Musical Moments

For me, life has an endless soundtrack. Some people see their memories in colors, or smells, or maybe as little black & white movies, or a faded snapshot of a moment, but I see mine BOLD and almost always set to music. Maybe I watched a lot of films, but for me, almost every memory […]

Recently a post on social media reminded me of something… I was previously married! This was when I was 19 years old – and because I have been divorced for well over a decade now, most the people in my life have no idea, and as I stated, even I tend to forget about it […]

Love at first sight?

With the old Valentines Day 2020 fast approaching, I thought it was an appropriate time to discuss this concept. Do I believe in this? No, and here’s why: Love requires respect, admiration, trust and much more. Those will never be established or built in a moment – therefore “love at first sight” really can’t exist […]

I don’t want children

As a little girl, I never really played “dolls” or “baby” games. I don’t know why – I do recall HAVING a small baby doll, but I didn’t have much desire to pretend to be a mother or nurturing type of figure. I never wanted (or tried) to be a babysitter during my teen years, […]
