A New Year

This morning Facebook reminded me of my blog post from a year ago today.  I was on my way to Texas to start a new chapter in life. This blog was going to blossom and thrive as each new day in a new life unfolded. And then it didn’t. I got homesick and depressed. Countless…

The Versatile Blogger Award

Heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Aishwariya for this nomination!  I am grateful to her and all those who take time from their day to read what I write.  It warms my heart and certainly motivates me to improve! I was finishing a long week at work and preparing to fly back to Virginia to spend much needed time with…

Building The Big Stuff

I have always been in absolute awe of those who built the big stuff using rudimentary tools.  I feel like it would have been pretty overwhelming to take on such a task.  The problem for me at this point is that the tools are too sophisticated.  I feel like an ant staring up at a monolith when faced with…

No Cuppa Joe

Life is full.  My job offers me a generous creative outlet and has been my constant companion in recent weeks.  But all of my inspiration has been channelled in that direction.  I have taken my cuppa joe on the go, not stopping to hang out much.  I’m in the process of finding a new balance….

Waiting To Land

I feel every mile of the separation today.  Separated from people, places, occupations familiar and second nature to me.  No brilliant blog inspiration, or even aspiration at this moment. Circling my destination waiting for a runway.

Hurray!

I haven’t been counting.  I’ve just been pressing on, putting one foot in front of the other along this crazy journey from Virginia to Texas!  If you read my post Road Blocks then you realize what a delight this is to me! I hope to get better and better at posting things you want to read and…

Energized By WordPress!

Since my internet connection is primarily at work (for the moment) I’ve been sneaking in whatever time I can to catch up on blogs and enjoy meeting and chatting with people on WordPress.  It energizes me! I’ve noticed that my interaction with customers who pass through to rent a movie or buy a charger for…

Disrupted

My life, already at its chaotic peak, has been disrupted because my wifi was suddenly disconnected when my son moved to his new apartment Saturday.  We’re all moving out and in our own directions, but I must have been in denial about the wifi moving with him. I am having withdrawals. One more challenge to…

Act Natural

Of course this couldn’t be a typical morning because now I have a blog.   Naturally, I was up at 3:44a.m. wondering what to write this morning in the short time I have (correction, had) before heading off on a day of travel.  3:44a.m.  And the thoughts are not coming to me. Act natural, right?…
