    2022-06-28 A Day In The Life

    Today’s experiment, after waking up at 4 AM and only four hours of sleep (I was revising poems till midnight), is data mining a “day in the life.” It’s a little research project I dreamed up after having not just one or two run-ins with my errant brain and its memory flaws, but a whole string of seemingly unconnected instances.

    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 […]

    2022-02-13 The One About Memory and Time. And Rocks… 🪨

    I think about time quite a bit, and about memory too. I think about an hourglass glued to the table; the lyric of a song stuck in my mind for a lifetime. I can’t escape the curve of it, the gravity, the sensation of something you can’t really hold on to that’s slipping away. I’ve […]

    2021-09-12 Twenty Years

    I didn’t write anything yesterday. I didn’t spend too much time thinking about nine eleven either except little discussions and rememberances that popped up in the course of conversations with Jim. Where he was. Where I was. How he had a one year old son and I had my first child on the way. He […]

    2021-08-11 Happy Birthday Erika 🎂

    Days like today I think about all the memories I’ve made with friends who are not in my life anymore. A baseball game I went to for a new friend’s birthday when I was 12 where we laughed so hard (at what I don’t recall) we cried. Years of pre-Christmas baking sessions and ornament exchanges. […]

    2021-06-05 Cliches About Time are Cliche Because of Their Truth

    The push and pull of all these days blurs into a gravity that begs to be let go of. Time is relative. Emotions are relative. Thoughts are relative. The next thing can only be measured against the last and the moment in time that lingers longer than it should, repeating itself in the mind, becomes […]

    2021-02-21 Sunday Status Funny Money 🐹

    It’s Sunday and I’m checking my stats. How did I do meeting my goals?  For sleep I achieved my goal 6 of 7 nights.  Healthy eating.. 4 of 7.  Mood.. 4 of 7. Meditation.. 2 of 7.  Exercise.. 6 of 7.  Most of this looks good but feels a bit like funny money. Like you […]

  • 2021-02-19 The One that Wanted to be About Sex but Couldn’t Make it Past First Base…

    I looked into the salty air thinking about my irritation over an email I just read and said to myself “it’s time to get serious.”  Then I looked at myself in the mirror from the treadmill and said “NO!” I actually pointed at myself as I said, “NO! NOT THIS TIME.” I’m not going to […]

    Being “stranded” at home yesterday was good. I felt like I was really productive and balanced my time well between chores, GLR work, and the other selfish activity I had on my to-do list which was archiving content from my laptop on my external hard drive and reorganizing the drive.  I started with my music […]
