My Month of Firsts Another month of silence in my blog. But honestly, I’m OK with it this time. I had such a big month in March as it will now be known as my Month of Firsts. I launched my very first online course. And let me say, that was an experience no one … Continue reading

The Day I Ran Away From Home

The Day I Ran Away From Home

What do cartoons have to do with my legal case? My son Jake watches this cartoon called Teen Titans Go.

A Human State of Mind

My State of Mind School has ended and summer camp has begun. I have great hopes this year for a productive summer. My usual list of things I want to get done is longer than my dog Winston when he stands on his legs and goes counter surfing. Last summer was a disappointment. I had … Continue reading
