Let’s Hear it for Halloween!

Halloween in Greenwich Village in NYC is a cultural happening. Lower Manhattan literally shuts down during the parade. Imagine MardiGras, but with costumes and candy, and where the temperature is hovering right above freezing. It is something you just have to experience. This is my first Halloween in almost seven years that I’m missing theContinue reading Let’s Hear it for Halloween!

The Season of Awareness

I think I’m going to call this season of my life, The Season of Awareness. Before I get into tonight’s post, I have to quickly mention a sponsor.

After Monday’s post, I’ve been, underwhelmed to say the least, to sit down and pour my heart out in an emotional and spiritually uplifting post.
