The way Soho smells after rain shower

my back after an extended stretch

the hurt in my ribs after a deep satisfying laugh

the scene in Us where Red says “We’re Americans”

the days where no obligations beckon and life allows restlessness to be contentment

January’s theme song…


Reading, Listening, Living….



I am in the middle of a setback. It is not minor or major. It is a setback that requires me to be aware about my possibilities and patient with my emotions.  I’m doing a lot of reading and listening to help me live through the setback.  I’m sharing my reading/listening list because maybe you will find some insight and comfort, as well.

Happy reading and listening,
