Sloth

The thing I need the most right now is slow. I’m trying to work on drawing and sketching. I’m trying to get a handle on work. I’m getting ready to dive in to NaNoWriMo. The thing I need the most is to stop, breathe and slow down. Drawing class is about pieces and practice. Looking …

Meditations

There is something very pleasing about sitting in a room as the sun slowly sets and everything gets slowly dimmer. Something about sitting on the deck when there’s a chill in the air and coffee in my cup. Getting to a point in a book when you just want to find out how it all …

Drop it

My body is well and truly fucked up. I have carpal tunnel in my right wrist after waiting too long to ask for a proper desk set-up at work a few years ago. I have tendonitis in my right elbow that occasionally gets so painful it feels as though I’m actually going to dislocate the …

Ripples

My need to lose weight has been something that’s been in and out of priorities for a few years now. It seemed that whenever I had time to focus that would inevitably disappear when some new and awful challenge came up. The last few years have been very, very hard for our family. So much …

Gimme Shelter

Last night I wanted to make macaroni and cheese, so I went to the pantry and found that we didn’t have any macaroni. It was a simple moment when the fact that we’re dealing with something like no one has ever seen before became clearer. Because we can’t just run out and buy some macaroni, …

The Flow

I’m a writer. I have always been a writer – from the time I wrote a book of poems about pig and printed them out on our dot matrix along with a clip art cover. It’s what I do for work (and hopefully will continue to do). I’m good at it, it comes easily to …

Gone but not forgotten

There are days when I just need to sit back and cry and miss the people who are gone. I have recently been struggling with a lot of things that weigh heavily and I have been pushed to make decisions about my life path. There are people I usually would have consulted about things like …

Out of focus

Recently life has been a bit of a mess. We have a lot going on – sometimes it seems like more than we’ve ever had. Work and travel and a new dog, a kid with her stuff, appointments. More than once in the past three weeks I have made an appointment in one calendar and …

23 hours a day

Time moves differently in Cuba. Or at least it felt different. Maybe it was less the fact that I was in Cuba and more the fact that I had no internet access for 23 hours out of the day. Without internet I managed to fill my days with reading, swimming and movies. I also took …
