Reflections and (in?) a bit of digital art …

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our personal awareness of change varies. Some of us refuse to even acknowledge that things DO change.

When I first took part […]

You

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]I looked in a mirror, and what did I see? A weary old stranger. “Who are you, you’re not me?!” I looked once again, expecting to find, The me I remember; the me in my mind. The reflection just stared back, tired and worn, A face shaped by sorrow, sad and forlorn. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image […]

Even on the darkest day, the sun still rises

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Today, when my dog woke me for her morning walk, it was dark. The sun had not yet risen, and the clouds were heavy.

My recent wanderings have taught me much […]

Now let me get this straight …

A list of Federally recognized holidays: New Year’s Day: we celebrate a random day in the middle of winter that doesn’t actually start anything except an arbitrary calendar by partying hard and having mega sales.

I have a few questions …

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Why is it not acceptable to blame easy access to guns for gun violence, but it IS acceptable to blame women for the rape of women? Why is it frequently the same people having those conflicting thoughts? Why do (again often the same) people find blaming lack of prayer in schools is a valid explanation, but […]

What stealing pens while eating a salad taught me …

I have recently been dealing with what I consider the flip side of writer’s block. Basically instead of a lack of ideas to write about, I have a surplus. There are so many that they are bleeding together, and I am actually having a difficult time separating the thoughts enough to put them into words. […]
