I was surprised to read my previous blog. I haven't posted since that time and so much has happened. The first and most important thing was my mother died in February of last year. It wasn't at all how I anticipated her passing.  Does it every go as we expect? I moved to Clearwater, Florida...

Restrooms are private, even in public. I was at Starbucks this morning and as I went to the bathroom, a woman was leaving.  She held the door open and waited for me to enter.  It was a full door hold.  I was polite and said, "Thank you," but it felt super strange. Why are you...
