    2022-06-16 #1000WordsOfSummer Day 13: Changing the Answer ✍🏻

    As I near the end of this two-week writing experiment I recognize that much of what I have written (the new stuff anyway) has been blog posts. In the beginning, I had this blog down as an option if I got stuck or didn’t want to work on some other project on my list. But […]

    2022-06-15 #1000WordsOfSummer Day 12:Part Two ✍️

    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 […]

    2022-01-04 On Tuesday’s I Take Out the Trash

    I’d love to say I do it for alliteration’s sake because something deep in me is enchanted by the sounds of words that just fit together in my mouth in a pleasing and natural way. But I take out the trash on Tuesday because Wednesday is the day the Man comes to haul it away.  […]

    2021-12-29 In What Universe is it OK…

    … that the answer to the question “Do you like pizza?” is different than the answer to the question “Do you eat pizza?”?! The answer to the question is that in no Universe is it OK (unless you have some health reason not to). I am surrounded by people who can’t eat things. Gluten intolerance, […]

    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 […]

    2021-06-07 Reactive 🩸

    “Reactive” is the result of the COVID antibody test performed by the Red Cross from my latest blood donation. It’s now standard for them to do the test on every donation. The explanation for my reactive result is that I have antibodies consistent with a person who has had the COVID vaccine, but did not […]

    2021-02-17 Having an Out-of-Body Without Ever Leaving My Body

    It’s another random ordinary Wednesday and there’s once again not a single noteworthy thing I have to contribute. Not a thought in my head worthy of writing about for the gazilllionth time.  Late yesterday I ingested some citrus ginseng fizz I bought from a newish acquaintance of mine whose business is selling these Earth friendly […]
