We’re All Connected

Growing up in a large family, I was constantly reminded that though I had my own identity, I was still part of something larger.

Stuck in a Rut?

Growing up in New England, I remember winter storms. In particular, I recall a storm that started as slush and rain, then the temperatures dropped and it all froze.

Be Your Life’s Driver

I still remember the first day with my driver’s license. I had the ability to go anywhere. Okay, I had to ask for the car. And I had to follow the restrictions on the license. And I had to follow the family’s rules. But I had the ability to blaze my own trail. Soon, as … Continue reading
