I dream of a better world

Posted by & filed under my life.

I wrote this earlier this year. I’d like to return to writing more, because it is my happy place. So posting this dream that happened back in March…. I woke up from a bad dream last night with tears welling up in my eyes to overflowing. I know the source of his dream was for… Read more »

Merry, happy, joyous greetings, 2018

Posted by & filed under my life.

This year has brought lots of introspection on how to remain steady while the world swirls around in chaos, along with the realization that if we don’t find that place of peace inside of us, we can get caught up in all sorts of drama, created either by others or ourselves. Life on this planet,… Read more »

I am exhausted

Posted by & filed under my life.

I am so tired I actually can’t even think clearly to write what I want to write. But I need to get this out of me. Holding it in makes it even worse. What I want to say is that this past year feels full of chaos and angst, when I am on the verge… Read more »

Posted by & filed under my life.

I’ve sat down to write a Christmas greeting a couple of times but I stare at the blank page and ask myself, “what should I even write?” I’m not really in the mood to be chatty – say, what? But, there it is. Really. So quick updates on our lives, then I’m outa here. Me:… Read more »

Posted by & filed under my life.

Well, hey everybody. It’s been a whirlwind year! I hope yours was ultimately full of love and life and goodness. There have been some difficult things on a global level, but the longer I live the more I realize I need to take my eyes off of the world stage (besides doing my civic duty)… Read more »

Different

Posted by & filed under my life.

Some days, I feel so lonely. It’s a chore – a literal chore – being so different. I have to make myself separate meals, because everybody else I know eats dairy and eggs and meat and wheat…and fat and processed foods and sugar. I’m the only one at the party not eating the cake. I… Read more »

Merry Christmas 2015

Posted by & filed under my life.

Each year it gets harder for me to write a chatty Christmas letter. But I don’t think that’s a bad thing. The older I get, the more I appreciate each and every day and realize that life is a precious gift. I am thankful for so much. This year we watched little Landon grow and… Read more »

A quirky girl

Posted by & filed under my life.

As I was brushing my teeth the other day, and thinking about some of the people I’ve really been drawn to in my life (most of them outspoken and completely authentic and not into the status quo), and realized that some other people in my life would probably NOT relate to them (and haven’t), this is… Read more »
