These years

Note: Most of this was written 2.5 weeks ago. In general, my outlook has improved, but – this is a glimpse of a momentary reality. Cringe at will. My birthday was last week. Damnit. I was so mad. Not because I had to get up at 4:15 am to open the store. Rather, because it … Continue reading

These wishes and wandering hopes

I have a laundry list of distractions, and desires, and because it’s 1:26 in the morning, I’m sharing them with you. I want to be an architect. I want to be a mother. I want to know that where I am is making a difference. I want to light up the room when I enter. … Continue reading

All summed up and tidy

This is my 150th post. One-five-oh. I ought to have written awhile ago, but I didn’t. That’s that. There it is, and settled. Somehow, I feel that this ought to be an epic post, a place where I introduce you to the next, thrilling phase of my life. Only, I can’t. This phase isn’t thrilling, … Continue reading

I’m not into phrases, … Continue reading

The Case of Employment

What you don’t see here, on this public blog, are the half-dozen posts I’ve written and saved, unpublished. As I’ve had a lot of time on my hands lately, I’ve been pondering and dissecting many situations. Some of this is bad, some of it is helping me get to a better understanding of who I … Continue reading


The writing continues, and for the next short while (I hope it’s short, anyway) it may be quite rambly, at times resembling a journal. I won’t apologize, because I think every writer needs these moments. This is my reverse culture shock honesty…enjoy! I’ve been stateside now for exactly three weeks. I’m still at my parents’ … Continue reading

What’s next?

I am not entirely sure where to go with this blog now. Ideas? They are welcome, although I don’t promise to follow them. I am no longer just a visitor, I guess I haven’t been for several months. But writing consistently-ish for 5 months was much easier for me to mentally handle than this unknown. … Continue reading
