    2022-09-28 Destined to Fail… 🩸

    I’m not worried about my health because I’m in great shape for my age. I’ll probably be saying that for the next 30 years. As I age, all the parts of my body that fail will likely be very appropriate for whatever age I might be when that happens. It’s been true for my eyes […]

    2022-05-24 Stacation Sensation…

    Last week I was on Stacation all week as most of the household was away on vacation. I’m not gonna lie.. it was glorious. The first half of the week was crazy-busy and after that took a few more days to wind down, but I did end up finding a good balance with work and […]

    2022-05-21 Sharing the Wheel with the Universe

    Lately when I mount my elliptical machine I’ve also got my fingers poised to press play on my new, totally binge-worthy show, A million little things. However, most days are a struggle to get it to play. Blame the cloud, the internet speed, my outdated iPad, or the mesh wifi I paid a pretty penny […]

    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 […]

    2022-03-04 Questions without Answers

    First things first.. in the exactly one week I’ll be doing my first (and possibly last) ever in-person public reading AND it’s crazy to have been invited by THE KATE GALE, founder and editor of the Los Angeles Review and Red Hen press. It’s the launch/tour for her latest book, The Loneliest Girl, and her […]

    2022-02-26 The World Needs a Sabbatical

    Today I read a tweet that was about the fact that the world continues to crumble and burn yet, here in America at least, society at large continues to press on as normal.  Sure we all continue on as best we can, getting up each day and trudging through it until our head hits the […]

    2022-02-04 Checking In and Checking Out… ✅

    We’re one month into 2022 and it’s a good day to check in on those goals and resolutions. 10 items on my list and 10 things to report on… Read a book a month. Unless you count the winter issue of Rattle, this was a total fail. ❌. I think my problem is not having […]

    2022-01-17 Much Ado About a Monday Status Update… ✅✅❌

    We’re now over half way through the month of January so it’s about time I check myself before I wreck myself.  In other words.. how am I doing on the New Years resolution front?  To be fair I think I only officially declared my set of goals a little over a week ago so anything […]

    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, […]

    2021-12-22 It’s a Numbers Nerding Kind of Day

    Yesterday I let myself become immersed in a total left-brain organizational task. It was very satisfying. I did some folder/file shuffling and a little accounting with a focus on the poems I’ve published to date.  I’m in a numbers kind of mood. I guess that’s what I do when I fail to write. I’ve been […]
