A zillion little pieces

I was walking down main street in our little town last week, towards the post office (the new post office – the old post office is a restaurant now, but a beautiful heritage building). My grandparents lived in this town for years when I was younger, I can’t remember exactly when – they moved around …

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 …

Title goes here

It is now mid-October, 20 months since I left my office, expecting to be gone for two weeks, working from home while we waiting for this virus to pass by. I went in this summer for a day and there was my March 2020 calendar, still sitting there with all sorts of notes on it …

A rickety ladder

One of the things I’m trying to do on my vacation is a bit of mapping out and career planning. It turns out if you ask me where I want to be in five years I have no fucking idea. In my life I have, at least three times, been absolutely sure of what I …

Who am I?

I don’t think this is some sort of mid-life crisis, but I am in a place where I want to be writing more, because practice is how you get better. This is my writing space, because this is my space that I own. It used to be a space where I wrote about parenting my …

Quite the ride

It has been a hell of a two years. I was going to say hell of a year but then I realized, nope, it’s been two. Two years ago, beginning of September, I started this new job. I was on a year-long contract and we were going to have an election and a national convention, …
