Eulogy for a Veteran
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.

Taking a moment to honor your Military members who passed – friends, family and unknowns.


The most courageous act is to think for yourself. Aloud. ~ Coco Chanel

Take a moment to have a chat with a strong Woman in your Life for International Women’s Day.


Honor to Labor

For those who step into traditional roles and those who step beyond the narrow lines.
Thank you for your labors
You are keeping the World running in strange times

Sometimes the job calls for a bit more…
