    2021-09-05 Working through Control Issues

    This morning I’m thinking about control. I’m thinking about how to truly let go of something I have no control over and more than that questioning why I let something I know is out of my control dig at my insides.  My day yesterday was consumed with taking a car in for an audio upgrade, […]

    2021-07-16 This Blog Post is Not About Toads 🐸🐸🐸

    Jim and his boys brought back about 12 toads from their adventure at Two Rivers State Park and we released them in the stream behind our house. I feel a little bad for displacing them from their original natural habitat but feel confident they can thrive here too. Lots of cool places to burrow and […]

    2021-06-26 After the Storm there is Calm

    I’ve once again navigated the sea of emotions my monthly cycle often laps over me in waves. Gritting my teeth through the frustration of the daily grind, the longing for peace and stillness, and anger when little pricks press into my skin like poorly executed acupuncture.  My mantra? “Wait a few days and see what […]

    2021-05-25 What’s In the News… 🗞

    Happy mask mandate expiry day! It’s been a while since I’ve walked/written/had time to think about the world at large. Life is that way sometimes I guess.  The last time I checked in I was pouring over my stabilizing good mood and trying to decide what, exactly, it was that made the tide turn in […]

    2021-04-11 Exhale and Release

    Yesterday was a doozie. Hold up. This whole week has been kind of off the rails. I’m trying. I really am. And I’m truly doing the best I can.  Yesterday the stress of the lit mag going live (and frankly being over a week behind the original release schedule) got to me and by the […]

    2021-04-01 Hello April! 🌷

    Thank goodness that’s over! March… what an asshole!!  And thank the Universe that the month didn’t go out like a lion and that our furry friend, Punxsutawney Phil, is wrong more than he is right. It IS Nebraska and there’s still a chance that Mother Nature will show some wrath, but my intuition doubts it. […]

    2021-02-26 Dealing With Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde

    I’ve been awake since before 3am. What time I don’t know because I’ve been told looking at the clock is waking up my brain. Ok. So the first time I looked at the clock was about 3:15am. It’s not the light of the clock waking up my brain. I’m pretty sure my brain does that […]

    2021-02-15 Good Gravy!

    Earlier today I was processing the pile of declines in my stack and finally at the end, turned my attention to the maybe pile. I can tell you I don’t read all the writing that gets declined, but I do read all the comments. I can also tell you that if one of our editors […]
