Pixie Passed Today, Our 14 1/2 year old Golden Friend

Pixie died peacefully today after an amazing life with our family. She was adopted at age 2 when this photo was taken. She was found after wandering the highways of Florida for several months. She was transferred to a golden adoption center in Pa and we were the lucky ones that brought her home.

Chaos, Change, a groundhog and Maggie Smith

I just saw the movie, The Lady in the Van with Maggie Smith and it was quite good.  I had been looking forward to seeing it since last fall when I saw the first trailer.  It was worth the wait. The movie was a great example of how a crisis and chaos can  happen and how we are forever marked by it.  This is what happened in the movie and certainly what happens in life.  However, we can often control the outcome by holding ourselves as observers and reducing our emotional reactions.
