Cornerstone

I had planned to write about graphic design today. But I'm not going to. There are to many thoughts and feelings and emotions swirling inside me. So here are a few. Putting them into the universe helps. Thanks for reading. Life has been weighing on my heart. The heaviness of the air is smothering. I... Continue Reading →

Back on the Wagon

Well folks, I'm at it again. Writing. Blogging. This whole thing. I'm not sure if any of you have noticed but the world seems to be falling apart thanks to a global pandemic. Much of my world has changed, other pieces are exactly the same. I'm not currently working outside the home. Obviously, substitute teaching... Continue Reading →

Self-Care in Creativity

Self-Care has become such a hot topic and for good reason. Our society pushes us into lives that are ever increasing in the busy, the bustle, the to-do, the obligations, the yes.

Lucky #7

Today is my anniversary, celebrating 7 years of wedded bliss. I've been planning on writing this post for a couple weeks and have been working on the right words. And title. I kept debating between "Lucky #7" and "7 Year Itch." Many years ago, as I was just entering my 20's I worked closely with... Continue Reading →

Save the World

Part of my new year's resolutions included working to be more eco-friendly. Our world and it's resources are precious commodities. We, as earthly-inhabitants, need to work harder to care for it.
