Dandelion Wishes…

We spent a few moments paused in the middle of the Holiday excitement downtown when my daughter looked up and asked if I had a penny for the fountain.  Not the type of person to be superstitious, but also not the type to dash my daughter’s hope that a penny could grant what she wanted, I…

Updated: Merry Freaking Christmas From Tmobile.

Updated: December 30th, 2010: The power behind consumers is INCREDIBLE when we band together. Have received tons of emails with ideas, (keep them coming!) and some of the greatest tweets of all time.  Someone’s tipped the Consumerist, Watchdog and others.  We’ll see what happens.  Ironically, I was going to meet with some of the booth…

Kites

We opened Christmas presents from each other early this morning.  Ava made me two notebook sheets covered with stickers and the letter, “A,” and somehow, she managed to get all the way to Chicago to pick up a box of Fannie May Chocolates.  It’s cliche really, but no gift that I truly cherished, would be…

October 16th, 1981

Somewhere, in a dusty cardboard box, is a manila folder, hidden in the middle of dozens of others just it, remain.  Perhaps it’s dotted with water damage and cursive notes from a well-meaning social worker before and perhaps it’s long been forgotten.  Inside the folder, is a photograph taken in the late 70′s or early 80′s of…

Lyrics To Live By

Possibly one of my favorite songs.  If I had more room, these lyrics would be tattooed all over my body.  Ironically, that’s why this blog was started.  I didn’t have enough room to share the pain, wisdom and joy of life’s greatest experiences.  When I need a reminder of who I am, I turn on…
