Best Laid Plans

Where do you turn when words fail you? I’m just not sure. I don’t know how to say what is in my head or make sense of the feelings weighing heavy on my heart. Everything I thought I knew for certain has been ripped away.  All the precious things I held tight in my hands […]

Yellow Sheets

I came home and put bright yellow sheets on my bed. It wasn’t on purpose; my standard white sheets were in need of a wash and these were stuffed in the back of a closet.   When I saw them in the closet, I thought they’d make the bed, and maybe even the room a bit… […]

Spinning on that Dizzy Edge

When I was a little girl, I loved to stand in the back yard, arms outstretched, and spin until I couldn’t spin anymore.  I would twirl around until my knees buckled beneath me and I would begin to stagger as though I’d been shot.  Eventually, the world would turn bottom to top and east to […]

The Red Dress Club: RemembeRED

Your assignment this week was to write a memoir piece inspired by this picture of a garden hose.   When I was a little girl, I had a yellow bathing suit with polka dots.  It tied up around the back of my neck with little yellow strings and if my mother didn’t get my ponytail up […]


If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, I’m sure you’ve noticed a turn of events lately. Things got a little dour. Things got a little sad. Things got a little… miserably depressing and sad and mopey and heart-breaking and … Well. I don’t need to go on. Here’s the scoop: I’m gonna try […]

A “Poem” for your Sunday

“Where did we go?” I say, “I saw us in October; there are pictures to show we were there, both of us, there, smiling, laughing, loving each other. Then where did we go?” “To Hawaii,” you say. A shrug of your shoulders, a roll of your words, or your eyes I can’t see. “To Hawaii […]

And Now For Something Completely Different…

I never realized how stinking cute ducks are until last night. Of course it helps when you get to see the duck through the eyes of your toddler.  The apartment complex we live in has this “duck pond” which is really more of a dirty lagoon with fish in it where a duck happens to have […]


My head has been encapsulated in fear, anxiety, hurt, doubt, and the ever present worry for the better part of seven days.  Beginning last Saturday, everything I thought I knew about my world, my job, my marriage, my family and myself, crumbled down around me and left me motionless. I’ve never felt so alone, so […]

Smoothing the Rough

I’m going through a rough patch right now. I don’t know what else to call it and I certainly don’t know how to write about it… but it’s there. Hanging out.  Joining me for coffee on the weekends and mocking me from behind the bookshelves of my office.  There are moments when I think “I […]
