Thankful

Reflections on glass buildings and crystal waters Or on sporty glasses and sidewalk puddles Architectural lines and paths leading somewhere Each bloom turned up to meet the sky All the shadows and silhouettes Making each bright spot that much brighter Laughing faces and teasing smiles Puppy dog eyes and wagging tails Artistic plates with tantalizing…

Music Fridays: Simple Things

It’s been another one of those weeks for me. I’ve been thinking a little too much, maybe even feeling a little too much, if that’s possible. Every time I look at the calendar I remember something sad, like the fact that my dad passed away last October. This time last year he was still alive,…

Discovery

Last year someone broke my heart. I fell to my knees and cried bitter, lonely tears. I’d asked so many questions, struggling to understand. Suddenly it all made sense I filled pages and notebooks With feelings, frustrations, desires. Then I put my pen down and I looked around with renewed appreciation, for all was good….

Music Fridays: Thank you for the Music

Abba is back!! I just heard they announced their first new album in 40 years! I’m working on wrapping up a short story that I’m having a great time writing so this will be a short post. This is pretty much what I’ve been trying to say in this weekly series (and no, I don’t…

So Little Time…

I have so much to write about, but so little time? So much has happened in the last week and yet… I’m choosing to only concentrate on the important stuff, the good stuff. For example, last weekend I was on a three-hour Zoom call. Yes, I know I said I was only going to write…

The Sunday Post: On Mother’s Day and Writing

Happy Mother’s Day! It’s ironic that on my first Mother’s Day since moving closer to my children I didn’t see either of them today. I’m not complaining though. My oldest was out of town for a wedding and I spent the weekend at her place taking care of the pets. I heard from my youngest…

The Sunday Post: 100 Days of Gratitude

I dedicate this post to my ex-husbands. Yes, really. You’ll read why in a minute or two. When I began to collect all the entries in my gratitude journal for 2021 I knew that there would be many things repeated from day to day. It would be natural to have many repetitions. My friends and…

Thankful

It’s early still on this Tuesday morning. My coffee is just about ready, I’m dressed for work (in comfy yoga pants, of course), and I’ve already practiced some morning yoga. I was going to write this week about what I discovered, if anything, about myself during January, a month bursting with lofty intentions to establish…

Wednesday Worries

Maybe they’re not so much worries as ruminations, but Wednesday Worries rolls off the tongue a little better. Must be the alliteration. I’ve been sitting on my couch for about an hour now, not really doing anything productive, when there are at least a few things I could be doing. I have a crochet blanket…
