When we think we know all the answers to a given situation, we lose perspective. But when we see firsthand a dearth of basic knowledge it should give us pause, and it may not be a cause for laughter. It may be a cause for concern.
  • Perspective important for all of us

  • Does anyone else feel they need a good laugh?
    Saturday, May 11, 2019 9:29 AM
    Hopefully, humor, in some form, will survive. Humor and some anecdotes that periodically appear in emails, on social media, radio or television, are small reality checks that I so enjoy. To that end, I’d like to share a few.

  • Life's full of clumsy little moments
    Saturday, April 20, 2019 10:41 AM
    In between the above episodes, I’ve dropped and broken three glasses, tripped partially down the basement stairs, hit my knee on the same desk corner at work more than once, lost my car keys and cellphone (both found after much handwringing, and more use of colorful metaphors directed inward), dealt with Toby’s infected post-surgical wound, leaking sink, filing taxes and a few other of life’s daily reminders that things happen that upset the day and the routine.

  • Societal norms take a big hit
    Monday, April 15, 2019 5:42 AM
    Lying, bullying and other societal changes. I wonder if anyone else has given any thought to these traits recently. Unless one decides to willfully ignore the news or stay completely away from other humans, it’s something we seem to be dealing with on a daily or hourly basis. It’s pervasive.

    I’m not sure I can articulate why this year a small bud may be forming inside me that is more anticipatory of this season. Whatever the reason, I guess I’m going to go with it.

  • Spring is a time to reminisce
    Saturday, March 30, 2019 9:20 AM
    As the March calendar is on the waning side, it’s always a tough month for me. The anniversary of my husband’s death is this month. While time continues to distance so many things, the memories remain vivid and precious. Fortunately, my best friend decided to visit this month. It was a much-needed emotional connection to memories, friendship and grief that never completely leaves one’s soul.

  • New Zealand tragedy fueled by hatred, fear
    Saturday, March 23, 2019 11:19 AM
    Whether one agrees or disagrees, there is never a time when I sit down to write a column when I don’t feel humbled that I’ve been afforded this opportunity. More times than not, a column begins with jotting down thoughts about situations so I can make sense of things, whether it’s my own clumsiness or the frightening events happening in the world.

  • Old TV shows an escape from reality
    Thursday, March 14, 2019 11:57 AM
    I was going through another one of my ‘disconnect from news phases and turned to some old standbys to provide lighthearted, good natured laughs. The "Mary Tyler Moore Show," "M*A*S*H" and "The Dick Van Dyke" all did their job. They took me back in time and provided a situational humor I could relate to.

  • Washington’s rules still apply today
    Sunday, March 10, 2019 9:41 AM
    If there was ever a time since Washington that the new world was in need of civility and decent behavior, it’s now. Reading through the 110, I chuckled at some of the provincial thoughts as well as longed for the return to some of the basic rules of conduct so long forgotten. These were the rules of conduct he strived to live up to and incorporate into his life.
