Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

Random Sleeping Man

This morning I read a post by Jennifer Boykin. (I follow her blog – she's really quite intuitive in a way I connect with) Her blog name, Life After Tampons, causes a few smiles, but it's the tag line that hits me where I need it to – "Quit your bitching – change your life." . . . → Read More: Random Sleeping Man

All’s Good In The Sandbox

Today I'm not talking about the sandbox that my Bikram yoga and Koko fit club play around in – namely, my body. These two nemesis, with the exception of Tuesday, have played rather nicely all week and I'm hoping this is the beginning of a peaceful coexistence.
