We see things so often we rarely see them anymore

Orlando Eye
i see this iconic ‘Orlando Eye‘ so often i rarely see it.


Recently spoke to a person in the aging and senior adult field.

She said if a person won’t recognize a “problem”, then to that person, the problem doesn’t exist.

i found deep solace in this.

Nothing i say or do will help a Family member because the other person doesn’t, can’t, and won’t see what the rest of us easily see.

Take hoarding for example.

Yesterday was the first time (and it happened several times yesterday) i caught myself saying it to others (non-Floridians) in response to their inquiry and condolences.

We miss you Cooper

Stuffed Teddy Bear and Hedge Hog at Beach


One year ago today, on a Sunday at 6am, Cooper and i drove an hour to the 24-hour emergency vet near Sanibel Island we found using Google.

Twenty-four hours later, Cooper took his last breath.

On last week’s trip i took Jack the Bear and Cooper’s favorite, the Hedgehog.
