    2022-09-15 Sometimes When It Rains, It Pours

    Sometimes it’s all dried up, and there’s nothing to say. And sometimes, even though my creative writing is non-existent, the other words are just begging to come out.  I guess you could call this post a continuation of the one I finished yesterday. When I was done writing, I believed I had said all I […]

    2022-09-14 The Daily Pep and Thoughts on Quitting

    The Daily What?  The Daily Pep. One of three podcasts I’ve recently taken to listening to on a regular basis. This holy trinity of podcasts includes “Chasing Life” which comes out once a week and is 10-60 minutes on a random topic like dreaming, playing in adulthood as you did as a child, and social […]

    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 […]

    2022-03-17 Something Only Slightly More than Nothing 🍀🍀🍀

    I am so low energy today. Rough night and you know, lately I’ve been pushing hard physically and am tired from that too.  I’ve also been trying to think about what might be a worthy blog post and just don’t have it.  I know, I know. When has that ever stopped me before??! 🙃 What’s […]

    2022-03-13 So Much Next Level Going On

    It’s been another hot minute, you know I know. But I’ve been attending to other duties as assigned and this week it was all about hanging out with the founder and managing editor of Red Hen Press and the LA Review. It was/is a big deal and personally a fantastic experience.  What an opportunity to […]

    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 […]

    2022-02-23 So.. What’s New With You?

    I know, I know… I missed “Two’s day” It was everywhere, though so I didn’t want to be cliché. That’s a lie. Anyone who knows me knows I’m not afraid of being cliché; I embrace it like bad poetry. 😜 I am sad I missed posting yesterday and having the opportunity to type that date […]

    2022-02-16 The Newest New Shiny

    It seems like I get the most satisfaction when I’m working on a new project that I’m excited about. I get distracted by a new shiny and somehow that becomes my whole goal in life. I forget what was important yesterday… and pour my heart into what’s new.  I think that’s only human.  Working on […]
