Friday Morning Inspiration – 1/26/2022 – Marian Griffey

Good morning, everyone ~It’s shortly after 4:00a.m. as I start this week’s Group message. Outside, the 58 degree temps under mostly cloudy/still dark skies blankets the sleeping neighborhood with a promise of pending rain. Barometric pressure is building.  For some of us, that building pressure can be felt in our bones/joints. For others, it’s theContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – 1/26/2022 – Marian Griffey”

Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey

Good morning, everyone ~ How quickly the days melt from the calendar! And yet, how slowly we seem to be moving through this pandemic! The mirror of Time has two ‘faces’ … each with a muddled mind. I begin to speak/write/think in that language I once considered the voice of “old folks”; the one thatContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey”

Good morning, everyone ~ It’s only 1:48a.m. as I start this week’s email. The household is sleeping, the neighborhood is silent, and just for now I can pretend that the whole world is at peace. I’m glad to be awake/experiencing such a momentary good feeling, having easy thoughts in my mind. Each time I wake,Continue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey”

Good morning, everyone ~ Wow! Sixty-five degrees at 2:25a.m. on the 17th day of December!  or ? Or is this just another “is” in a long list of things we need to adjust to?  Speaking of adjustments, the process of adjusting to changes/challenges can be made a little easier by developing a flow chart — either startingContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey”

Good morning, everyone ~ Apologies for getting this out later than usual. My days/nights have been mixed up for several weeks now, and the calendar in my head doesn’t always match the one on the wall. 😯 It has been a rough experience; sometimes more so than others. For weeks now, I’ve been sleeping inContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey – ACPA Facilitator”

Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey

Good morning, everyone ~ I’ve been thinking a lot lately about roller-coasters.  I was married with pre-teen children before I ever rode one. That was a kiddie ride at Disney World. I was fairly proud of myself for making it to the finish line without passing out, screaming, or throwing up.  My sons asked ifContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey”

Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey

Good morning, everyone ~ Five days until the next full moon. “Harvest Moon” — and one of the biggest/brightest full moons of the year. Predicted to appear in fullness 2-3 days before its official girth. By the way the cats in this house and the wildlife outside it are acting, I think the monthly full-moonContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey”

Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey

Good morning, everyone ~ Many thoughts are filling my mind at this early hour (2:00a.m.) on this first day of 2021’s October. From the pandemic to a lifetime of losses/gains, to what “home” really means. Like most others, I have lived in many places. A total of 16 dwellings, across 3 states, over a spanContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey”

Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey

Good morning, everyone ~ It could not have been better had Hollywood orchestrated the arrival — Autumn arrived and with apropos cooler/drier conditions. The climatic change has generated a delightful ripple-effect of “better”  ta-dah! No magic cure, however. I am still dealing with the back pain. Improved weather conditions simply makes the back pain a weeContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey”

Good morning, everyone! At this time yesterday (shortly before 5:00a.m.) the temperature was already 91 degrees. The barometric pressure was intense, and the humidity level so high the concrete was sweating. By 10:00a.m. the sun was too intense for anything but ants/mosquitoes. Our first small-group parking-lot Pain Management session proved to be a test ofContinue reading “Friday Morning Inspiration – Marian Griffey, ACPA Facilitator”
