If we had a chance to plant something for the future, what would it be? Our spring weather has been erratic this year. Still, in our neighborhoods, locals are at work cleaning up their gardens, trimming bushes, seeding lawns, and planting annuals. Colorful pansies are one of the favorite blooms found around borders, mailbox posts, and up walkways. ...
      How do we embrace available technology to connect? If you’re like me, you may not be aware of all the possible technological tools available to counter the “disconnect” we are experiencing these days. We may not feel savvy enough, but it is possible to learn something new every day, if we choose. Our connectedness has been forc...
Spring’s always been my favorite season. It brings warmer weather with occasional cool days and winter storm surprises in most of the US areas I have lived. We can’t fully exchange our winter clothes for spring attire, because we are being teased about the real changes until the summer comes along! I actually enjoy this erratic season. Spring wakes...
I just spent almost 2 hours singing my heart out on the front porch with my 1976 Ovation Legend (guitar). An occasional neighborhood walker stopped (at a distance) to listen or strike up a conversation. Otherwise, I mostly entertained myself. Either way, it gave me a needed warm up/practice and was entirely a joyful experience! Everyone’s aware (or...
While we wait out the effects of Corona Virus, things are getting more and more restrictive. There are fewer places to go if we want to leave our houses. Many who can, are working at home. Kids are out of school. Everyone’s already a little stir crazy. Right? Though we probably have a year’s worth of projects on our “to do” lists, maybe we can chal...
While the media continues to report details about our current pandemic, the future outlook seems uncertain. We’ve been instructed to limit many of our activities, and find ourselves guessing about worst case scenarios.   It’s human nature to be frightened about the unknown, which causes further fear, panic, hoarding, isolation, and hopele...
With all the newscasts/social media posts regarding Corona virus, stock market dips, presidential elections, (plus our everyday natural disasters, robberies, murders, and people who do stupid things) – a girl – or anyone - could get depressed!Just the other day, I saw a Facebook post suggesting we rate our level of worry (from 1 to 10) about the im...
My name is Paula C Snyder. I am not a medical doctor or PhD. My college Bachelor’s Degree shows a major in Psychology. (I use it on myself to stay sane).   I am a vocalist, musician, songwriter, artist, and motivational speaker with fairly equal right and left brain function. I am mature (after ripening for years), and experienced (plenty...
If you are like most people, as the end of the year approaches, you begin to formulate New Year's Resolutions.  Gung ho!  Everything sounds WOW on paper.  Raising the bar, you vow to create more, more regularly, spend 1 hour writing a day, or create 5 pair of earrings tomorrow.  Publish an album of music this coming year!  ...
