The Dance of Anxiety

Hi, my name is Cathy...and I suffer from Anxiety ... on the daily... When I was younger, I never knew what anxiety was, and when I first heard of it, I scoffed it off as ridiculous "diagnosis". I did that while I was suffering, only I didn't know the name. I had my...

You think your food choice doesn’t matter?

Okay, so yes; I'm writing a second blog today.  Although, I'm gonna call it my first; because this mornings was more of a movie review.  And as this is MY blog....I can do what I want!!! I noticed something this morning and I had to share.  I worked out with Heidi at...

Sense of purpose

Have you ever felt pulled to something over and over again?  You try to ignore it, but eventually you are there again??? Last night I was messing around with my dog.  She is a bit of a nut. But one thing she absolutely LOVES....is to 'find' you! If you bury yourself...

A word about food and health

Yesterday, I wasn't  feeling so hot.  My stomach was hurting and I felt like I needed to go to the dr.  I hate Drs.  They guess at what is going on with you, or put you through tons of tests until they get to the confirmed diagnosis of "not sure". I was talking to my...

REALITY HAS LANDED

Well, it's here. At least in our part of the country, schools have started. First day pictures have flooded facebook pages and as a photographer I can honestly say, I see it in the faces of all the kids... THIS SUCKS!!! My daughter was a Class of 2020 "graduate". I...

The Beauty of Getting Away

We are in what feels like the forever middle of a Pandemic. If you have anything related to internet or a TV, you can't get through the day without hearing "Covid-19" or "Coronavirus"... It's literally insane. I keep telling myself we are literally in the middle of...

Keeping it Light in Dark Times

These are some dark times. These last (how many months has it been?) have tried us on so many levels. There are times (and I know I am not alone) that I couldn't believe what I was seeing. And with each day, I think tomorrow will be better, only, there are more trials...

Thirty one days of Enrichment

Covid 19 statewide quarantine! This is it.  It's been called.  Thirty one days of "Stay in your home" for all California residents. How do you weigh in? A prison sentence? A challenge? Hell on earth? Or a chance to grow? I will admit; when it was called, I was mixed...

THE REAL SIDE

It's only a few days into this requested self quarantine.  For those of us with kids, it's hard.  For those of us with teens, it's HELL! This is an adjustment for ALL of us.  Yet they think the rules don't (or shouldn't) apply to them.  And for those of us with...
