Rambling Morning Thoughts

I’ve always been a writer, at least inside my heart, for as long as I can remember. I wanted to be a journalist even before I knew there was a word, a title, for what I wanted to do / be when I grew up. I never doubted my vision or that it was the […]

Just as we are

Okay, I haven’t posted any quotes or thoughts for awhile so this one is going to be “off the cuff” . . . I have been thinking about attitude today, about trying to stay positive even in the face of set backs and losses. I tend to bury my stress under activity sometimes, I push […]

The Lady in White

“The only story I remember hearing much about was the Lady in White. Supposedly, a woman walked along the shoulder of the road near a small river dressed all in white, apparently a wedding dress. Lots of people would see it, especially at night, when driving along this lonely stretch of road. She seem to […]

Crayons

I feel like writing tonight, like I should be writing . . . but no topic seems to bring enough thoughts to wend a tale . . . There seem to be so many writers in the world today with so much to say . . . so many news stations and so much information; […]

Thought for Tuesday, September 3, 2013

“…each day is an adventure for you to discover. Face each day without fear or expectation. Experience to the fullest whatever comes your way. It is as God meant it to be.” My philosophy in life, the way I have accepted me and my day to day surroundings is to always believe I am exactly […]

Just the skeletal remains of what once was a booming mining camp but are now just dusty buildings and faded photographs. Most of the businesses […]

Turn Back Time

You know how you always see those articles titled “What I would say to my younger self?” Well, I’d like to think that I’d tell my younger self the same things I wish I could say to the young women of today. I wish I could let them know that there’s nothing they can’t do, […]

Change

Today as I made my commute home in rush hour traffic, I longed for the day when the road might be filled with autonomous vehicles. Oh, I know the doubts and fear that people have, but honestly, has there ever been a great change in technology when people haven’t been scared? Those that loved their […]

Bitters and Pickle Juice

Today has been tough digestively. I suffer from Gastroparesis, (GP) delayed gastric emptying. It’s an odd disease, seemingly going into remission for long stretches of time only to return with a vengeance. It means many of the foods I love are off-limits – salad, raw apples, bananas, steak, celery, (oh I miss celery), fresh green […]

At the End of the Day

I turned the BIG something “O” this year and just thinking about that number is still scary. It has taken months to accept; months of doldrums. Maybe not for the reasons you think, at least not primarily for those reasons. Sure, I wish my skin was firm and my back didn’t ache, but mostly I […]
