Only misery loves company

The Way I See It by DON WEST How many of us, from time to time, go into that mindset of “poor me”? A variety of reasons can take us from a point when we are mentally in tune with the world, thankful for another day, basking in the beautiful weather, enjoying the newness of […]

Living on in our hearts

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I leave this week for my bi-annual trip to New York to see my specialist at Mount Sinai and for this theatre lover, most importantly, to see more plays. My enthusiasm is dampened, however, because my faithful traveling companion will not be at my side. My sweet sister-in-law was taken […]

It’s spring – a time for new beginnings

The Way I See It by DON WEST I saw them this morning and know that spring has arrived. They have probably been there a while, but the buds on the pecan trees just became apparent to me from the distance of which I observe. Spring is a time for new beginnings, a time of […]

Not fooling me!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I have always disliked April Fools’ day. If it would fall on a school day, I would beg my Momma to allow me to stay home. That was never going to happen of course. The reason I dreaded this day was because some of the pranks were embarrassing and often […]

Join my church and unburden your business

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH Sometimes when a law is passed, people only see rights being taken away, not given. I, however, sometimes see opportunities created. Case-in-point: Last week, Indiana Gov.

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD You’ve never known the struggle of having an unusual or unique name until you try to find a personalized key chain in a souvenir shop. Growing up with a name like Aubrey, that’s a struggle that I am intimately familiar with. Although throughout my life, I’ve occasionally […]

Life is what happens while we’re making plans

The Way I See It by DON WEST Recently I have had the pleasure to reconnect with some dear friends from whom I have been separated because – well because, as my friend quipped, “Life is what happens while we are making plans.” He is right, you know. We always have a plan; we plan […]

Pride with prejudice?

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I remember distinctly the day I assigned the novel Pride and Prejudice to one of my advanced senior English classes. Mostly, I heard moans and some unnecessary comments. However, there were a few true readers like myself who seemed excited at the idea of reading this classic Austen novel. Often […]

‘I get a feeling that I should have been home yesterday’

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH When I was 18, I had the opportunity to move to New York City. My airfare would have been covered and I would have lived rent-free for six months while I found work and established residency to receive college assistance. It had been a dream of mine for many […]

The art of miscommunication

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I miss the lost art of spoken conversations that involved the inclusion of intimate interactions. I miss the art of reading a person’s moods and emotions by watching the level of their shoulders, the tension or relaxation in their posture or the way we show all of […]
