Humans are the problem, but we’re also the solution

Rainbow and light

It’s been this way since the beginning. The fighting. The violence. The holier than thou attitudes. It happened in Mesopotamia. It happened with Napolean, Julius Caeser and with Alexander the Great. The quest for power, control and to be better than everyone else, thinking that we ARE better than everyone else. Wanting something and feeling… [Read More]

How the flu almost made me crazy

I have laundry to switch out but I’m avoiding it. I mean, it’s literally 10 feet away from me, but I’m pretending it’s not there. Call it laziness. Call it avoidance. Either way, I just don’t feel like it. Last Thursday, I picked up the boy child from school to find he had a 102… [Read More]

6 things to help calm the chaos

There’s a weight pressing against my chest. It’s been there for awhile. It’s rough out there right now. I hesitate to even open up my computer because there’s just SO MUCH — opinions, arguments, facts, lies, half-truths. I can’t deal with it and I know a lot of you can’t either.

It’s too much. Is there a deserted island I can run off too? As much as I am grateful to be… [Read More]

Life happens…and we just keep going.

I feel like I’ve been absent lately — from here, my online world. I think I have something to say and yet when I sit down to write, nothing happens. The cursor just blinks, mocking me. I stare at the empty page willing the words to pour out of me. They don’t. There’s been a… [Read More]

Embracing the chaos

I’m not sure what’s happened in the last 10 days, but life has all of a sudden gone a little haywire. I had an amazing weekend two weeks ago full of friends, my family and all sorts of yummy food. Then it all went to crap. My daughter got the stomach flu.  I won’t go… [Read More]

Whoa, I have time.

Coffee quote

On Sept 30, my work contract ended. I made a decision not to pursue more work at this time so I can enjoy my favorite season of the year, volunteer at the kid’s schools and do a few house projects. I’ve “officially” had no work for twelve work days. It’s been SO weird. Making dinner hasn’t been… [Read More]
