2nd Letter from Camp

Dear Mom, Here we are at day seven and it would appear I've been adopted by a rabbit.  A big, fluffy, pretty brown - the biggest rabbit I've ever seen. When I asked one of the counselors about it, she said there's a whole warren of the big bunnies just outside the camp grounds. They … Continue reading 2nd Letter from Camp

Let the training montage begin!

That's right guys, the first level of my transformation into super agent Onyx Butterfly has been booked. I signed up for 12 sessions with a personal trainer who just happens to work exclusively with clients over 40 years of age. It was kismet. I had just decided to invest the money in a personal trainer … Continue reading Let the training montage begin!

Comfort Zone – the Continuing Exploration Beyond

First tentative steps beyond the borders of my Comfort Zone: DIY Program & Creator's Guild launch. - the program was by no means ready but I "launched" it anyway.

By Day…

I'm a mild mannered human-BEing busy doing what needs to be done. You know, the mundane, day-to-day minutiae that makes up an ordinary life.

Valentine's Day. You're told that much like Christmas, the best way to show your love is to shower your special someone with gifts and attention. That's all well and good, but when was the last time you were told to do that for yourself? Women especially are taught how to show others love, but there's … Continue reading Embraceable – A Quick Chat with August McLaughlin

It Doesn’t Help That I’m Fashion Challenged

So I went on this little rant deal the other day about not being able to find clothes that fit. I thought about it some more and you know what part of the problem is? I have no real idea of what looks good on me to begin with. I have no fashion sense what … Continue reading It Doesn’t Help That I’m Fashion Challenged

Baby Steps – What a Concept (now that I understand how to apply it, lol)

Seriously, I've been hearing people use the "baby steps" analogy to achieving goals for years (and years, and um...years.  I'm almost 50 you know 🙂 ) but until this year I'm not quite sure I got it. I mean, yes, it's obvious they're saying to take little, short in length, tip-toe type steps to reach … Continue reading Baby Steps – What a Concept (now that I understand how to apply it, lol)

The Day I Became a Woman

HA! Yeah, no, I'm not about to tell you the heart warming tale of the day I "lost" my virginity - why do we use that particular word, "lost"?  I didn't misplace it, or put it down somewhere and forget where I'd left it.  Hmmm. Anyway, my first sexual encounter was hardly epic enough to … Continue reading The Day I Became a Woman
