Me just being ME (so she can be SHE)

It may seem odd, but one of the questions I find the toughest to answer is when I am asked, “What do you do for a living?” Even back in the days when I had something resembling a traditional working life, I never quite knew how to answer that question. As far as I am ... Read More

The Song of the Pond

The other day, I did something I have not done in a very long time, yet something that should be a staple of my soul’s diet. I communed with nature for a bit. As many of my recent posts have indicated, I am struggling with a lot of things at the moment … all which ... Read More
