Day 7

I am so very sad today. Not because of who is my President. I alone can’t control that. I am not even sad about the crazy behavior at the US capitol. We, Americans have been known as rebel rousers since the beginning. Even with our reputation of anachronism, we are Americans first. I have always… Continue reading Day 7

Day 5

I became a librarian nine years ago. I have been at my current job for exactly five years to the day. I was in management for years in a job I hated. The stress was literally physically and mentally killing me. So I simply put my health and happiness first. I quit my 64k a… Continue reading Day 5

David was Scared

Goliath was terrifying. David was scared and he fought anyway. Even when you are afraid, fight for what’s right and defend love. When you are scared fight harder.

I ❤️ Mail

I love real mail. Paper and stamps and cards and words... It takes time to mail a real letter. Few humans take the time to send cards or letters. Even at Christmas time there is an overwhelming feeling that sending cards is not a priority anymore. It is truly a dying art. I wonder if… Continue reading I ❤️ Mail

Reading is Everything

If you don’t read you are missing out on a magic that is unmatched by any other force in the universe. There is nothing you can say to change my mind. Books are the gate and you have the key.

Traditionally I’m Over It

I want to skip the holiday this week. That would be selfish. Americans love their USA holidays. It’s so much stress and does not fit into my focused simple life plan. My children don’t like traditional Thanksgiving food. Often we serve alternative meals. This year we are, for the first time, going to a restaurant… Continue reading Traditionally I’m Over It

Out of Office

How many times a week do I sit down and my writing muse does not show up to play? Let us just say several. No matter what you do creatively if inspiration doesn’t strike you, leave it alone. Walk away. Sometimes an idea will hit you when you are thinking about something else. Don’t get… Continue reading Out of Office

Nature is Beautiful

I’m currently it Texas. It is big, dusty and full of people. The entire place glows in a bright sunshine haze. It’s so different from the blue and green of Florida that I am used too. Same sunshine different brilliance. Humans are the same as nature. If they are allowed to be themselves rather than… Continue reading Nature is Beautiful

Don’t Settle

I know that sometimes the comfortable situation is not the right situation. Do not stay in a place or with a person just because it is comfortable and familiar. I know there is logic in the devil you know theory. You know how to act and how the other will respond. You know how to… Continue reading Don’t Settle

Live your life

Waiting for someone else to act before you live your life is crazy. Live your way, now, today. If you don’t do what’s needed for your happiness, life will pass you by and when you look past what you are waiting on, life will be gone. Don’t wait, chase that goal now.
