Today,  I realized I hadn’t done a Blog for Lesli’s Story in several months. As time has a way of doing……it seemed days and weeks were gone in an instant, evaporating into the gentle breezes of the summer wind, and going as quickly as the fluttering of an eye. And yet, every second is as […]

Many times in life it is the unexpected that throws us off balance. We are moving through our lives with the ease of a gentle breeze. Or struggles of Herculean challenges. Always moving forward.

Strange Bedfellows

19 May

Creativity and dreaming seem like interesting, but, a very odd pairing of minds and friendship.  Perhaps, they aren’t your first thought of a “couple”…….like Audrey Hepburn  and Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, or even Peanut Butter and Jelly! However, in the quiet moments reserved just for you — this is where these […]
