In the context of a post-2020 world, every single event of the past seems to be millions of years ago in my mind. With that detail in mind, a million years ago, Virginia Woolf wrote that writers needed a room of their own for their creative process to be allowed to thrive. This was one … Continue reading Environment

Obsession ~ #wwwblogs

"All extremes of feeling are allied with madness." ~ Virginia Woolf When light ripples away and direction disappears I dance where there is no North and you can't tell your ups from your downs There is a thrill in my pounding heart and lungs screaming for the return to land But I seek the depthless … Continue reading Obsession ~ #wwwblogs

Friday Philosophy ~ The Soul

What is it, really? I can give you the dictionary definition, but I have a feeling that won't be a meaningful meaning (haha) for most of us. The soul is the intangible part of each of us that makes us who we are. It is our essence, our spirit. "Every flower is a soul blossoming … Continue reading Friday Philosophy ~ The Soul

Friday Philosophy…The Senses

This week, I had the opportunity to do something I had been interested in trying: flotation therapy. That experience has led to this post today, as part of the experience is sensory deprivation. It's probably the closest to an out-of-body experience I have had. So, we arrive at the topic of thoughts on the senses. … Continue reading Friday Philosophy…The Senses

Poetry Speaks

It was a sane madness a dress a wallpaper A wild robbery the loss of a name a theft of voice The names blend into a solid wall - a Virginia, George, Anais, Simone, Edna, Charlotte - mural To tell the world: "We were here." "We mattered." "We remain."

Friday Philosophy…Fantasy

This week, both my Maddie and Moses had a birthday. Although I still feel somewhat sleep deprived, I'm happy to say that a wonderful time was had by all. We spent some time in the world of Harry Potter, and it had me thinking about this entire world J.K. Rowling created from her own mind. … Continue reading Friday Philosophy…Fantasy

The Introverted Writer…#MondayBlogs

That title sounds redundant to me. All writers are introverts, aren't they? AREN'T THEY?! Okay, maybe our writerish tendencies towards obsessive people-watching make us more wallflowers than introverts. Or maybe you are the biggest social butterfly ever and you are a writer, too (please comment if you are and please tell me how the land … Continue reading The Introverted Writer…#MondayBlogs

Better Late Than Never! #MondayBlogs

Your writing environment. I think it's safe to say that we all have one: that space we nestle into with our laptop or notebook and start to make the magic happen on the page. Personally, I'm a "free range" kind of writer. I will write at my desk, on the couch, in bed, at the … Continue reading Better Late Than Never! #MondayBlogs

Friday Philosophy…Metaphor

Bear with me here: I'm still reeling from last night's cold medicine, and I have a fragment of a sliver of a thought taking root this morning. It may be meaningful, it may be fluff. Regardless, it's the foundation of today's philosophy post. I may prefer to live on a level of metaphor, rather than … Continue reading Friday Philosophy…Metaphor

Friday Philosophy…Sleep

I've made it past 9:00 p.m. I consider this a real grown up time, so if I go to bed immediately - it's no harm, no foul. I think I may have been ready to sleep right after dinner. I have this salad I order whenever my Mom and I go to Yardhouse - I … Continue reading Friday Philosophy…Sleep
