Behind the curtain, one more time.

  Um, yeah - let me take off all of these hats: indie author publisher project manager CEO / CFO admin professional marketing department personnel coach content developer editor writer ...oh yeah, and my wig (lol). Whew. Okay, here we go.   Hi. My name is Dana Ellington. You're reading a blog post on one [...]

Another Glimpse Behind the Curtain…

Read a lengthy article via one of my favorite blogs (Ends and Beginnings) not too long ago (click HERE).  By the end of the article, my fear, mistrust, and sadness rose to the highest levels they've been since elementary school when the TV mini-series Roots aired (1977) and sparked racial tension at school  I was ten years old [...]

Long Weekend – goodnight.

Yeah, so...sigh.  Let the madness and mayhem begin as I once again, move households. The gypsy lifestyle wasn't much of a bother when it was just me and the goober (aka, my daughter).  We didn't have much in terms of household goods and what we did have was fairly small and easy to tote (How [...]

Once Upon a Time I was Falling in Love…

Where have the words gone?

I'm beginning to think my Morning Pages routine has usurped my Blog in terms of where I go to process my life. Used to be I'd post my inner ramblings (edited of course) here whenever the words demanded release, or I needed to "think". Since entering the 8th month of daily Morning Pages, I've noticed [...]

If you could see inside my soul…

Here are just a few of the items you'd find: a note pad and an ornately carved ink pen with a fine tip. The ink inside would randomly change color to cover all the spectrum of the rainbow. a seven year old playing, skipping, reading, but mostly day dreaming of all kinds of things an [...]
