Friday Musings: Infinitely Deep and Profoundly True

Friday Musings: Infinitely Deep and Profoundly True

I had the most unexpected conversation about love this week. I was talking with a man, while doing laundry, who’d been married for 61 years. “We met in high school and it was love at first sight. She still amazes me every single day,” he said of his wife, “even with her white hair. She looks just like an angel.” And I believe him. I’ve seen them together. They make love seem limitless, without any of the boundaries that time, or age, or circumstances can create. Do the majority of us believe in this kind of

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Blue Rush

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Blue Rush

Flying Fish Brewing Company in Somerdale, NJ has a beer series based on the exits along the New Jersey Turnpike. As I was considering options for this week’s cocktail, I came upon their offering for Exit Three, which just so happened to be the exit closest to my house while growing up. Now I will readily admit to having a fascination with the Jersey Turnpike as a child. It’s okay if you’re thinking that’s a bit strange; I think it is too. I’m fairly certain that it comes from my love for maps, especially the

Monday Movie Bars: Of All the Gin Joints…

Monday Movie Bars: Of All the Gin Joints…

As of today, I’m going to be taking my Monday posts in a different direction. If you are a fan of the Coen brothers, then you know the way in which the setting in their films is often as important as one of the main characters. Think about the movie Fargo, for example. What would it be without all of those open snowy landscapes? I love movies. I love going to see them in theaters and I love watching them at home. I’ve wrapped quite a few of my more personal blog posts around them. So my wheels were

Friday Musings: With Deeper Thanks

Friday Musings: With Deeper Thanks

At this particular moment in my life, my heart feels overwhelmed with gratitude. When I sat down to write today’s post, I remembered one that I’d written just shy of a year ago, when I was standing right on the edge of something new and I was unaware of what the next year would bring me. Those of you who read me regularly and who know me well, are aware that things did not turn out exactly the way I thought they might. There were times when my perception and understanding of gratitude were challenged, and it was not until this past January that the universe helped me find my footing by literally knocking my feet right out from under me. And so I’ve been given a second chance to see this all differently. I’ve kept most of the original post the same, with the exception of some changes to the last paragraph that reflect my new understanding of things. I still believe in what I wrote on that day last May, and in the person who wrote it who had absolutely no idea what was about to hit her. I love the innocence in my voice. I’ve learned to be grateful for the situation I entered into back then because it brought me to the place I am today, much wiser, stronger, solid, and sure, and with such a greater capacity to appreciate everything and everyone that is part of my life, and the wonder of my deepest prayers being answered…

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Race for the Prize

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Race for the Prize

As I was perusing the beer aisle in my local liquor store looking for inspiration for this Wednesday’s post, I happened upon this Dragon & YumYums from Dogfish Head in Milton, Delaware. Who could resist such a fun name and such psychedelic label artwork?? Certainly not me. I was immediately intrigued. When I looked a bit more closely I noticed the name The Flaming Lips on the label as well. Now things were getting even more interesting. I had to know more! Let’s start off with the facts about
