Blindsided by a side of crazy.

I’m baaack! Oh sweet mercies the roads I have traveled these last two years. Ups and downs. Joys and disappointments. Life abundantly. I will say this isn’t my usual kind of post. At least not of late. Not that I’ve posted much lately, but you know. I meant to. Being distracted by a side dish of…

Time to face the music

It’s reckoning time boys and girls. My office is a nightmare. No really. I’m not exaggerating. It is so jam-packed with stuff that I can barely walk in the room. I’ve resorted to using my lap top on my back porch just to avoid the mess. Only problem is, it’s winter and baby it’s cold…

Music Monday: Feelin Groovy, Simon and Garfunkel

My banjo teacher used to call me “High Strung.” Some how, I don’t think that was a compliment. I’m always in such a hurry to finish up whatever we are working on and get to the next plateau that I don’t enjoy the moment. I’m the same way with losing weight, mastering cycling, and my…

Where’s The Freedom?

Otherwise, it’s just complaining.

I love Joni Mitchell, and I especially love this quote. I can think of so many things this applies to other than great songs. It applies to stories, comedy, and life in general. My thoughts are not always my friends. I’m on day 224 with this broken leg. I can normally stop my rambling brain…

Ya Got Trouble – or do you? A glimpse into the wilderness

Unless we know how to be alone on purpose, not in a runaway alone, but an intentional pilgrimage, we’ll never learn how to be with people. That’s why I wrote yesterday’s post. Not everyone knows how to be alone. I thought I did. I used to look forward to my days at the lake – until…

I Call Shenanigans

I DON’T DO CATFIGHTS Women who believe this: Don’t understand this: A person might believe that the first statement is true empowerment, but it isn’t. In reality, it’s nothing more than fear biting. Telling me that I get to choose whether you are my best friend or my worst enemy  gives all of your personal…
