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 … Continue reading Another Glimpse Behind the Curtain…
But now I'm only falling apart. There's nothing I can say... Yeah, so not the best picture you'll see today (or ever) of the eclipse, but one I'm proud to say I captured with my cell phone whilst standing in the parking lot at my job. We only got the barest of darkness here but … Continue reading Once Upon a Time I was Falling in Love…
Not sure if this qualifies as an eating disorder or not, but I can officially declare that I am over eating. Not "over-eating" as in I'm eating past my comfort level, although I often find that I do that as well. No, I mean, I'm over the act of eating. I lost my taste for … Continue reading And We’re Done Here
Oh yes, so we left off with me explaining how my recent bout of anxiety attacks is none other than my Divinity giving me a "thunk on the head" that I need to do better with my mental / emotional health. I've let my empathy run me over and it's left me floundering in other … Continue reading Okay, now where was I?
Trust me, it wasn't all rushing water and shaved Alpacas. These were just some of the better shots I took with my cell phone that represent the peaceful places I found myself during my brief visit.
Sigh. That little critter spent two days hanging out in my file folder - holder. I had been in and out of the mesh box I don't know how many times before I finally saw it. Fortunately, it was very still and didn't do anything to startle me. We spent those two days just sort … Continue reading There’s a Critter in my Box
Hey. This post is sponsored by our friends at Insomnia International, the Migraine Fairy Brigade, and Excedrine. Guess who's been awake since 2:30 AM? And if we take a stroll through the archives, I'd be willing to bet there are at least four other posts with similar times in their titles. Sigh. Since I'm up, … Continue reading 2:33 AM – Deja Vu
Another revelatory round of Morning Pages. Check this out. I have come back to my home town every year since I moved away in 2005. I started coming back to do writer's events in 2010. It has snowed every trip back with the exception of the one time I came back during a summer to … Continue reading 22 of 40 – It’s Been a Minute
This is more of an excerpt of a scene, but it lit me up as I was writing it... “So how does all this work?” “Well, okay. There’s The Source. It is the energy or whatever that created everything. In human science, Its called The Big Bang, in human religions, Its usually called God. Alright, … Continue reading 19 of 40 – Another scene
Or an "ah ha" moment. Or an epiphany (we've had plenty of each on this blog). Either way, this morning's Morning Pages coupled with some questions from Terri Cole's Love Revolution series (specifically the Secondary Gain work sheet)... helped me to identify some key behaviors I need to stop doing. Yes, there was some "why" … Continue reading 17 of 40 – Light bulb…
