    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 […]

    2021-12-11 Hunting for Gratitude

    That’s it. I’ve officially lost my mojo. I’ve attended three generative writing events this week and have failed in a big way to write anything (new). Everything is a rehash of something I’ve already written or just plain garbage nonsense. And I think I’m just going to give up trying and see what that life […]

    2021-12-09 Random This and That Thursday ✍🏻💊📖🤷‍♀️…

    Today I’ve been working on a variety of things and it’s mostly good and I haven’t even had to leave my couch and that’s fine with me.  It’s mostly been communications related but I did take a wee break in the middle of the day to join a creative writing session. That was nice though […]

    2021-12-05 Oh.. hello December. When did you get here? 🗓

    Five whole days ago?! Damn!! I think I’m in denial that winter is knocking on the door and Christmas is only 3 weeks away! 😱 I’ve also been hiding away because I’ve been feeling physically unwell for days and I was overcompensating by trying to take things easy on myself. I kind of suspected it […]

    2021-11-25 Happy Turkey Day Y’all!! 🧡🍗🥓🥧🥔🥐🥦🌽🧡

    Yes.. it’s THAT day again and I’m feeling pretty good. Let’s agree to set aside the sketchy origin of this holiday and instead focus on gratitude, spending quality time with people (hopefully), and…. FOOD!!  One meager year ago we were in isolation. No meetups or visits with friends and family and for sure no big […]
