Seems to me that we are a species which is a bit unaware. I have watched people, at the beach, in the mall, out walking, or in the park…they look straight ahead, or downward. Sometimes, they even look at the person to whom they are speaking, although this is increasingly rare. For the most part,… Continue reading Looking up~
I love weekends! And especially when we get to sneak off, avoid the kids/husbands, and have coffee together! How has your week been? Did you get the writing goals done? Did you get that pesky character sketch fleshed out? Or did the character just need to die?!! Our morning here, outside the little coffee cafe… Continue reading ~If we were having coffee~
Mornings are for two things: Coffee and Writing. It has been this way for years, although life sometimes upends the rhythm which creates a sense of imbalance. Life~sigh. It could be an emergency or being simply the sounding board for one chatty (though sweet) husband. Either extreme or anything in between, can send my nerves… Continue reading Morning Magic~
I New positive energy envelopes me today, and I am quite sure that I can attribute some of that to the new determination to eat BETTER! Oh, I have said this before, I know…I have begun new eating practices more than once in the past few years. From vegan to paleo…and eating by blood type,… Continue reading Why not?

Finding myself in a quandary…which bill to pay, which task to tackle, and always,… Continue reading Pondering~
The past weeks have been filled with family connections. My children are grown and most live far away…but we had three of them under my roof, TOGETHER, many times this week. My emotions ran from glee to melancholy even as I was determined to be strong, light, and present in each moment. Knowing the day… Continue reading Staying on Point~
via Daily Prompt: Volume The sea serves my hopes with splendid abundance, encouraging my dreams, comforting my fears. Perfection in volumes of earth, salt, shell, and sand to caress my anxiety.
“There will be NO snakes!” The perpetually smiling realtor assured us from the covered lanai. “Um, are you positively SURE?”. The words flew out of my mouth, even though I was trying hard to be upbeat and excited. We were shopping for a place to settle into for a year or more and having a… Continue reading Landing Spot~
Today is the third day in the Great Search Adventure…the one in which we discover or eliminate (or both) our Perfect Town. We have a list, oh yes….it varies just a wee bit from day to day but primarily must include: water, palm trees, quaint town with vital community and thriving shops, art, and culture….There… Continue reading ~The great search~
