Dream Bigger

Do you ever let yourself daydream the most fantastical daydream you can possibly imagine for your life? Some people don't daydream like that. Others will come up with a great "dream life" and then put the kibosh on their own daydream as being "unrealistic" or with the phrase, "it could never happen." Over the years… Continue reading Dream Bigger

Inclement Weather, and Quotes from Saint Joan

The rain has been seemingly incessant. It was ingrained in me throughout my youth not to be a "complainer." However, seeing as how I am now firmly into my middle age, I am, on occasion, given to indulging myself in a bit of complaining and I will tell you, I think I've had it with… Continue reading Inclement Weather, and Quotes from Saint Joan

Optimism

I'll tell you what optimism is, in a world where a fake issue of a real newspaper was distributed by activists, and went viral, and where the media got it wrong again, because they didn't check the facts, or get the complete story, before they ran with it, I realized I'd renewed subscriptions to a… Continue reading Optimism

Gold Mine, These Are the Words I Managed to Save

During the fall months of 2008 and into 2009, reality slipped away from me. Amid the avalanche of dissipating solidity descending into complete confusion and chaos of thought, I threw more than twenty years of writing, of work, into a cauldron of flames. Most of it without ever looking at what it was that I… Continue reading Gold Mine, These Are the Words I Managed to Save
