In Seattle yesterday we went with our youngest daughter, Chrissy, to the Teen Feed appreciation luncheon. Teen Feed is an organization that works to both feed and mentor homeless and at-risk teenagers. About a year ago, Chrissy told me of her work with the Seattle youth. To say I was impressed then by her commitement was an understatement. That… read more.
When this adventure back into physical fitness began some nine plus months ago, it never entered my mind that I’d be donning a wetsuit and swimming in October. Now to those of you who live in warm climates, that might not seem like such a big deal. But, here in the Northwest–it’s a huge deal. Let’s… read more.
It’s so easy to become blind to the beauty of where you live. After all, if you’re like me, you’ve lived in the same place most of your life. I drive by the Spokane Falls every day but I don’t see them. I drive along the Spokane River every day, but I don’t see it. … read more.
Life can change in an instant and you can’t ever go back. So, sometimes, you need to just stop and smell the roses–literally.

I started the journey six months ago grumbling but knowing the doc was right. It was way past time to get back to physical activity. I’d let that part of my life slip away as I focused on work and writing. I took his advice (after all, a heart attack didn’t seem very appealing) and… read more.
My brother died yesterday. Stretched out on the livingroom floor, his head resting on his arm, a blanket pulled up to his shoulders, looking as though he’d been watching television and simply fell asleep. Cancer took him from us before his time. My brother was a lost soul who traveled a difficult path. He never… read more.
Where I live we have a wonderful path that runs along the Spokane River from north of the city at Nine Mile Falls to the Idaho border. It’s called the Centennial Trail and it’s a fabulous thing for those who walk, run or bike, and want to enjoy the beauty of this part of the… read more.
So, I’m coming home from San Diego yesterday and had one of those moments that made me smile. I’ve carried an e-reader for almost five years and for a long time it was lonely. I rarely saw someone else with one. On the plane yesterday, I’m in a row with six people, one of whom was less… read more.
I’ve been working a lot lately on getting back into shape. Too much time spent reading and writing. Not enough time spent on keeping fit. I’ve been running, biking, and swimming. That first triathlon on May 31 will be here before I know it. I came across a site about Moms in Motion and it… read more.

Literally that is. I’ve been on the road walking and running and suddenly it comes back to me how much I really like to run. Oh sure, it hurts and it’s a lot of work but there’s a feeling you get from running you can’t get from anything else. The more I get out, the… read more.
