Searching for Gratitude

Searching for gratitude in a socially-distanced world is exhausting. I’m grateful to put 2020 in the rearview, but I’m not naive enough to believe that turning over the calendar or unwrapping a new planner fixes anything. 2020 was…a lot…like…a lot a lot. I’m tired. I’m a woman who usually does a pretty good job in […]

My Pull List

A friend asked me how many books I was reading the other day. I asked if he was talking novels or comic books. He said both, and there were so many on the list, it was hard to give him a good number. I think I said something brilliant like “I dunno…maybe 20?” So…here’s a […]

New Year, New Resolutions?

The last couple of years I’ve made New Years Resolutions. I feel like I’ve done a decent job of keeping most of them. However, that’s not the case for them all.

I wandered into a cute independent book store near my office, Magic City Books. Since I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, I just picked up random […]

Breathe

The last handful of years have been a roller coaster ride…or maybe a merry-go-round. You know the kind that we used to play on that spins you around in circles so fast you puke…or fly off and possibly sustain an injury worth of a trip to the ER. The ride’s been fun, but now that […]

Failed Artist?

Today I had someone call me a “failed artist”. Before you get all irate on my behalf, I’m not offended by this. I’d rather be what this person defines as a failed artist than a successful…I don’t know, pretty much anything else. This person’s definition of a failure is anyone who has the audacity to […]

Itchy Fingers

You know the feeling you get when you’re enthused, inspired, and energized to do something or make something? I call this “itchy fingers”. That’s where I am.  This isn’t an uncommon phenomenon. As a matter of fact, it happens all the time. Usually, it signals the end of a creative dry spell. Not the case […]
