I feel compelled to try new things this year, and I debated between getting a nose piercing or a tattoo. I decided on the tattoo for two reasons:1. I'm not crazy about my nose...it's crooked, probably because of my cleft lip and subsequent surgeries.2. I'm a word person, and I liked the idea of expre

My list included things like valuable time spent with family and friends, but it also included things like organization, getting the house in order, getting my high school senior to become more i

True confession: Even though I'm an avid traveler, I haven't always pored over the foreign news in the paper...especially the news that depresses me. So until a few years ago, I was ignorant about the situation in the Holy Land...and what I knew was heavily biased toward Israel, fed to me by the one-sided
