Unexpected Summer Losses

In mid-July, I was in a car accident. I was the 4th and final car hit in an intersection accident. I was in a left turn lane behind another car. After the light turned green, an elderly woman coming the other way, ran the red light and t-boned the sedan in the intersection which spun... Continue Reading →

Shifting and Letting Go

I'm trying to get things sorted out and easier to sort through for when I'm gone. I know it's not something most people want to think about let alone do, but I find that it's far better to plan and not leaved your loved ones chaos. I was left chaos, and swore I would never... Continue Reading →

The Bitter and the Sweet

I teach at an blended learning alternative high school. It's the kind of job that, at times, will break your heart and, at times, will make your heart sing. Sometimes in the same day. Today was one of those days. I had the family of a student I had in my class all this past... Continue Reading →

Jan. 6th Hearing – 6/28/2022

I've watched the slow march towards authoritarianism for many years. I've watched that march break into a full run since 2016.I've watched the GOP's horror show become a death-spiral.I've watched the Jan 6th Committee hearings with anger and disgust.But today was different. I'm not even sure why today was different. But it was.I'm an eternal... Continue Reading →

To-Do Lists Be Gone!

I have chosen not to create to-do lists anymore. I would inevitably add more than I could possibly get done, and then not be kind to myself when I fell short of accomplishing a super-human task of completely an entirely unrealistically long to-do list. Sure, I tried to shorten my list, but then I would... Continue Reading →

Preparing for Each Day

As I've started to realize that I'm getting ahead of myself, I find that I'm worrying about how things will happen down the road. Now, I know that I need to leave that behind and trust that I may not know how it will happen, but that it will happen. I know the universe has... Continue Reading →

Taking Small Steps

I'm figuring out what I need to do to craft the life that envision for myself. It's been interesting. I've had successes in some areas and not in others. Now, I'm looking at what makes one goal a success and another fall short. Oddly enough, a scene from a movie about rehab came to mind.... Continue Reading →

Everything Is Waiting for You

In the time since I last wrote, life has been easy and hard with the usual twists and turns. But mostly, it's been life, my life. Embracing my hopes and dreams, I am finding my way through a sea of goals, pausing to celebrate each island of achievement as I go. In gratitude, I pass... Continue Reading →

Creating A New Vision

I've learned to let go. I've learned to sit on the bank and watch the river carry things away. Many learn that, then move on again and again, meandering aimlessly through existence. No purpose, no intentions to set, no gifts brought forth to share. Yes, I've done this. I've learned to clear out the clutter... Continue Reading →

A Dreamed Reality

I want to have a home, a place I belong. A place where I feel welcome and, in turn, welcome others through my door. A place where love and trust and kindness are staples. I want to hear music and laughter. A place with drumming and journeying. A place where we honor the seasons, give... Continue Reading →
