The Present of Presence

If you're anything like me, you've probably looked at a calendar this past week with wide eyes and a gasp caught in your throat. Somehow, the first half of this year seemed to have lasted a lifetime, but the past few months have truly flown by. I...

As I write this, I am the embodiment of physical and mental health—or, so it would seem—but there once was a time when I was not, and there will inevitably come a time when I am no longer... For a short time, at least.

It's that time of year again – time to break out the warm boots, marvel at the falling leaves, and cuddle up under a blanket (or ten,) praying that the sniffle in your nose was caused by nothing more than seasonal allergies.

2018 is coming to an end. We all know what that means...

New Year's Resolutions are upon us!

I can almost hear the assortment of cheers and groans that tend to accompany this realization. For some, the new year represents a time of evolution, where they can shed their ol...

The Holiday Season is officially in full swing, which means it's time for giving, receiving, and enduring those insufferable family reunions.

Admit it: although this is meant to be a joyous time of year, often times it is far too easy to fall into Negative Nancy's trap...

We all have a thing that we do or use excessively.

There once was a time when I owned nearly four-hundred books.
