Could This Be My Last 2019 Email?

Since today is December 30th, this COULD be my last 2019 email to you…but, one never knows.  I’m glad to be able to re-start the clock with a new year yet again, and relieved to put the negative experiences of 2019 behind me.  I’m also surprised to look back on the year with gratitude and…

Christmas thru Cyberspace

Thank you, my friends, for your presence in my life.  I am so incredibly grateful for all of you, and so honored to be mentioned by name in every one of your Christmas letters which I’ve received.  Thank you.  I simply cannot imagine life without you.  I’m still teary-eyed with delight that so many close…

2 Days to 2 Weeks: Reminder!

A reminder of these three things: 1) In 2 DAYS, I’m returning to the HEART & SOLE  DANCE STUDIO (this Friday night, OCTOBER 4th) to host a BRIDGE dance. My daughter Katie teaches on this 3000 square foot WOOD dance floor. I just love the atmosphere and the space. Are you ready for a little road…

**Venue Update**

In case you haven’t heard, Tequila Roadhouse has closed its doors. I received the call a couple of days ago. The manager, Dominic, said we are a wonderful group and very friendly; we were the only group that had been with them from the beginning to the end. It was our honor to do so,…

He’s Gone…

He’s gone…Uncle Al (above, with me), my California Birthday Buddy, who always made me feel special with calls during the year. He had so much love for everyone, and was a substitute father for me. His loss leaves a permanent void in my heart. He’s gone…my real father…10 years ago this past July. We worked…

Class CANCELATION Advisory

I’ve always said people are more important than anything, so now it’s time to put my money where my mouth is. A couple of days ago I was notified that my favorite uncle, great-Uncle Al in California, just had a couple of heart attacks, and if I’m going to say goodbye to him, the time…

What Has Stuck?

I am not a fan of change. I’ve accepted it as part of life, and I’m working at not having a breakdown every time something I want to happen doesn’t happen, but I really STILL hate change. Unfortunately life IS change, so Denny’s advice is still true: “Suck it up, Buttercup!” So I do!   A…

Are You Afraid To Read This?

Recently (and against my will), I acknowledged that fear has been a major motivator in my life.  As time has passed and I have faced my fears and confronted them, I’ve seen that life isn’t as scary as I thought it was. I end up feeling stronger after delving into situations head-on, although many times…
