This clock hangs in my office where I can see it all the time. It really has nothing to do with time, or time in the normal sense of the word. Like most things in my life, it is about the messaging. What can I say, I am at heart, a hopeless communicator.

This clock is even more special because it was  birthday gift from my girls. The ones who know I am not a big fan of celebrating my birthday on a good year, but on a not so good one it was sort of out of the question.

Luckily I opened this when I was alone. And they were right. They are my guides. They know that when I said – or worse – believed that I was ok, it was not remotely true. But now, I am reminded by them everyday that…







Just a different kind of ok.

I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions, but this year I made one: to blog again. Because here is where I see the world in its most ‘ok’ form; where I share the absurdities and observations that we all see, but I make a point to acknowledge. For no other reason than to entertain, to ground, to lighten up… to be ok.

Because sometimes we need to laugh… to the point of tears.

Welcome back everyone. Wishing you all a very happy new year filled with good things and the strength to deal with the not so good ones.

    Happy New Year. After getting my annual WordPress stats for the year – a total of ONE post in 2013 – I’ve also decided to ramp up my blogging for 2014. My “resolution” is to try for one post per week! Good luck to you…and me!
