Are You Kidding?

by Carol Hess on April 11, 2012

Are you kidding, Carol?  Who the hell are you these days?  I don’t recognize you. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!  That’s the sound of complete and utter frustration with myself.

The Race of Your Life

by Carol Hess on December 30, 2011

A Late Bloomer

by Carol Hess on October 20, 2011

I took the concept of being a late bloomer to a whole new level.  I spent most of my considerable number of years on this planet not even knowing there was such a thing as blooming.  I just knew I wasn’t all that happy.  You don’t know what you don’t know. Then, when I finally […]
