A long overdue moment.

I have been so busy lately trying to create masterpieces. So busy trying to find meaning; trying to find purpose. So busy highlighting the flaws I perceive in my own life and then doing my best to turn them into blessings. So busy trying to find today’s lesson. I have been so busy doing all of this ...

I don't want to be WOWed.

When exactly did we start believing that bigger and fancier is always better? I had a little excursion to the mall today with my mother. That is always a traumatic experience for me (I am just not that into consumerism), but we planned on ending with a visit to The Cheesecake Factory, which sounded like it would make any general annoyance from ...

Antacid for the soul

It has been an enlightening several days. For one it is apparent that my recent jump in visibility for both my sites WAS, in fact, a cosmic hiccup. Not totally unexpected. And I had some very eye-opening looks into some very bright mirrors, revealing to me how much junk food I have been feeding my ... Read More

I am occupied giving thanks for Thanksgiving

It has dawned on me that I have not been purely creative in a while. At least not without some egging on like with the 100 Word Challenge. So I today I am trying to do a “poetic” ode to yesterday. Enter at your own risk! Sorry in advance for any painful liberties. T’was the day after ... Read More

Thanksgiving. Occupied.

Just a quick post to wish everyone a Happy Turkeyday, and to indulge in a little nostalgia too. Not being a fan of the Hallmark Empire, I usually make my own cards when cards are needed. I found some drawings I did for holidays past (I think I actually intended to try to make a ... Read More

Occupy Thanks, and giving too!

It is uncanny how often reading other people’s words inspire something within me. Actually this is both a testament to the power of words in general, but even more so to the writing skills of the bloggers I frequent. This particular thought was sparked by a poem from my sister, and a humorous piece on shopping woes, ... Read More

Occupy Life (and Thanksgiving too)!

As I mentioned in my previous post, my brain has taken a vacation. I thought this would be a good opportunity to write something straight from the soul. After all the brain is not there to interfere. But when I sat down to write it I found that my brain, maybe a bit concerned I ... Read More

Written without a brain.

Is it bad that I am starting to tell the days of the week by what I am writing? A new 100 Word Challenge is out … must be Monday! I have actually been working the brain out hard for a few days now, and it is getting a little sore and cranky. It is ... Read More

I must have done something right (wrong?)!

I am a bit confused at the moment. Of course this is not such an unusual thing in itself. I am often confused. But the cause of this particular bit of confusion seems worthy of note, so here I am … noting. A few days ago I had a Facebook chat with one of my blogging friends. Sandi (Ahhsome) is one ...

Does anyone remember how to think?

I have an IQ of somewhere around 146. To those who care about such things, that means I am on the lower end of the genius scale. I am not saying this to toot my horn, but to make a point. I am supposedly genius, which supposedly means “very smart”. So would it shock you ... Read More
