Meine Oma

It was a year ago today that my grandmother passed away. It was very hard to see her decline in her last few months of life, and the day before her death was very difficult for her and for us. I felt a huge relief for her when she passed Read more…

Healing

A week off of social media certainly helped make me feel better. I took the time to focus on getting some things done on my to-do list, take care of “me”, and decide how to proceed. Social Media is too important to quit completely. I keep tabs with too many Read more…

Well … maybe

Bottom line is that I want to blog again. However, I need to find the right platform, venue, URL, etc. I’m trying out “Ghost” and don’t mind it. I need to play with it a bit more though. I used WordPress previously and didn’t have any issues, it just felt Read more…
