Life, it seems, is never dull. I don't think I've been bored for more than 5 minutes for all of recent history, by which I mean as much and as far back as I can remember, and most especially the past 3 years.... In the beginning of 2015, I moved out of my volunteer role … Continue reading Summers, growing pains
A few months ago, I panicked. I had a panic attack. This was diagnosed after I spent 3 hours shut in a room by myself, to write an open book test for which I had prepared.

Not in the way you knew it, not in the way it was. And the info is not going to be … Continue reading Like it is (1)

I think about playing fiddle all the time and how much fun it is to literally fill the house with music. Forrest and I on fiddle, Rube on piano, Dad on guitar. And if you're really lucky, you might catch me or Rube or Dad singing softly, maybe some cello. We look at each other, … Continue reading Because it’s fun to play!
From November 2015 ---> My life has been full of LOLs lately...LOL has a multitude of translations: Live out Loud, Laugh out Loud, Lots of Love and my personal favorite, Lots of Laundry.
