walker veered to the right no matter what he did. He frequently found himself in the bushes and sometimes in the middle of […]

And the band played on…


A few days late with this post, but late is kind of my thing… We attended the Campbell School Band/Chorus/Orchestra concert last Thursday night and I cannot imagine a better evening.  Even though the band played three songs which all had only three notes and therefore sounded exactly the same, […]

me, me, me and a blog…

PTSSPMSPRHS


I am so tired, I can’t think straight and I am so tired. See, I can’t even write a sentence. I am standing in my kitchen with my 27th or so cup of caffeine procrastinating some unpleasant tasks and feeling completely unable to think. I thought that writing might take […]

A drive gone wrong


Max has never ever been an anxious kid.  He has taken life in strides and run fast into new situations with his head held high and a smile on his face.  He is a joiner, a partier, the outgoing  Mayor of every town. Until 2 weeks ago.  It all began […]

Summing it all up in a big long way, three days in the making


I had my final meeting with the program director and we are coming upon the last day of the program.  I am sad to see it go.  I had so much hope and anticipation for this summer, as I do for every summer, and the flip of the calendar page […]
