"A train of thought tracks life differently in time due to moments of personal expression." I keep reading this quote over and over, trying to figure out what it means. I suppose one option is it means nothing. Someone fit some words together that sounded cool, but really didn't expect for it to mean anything. … Continue reading Jumbled Up Decipherization
I did not write a post last week. I have lots of legit excuses, but really I was sort of excited to skip a week because nothing too crazy has happened lately to inspire me with a creative topic. I've been relatively content. I have also been super wrapped up in my final project for … Continue reading A Thank You from the Obsessed
A couple weeks ago I had lunch with a good friend of mine. When I parked the car, I pulled into a parking spot relatively easily and thought even if people parked on either side of me, I would be able to get out because I could just pull out at an angle, no problem. … Continue reading Parking Impaired
I am a white woman married to a black man with three bi-racial daughters. This does not make me an expert on race. I don't know how to talk about it and I worry that when I do want to talk about it, I may say something wrong and inadvertently offend someone. Unfortunately, no one … Continue reading Race – Why Can’t We Talk About It?
My little sister recently was trolling the aisles at the Walmart Market when she was approached by a ruggedly attractive vagabond hipster cradling a frozen chicken in his right hand. He leaned over to her left, and in a low, confident whisper said, "just wanted to let you know...you're looking really good". She smiled and … Continue reading Conscious Coupling and a Frozen Chicken
It is always surprising to me when someone doesn't see their flaws. Especially since I spend most of my time focused on mine. It's not just me either. I know some pretty amazing people. AMAZING. (You know who you are.) No joke. I really think if I gathered all of you up, we could pretty … Continue reading Perfect or Perfectly Flawed?
I like to imagine my theme song for each day I am wandering around this planet. Today it was the song "Break Stuff" by Limp Bizkit. It starts off like this: It's just one of those days Where you don't want to wake up Everything is f&%$'d Everybody sucks You don't really know why But … Continue reading Bad Mood Be Gone
The song This Must Be the Place is one of those songs I could listen to over and over again. (I actually have three different renditions of this song on my Spotify playlists. Talking Heads of course, then Lumineers, and then Feronia.) Two lines have been rolling through my head today... And you love me till … Continue reading My Heart Hasn’t Stopped Yet
I am one of those people that delay the inevitable. Or in other tribes, some may call me a procrastinator. I like to think of it as taking the time to enjoy each second of every last moment before I actually have to do something. I learned this beautiful character trait from a very skilled … Continue reading A Few Good Procrastinators
I recently made a wild purchase. I bought a new bicycle. I even got a bulbous white helmet with flowers, a front and back light, a lock, and a drink holder. Don't forget the items needed to change a tire in case I get a flat. This is serious business. What led me to this … Continue reading My Inner Cynic is a Dude?
