I wrote a long post of my personal account of 9/11 but decided to save it for another day. It felt wrong. Too much or too self-indulgent or something. New York has been my favorite city for as long as I can remember. I lived there for a year in 1997. The anniversary of … Continue reading Few Words As I Reflect On 9/11
I have 12+ posts hanging out in my drafts folder that I'm not even feeling remotely inspired to complete at the moment. I also desperately need to write. I need to put words on paper like a cranky child needs a protein snack and a two-hour nap. And for those non-parents reading...that is dire. So … Continue reading Summer in Review – Part 1
I'm trying to stay afloat this summer, keep up with my kids and their activities, my writing projects, and more, all while attempting to retain a shred of sanity in the process -- both literally and figuratively. BUT...I wanted to quickly pop in to say hello. Meditation is going. Thanks to all of you who … Continue reading Titles Fail Me When Tragedy Strikes.
Hello, lovely readers! I'm working on part 3 of the series on my spring downward spiral, funk, mini-depression. I'm still not sure what to call it. If you're interested, here is part 1 and part 2. I'm pretty much on the other side of it now and am trying to gain some insight/clarity and understanding … Continue reading Update, CreativeLive, Inspiration
I want to tell you everything's okay...that I'm fine and all that. And while that wouldn't be a flat-out lie, it's far from the entire truth. I wish I could take a vacation from life. I want all the hard mommy duties to go away. Fuck meal prep and the revolving door that is … Continue reading Where Did the Past TWO Months Go?
On Friday, I read a post on my friend Dyane's blog that reminded me of a life-altering experience my friend, Tara, had several years ago. I do a lot of thinking about social media -- the connections, behaviors I see, the benefits, the drawbacks. I ponder how I prefer using various platforms, both personally and … Continue reading Facebook, Unfriending & Havoc Created: Part 1
How cool would THIS be? I might put this on my list of things to do in the near future. Check out this link for more.
Check out this fabulous post by my partner, Maggie, over at Live. Snap. Write. I hope all of you are staying warm and surviving winter (or summer for many of you.) It hasn't snowed in Coastal Georgia, but if I never see another rainy, overcast day I'll be okay. However, Maggie helped me shift my … Continue reading The Blizzard’s Lesson
I feel strongly that I should warn you about the nature of this post. It's a whiney, first-world rant of the largest degree. Move forward at your own risk. I'm in a bitch of a mood. It started at 6:30 this morning when Wallace jumped on Pier's head. Piers slept in my room last night … Continue reading Post-Holiday Funk
We clap hands and welcome the Peace of Christmas. We beckon the good season to wait a while with us. We, Baptist and Buddhist, Methodist and Muslim, say come. Peace. Come and fill us and our world with your majesty. We, the Jew and the Jainist, the Catholic and the Confucian, implore you to stay … Continue reading Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
