Supreme Ultimate

By Rosie Moore Tai Chi means Supreme Ultimate in the Chinese language. I thought I would be taking Tai Chi lessons a while back but little inconveniences kept getting in the way.

I Dreamed a Dream

By Rosie Moore Are you watching the Olympics? I hope so. Those fabulous, sometimes nerve-wracking, yet thrilling games between the most athletic young people in the world–and some not so young are awe-inspiring. Let’s talk about the ice skaters.  While some of them do have falling spills, most of them jump right up and keep […]

A few words of wisdom

By Rosie Moore The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail. If you don’t have a sense of humor, you probably don’t have any sense. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs. A good time […]
