My mom was born in Ireland, and I spent most of my childhood summers there. It was like a second home. I loved being surrounded by my family and the culture. And perhaps it’s the influence of the Irish folklore I grew up with, but there’s a special place in my heart for four-leaf clovers.… Continue reading Feeling Lucky?
In a previous blog, Got Change?, my break in consistent blogging was blamed on writer’s block and rebellion; I just needed a change. Now I have a new reason! Well, in all honesty, it’s not really new…it’s almost 21 years old. Writing these blogs has inspired me to work on a book that I started… Continue reading The Finish Line

With just 1:12 minutes left of Super Bowl LIII, that field goal clinched the win for the Patriots against the Los Angeles Rams. My heart is in Southern California, but my roots are in New England…don’t… Continue reading Goal!!!
