My childhood home is now yours and I want you to know that this was a place of love. Continue reading To the Lady Living in My Childhood Home…
Love and loss is anything but simple, unless you’re a witch… Continue reading Love, Loss, and a Witch
How I learn about what goes on behind the scenes with some artistic partnerships. Continue reading A Behind the Scenes Partnership
I don’t recognize myself anymore. I’m probably more surprised than anyone else about the things I do and say. And I don’t mean to say that the things I say and do are bad – they’re just not something I would have ever associated with me prior to now. Now… now my life is a free-for-all of emotions. I catch myself fake laughing before I … Continue reading Life Got Flipped-Turned Upside Down
I was chatting on the phone with one of my friends today when she noticed that one of her chickens had gone rouge and escaped its pen. Now, I’m not one to pigeonhole other species, but it you’ve ever been by chickens then you know that they are the Jason Bournes of the bird world.

Yes, I’m talking to YOU. Calm down. Just breathe. To clarify, I did not win the Powerball. (I know, I know – how disappointing. Now, just imagine how I feel!) Did I get you, though?

Long story short, I submitted a little later than requested, … Continue reading Pawtographs and a Writing Plan

Regardless of where these resolutions stem from, I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to bottle up all these grand expectations or wishful thoughts or … Continue reading New Year’s Lightening Bugs
A few years ago, when I was extremely broke and living with a roommate who was equally unfortunate monetarily, we had our lights shut off. It was mid-afternoon and the energy company wouldn’t be able to turn everything back on until the following day, so we were pretty much stuck living in darkness until then. My roommate, who was a freak about technology, was lost … Continue reading Good Bad Days
I don’t know how, but I’m doing it. About a week ago, I officially put my mental foot down and told myself that I needed to start writing again. (Yay, me!) And, although it’s been extremely slow going, I seem to be making steady progress on the writing front. Now, when I say progress, I mean that I am writing a little of something every … Continue reading What Qualifies?
