If I can cross a creek…

Wow….what a couple of months it’s been. Not only did I finally come to a good place again from which to date and entertain the possibility of a relationship, I met someone new and enjoyed some fun moments visiting museums, taking photos, sharing food, and overall playing like a kid. I emerged from the fog,Continue reading “If I can cross a creek…”

The beauty I see…

Sitting in a warm coffee shop, snow flakes descending in white fury outside a nearby window, and I’m thinking it may be time to re-emerge from my brief writing hiatus. The past few weeks have been, in part, about moving on…..but also about returning. The return, in fact, has been both literal and figurative….returning toContinue reading “The beauty I see…”

Call me crazy if you want…

Back from a short trip to Arkansas and trying to decide my next step. More travel? Writing a short book? Going out of my mind for lack of physical intimacy? Perhaps I should apologize to anyone who thought this blog was going to be all “zen”….full of peace, harmony, meditation. Mostly, it’s about expansion….stepping outContinue reading “Call me crazy if you want…”

Not a point to this…

Sometimes, words flow. Sometimes, they don’t. Sometimes, I don’t get to finish a thought due to time constraints. Sometimes, I get caught up in the editing. Sometimes, I drive even myself crazy with the analyzation of the human psyche. All of this has been the case for me the past two weeks or so. IContinue reading “Not a point to this…”

Not my man…

Dear fellow overthinking, analytical, introverts, So, I don’t move you? Is that my fault? Do you think there’s something wrong with me? Well, let me tell you…..maybe I don’t do it for you because YOU don’t move ME. You don’t bring out anything in me and there’s a side of me you will never seeContinue reading “Not my man…”

I just want you to know…

Reaching just under 324 million users in 2021, interest in dating apps has skyrocketed since 2016, according to a quick google search. Despite these numbers, however, another search reports that only half of current singles claim to be looking for a romantic partner. The other half don’t want relationships at all. I look at theseContinue reading “I just want you to know…”

What will you do?

Let’s imagine getting a little house plant and giving it water so that it may grow and flourish.  Now, imagine giving it so much water that you end up drowning it.  Likewise, imagine planting flowers in your yard that love the sun.  You read that they love the sun, but you have a spot inContinue reading “What will you do?”

A whole other world…

When my husband passed away from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2010, I was not unfamiliar with loss and grief. Yet, for a period of time after his death, I found myself void of compassion for others experiencing their own loss, grief, and trauma. In fact, it was almost two years before I was ableContinue reading “A whole other world…”
