Hey there!

This stream of consciousness is intended to be an unfiltered account of my journey to fight my way to a healthier, happier life. One day at a time, one step at a time, one organically-grown-emotionally-raw blog post at a time…

    This is really just a continuation of what came before. Something of the fleeting notion of free writing, and channeling the spirit of a young girl who teetered between not having a care in the world and carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders.  For her, the world in 1984 consisted of a […]

    Today’s craft talk newsletter was inspiring. The guest writer waxed on about another writer who wrote with joy for writing and, as it seems, a zest for life itself. Its aim was to remind us that we sometimes have to get away from the notion that writing is grueling work. Let’s be honest, it can […]

    Hello Dear Friends. I’ve had many thoughts these past few days, both while shuffling through my regular routine and also enjoying changing that routine to fit in some extra craft time.

And shortly after, quit and closed the document.  Four paragraphs on school shootings and gun violence in America.  Three paragraphs about the family gathering/grad party we had at our house last Saturday.  Two paragraphs about spraining my foot and how that’s changed my […]
