I have been called strong


I miss my bike.  I really do.  I can’t ride my F8 or any bike for that matter. This was my last and almost first real ride since I busted my tibia.  About a month ago I went out and it was like a breath of fresh air.  My last 2 years have been challenging […]

It’s been awhile…


I haven’t posted for a while mainly because I am still not riding.  Into my 8th month of recovery from my motorcycle accident back in October 2015, I am regaining strength and flexibility day by day.  Yet, as hard as I have worked especially since March 21st, 2016-the day I became weight-bearing, I feel I […]

50 is just a number & Helicopter

50 is just a number & Helicopter


April 5 – 6 2016 In February I turned 50, half a century old.  I remember when I was younger thinking 50 was old, yet when I look in a mirror…I don’t see an old woman.  Weird, I see someone who has been through many trials and tribulations but not weathered, not old, just living.

WELCOME 2016!

WELCOME 2016!


Wishing the world peace and health all year-long!
