Month In Review: July

Trees and lawn in front of my condo against a blue sky.I cannot believe that this is the last day of July. The shorter days have become more apparent as the sun rises later in the morning thus slowing the recession of the tree’s shadows from the front of my building. Oh how I miss the warmth of the bright sunshine during me and Mollie’s early morning walk.

July was a fabulous month. There were cookouts, pedicures, open houses, outdoor concerts, hanging with old friends and meeting new friends. Though I still haven’t made it to the pool yet (I’ve put this on my to-do list for August), once we made it through some pretty nasty weather near month’s end it was pretty decent.

Observing 25 Years of the ADA

…as one of the largest minority groups in the U.S., even with the ADA in place, the struggle for equality for people with disabilities is ongoing. Could it be because the majority of us are not, and perhaps never will be affected by disabilities, that the insensitivity and mistreatment of people with disabilities continues? Continue Reading…

Destination Success – You’re At The Wheel

What differentiates successful people from people who remain in a constant state of failure is perseverance and resilience. Successful people fail, we all fail. It’s how we respond to our failures that determines if or how we will rise. Continue Reading…

I’ll leave you with one more personal observation/question on late summer – what is with the katydids, cicadas and crickets? Is it my imagination or do they get louder towards summer’s end?

Have a wonderful weekend!!
