Making Peace with Me

I’m exploring ideas of solitude. Not complete solitude, but I’ve realized I’ve always rather enjoyed my own company. I also like going places with just me, or only one other person, namely, my husband. I’ve realized that I am a person who likes to think. I’m reading about others who’ve […]

The Mountains Are Calling

The sun rises in the east, and sets in the west. Moss grows on the north side of a tree. Water flows downhill, in case you ever lose your compass. The above paragraph/poem is something I wrote down, memorized, from things I was told when I was younger. ( If […]

Ergo Ego

“There is something about yourself that you don’t know. Something that you will deny even exists until it’s too late to do anything about it. It’s the only reason you get up in the morning, the only reason you suffer the shitty boss, the blood, the sweat and the tears. […]

R.E.M.

I just got home from a couple of (sober) perspective altering days in the mountains. I’m contemplating, mulling, a post about that, but it got me to thinking about these quotes, and this R.E.M.Β  song. “We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all of our exploring, Will […]

Illusions

So, let’s talk about this book for a minute, “Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah” by Richard Bach. I read this book when I was eighteen. A young man […]

The Great Winnowing

The great winnowing has begun. My little foray into my five minutes of thinking I might sell-off some of the things I’ve collected over the last however many ( many) years has led to the great winnowing! In the last however many days, I’ve donated a trunk-load of stuff that […]

Undone

In 2019, for about five minutes, I tried not to be a writer. That didn’t work out. I’ve done too much work to quit. That’s all I have to say about it. TS

Wings

This is how I spread my wings, on four winds in mournful sigh, this is how I live my dreams, this is how I fly, Into a night that’s darker deep, than the black at the bottom of the sea, Into a soul so fast asleep, aching to be free. […]
