  1. Does the caged bird sing?

    At long last I have escaped from the cage that I allowed my fears to build around me. It felt like all of my hopes and dreams were trapped inside, along with my positivity. But, I finally managed to...
  2. Face Everything And Rise (fear)

    “Let everything happen to you
    Beauty and terror
    Just keep going
    No feeling is final”
    ― Rainer Maria Rilke

    Beauty and terror seem so intertwined in my life, much like joy and sadness....
  3. The gene pool seems a bit shallow...

    Oh jeez. I fear I am destined to be single. Few candidates out there and lord knows I absolutely will not compromise in this arena. Befuddled. So many men in my dating age-range have let themselves...
  4. So silly, I just can't remember why I didn't just...

    So silly, I just can't remember why I didn't just speak to him on the phone the next day. Our voices were very similar. Hahahaa, what a goof I was/am. More escapades later...
  5. The Hunger Games

    The heat, my waistline and my pocket book are all wreaking havoc on my diet. Hate eating in the heat and, as mentioned, I want to lose about 10-12 lbs. My friends all want to feed me but I can't eat...
  6. The good news is that much like a cat, I always...

    The good news is that much like a cat, I always land on my feet. Here's the thing...transitions are always hard for people (independent or otherwise). The space between the two places (where you were...

    New tales of old. I like that term. Yes, yes. More to come. Thanks for writing :)
  8. Empty roads...

    I am pretty sure I have myself to blame at some level for the lack of support (emotional or literal) in my life right now. Possibly because I never wanted a life with a picket fence, a husband and...
  9. It's been a long week. Some voiceover work (yay)...

    It's been a long week. Some voiceover work (yay) and it looks like I placed one of my brokerage's wines by-the-glass at a high end Beverly Hills restaurant. Fatigue is my new best friend. Burning...
  10. I don't mind the challenges! They forge me into...

    I don't mind the challenges! They forge me into someone new and stronger. As always, thank you for your comments (they certainly made my morning).
  11. Of Kites and Dreams...

    Happy Father's Day! For me it's a day to recognize all of the gifts, both literal and metaphorical, that my Father gave me during his life. The most important gift, that of positivity, is one I...
  12. Lord what fools these mortals be...

    I grew up believing that I would live forever. Or, at least I sensed that in a very abstract sense. Perhaps all kids do until that one defining moment, whatever it may be, that smacks them...
  13. Finding words

    I have found my voice silenced a bit since my last words here. I've wanted to write many times, and for a brief moment would feel myself brimming with thoughts and emotions popping right out of my...
  14. Sparkles

    Somehow I got distracted by life and took a wee break from this blog. Partly because I've been a busy gal and somewhat because I've been beating myself up about my writing. I copied and pasted...

  18. Fragments

    Some challenging moments threatening to cave me in over the past few weeks, some of them quite overwhelming. Absolutely doing my best to make sure that positivity prevails. No matter what. I shall...

    Yes, ups and downs are certainly a part of life! Thanks for reading my tales...
  21. The sky is NOT falling...

    Never let fear be your motivation (demotivation??) for not taking a chance in life. Yes, I am well aware this is easier said than done for most. The funny thing is that we seldom even know what is...
  22. HeuristicFireFlower...

    I need a furry guardian trail angel. How lovely that you do. It's been ages since the glorious days of Champy and my only guardian angel of late is my good spirits. Glad you got to appreciate Goldie....

    Thanks for that. I needed to read that tonight!
  24. Tilting at Windmills

    Cervantes wrote so eloquently of windmills, something I am not quite talented enough to accomplish. I can, however, tell you that unlike Don Quixote, I refuse utterly to joust windmills. His trusty...
  25. Fat Tuesday

    Every year at this time I am reminded of my utter strength and confidence in surmounting the seemingly impossible. And am noting that if I can do it, you can too. This is a post from an earlier blog...
