I’m humbled to share that I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award and it is my honor to accept it (and to pass the torch on to some of the wonderful blogs that I follow). […]

I was going to say farewell, bon voyage, hasta la vista—but I know myself better than that. It’s likely I’ll post a bit over the next week or two, while I’m getting acclimated. I need to wean myself off slowly, to avoid that weird separation anxiety. I don’t know. That sounds a little neurotic, but it’s how I’m wired. C’est la vie.
We’re going out in public,
So please put on your mask.
Say “I’m fine” and “thank you,”
If anyone should ask.
I know your thoughts run rampant,
You want to share them all,
But these are not the places;
The grocery store, or mall.
Wait until you’re all alone,
And type them with your hand.
Share them on the blog instead,
Where people understand.
Time can be a little deceptive. It’s been two months since the fall semester ended, and—to be honest—it feels like it’s been a year. I’m grateful for the “down time,” don’t get me wrong, but […]

A simple, childlike faith in a Divine Friend solves all the problems that come to us by land or sea. -Helen Keller
We had some awesome cloud formations yesterday so I finally dusted off my camera and got a few new shots of the sky.
I want to live in a world where a chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned. I failed to mention that while I was busy babysitting the pugs, I also had to keep […]
It is not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy! I think I’ve finally hit the last of the archived images I had saved. I’m sure glad I’m leaving tomorrow! […]
Trust: firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.
Well… I’m starting something new!
I’m making my way back into A.A. meetings, and still very passionate about writing, photography and art- but I’m adding on to my activities. I need variety and more balance in my life.
Being at ease with not knowing is crucial for answers to come to you. Eckhart Tolle Warning: Reconstruction Ahead Sometimes I wonder if [some of] my posts need a warning label or disclaimer, just to […]
“God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons that we could learn in no other way.” -C.S. Lewis
Just a random pigeon today, at the old underpass. I had to get outside, go for a walk, and clear my head. I was literally in tears this morning. Too much weirdness going on that […]
My featured image, and something that’s been on my mind the last couple of days is Smoke & Mirrors. I know… it looks like a bird and a cloud. 😉
I took both shots yesterday, separately. The crow was surrounded by the haze above the city, and the cloud was right above where I stood. I pieced them together and did a little liquefy near the corners, so it looks a little like smoke.
Thank you so much to Rev. B. Keith Haney https://revheadpin.org for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award! And for your lovely blog that continually lifts my spirit. The Light Breaks Through is right! I […]
It seems that I’m doing this Mood project backwards. I wanted to do something with the tree, couldn’t decide between the versions, and then decided to find several moods; one for each. I think the idea was to […]
I’m going to get REAL right now and tell you that I started this blog to share my new faith in God, the ups and downs of my journey through recovery, and the wonderful discoveries […]
