One of the reasons I decided to start my own Website was to include a blog. I have blogged on and off on OTConnections which is a professionally oriented social media site for occupational therapy practitioners and clients. My OTConnections blog can be found at the following link:
I will continue to blog about occupational therapy topics, but sometimes the mind just has to go in another direction and not all topics are appropriate for OTConnections.
2016 has been a year of loss so far of personal friends and icons like Prince. It got me feeling a little nostalgic and I decided that it was time to replace the music that I have on my iPod shuffle that I use on the treadmill or when "wogging" around the Rice University Running Trail. BTW "wogging" is a fast walk, just short of jogging that comes about after 38 years of pounding on the knees. As I approached my fifties my running evolved into jogging and then.........wogging.
So I spent part of the morning gathering 80's music for a new playlist. Something where I know every word and can sing along (no need to thank me Rice University Runners!)
