Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – D. G. Kaye Explores the Realms of Relationships | Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

As many of you know, I’ve been writing a monthly travel column at Sally Cronin’s Blog Magazine for the past two years. We’re changing things up this year in my column there and have moved into a new column – The Realms of Relationships, a topic on which I enjoy sharing my experiences in life and incorporating them into bite-sized lessons. I hope you’ll enjoy it! Today I’m reblogging the introduction post over at Sally’s Smorgasbord.


Happy New Year Readers! And welcome to my newest Blog Magazine Column at the Smorgasbord. This year I’m going to be writing here about relationships – The Realms of Relationships. When Sally suggested I might like to write on this topic I was elated as all my books are about things I experienced in life, and I’m delighted to share my insights here with you all. Now don’t worry, you won’t be finding any psycho-babble here, just plain English from a lifetime of experience.

I’ve been a storyteller since I was a young child – never a fibber – not that kind of storytelling. Whenever I’d heard or ‘overheard’ something when I was young, knowing I wasn’t supposed to be privy to, of course I had to tell someone what I’d heard. I hadn’t yet learned that by not telling all, it was easier to earn trust. By the time I was 10 years old, I was solid. Anyone could tell me anything and my lips were and still are sealed. I pride myself on not being a tattler or a rat and learned to keep my observations to myself.

I was an observer of people, and I didn’t have to look much further than my own family’s behavior to learn what makes people tick. What makes some people angry and some always singing? What kinds of things have I experienced to learn the warning signs of trouble? These are just some of the topics I’ll get into, sharing from my own experience, some of the emotions, and how we react to the different relationships we have with people.

Then I’ll add an experience of my own on the topic to validate my findings. And of course, I look forward to discussion in comments.


So, let’s begin. Today’s topic we’ll start with communication. In order to make and maintain healthy relationships and keep them flourishing, not fizzling, respectful communication is essential. It isn’t just our words, but our body language we emote through our gestures, just as our silences do, the vibe we give off. . . please continue reading at the Smorgasbord

  1. Thanks for reblogging Debby and I have put together a page for the new column in the menu with your intro and the link to the rest of the post… will add that link to all the funnies and any other posts…hugsx♥


  2. I like this change, Deb. I don’t travel much so relationships sounds better. Well, to be honest (we’ve known each other a long time), I don’t have many relationships either. Maybe you’ll give me some hints!


  3. Sorry for being late reading the start of your new series, Debby! I still have to use my computer to access your blog posts and my battery is often empty by the time work is done and relaxation has arrived. I’ll leave another comment at Sally’s!!
