It’s funny how clear and mindful one can be when illness is a thought playing in your head vs. the sensory experience of snot dripping from your nose, your head feeling like a Zeppelin, and your body aching so much from relentless fits of hacking that you’re sure you’ve just coughed up a portion of your lung into the toilet.

No regrets

Regret to me is a vast waste of energy and time wishing and hoping some unquestionable fact will magically upend itself and turn out differently.

A Good Day

As often happens on my Sunday writing day, I sit down at my computer and have no idea what I am going to scribe. Somehow, so far, grace and my muse have always found me.

Is there any I out there?

As a writer my I is fixated on birthing pithy lines of prose and then killing all my little darlings, watching words emerge as perfect butterflies from ethereal cocoons only to pluck the wings from their temporal bodies in search of deeper meanings.

Prayer is a funny thing. People usually come to it when things aren’t going well. More precisely when things are heading to hell in a runaway handbasket.

I won!

I’m not sure what I won, but I’m a winner. Just check out Greetings from Coupeville, the highly successful and widely read blog authored by my dear friend, Michaelene, and you will see the proof for yourself. When I saw my name posted I actually heard a “yippee” jump from my lips. It’s a funny, […]

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man. ~ Heraclitus I went home last week. A home I didn’t know existed. As the ferry skimmed towards my former island residence a rainbow leaked its way across the sky. A bit clichéd perhaps, […]

Good Easter

Growing up Catholic, I always felt Good Friday was a poorly named holiday. After all, it wasn’t such a good Friday for Jesus. Sitting in church from 12-3 p.m. for each of the stations of the cross was torture, and I don’t mean that as a pun. It was painful to witness the stages of […]

I’m moving. I gave my requisite 30 days notice this week and I will be heading to bigger, brighter, and quieter pastures.
