Seek First the Questions

So, I never thought I would see a half-dressed man with his arms crossed, standing with his arms folded, in the lane of the interstate in which I was driving at midnight. I was driving home from White Linen Night in the Heights of Houston. It had been a long and intense day. My daughter … Continue reading

White Linen Night in the Heights of Houston

Someone told me, yesterday, I am sunny. That is a pleasant thing to say and I think it is important for each of us to be a light to the world, to the best we can be. I encourage it. Each of us has something like that in us but it is up to us … Continue reading

What is Undone becomes Beautiful Once Again

The owners, Kent and Sharis DeJaynes, have welcomed me … Continue reading

It was a fun and busy summer. I had my kids home with me and that is a truly special memory. I am working in several different ways. As an artist, writer, photographer and painter. As a Realtor with Century 21. I am learning much as I create a career at midlife. It is a year … Continue reading
