…what to do when your Mom is diagnosed with cancer

That’s not a heavy headline at all, right? Don’t worry. I’m not going to give you a 7-Step Download or self-help guidance. I couldn’t any more answer that question for you than I could tell you why I wear an 8 1/2 in a shoe on my right foot and a 5 on my left. Beats...
The Reckoning:  My second Walk from E22 to B14

The Reckoning: My second Walk from E22 to B14

Charlotte, NC:  the walk from terminal E, Gate 22, to Terminal B, Gate 14, will forever be etched into my mind. The first time I made that exact walk was a cold snowy night about 3 years ago. I was trying to get back home to Nashville from a business trip. I remember...

…he thinks you’re ugly?

I was recently telling a great guy friend a story about a man walking up to me in the grocery just to tell me he thought I was ugly. My friend couldn’t believe it. Were you following him?  No. Could he have thought you were someone else?  No. Was he actually flirting with you?  No. […]
