Sense of Direction: Joy

Once again, Friday’s post about having a sense of direction proves to be the most difficult to write.  It is, as I said before, something I am obviously spending a lot of time thinking about, but I am feeling pretty private and don’t want to spill all those beans all over this blog.  So if… Continue reading Sense of Direction: Joy

Sense of Adventure: Saying YES

One of the things on my list of 40 things was to say YES more (right after saying NO more! Different reasons…).  Saying YES (to me) means being open to spontaneous adventures and experience and doing things outside my comfort zone. Sunday my friend Sarah texted and asked if I’d like to come over and… Continue reading Sense of Adventure: Saying YES

Sense of Humor: The Angry Dance

I went to see Footloose opening weekend – the revamped version – and it was good!  Really good!  It was a lot of fun to sing along and tap our feet to the beat of the familiar tunes, watching a familiar storyline and some incredible new dancing.  I laughed, I cried.  It was a good… Continue reading Sense of Humor: The Angry Dance

Sense of Self: What I know for sure…

I don’t like to be scared. I never have.  I have vivid memories of older cousins creating haunted houses in the basement before Thanksgiving dinner (what’s up with that? couldn’t let go of Halloween?) and participating in hay rides with ghost stories and watching scary movies… none of them enjoyable to me.  I would participate… Continue reading Sense of Self: What I know for sure…

A Sense of Connection: LaoTong

Almost two weeks ago I went with my friend Cindy to see the movie “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.”  We are both Lisa See fans and read this book in preparation of seeing the movie this summer… and then thought we’d be renting it (ala “Jane Eyre”) but it came to Rochester with an… Continue reading A Sense of Connection: LaoTong

Sense of Direction

Well, it’s Friday and I blogged five days in a row.  I didn’t know if I’d get it done today, as I really feel under the weather.  It’s just a head/chest cold but makes thinking clearly a task. So all I’m going to say about a Sense of Direction is that it is something that… Continue reading Sense of Direction

Sense of Adventure

The fourth Satellite Sisters’ sense is adventure.  It’s hard to say if I’m adventurous or not… I don’t like to take risks with my life, so I will never climb a mountain or ride a motorcycle over parked school buses or run with the bulls in Pamplona or scuba dive with sharks.  I have gotten… Continue reading Sense of Adventure
