My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Artic Air and Holiday Lights

I have new walking partners on nights when there is no karate lessons. Scott and Max have been a great match for me. Scott used to do a casual walk around the .7 mile block with me. But now we have Max and he loves walking. And Scott loves anything Max loves. We've been going over three miles briskly. My husband walks like a slug (I don't get much excercise), but Scott and Max like to keep a fast pace and sometimes likes breaking into a run. It's been cool in the evenings, like Arctic air, and for us the walk is effortless and I'd go further with more time. Our neighborhood is full of holiday lighting keeping it nicely lit for walking and it's entertaining checking out all the lights.

Max walks on a loose leash with Scott. Tonight Scott tried something different. It was quiet tonight. No cars or other dog walkers. After we got our pace going, Scott took Max off the leash and he STAYED at Scott's heal as we walked and jogged three miles. Scott handles Max so well. Scott feels really accomplished to have such an obedient dog. Now Max gets his reward being all cuddled up on the couch with Scott.

I miss walking with you too. I almost mentioned that in my post. Walking in this neighborhood will be the one thing I miss from this house. I think about you a lot when I am on an evening walk or bike ride.
