When we are on a cruise, a road trip, at a wedding reception, the beach or a five-star restaurant, our unlikely pairing becomes the event that perfect strangers seem to want to join and participate in the laughter and the mischief-making. We haven’t figured out how that happens, but long ago we learned to go with it.

  • We need to learn from the past
    Sunday, August 27, 2017 9:13 AM
    We can’t help ourselves. Human frailty seems to keep the inherent battles going, even when we know better. We can’t seem to get out of our own way. Some may think history isn’t relevant, but it's amazing how often we repeat it.

  • Laughter, tears shared at high school reunion
    Sunday, August 20, 2017 10:23 AM
    I recently attended my high school reunion – a first for me. The number of years that has passed since taking that walk with cap, gown and a little naive wonder is still surprising. I’m now fixated on that number. By itself, the number is benign; but in the context of what was, is and will be, it is newly significant.

  • Has the world fallen off its axis?
    Monday, August 14, 2017 7:12 AM
    What is it about this time in history or this person that even with the weight of facts they choose to be unwavering in support? Our president is a man. He’s flawed. He’s also achieved success in his life. That doesn’t mean his ideas and behavior are always perfect – or always horrible.

  • Words mean more than we think
    Sunday, August 6, 2017 10:25 AM
    With the ACA, some basic tenants of what should be covered and available were defined. What wasn’t addressed is the influence and impact of the insurance industry on every facet of the system. Until we decide to peel that onion, everything else discussed, dismantled, derided or derailed is meaningless.

  • Is this who we want to be as a nation?
    Sunday, July 30, 2017 10:19 AM
    One of my greatest fears is that our collective memories as a nation are dimming. We’re losing our facts, truths and our sense of belonging to each other, for each other and with each other as a national community. Is this who we are now? More importantly, is this who we want to be now?

  • Healthcare critical to loved ones
    Sunday, July 16, 2017 10:08 AM
    I don’t have the magic answer to healthcare. But I do know what it isn’t. It isn’t the white noise we’re hearing from our national delegations – on both sides of the political divide. It’s not tax cuts, income distribution or a nameless/faceless industry. It’s our parents, children, siblings and spouses. It’s us. We deserve more.

  • Problems are just a state of mind
    Sunday, July 9, 2017 9:01 AM
    Poverty is a state of mind. If we have the right state of mind, we’ll be fine. Thank you, Dr. Ben Carson for illuminating all of us who want to meet our financial obligations of a house payment, utilities, food, medical care, transportation and possibly a trip to Yellowstone or a bouquet of flowers. We’ve been going about this all wrong.

  • Nothing quite like a good book
    Sunday, July 2, 2017 6:36 PM
    Reading is one of the best foundations we can provide for our children. I usually give books to kids/grandkids and the children of friends. There may a groan here and there since it isn’t the latest video or tech gadget, but I know I’m providing a small way for someone to look at life a little differently. Not everyone becomes a book or reading aficionado, but having the choice and the chance to read is important.

  • Do they still teach civics in schools?
    Monday, June 26, 2017 8:22 PM
    We have at least two people in positions of incredible authority with accompanying power in our country who actually think our government is set up to have a CEO at the helm. To borrow one of our current president’s favorite Twitter phrases – sad. Then, of course, I started thinking again. This is often a mistake. I thought to myself: How can our Congress function properly if some elected members think they are subordinate to the president?
