Some Thoughts with Charlotte…

January 12, 2020 Sunday 1949

Did you see that Full Moon? My it was a handsome moon. I trust all of you were spared any wicked weather and that this finds you all well. This coming week is a bit daunting for me, let’s see, I have a full work week ahead of me, only one day off unfortunately, so a 6 day work week, multiple appointments after work, still feverishly planning my son’s upcoming graduation party from the Austin Police Academy, hmmmmm,……… well that’s all I can think of right now. But I get to travel to see my son and kiddos soon and all my extended family will be there, so it will be a wonderful long weekend in a few weeks, so even though I am very busy, I have a whistle in my step.

My first resolution/intention for January 2020 was to meditate for 25 minutes every day, well I only accomplished that one day last week . It was, tbh, an exhausting week. I worked a BUNCH, I mean a BUNCH of hours both Monday and Tuesday, secondary to folks around me having the flu, and luckily for me I remain unscathed! Here’s hoping my luck holds out. Reassembled and with continued resolve, I am propelling last week’s goal into this week as well, before setting another one

I hope you enjoyed the show on time; I certainly received some interesting stories from listeners sharing their own experiences with time. This next week’s show, Saturday January 18, 2020, we will examine “Forever Love.” My parents are preparing to celebrate their 60th Wedding Anniversary this month, so we will consider love through the lens of unconditional and forever!!!!! So please join me Saturday evening, I will share some personal stories about my life with these two amazing folks and you will know more about why I am the way I am! I would love to hear from you!

Some of Charlotte’s Favorite Things………

The book I am currently reading-

The Wonder of Lost Causes by Nick Trout

Looking for something different?


All things food and drink-

One of my favorite places to eat in Fredericksburg, Texas is Sozial Haus. My favorite yummy there is the Pepperoni Explosion pizza, which is certainly not a vegan option but sometimes a girl needs a slice of pepperoni pizza! They have daily specials that are in a word, amazing! The outdoor seating area is pet friendly and the place to be and be seen. Sozial Haus is located in the heart of Main Street Fredericksburg, easy parking, great staff, great vibe and one of my all time favorite places to sit, share a bottle of Texas wine, people watch and read a good book while letting an afternoon simply slip through my fingers.


Take the very best care, affectionately, Charlotte

Well here we are, the first full week of 2020 is upon us. What will you do with this, our gift, a new year, a new decade? The first show of 2020 we focused on “Who are you?” Well, did you have an answer? Have you considered ways in which you want to honor this gift of time that you’ve been given? I have.  My intention and promise to myself is to be truly, deeply and completely in every moment I am given. I am a planner, and daydreamer, I can daydream inside of a daydream, inside of a daydream. Think blowing a bubble inside a bubble inside a bubble etc. I can plan and daydream a day away without effort, only to look back and consider what I missed right in front of me, while I was looking down the road.

The first four months of 2020 are jam packed for me and my family! So I am breaking these first four months into smaller pieces, i.e. taking one month, one day, one moment at a time. The month of January I am focused on freeing my true self, and giving my best, and my time, to family and friends. My first step this week is to meditate for 25 minutes every day. Wish me luck! Taking time for myself to quiet my thoughts, calm my nervous system and focus on my thoughts, well……. my track record is not good! So here’s to making this change!

So now that we have begun this decade by asking ourselves last night who we are, and who we want to be, on next week’s show, Saturday January 11, 2020, we will examine “Time.” Friday January 10, 2020 @ 1321 CST is the first Full Moon of this decade, the Full Wolf Moon, so go out and celebrate the first Full Moon of this New Year and then join me Saturday evening as we travel through and examine time. I will be sharing a very personal story about time that might surprise you. After hearing this story, you’ll know why I believe and know, that time is malleable.

I would love to hear from you and what your thoughts are as we collectively step toward this gift of time, this New Year, welcome 2020!

Take the very best care, affectionately, Charlotte
