I was watching an episode of Poirot. This is one where he teams up with his friend Ariadne Oliver, the fictional famous mystery author (Agatha Christie made her the star of her own set of books btw). One line cracked me up because it so speaks to something I've struggl...

Some days you need to goof off. Hang up the old To-Do List, and binge watch your favorite show (Hello Murdoch Mysteries and Midsomer Murders!). Last week coming down with a bad cold forced me to spend four straight days of doing nothing. I'd been kidding myself before....

I'm a history geek in such a big way. When I started to travel to other countries, did I want to hang on the beach? Nope. Sure I natural beauty. Clear blue or green waters with pristine sands stretching as far as the eye can see. Look out over beautiful vistas of rolli...

I started in new routine the first of the year. My old routine was this breakfast, then working, and then going to the Y to exercise. After the holidays, I was suffering from the urge to keep goofing off. For several mornings I debated why it would actually help me to...

I love writing novels. Kicks my butt because it's hard work, but I keep doing it. So much of what we do is in the "What I have to in order to get what I need", you know like get up every morning and go to a job. As I got older, I got smarter about making time to do thi...

Joseph Emery, born in St. Francisville, Louisiana. He experienced Jim Crow in all its horribleness. He and the rest of the family were forced to leave their home when his father, Luther Emery, Jr., died out in the fields. My grandfather had an agreement to tenant farm...

This is my new theme song for days I'm feeling too tired to write, or just plain discouraged about life in general. Valaida Snow was unknown to me until I saw a Tim Reid documentary about her. The crazy thing is she was a musical genius and famous in her heydey, the to...

I'm working hard, no really. Yeah, I'm cheesing in this picture. But I was on my way to the YMCA for my daily workout. I enjoy exercise, I really do. I feel the difference when I don't keep active. I made friends with the elliptical after a rocky first date! Chyle, my...

More pictures from Belize! I visited Lamanai and it was awesome. By the way, the tour company that I used was Seaduced by Belize. Fantastic guides! I highly recommend them if you ever go to Belize. Also Caye Casa is wonderful. Right on the beach. In fact, the stretch o...
