Another Book Already?!

Yeah, I usually have a couple books going at once! One of my husband’s favorite movies is Omega Man and when we saw I Am Legend, we both looked at each other… “Wait a minute. This movie is familiar.” We looked it up via the blessed web and found out they are both based...

New Read – “A Literary Education”

It happened again. I forgot why I put this book on my wishlist. I need a better system. Or do I? Does it really matter where I got the recommendation? I suppose not. I’ve learned to trust my list. It’s there for a reason, so I buy them when I can. As I sat...

Mind Over Mood

I don’t deal with stress well at all and I can easily spiral out of control, creating a vortex of depressive thoughts that spin into a storm of angry chaos, destroying everything around me, leaving behind only those strong enough to weather the storm.

“I Am Enough” Book

Somehow along the way, I got the idea that I need someone to acknowledge what I’m doing and express their approval verbally at every turn.

Sharing the Excitement of Discovery

Since some people just like the pictures and some like to read more, I’m also sitting down to write a bit more thoughtfully about the pictures and quotes I post each day and then sharing it here on my blog.

The Old Man and The Sea

I usually have several quotes to share about a book I’m reading: things that struck me, bits I want to remember or that brings me to some idea I want to expand on, possibly not even related to the book itself but to a bigger thought…but not this time. This time it was more...

But It’s My Right!

In a perfect world, this would be a beautiful mantra to live by. But what about in this world? Can we live this way in a world where scarcity actually exists? Where we are bombarded with the worry that if we don’t take all we can, someone else will and we’ll be left with...

Dreams

A while back…when I had more time to think…I thought, “Maybe I should post these to my blog as well and maybe elaborate just a tad.” And then I forgot because there were pretzels to make, a garage to paint, and my son needed me to listen. I thought of it a second time,...

THIS is Why I Drink – Episode 1

Earlier this week I read an article in the paper that made me think, “THIS is why I drink!” I laughed (LOL’d you might even say) and thought to myself, I should write a blog post with that title. I even went so far as to laughingly post the thought to my Facebook page...

Disputes Over Ideas – Confusion of Language

Once again, the more I read about it, the more I see the similarities. Our current situation isn’t unprecedented. The end isn’t written in stone though. We could end up in a different place, as we have many other times when unrest began. I finished watching “Trotsky” on Netflix yesterday and was out watering...
