  • 2018-10-21 The How-Is-It-Sunday-Again-Already Status

    Remember a few short months ago when I was all like “I love Monday’s, Monday’s are great! Monday is one of my favorite days of the week!”?! Yeah, I hope you didn’t believe those lies. I guess the more you come to treasure your weekends, the more it seems to go too fast, the more […]

  • 2018-08-17 French-Toast Friday

    A few days ago my darling daughter initiated a game called “get to know you better”. In the game we take turns asking each other questions that reveal more about our character and through doing that we get to know each other better. There are two amazing things about this.. 1. She’s 16 and most […]

  • 2018-08-15 OMG It’s August

    I know, I know.. it’s been August now for more than two weeks but it’s going by so fast. I’m not prepared for the end of summer, I’m not prepared for both my kids attending high school, and I’m certainly not prepared for the other things coming up in the next two weeks. It’s gonna […]

  • 2018-08-02 Web Form Hell

    I want to write a little bit about my day today which includes a visit or my MD, a full set of work, and meeting up with my Texas peeps where they will meet Jin for the first time. Incidentally, the Meetup is also a housewarming party for our mutual friends Mike and Amy who […]

  • 2018-07-11 Preparations

    I’m listening to what the Universe is DJ-ing up for me today. A shuffle from the master play list. Add a little caffeine and see how far that gets me. Yeah, I know, I know, I just swore off caffeine a few days ago. You think I would have learned from past experiments that’s a […]

  • 2018-07-10 T-Minus Four Days

    Four more days until Summer Residency for my MFA starts (Masters of Fine Arts in Writing) … woohoo. It’s a ten day retreat and break from the norm with a full itinerary of lectures and workshops and other events. This will be my second Residency and the best part about that is that the unknowns […]

  • 2018-04-19 The Time Puzzle

    One of the hardest things to do, especially for someone like me who thrives on routine, is recognize when something is not working as it could or should and make a change. It’s even tougher when that “thing” is something that was previously optimized for maximum potential. My routine. Goals. Meeting Expectation. And Time.. The […]

  • 2018-04-03 A Critique of the Critical Essay

    I’ve done a lot of forced writing in the last week. By forced I mean writing that I wouldn’t normally do. Poetry comes easy.. and when it happens I always enjoy it. I rarely pick a topic and say to myself, I’m gonna write about that this time. Journaling usually comes easy. I just start […]

  • 2018-03-22 Easier Said Than Done

    I’m completely stuck and and have to start here. It’s 2 in the afternoon and I’m so frazzled and unfocussed I can’t tell you which way is north. Of course I know north is at the back of my house, but I’m talking about “true north”. Yesterday, all my good intentions starting schoolwork were derailed […]
