I’ve long known that TIME and MONEY co-vary, but have recently detected a new element in the mix: ENERGY. The co-variance of these components can be drawn thus:11070090_1622067078013236_3056926056105032499_n

Living Life as a Miracle: Purple Hearts

P1050186A dozen purple hearts dance around my wrist alongside a sapphire as blue as my eyes, which not like the middle Eastern evil eye amulet, thank heaven.

Mother’s Magic Wand

There were few things that Larry and I retrieved when the sibling group cleaned-and-cleared out our parents home after my dad’s death. After all, I had wanted parents, not remnants of life and love lost.

My husband wanted my mom’s ironing board, a wistful ode to her thorough caring.… ...
