Recipe. According to Encarta, “a list of ingredients and instructions for making something.”  The thesaurus offers the alternate terms, “formula, guidelines, directions, steps, technique.”

And what is the “something” we are aiming for here?  Simply a life of robust good health in every important area–spiritual, physical, cognitive, and emotional.

To that end I offer inspirational real-life stories about PEOPLE OF FAITH AND COURAGE; recipes meant to fuel your creative inclinations and your healthy body in MUSINGS OF A MIDWESTERN FOODIE; and ADVICE FOR LIFE from the perspective of those who have lived it to maturity.  (Click on the green category tabs at the top of this page to learn more about each section.)

Have a taste and see what you think.  If you like what we are serving up, please tell your friends.

About the author:

I am Sue Anne W. Kirkham, a self-described late-bloomer with a degree in written communications (attained at age 36) and an intense desire to share life’s lessons and make up for lost time.

With my husband, Jack, I transplanted myself to Texas several years ago. Love the people, hate the summers, so I’ll be re-planting myself in Minnesota soon. (Love the people, hate the winters. Can’t win.)

I lost my beloved partner in life in December of 2016, and I write about that here, too.

Meanwhile, I spend my days refereeing a small but delusionally-brave mixed-breed pup and her larger, equally-territorial feline housemate and trying to stay relatively sane as I take on the challenge of publishing a full-length book. (See “My Books” tab.)

Glad you stopped by. Do come again. The archives are full of fun and enlightening stuff—if I do say so myself, as I apparently just did!

    Inspired, in part, by your shameless soliciting and upon referral from my dear friend, Janet, who never leads me astray, I clicked on your website. I loved your blogs which mirror many of my own ponderings which I could never articulate so brilliantly.
