    2022-05-08 A Million Little Things…

    Lately I’ve been wasting time watching more shows than I normally do. When I say “normally” I mean that normally I don’t watch shows at all unless Jim and I are sitting down for a chill hour of TV in the evening. And when I say “lately” I suppose I mean for the past nine […]

    2022-03-23 One Blog Post to Rule Them All…

    Spoiler alert: This will be my last post for the foreseeable future. And it is a long one.   A lot has happened in my life these past 5 years and much of it has been captured in the virtual pages of this space. I created this blog in 2017 when I was literally on the […]

    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 […]

    2022-02-02 Let’s Do the Time Warp Again…

    Time warp? Where to?  How about oh-two, oh-two, two-oh, two-oh? It’s not too far. Only two years away.  Only two years away? You don’t say!  Yes, Two years from this day was the day little Miss SugarCookie finally got her way.  Which makes today… her two year anniversary!!  That’s right people. I’m celebrating my 2 […]

    2022-01-14 Giving My Brain a Creative Jump-Start ✍🏻

    I’m back at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska city today. I was invited by an MFA friend who is also struggling to get back into writing. The regular routine of life often doesn’t leave enough space for flexing that creative muscle. I know I was just here a couple of weeks ago but that was […]

    2022-01-10 Another Year in the Rearview

    And what a year it was! Am I right??!!  Sometimes when I’m on vacation and I have extra time, I elect to write about how it’s going. If I have a lot of extra time, there are pictures. That’s lovely to revisit later, but who has that kind of time?  I’m usually more about the […]

    2022-01-07 Kind of a White Rabbit Start to 2022 🐇🐇🐇

    There’s something about the end of one year and the start of another that puts me in a tizzy if I don’t have time to reflect on the past and also spend time musing about resolutions and planning my goals for the coming year. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m very goal oriented. Checking things […]

    2022-01-03 It Can Be Whatever You Want…

    I have collected and carry with me a number of sayings. Mantras, if you will that I often turn to in times when I’m in need of grounding, or a reminder about how to live life properly. Now is one of those times and the phrase today is “It can be whatever you want. You […]

    2021-08-18 Mood Math

    It’s been another week. Another 7 days since I’ve put two sentences together on a page, virtual or otherwise. Maybe this is the new me, the new Miss SugarCookie who posts once a week instead of once a day. If I was doing that, I’d want to make sure each week is one heck of […]

    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 […]
