My Single Life: Day 74

As you may have already figured out, I’ve been working on myself over the last several months. From practicing yoga and meditating, to reading and listening to podcasts, I’m trying to cover as many bases as I can. Of course there are days when I want to disregard all the knowledge and insight I’m gathering…

Savannah Smiles

Straight out of the notebook that stays at my side, including last week’s road trip. It’s not so much poetry as stream-of-consciousness writing, with little to no editing. Texting in the park About toys, gifts, strangers, and drinks Smiling by myself Sitting on a bench Listening to the birds And the clop of the horse’s…

The Sunday Post: A Quick Recap

Warning: This post is going to ramble. It will cover many seemingly unrelated topics. (Yes, I know. This will not be the first time.) I might get somewhere by the time I’m finished writing, but I might not. I will reward you with some pretty pictures at the end. I’m back home after my road…

The Sunday Post: It’s All Good (aka My Single Life: Day 60)

Isn’t it wonderful to have something to look forward to? I know I’m not alone in thinking that it’s about damned time that we all had something good to look forward to, something to be excited about. I’m getting on the road this week to celebrate my birthday with a solo road trip. Just months…

My Single Life: Day 49

I had date #4 with “dress guy” last night. You know, the one who said he would go anywhere with me as long as I wore dresses like the one I did for our first dinner date. This is also the guy I thought I scared away with all my talking and tears on our…

Ten Things I Like about Being Single, So Far

Sigh. I had a whole post written and ready to publish, and it included a great list of things I like about being single. But then when I went to save it something happened and I lost it all. It’s like I never started it or wrote a single word.  I will try my best…

My Single Life: Day 37

I had multiple ideas last night for a post or two, and maybe even for the continuation of Jenny’s story, which I’m still working on, but of course I did not get out of bed to write them down. I was tired. I kind of remember a few of them…. This is (just) a quick…

Music Fridays: Vamos a la Playa

This week’s bloom take me back to the beach…. wish I was there right now. This week’s weather turned cool and rainy, probably because I was bragging about how nice it was. 🙂 I’m not sure I ever went to Taboga when I was 13 or 14. I don’t remember going with my family so…

You’re Doing it Wrong

Is there a wrong way to do it? I’m referring to dating, in case you can’t read my mind. Maybe specifically online dating, but mostly dating in general. This is so new to me. I keep thinking that my case is unusual, that most people have dated much more than I have at some point…
