DEMASKING AMERICA

By |2020-05-16T10:49:32-04:00May 16th, 2020|Categories: General, Personal Musings, Politics|Tags: , |

A Balancing Act between our Health and the Economy I recently listened to a favorite radio talk show Viewpoint This Sunday on the America Out Loud platform. The topic of discussion was about wearing facemasks. The consensus appeared to be that it was unwarranted, unhealthy, and unnecessary. The dialogue between the Radio Host, Malcolm, and his guest speakers, focused particularly on their individual rights. They also shared a frustration at the glances and visual scorns they received when not wearing a facemask in public areas. The next day I read an article about a birthday party in Pasadena, California. [...]

MAINTAINING OUR HUMANITY

To many of you it’s obvious that I haven’t written a blog for some time, and while and I could offer many excuses, they would pale into insignificance during the current state-of-affairs. But something has been churning in my mind and it’s time to spill the words onto cyber-paper. Joe, my husband and I, while self-sequestered in our home, have reflected upon how incredibly fortunate we are, not only to be able to work out of our home, that our love is strong enough to spend 24/7 together without issue…no pots and pans flying…actually, there’s been a lot of [...]

SHAMELESS PROMO

By |2020-04-10T16:17:50-04:00November 7th, 2016|Categories: Book Releases, Max Ford Thriller Series, Personal Musings|

Yesterday was a momentous day! After a year of 24/7, Climatized, the first novel in a Max Ford Thriller series, was released. But it was also the culmination of eight years of writing and producing five novels. Fortunately, my husband is also my editor, so it was a journey we shared together. Now, as it was with the release of the prior novels, the champagne remains chilled with its cork waiting to be popped. It always seems that up to the moment the book is published, our list is fraught with tasks ranging from final touches to major commitments. Then, when the day finally arrives the list [...]

THE MORAL DILEMMA — WHEN IS ENOUGH?

Today, was not my usual power-walk. Instead of recording various thoughts for the book, my mind kept drifting back to a few article I had read earlier in the morning. So, before I can return to the murderous plot I'm concocting for Max to solve...let me unleash... Obama vowed he would to transform America, and in many ways he has accomplished his goal. His push to redistribute the wealth in the U.S. and his support for the United Nations’ proposal for countries to pay their fair share to those countries suffering disasters, are only two recent examples. Most significantly, he has managed to weaken [...]

DO IT…DONE…LIFE SIMPLIFIED

  You may have noticed that during the summer months I’ve been spending most of my time in the “Time Out” Room in cyberspace. But it has not been for the lack of activity or a much-needed vacation. My time has been spent organizing a move from one house to another in Sarasota including: orchestrating modifications to the new home, working off the pesky list of things to do like switching over utilities, change of address, and dealing with the myriad of documents conjured up by lawyers to be signed…all the while living in Florence. Then I returned to Sarasota [...]

  ARE YOU MILDLY CURIOUS AS TO MY RELATIVE SILENCE? If so, I can provide the reason in one word...   D E S tarting last May, Joe, my loving husband and editor, was hit with a series of medical issues. And for a man who is extremely healthy, it was quiet daunting. Then there was my foot saga that continues to present shoe challenges daily. The unexpected and unplanned health issues continued to plague us, capping off the year at the Mayo Clinic during the Christmas holiday season. Then, after the harsh welcoming of the New Year, our good health [...]
