Fight or surrender 

For the past fourteen years I have had a rare blood disorder.  

Sometimes it is in remission and life sails along. Sometimes it’s an annoyance and sometimes it’s dangerous. 

Recently I had to step away from visiting my favorite place on earth, Lake Tahoe, because my health was too precarious.  

Logical choice though a bit heart breaking. 

These are the moments when you get to choose to fight or surrender and sometimes surrendering means you get to fight another day. 

Eat desert first

Happy places


Sometimes all it takes is one second 

To discover a happy place

To fall in love

With a place 

 And it can stay with you forever 


Even on the cold and lonely nights

To keep you warm and happy
