no more laryngitis

Back in February I “broke” my blog. It has been down until now. It may seem like I lost my voice; In some ways I had, yet I also kept writing without opportunity for “public consumption”. I am slowly posting some of the thoughts and posts I wrote over the last 6 months. I will…

Slow Motion

Random thought of the day: Maybe because I am a sports fan, maybe because I feel like we are moving in such a fast pace, but every once in awhile I wish we could rewind and watch some things over in slow motion. Sometimes I want to rewind to rewatch some spectacular catch or homerun…

Jack

This is a silly thought I had – why are carved pumpkins called “jack-o-lanterns”? So, I looked it up with the magic of the internet. It seems that it comes from the 1500s when all those stories, fairy tales, nursery rhymes and fables were being told and nearly every little boy was named Jack! Jack…
