4 Seasons of Living

Living In The Past

I failed to meet most of my goals last week so I’m living in the past, playing catch up, working on things I should have done already so I can hopefully get back on schedule for the end of the month which is… egads, tomorrow. How are we at the end of another month already?…

Workout Challenge Day 15

Today is day 15 of the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy. It’s the end of the third week which is a huge milestone.

Unhinged

When I’ve been away from writing for a while, I usually start with poetry. I write my feelings down in staccato, and just free myself to list my emotions without connecting them. Here’s what I am thinking today, in verse. Tears pool under your chin Pinpricks piercing the skin That covers my heart Matching fountains…

Tragedy In The Park

Ignorance is bliss, they say. I don’t watch the news much these days and some things I realize I might be ignorant about but the peace and calm I get in my blissful state, sometimes outweighs the benefits of being knowledgeable about current affairs. It seems there’s always some news item to focus on that will take my…

Establish And Build

How many of our favorites come from things that we have recently experienced?
