I had a dream last night about my grandfather. He was young and happy as he was when I was a little girl, except I was an adult in this dream. The timing was all off and didn’t make sense and I remember even in the very short time we had, I was so thrilled… Continue reading 5 Minutes of REM Sleep
and no longer holding ourselves back. I originally wrote this on May 5th- I was home alone and struggling to sleep and I guess also struggling to remember to hit “publish.” ————– It’s been one heck of a year. So much has changed and even though I’m only a year older, I feel like I’ve… Continue reading We’re Moving Forward…
I have never really been much a fan of Spring. Fall and Winter is more my jam, with the vibrant natural earth tones, scarves and boots and big jackets, rain and all the promise of holiday celebrations.

This week during my lunch break one day I went to Starbucks to get some work done, (I know, working on my lunch break from work… I live the hustlers life, you see), and as the barista rang me up for my hot passion fruit tea, (I live a refined hustlers life), we had a… Continue reading New Year, New Me – right?
It’s hard to believe that there was once a time in my life when I hated books.
