Well, getting up with the sunrise just isn't working for me. I guess that experiment is over. I wake when I wake. Of course, I woke shortly before Kreeli came galloping in my room announcing that she needed to go out. At 15, if she's running in the morning, that means its urgent. It means … Continue reading Resisting change
Rained a lot today. Thunderstorms weren't as dramatic as I initially thought they might be. Just rain. Even the occasional thunder we heard didn't scare Merlin away, though Bella hunkered down and Coville did have some nervousness (which isn't usual for him, and since it was at the beginning of the storm we actually thought … Continue reading Wash, rinse, repeat
Well, the soreness from weeding my garden yesterday wasn't as bad as I feared. Yes, I woke up stiff and sore, but I'd taken valerian last night to relax the muscles. As soon as I got up and got moving it wasn't too bad. As if weeding yesterday wasn't enough, the weather cooperated enough for … Continue reading Raking today

Maybe I should. Along with working on Palladium today (writing), I prepared several blocked in paintings which … Continue reading Painting starts
This is a hard post to write. Why? Because I see myself as never good enough. Writing a post like this demands that I admit it. People around me would be shocked if they knew how deeply this runs to my core. After all, I was valedictorian of my graduating class and voted most likely … Continue reading Never good enough?
I recently signed up for a lifetime subscription on a course package offered by Dean Wesley Smith on Teachable. Sometimes I just need reminders on my writing and I love the way Dean phrases things. He's blunt and honest. Don't expect warm fuzzies. I like that. It's an eye-to-eye level approach and I know it … Continue reading A Wise Friend
Because you will choose how you define 2020 and your life.
The courage to start and the willingness to try. How can those two elements expand your life?
