    2022-03-05 Questions without Answers: Part 2

    Yesterday I was winding my way around the question about why I can’t seem to enjoy life more. Why I put so much pressure on myself for stuff and why I continue to be down about the state of things.  But therein lies the problem. The questions are themselves nebulous. It’s about mood and stress […]

    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 […]

    2021-11-08 Just Another Lustless Monday…

    Welcome to Monday. This morning while my husband was eating the breakfast I cooked him, he asked what my plans were for the day. Just a casual question that might start a conversation if I had some unexpected answer or something I was planning that I’d forgotten to mention previously. I don’t. It’s Monday so […]

    2021-11-06 It has been a while… but why?

    It has been a while since I held to my daily writing routine and I could say it was because I haven’t needed it but the truth is that I’m just using my time in other ways.  What’s new? Plenty. What is blog worthy? Not sure.  I’ve got a new elliptical machine and it’s smooth […]

    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 […]

    2021-01-06 Abbreviated Celebrations and Delayed Considerations

    Monday night I finally ceremoniously graduated from the MFA program I’ve been engaged in for the past 3 years. It was a great experience. I watched, cried, and then popped briefly into the “library pub” zoom after to see who else might be on celebrating. As it turns out, very few people were and I […]

    2021-01-04 MFA Graduation Day 💃💃🎉

    It’s about time. It’s about endings and beginnings, direction, voice, responsibility, and resolution. Or at least it wants to be. Aspiration, experience, and discovering what life is trying to teach you. I mean me. When i say “you” I mean “me”. When I say “we” I also mean “me”. We’re all self centered. Humans. All […]

  • 2021-01-03 Final MFA Res Day ??!… 🤦🏼‍♀️

    2021-01-03 Final MFA Res Day ??!… 🤦🏼‍♀️

    It’s official… I’ve lost track of what “MFA” day it is, what day or the week, and also what year. But I’m not ready for the new year yet and that’s ok.  What? Did I just say that I was not ready for 2020 to end. Well, not exactly. I’m ready for 2020 to take […]

    2021-01-02 Flip the Day… 🤸

    If you flip the script on this day.. this date… the palindrome enthusiasts find a different day just over 10 years ago. 2010-12-02.  Where was I early in December in the year 2010?  I know this was shortly after I met a person who would change the trajectory of my life. By that time I […]

    2021-01-01 Hurry Up and Wait ⏰

    Or.. It’s About Time. Two days ago I started writing about something that dissolved into a rant about titles and hierarchy and how disgruntled I felt after not being recognized for my contribution in an effort I’ve worked on and care deeply about. I ran out of time while writing and was subsequently told to […]
