Candy

Sometimes life isn’t neat and orderly. The lines between the different segments of our lives can be unclear – unless you’re an engineer or have some other type of well-organized, tabulated personality. For most of us, those lines can occasionally become blurred, which forces us to deal with issues on an “as they happen” basis, […]

Being Busy

Easy Rider

Last week I wrote…”Life is certainly one thing: uncertain.” – well, it’s certainly one other thing: busy! So forgive me for being late on the Movie Quote Thursday.

Friendship

Ben Hur

I’ve been reminded recently about what friendship means. More accurately, I’ve been reminded about what friendship means to me. What does it mean to you? If we were to all write a short definition of the meaning of friendship, collectively we couldn’t conjure up a comprehensive and exact explanation of the concept. The reason for […]
