Having an active imagination and being a lover of the change of seasons, it no wonder that every October I begin to feel a little haunted.

This spring I discovered, to my surprise, that I had an electronic addiction from an unlikely source- my Fitbit. Until my Fitbit Surge battery died and I was temporarily without my fancy watch, I had no idea that the device on my wrist had become an extension of my identity. I tried to deny it but every time I looked to see how many steps … Continue reading My Fitbit And Me
Hi everyone 🙂 Here in the states Wednesday is the 4th of July. Barbecues, parades, and fireworks will abound. For most of us it will be a fun day with miles of red, white, and blue in every direction. One of those days when everyone feels connected to one another just by the fact that we call the USA home.
