Reflections on my 30s: my decade in review

I rang in my 30s–or should I say I sang in my 30s–at a north Dallas-area mall in an “up and coming” suburb, by belting out contemporary Disney tunes–specifically “Arabian Nights”, high on a dark chocolate shake and full of good mood food from The Cheesecake Factory, after which I loudly proclaimed that my 30s … More Reflections on my 30s: my decade in review

Mystery SOLVED (?)

I don’t want to say it’s solved for sure, but I could very well have just found a nugget.

Here are the facts as I understand them. Sometime in July of 2015 (yep, going on two years ago), I … More People do *not* just herniate discs in their sleep (unless…)

I talked about how good it felt to have graduated … More Memories of clinging
