This is who we are!

These days it feels like we aren't America anymore.

That instead of Make America Great Again 

we have become Who Is America Now?

I've been struggling with this question this holiday season.

I wanted to find something, anything that depicted what we have lost and what we are losing.

Something that represented who we really are.

Are we a country and people who will only help others if they pay us enough money?

Are we a country and people who go back on our commitments to others?

Have we really become some slogan that professes that we are America First and only?

Where would we have been if other nations had thought that way after 9/11?

We all live on this planet together...we should not be; America First...

We are the world!

So, here is to 2019.

May it be saner and more loving.

May it be calmer in the chaos.

May it be a year when we find our way back to the middle ground.

Because in 1985 THIS was who we were and 25 years later in 2010 THIS  is who we still were and who we would be wise to keep striving to be.    

Happy New Year...

The power of the written word...

Hand writing is an art.

It is becoming a lost art.

When was the last time you received a hand written letter?

That sensation of carefully opening an envelope addressed to you.

What kind of stamp was used to send it?

Unfolding the paper inside.

Perhaps it's parchment or pale blue with the faint scent of the person who composed it.

Letters from a grandmother.

A daughter or son.

Letters from someone stationed somewhere far away in the military.

A love letter stained with tears.

Lipstick kisses on the back of an envelope.

Little hearts or o's, to dot the i's.

Along with a  hand written letter come clues of the personality of the person who sent it.

Our handwriting reveals a lot about who we are.

Are the letters cursive or block print?

The depth of the impression left by the pen can tell you the persons mood while writing.

We can't tell any of these things in e-mails or texts.

Yes, now we can Skype and email and text and that's all great!

Instant communication has definite advantages.

But perhaps we should not be in such a hurry to forget the power of handwritten letters delivered

through the least while the mail still exists.

A hand written letter can be a powerful thing.

So grab a pen and some paper, write a letter.

If you're feeling really bold write one to your Senator or your congressman, you can even write one to Donald Trump (although, I hear he doesn't read much).

Write someone a letter.

Even if you never send it.

Have a wonderful weekend!

just a small slip...

We apologize, but we are taking a small slip back into politics just for a moment.

Actually we think we've done pretty well staying away from the headlines this month what with all that's going on.

But we just couldn't resist drawing a parallel to the political world in the context of a slightly tweaked nursery rhyme...

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the kings horses and all the kings men,
couldn't put Humpty together again...


Humpty Dumpty wanted a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the kings horses and all the kings men,
couldn't get Humpty elected again.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
