I’ll bet you’ve heard this phrase: ‘Four score and seven years ago’.  And this one:  ‘That the government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.’  These words are part of our shared ‘American’ identity, aren’t they? I recently came across a short film by the acclaimed documentary filmmaker, Ken Burns.  […]






2016 – Don’t Write It Off, Claim Your Blessings!

I saw this on a young woman’s Twitter feed this week: #LoveIsLove.  Her simple words inspired me to write this reflection (and ‘leaping’ exercise) and share it with you……..   No ‘ifs’. No ‘ands’.
