Softening the Blow

The other day the blinds fell off my window. They landed in such a way that nothing was broken or harmed – no small task considering my desk sits in front of the window and is littered with knickknacks, a monitor, my computer, my printer, etc. When the blinds, fell it got me thinking about [...]

Love Me Tender

I’m recycling a blog post from 2009 so, no, a friend of mine didn’t die on Tuesday, but I think this post has merit and I wanted to reshare it with y’all.  This week I learned a lot about myself, where I am, and where I’d like to go. Someone I went to high school [...]

I've been kidding myself, resisting this change, and fooling myself into believing I just need to find a new place to live [...]
