Thoughts From a Hospital Waiting Room

Picture of Lynda-Ross VegaI spent two days this week in the hospital with my sister. One of her hips got old before its time and just completely wore itself out.

Getting involved in a story with interesting characters that develops over time is an enjoyable distraction from life's daily challenges.

This past February, I celebrated my 70th birthday. During our family gathering, the term “New Norm” became center stage of our conversation.
