Elizabeth II is Queen of the UK and the other Commonwealth realms.

Queen Elizabeth turned 92.

I know of no single formula for success. But over the years I
have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal and
are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their
efforts, talents, insights, enthusiasm and inspiration to work together.

Wake-up Image

I was looking at the white knight in a chess game.

It was more ethereal than real. Not sure what it means for me.

The Knight represents the awakening of the spiritual initiate acting in the world. It moves by leaps of intuition along the sides of a right triangle. It alternates between white and black squares with each move, therefore, engaging the head and heart in each action. Only a knight or a pawn can initiate the first move of the game. The knight can make a move that even the Queen cannot make.

Saying Goodbye to Scandal and Homeland

I watched both series from the third season on never becoming emotionally invested in the melodramatic characters. It was political intrigue and amazing performances that held my interest as both shows come to an end within 10 days of each other.

The series finale of Scandal last night did not disappoint. The best way to watch it was to continue on with Jimmy Kimmel who dedicated his show to not only the cast and finale but to the humor connected to the political dramas that are playing out in real life today which often appear as scripted. Trump and Rudy Giuliani ... really?

I love cold weather as long as it doesn't get too cold.
Temps Wednesday were in the high 50s but windy.
I met many people this winter who also prefer the cold.



The breeze in my hair ... Being 75 can be very cool.
