Musings from a 40-year-old

What does the world look like once you are in your 40’s? Pretty much like it did, for me, in my 30’s. Granted, it just the matter of a few weeks of comparison … But aside from that, one can take stock of their dreams and consider what they haven’t accomplished yet. That’s something I’ve…

Mish Mosh of PMS and Allergies

Narnia Soundtrack and Toys

“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe” opens tomorrow. I first read the whole series in my early teen years … I think I was 13 in actuality, my first read-through, my Aunt & Uncle bought a boxed paperback set for me as a gift. I don’t know how many times…
