Behind the Scenes:

I feel compelled to write something today, though I'm not up for much else. Sleeping and eating and staying warm at home are  top of my list, conversation and homework and housework are at the bottom. My Stix need to be looked at and my shoulders are really hurting, which is rather alarming, because I... Continue Reading →


Cats, buses and kindness

"Be kinder than necessary, because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle." I'm a minimalist and I like to keep and use only that which I deem necessary and effective for the situation. I hardly ever carry cash or change. But today was different --I had change. A man at the bus loop needed... Continue Reading →

In brief:

Downs and Ups (5)

Saturday: Saturday is going well. I had breakfast with Forrest, DBB and read my book, put some new content together for this blog, talked to Grandma. I need to do laundry. And get groceries. I should do some homework. And I want to just relax and listen to some tunes and travel back to the... Continue Reading →

Downs and Ups (4)

Friday: Friday was wonderful. Work was fun, and I got a lot done. I owned that reception area 🙂 I don't know what the world's obsession with having about 100 of the world's crappiest pens providing needless clutter to what is supposed to be functional workspace is all about-- but for my desk at home,...
