PART ONE The first thing that I noticed about my featured image—once I finished it, uploaded it, and was able to see it up close and personal—were the imperfections. Some lines too thick, some too […]
Everything seemed brand new before, Our hearts were filled with laughter, But time has silenced what we had, And we’re caught in the morning after. Honestly, I expected my “write something new every day” resolution […]
First of all, I want to say “Hello… it is good to be back!” Even if it’s only momentarily. For now. It’s been a little over a month since I’ve been active here on the […]
NO MATTER WHAT Hmmm… well isn’t that a wee bit grandiloquent?! Between the Word of the Day, grandiloquent, and the weekend writing prompt, peristeronic, I’m beginning to think that I need to keep a thesaurus […]
Image by Patou Ricard from Pixabay I’ve been hemming and hawing for weeks (or months), the pendulum swaying back and forth; from feeling as though it’s my responsibility (as a human being) to talk (or […]
It’s been a long time since I shared an update on my New Lifestyle, New Me project. I’ve been quiet about my progress. Why? Well… let’s just say that I’m beginning to understand why Adam […]
Is anyone else asking this question lately? The featured image here is pretty significant, as it struck me in several ways. First, I took the photograph several years ago and—until yesterday—never even knew that the […]
What is this “uneasiness” I’ve been feeling lately? What am I doing differently at the moment, since the (unofficial) quarantine started? What is it that I miss? What do I think I need? Is it […]
Dear Diary, I was going to write about my New Lifestyle, New Me project, but I think the Quarantine is taking the lead. I was convinced that it wasn’t affecting me, but now I’m starting […]
Journaling through Quarantine An idea on which direction to go with The Quarantine Project finally came to me. It didn’t happen while walking yesterday—as I had hoped—but the light bulb turned on this morning as […]
Resurrecting Gratitude When the (unofficial) quarantine began, I was on a mission. Two if you count the New Lifestyle New, New Me project—but that actually started before “everything changed.” What I’m referring to, and what […]
Dear Diary, It’s the 6th of April, the month that I vowed NOT to step on the scale. Why is it so damn hard? When I brought up eternity the other day, there was another […]
Before I dig into any New Lifestyle, New Me updates, I thought I’d share some thoughts I’ve had on this COVID-19 dilemma, social distancing, and how it’s helping me come up with some new ideas. […]
Gives you Lemons. Life has definitely thrown a curve ball. A part of me wonders if it’s the perfect opportunity to postpone my New Lifestyle, New Me adventure, but the other part of me—the pushy […]
Stars and blossoming fruit trees: Utter permanence and extreme fragility give an equal sense of eternity. —Simone Weil What a beautiful quote. I thought it paired well with the plum tree blossoms. I saw them […]
I wanted to stay up and do something before bed. I am NOT adjusting to the time change at all, and I am not a fan of staring at the ceiling until God knows what […]
I’m at the end of Day 3 and I’ve had an enlightening afternoon. I thought I’d write down a few tidbits before bed. I’ve been hyper focused on food—and the fact that I want to […]
It’s Day TWO and my motivation level is starting to skyrocket. I’m learning exciting things about my body type. Apparently I’m an apple? It’s really interesting to discover that “where” we store excess fat tells […]
Everything looks so different when the light starts to shine.
The authentic self is the soul made visible…
Tiny blossoms are springing forth on the flowering plum tree.
If I were a flying insect…
…this might be my view as I make my way through the wheat grass.
Something is Stirring
