The Recession Is Like a Fire

For those with a steady income, they watch the fire from a distance. Yes, it burns away at their investments and can cause sleepless nights, depression, divorce, etc. Bad news all the way around. But for those who have no financial cushion, they feel it in their flesh. Some already have third degree burns or worse. When a fire ravages a neighborhood and the authorities demand everyone evacuate their homes, many make the decision to run while others chose to stay and fight, armed only with a garden hose.  Suellen Ocean is the author of Gold River.

It’s Not Just About Money – It’s Also About Mojo

I write and sell books but my mojo goes up just as much when I sell a book with a thirty-cent royalty as it does for one with several dollars. Same thing with the “likes” on facebook or my blogs. Thanks guys! It makes me feel strong when people give me a vote of confidence. Isn’t that why we fix our hair or plant pretty flowers? It’s all about the mojo ….

Someone Should Make a “Guilty” App

Really, guilty or not guilty. We spend way too much energy on unnecessary guilt. What if we had an app that were designed to tell us whether we should feel guilty or not? We could get up in the morning, plug our thoughts into the app and then let go – or not. And before going to bed at night we could tap, tap, tap our worries into the app and it would clear our conscience – or not. And with the evolution of guilty or not technology would come Civil Court usage and eventually Superior Court guilty or not apps. Think of all the admin costs it would save, leaving taxpayers guilt free! Or not.

The Poor Poodle Panicked

Yesterday I took my dog to a clinic for a rabies shot. There was a long line of dogs waiting their turn. One chubby poodle mix could have fit into my purse if he wasn’t so fat. That he was tethered to a jiggling female, same size, same breed but different disposition added to the cartoonish scene. “These dogs are gonna kill me…” I imagined him thinking, “they’re gonna eat me alive” he seemed to whimper louder and louder, while his owner groaned and pulled tighter on the leash. The tighter she pulled the more the poodle turned round and round, creating a twisted mess with the leach of his calmer counterpart. No matter how hard his owner tried to calm him, he quivered, shook and whined louder than any large dog waiting in line. “If I could, I’d take him to the pound,” the owner vented. The little poodle was definitely cowardly compared to the stalwart dogs that patiently waited their turn. Considering how vulnerable the poor poodle was on the end of the leach surrounded by big dogs that could easily take his life, his poodle panic was justified. I grow comfortable knowing the poor poodle is probably back home, curled on the couch, while the owner coddles him, the other poodle rolling her eyes.

Small Town People – Are They Happier?

One thing about small towns is that everybody knows everyone else’s business – that seems to be the biggest complaint, but after that is acknowledged what’s left behind are plenty of pluses for living among a low population. Your universe is smaller so you can be somebody. The people who keep our lives running, the local cement guy, the fireman, the horsewoman, even the lady who works at the laundry can all be celebrities and well-respected because in a small town, where everyone knows one another, respect is gained for honesty, friendliness, humor, loyalty, good business practices and all the other positive attributes that come with a job well-done. I’m not saying that small town feel doesn’t present itself in the city as there are some neighborhoods or “villages” even in New York where it does, but there is nothing like the familiarity and comfort coming from knowing your neighbors and townies so well you literally trust your most precious possessions with them – your babies when you run to the store.
