Greetings one and all…. I am composing this blog at 30,000 feet—winging my way back from New Hampshire after four days of presenting and recording programs. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, I am delighted to be homeward bound. But then, I always am. I am such a home body. There is no place like […]
Compassion Fatigue —Running on Empty
Greetings one and all! I hope you are doing well and loving life. Once again, I invite you to take a deep breath, pour a cup of coffee or hot tea, and relax. Today, I want to chat with you about a significant issue for personal and professional caregivers—compassion fatigue. This may be an unfamiliar […]
Collaborative Care Requires a Flight Plan
Greetings one and all! I hope you are doing well and loving life. Once again, I invite you to take a deep breath, pour a cup of coffee or hot tea, and relax. No doubt, you need a little break in the action, right? As a caregiver, I imagine you approach the journey like the […]
Home is Where the Heart Is
Greetings one and all… Recently, I spent two weeks in northwestern Washington state exploring everything that the Pacific Northwest has to offer – mountains, rocky coastlines, and rain forests. It was a fabulous adventure shared with a dear friend. Most days were spent hiking in the great outdoors. Nothing better as far as I am […]

Furthermore, if we are to communicate […]
Cabin Fever: Daily Routine during COVID-19
Greetings one and all…. This morning I am recalling a childhood experience – cabin fever. Cabin fever is defined as the sensation felt after being confined and isolated for an extended period of time. This is a time during which we can become irritable, anxious, and antsy. As a child, this usually happened in the […]
Create Life-giving Connections during COVID-19
Greetings one and all…. I’m writing this on Day 1 after the declaration of the “stay at home” executive order by our governor. If we are to flatten the curve of COVID-19, social distancing is mandatory. Ironic, right? At a moment in time when we need and want each other the most, physical separation is […]
Journey of Aging: Older and Wiser
Greetings one and all… A few weeks ago, I presented a program about aging at numerous locations in Denver. Along with other community organizations and agencies, we gathered to Celebrate Life! My audience consisted of individuals over 60 years of age, many of whom are dealing with serious, progressive diseases and/or disabilities. Consequently, I carefully […]
Are You Feeling Unsettled?
Greetings one and all… Standing at my desk this morning (I love my standing desk!), I am a wee bit unsettled by the events of the past few weeks. The coronavirus. The dramatic drop in the price of oil. And the subsequent volatility of the stock market. Watching the news, I feel as if everything […]
