I attended service at the spiritual center to which I belong this morning. Then we celebrated my sister’s 31st birthday with lunch at a Mexican restaurant. I then spent some time with my two oldest children, their spouses, and my granddaughter. Beyond that, I have been writing the better part of the day, either in my … More Happy Birthday, Suzanne!
I just spent a significant amount of time drafting a post about an incident that occurred yesterday. I had been reading another blogger’s tips and was inspired to write this post rather than “saving it for later.” Because I had forgotten to create a password for the two-step authentication security setting on my WordPress app … More Frustrated!
Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis will notice the drastic change in my theme. As part of the current blog challenge in which I am participating, I was encouraged to change my blog’s look. My favorite color (or non-color, I should say) is black. Most of my wardrobe is black … More Out of My Comfort Zone
I guess I am catching up from an emotional weekend, as I scraped myself out of bed at 10:00 this morning. I managed to get caught up on some email and sort of cook dinner (tuna salad sandwiches and soup). I helped my son with homework and here I am, at the end of the … More Simply Keeping My Commitment
I have been reading a book that explores, among other things, the concept of time. Incidentally, I am also preparing to embark on a journey that I know will distort time. My mother and I will be traveling to Colorado to attend her father’s memorial service. Something I have noticed is that death seems to … More Bent Time
As the day comes to a close, I try to come up with some poetry or prose. Trying to think of something witty, but the words just aren’t there… it’s such a pity. So I guess I’ll retire for the night… get some much needed rest for this writer’s plight. And tomorrow I will try … More Writer’s Plight
Leonardo DaVinci and Michelangelo (even at the age of 87) were said to have used the phrase “ancora imparo” often. The Italian phrase means “I am still learning.” When I think of such remarkable men, I consider myself in good company, as I too am still learning. At the age of 34, I earned … More Ancora Imparo
I am just getting around to my post today, and it is 11:21 P.M. I don’t like putting things off until the last minute, but I am getting it done nonetheless. I have not been able to get myself back into a routine, so I am flying by the seat of my pants most of … More Under the Wire
I’ve tried to keep my blog posts as positive as I possibly can since my accident back in November. Unfortunately, the denial of my own fears and anxieties has only allowed them to incubate. So it is likely I will posting some more transparent posts, at least for the next week. I have been tasked … More Blogging and Mental Health
As a result of writing daily, I have come to the conclusion that it is time to start that book. (I actually have a few partially written books in my head, so I just need to get them “on paper” and completed.) My daily posts aren’t enough to satisfy my writing addiction anymore. So today’s post … More Blogging: Gateway to Books
