Okay, I've gone all political on you.


"Clinton and Trump are two of the most unpopular presidential candidates ever to run in the US race for Commander-in-Chief."



This is a direct quote from this morning's national news broadcast. According to national poles, these candidates barely hold 50% interest of their own political race. If we weren't alarmed before, the red flags should be flying high now.

How do we elect a national leader when our choices are not even good ones?

When The Donald initially made his announcement, I really enjoyed the debacle of him. His comments were (and are) ludicrous. His antics were (not now) humorous. He just added a really needed giggle to my morning. I really believe him to be a diversion tactic, but he is serious. Oops...

Although I am a registered Democrat, Hillary never emitted such emotions from me. She just annoys me. The thought of listening to that voice for the next four years sends non-MS related chills up my spine. West Virginia (my home state) is suffering right now and Hillary doesn't seem to get it that our biggest industry needs all the support it can get. Instead she attacks the coal business and the coal miners that work so diligently to keep our nation's lights on. Hel-lo...When you awake to the sound of an electric alarm clock tomorrow, Ms. Clinton, thank a West Virginia coal miner. The only positive thing about Hillary Clinton is her husband.

It sounds as if I have claimed my constituent in this, probably the biggest and most controversial presidential race in history, but I haven't. I really do not see much of a choice. I admire Bernie Sanders for sticking in there until the end, but really wish he would throw all of that campaign money my way if he is so intent upon wasting it. I could put it to good use.

While all of the hoopla is occurring around him our current president ids planning the rest of his life that probably includes a beach and an umbrella drink. Good for him.

I kind of sound like ll this political stuff interests me, but, honestly, I do not know as much as an informed voter needs to know. I really do not know anything about the health plans that the D and R are proposing, and that has been a BIG concern of mine of late.  How are these candidates and their parties dealing with health care and prescription policy? I am much more interested in this than my rights as a gun owner. And transgender bathrooms? Puh-lease. this is obviously  another rouse to distract the American public from more serious issues. And I do not really care if this statement offends...Common Sense needs to take a stand.

Wow, I have truly taken a Monday morning rant, when all I really wanted to do was wish you a good morning and check on your Random Acts of Kindness campaign.  How is that going for you? Are you gong to add that badge to your sash? I know you are and we will check in with that tomorrow.

For now I am going to turn off the television and find something soothing to listen to...like Megadeath or Zeppelin.

Riding the MS broom

Do you ever feel like the ultimate witchy woman? That is actually a rhetorical question because I know you do. We all do whether we mean it or not. And guess what? We have a right to feel that way. Our brand of broom is a touch one to ride. That is why I truly believe that our supreme master, who ever/whatever that may be, doesn't throw us more than we can catch.

MSers (I read recently that this is an inappropriate way in which to refer to individuals with multiple sclerosis. The source of this judgement obliviously does not live with the disease. MS Warriors are far less offended by such a label than that.) are strong individuals who thrive on finding a purpose, a solution, a balance.

We are dependent on our co-pilot Common Sense. Care Givers are a beautiful addition to our lives, but many MSers (I did it again!) are not fortunate to have someone to clean our broom and dust off the daily spider webs that clutter the  cognitive mess of our brains. I learned that long before MS becam…

Yoga Burn gives new incentive to my morning routine.

I am not one much for online shopping indulgences, but a couple of weeks ago I allowed myself the rare treat of purchasing the Yoga Burn program advertised on Face Book. This morning I completed week one of the monthly scheduled routine and I even took time to meditate under the guidance of Yoga instructor Zoe Bray Cotton.

Laugh if you must, but I really, really, enjoyed the meditation exercise. I realize this is a solitary activity and I will never practice this in front of husband and/or son. 

I felt wonderful afterword, though. So at peace and relaxed. I always knew I was a Zen Goddess at heart.

What I really love about this program is that it "is a comprehensive online yoga course directed toward women only."  The older I get, the more I appreciate anything to do with "for women only". Weird, huh?

Zoe' voice is so very soft and inviting. As she leads me through my morning poses, I really feel as though she is my new morning bestie. Of course, I have only comple…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
