About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Why? Good question. Because each of them gives helpful information about why, what and how to make little changes. And they celebrate little choices that add up. Each of these films have moments of horrific reality that forced me to make a series of choices. Including an invitation for me to choose what I'd do with the information I'd been given.

Is every bit of information absolute truth? Do each of these films have an agenda? Those are details you'll have to wrestle with when and if you choose to see them. I'm not going to be an activist any time soon. I'm still trying to figure all this out and what the word "healthy" means to me. And, there are different definitions of that word. But. I can't not not share what I've discovered. Hence the changes and different look at Scrambled Dregs. Writing? Still important? Yes. Book reviews? Still important? Absolutely.There has been no change, necessarily, in my loves, likes and drives, but there has been a shift in my priorities and my time. 

If you are on the fence, curious, wondering or apprehensive about your food intake or choices, invest a few hours into looking into what these films have to say. If not, just keep dropping in every once in awhile, you'll never know what you might find here. I hardly ever do. :  )
