    2020-07-04 Cheers to New Poetry and Spending Quality Time this 4th of July 🌟

    I’m leading with the poem I wrote yesterday instead of including it as an afterthought at the end. The tag line? “Look Ma, it’s a Love Poem!!” Driving Toward Sunset on July 2nd Yesterday was a pretty good day. I had two good virtual catch up sessions with friends, I attended a poetry workshop where […]

  • 2020-02-14 Kauai Day 4 – Aloha from Our Lanai in Hawaii 🌴

    2020-02-14 Kauai Day 4 – Aloha from Our Lanai in Hawaii 🌴

    My preference, of course, would be to write a little every day. I like to record the memorable moments and some of the great experiences I’m having. However, I’ve opted not to sacrifice any time thus far, doing things and seeing things for sitting down to write. It’s a good choice I think and hopefully […]

    2019-11-22 A Love Letter for Today

    A Love Letter for Today   My words are a love letter. To love is a verb which doesn’t always mean the same thing as it did the day before. The bible says that it is patient and kind but i find more often than not, it can also be lonely and wanting and hopeful […]

  • 2019-07-21 MFA Res Days 8 and 9 – Tough Choices

    2019-07-21 MFA Res Days 8 and 9 – Tough Choices

    The last two days I’ve felt less anxiety and less pressure, mostly, yet still inspired by so many shiny objects. On the downhill slide, the back of the back 9, the preparing for a return to reality from the dream, I find that the most difficult task is the necessity to chose between things, people, […]

  • 2019-02-15 V-Day Wrap Up and Other Random Thoughts

    My mind is full of random thoughts today and I’m not sure where to start or what’s worthy of words. Yesterday I was all about thinking about the languages of love and I find it ironic that words are so important to me but the category of “words of affirmation” scores so low with me. […]

  • 2018-04-25 I’d Rather be Lost In Lost In Space

    I used to go to the gym in the evenings all the time. Its 8:15Pm now and I can’t help but feel I’d rather be anywhere else but here. I’m also not feeling very inspired by anything either. Damn. I just wanna go hang out with JS and talk and watch a tv show or […]

  • 2018-02-22 No Apologies, No Regrets

    Why does it take so long in our lives to get to the point where we care less about what everyone else thinks and more about what we think? I look at my teenage daughter and can feel her persona covered in things she has picked up from caring about what other people think. It’s […]

  • 2018-02-14 The Gift Of Time

    This poser holiday is even dumber than Groundhog Day. Can I get an Amen from all my fellow V-day haters? Yet.. it’s a thing I can’t help but think I would be totally excited about if I was in a romantic relationship. /sigh What do we do? We kill a bunch of flowers. We boost […]

  • 2017-10-12 On the Flipside

    Today I became incredibly sucked into thinking about my past for an hour or more. I was completely distracted from what I originally wanted to be doing with this time and now my time for doing it is running out. I’m glad that it happened, but at the same time, I need every hour of […]

  • 2017-04-12 Waking Up Wednesday Wondering Why

    I’m so glad Tuesday is over. I’m so glad it’s Wednesday now and I’m waking up and get the chance to start over. Even more than that, I’m glad I had 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep. It was dream-filled sleep, but I’ll take that any night over waking up at 2 or 3 or 4 […]
