LOUD WHISPERS: The Old Woman’s Goat

I am writing late this week not only because I have been busy on my husband’s campaign trail,  but because I have been battling a nasty cold. It started with a sore throat on Saturday afternoon.  By Sunday I could barely talk, and it did not help that I had scores of visitors to attend […]

LOUD WHISPERS: Letter To A Former Friend

My dear former friend, I hope all is well with you. I am writing this letter to you very reluctantly, but I believe that with every passing day that I cling to silence, there will be more damage done. I am conflicted because I am not sure if I should address you as ‘Friend’ or […]

LOUD WHISPERS: When There Are No Words

Friday April 20th 2018 was one of the worst days of my life. A very close friend of mine lost her 27 year-old daughter the same day she was burying her 98 year old father. We had all gathered to celebrate the life of a wonderful man who had spent all his life raising generations […]
