Waiting and Dreaming

Do you remember when you were little & you couldn't wait until Thanksgiving passed to see all the stores embellished for Christmas? Waiting impatiently by the mailbox, you'd close your eyes tight, thinking the tighter you closed them, the quicker your wish for the arrival of the Sears WISH book would come true. And day...

Honey Boo Boo, Move Over!!

Dysfunctionality and all of it's implications is a state of being I choose to embrace.     I love my father's side of the family; I always have.

I'm not one of those who write generic letters of recommendation, merely changing the he... Continue Reading →

I stumbled upon a game of Blog Tag when reading one of the blogs I follow: mypenandme. The way the game works is I have to reveal 10 things about myself and then tag 10 other bloggers I would like to know more about.  This is a cool idea to help bloggers learn more about each...

It's Such a Perfect Day.


It’s Such a Perfect Day

I think in music lyrics. When doing a stream of consciousness exercise once, the professor asked, "What kind of thoughts ruminate in your mind when you're idle?" I hear a line from a song, sometimes from the last song I heard, but most often words that mirror what I'm feeling or thinking. Music fills my... Continue Reading →
