“Life is not the way it’s supposed to be… It’s the way it is…
The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.” ~Virginia Satir
The only constant in life is change. So experiencing and adapting to it is what Janet feels life is about. Since November of 2010, she has been sharing her experiences and her wisdom with us, first thru her blogs, and now with her podcasts as she can no longer [...]
There’s nothing like adversity to break patterns and this past year has certainly required me to break a lot of mine. Were it not for the fact that I have so much company, I suspect I’d be inclined to feel sorry for myself. My malignant brain tumor has [...]
The two days of precision Gamma Knife radiation on Nov. 29th and 30th focused on the left side of my head were a bit easier on me than the biopsy surgery. However, they caused some inflammation that even further compromised my vision and the functioning of my mouth, [...]
On Nov. 14th we went to Spokane, Washington, for a PET Scan and brain biopsy, which brought good news and bad news: the tumor in my brain had not metastasized beyond my head but it is a melanoma that is spreading quite rapidly and I was feeling the [...]
Just in case there is someone out there looking for my blogs on a weekly basis, I want to apologize for missing last week. My body had other plans for me, for I’ve been both [...]

On the topic of eternal life, for Father Charlie it was not a question but a reality. We have life eternal whether we like it or not. However, it is not just something to [...]
In your prior blog you wove together some quite disparate pieces of information that led to a conclusion that is anything but mainstream, so I suspect readers may be wondering where and how [...]
What have you learned from pulling together your story about your parents?
It has revealed to me that reaching a greater understanding of them has [...]
About ReflectionsThe idea for the title “Janet’s Reflections” probably came from the same place all ideas come from: Somewhere Over the Rainbow! I usually get inspired in the wee hours of the morning when I can’t sleep, and this time, the more I listened, the more I liked it. After all, reflections aren’t just about thoughts, but also about mirroring: cause and effect; action and reaction. Ultimately, what defines the conscious me if not how I interact with the world around me in this mirror-like fashion? There’s so much more to me than I’ve been willing or able to see until now, so this opportunity to share my new found perspective is going to be fun and exciting. Hope you’ll join me.
