My Corner

This coming Thursday, September 10th, would have been our 15th wedding anniversary. As I explained in My Ideal Partner, on September 11th, 2006, while others were commemorating 9/11, I was both anticipating and dreading my late husband Bill’s homecoming from the nursing home where he’d been recuperating from his first stroke.

      Food For Thought

      We all are the Light, automatically. So we really don’t have to go too much further than that. We all have a Light within us – it is the Soul; it is that spark of God, of the Divine, that activates our consciousness.
