Holding Tight

The letters twist to and fro. As if they knew the scribes struggle…

Thankful for L.I.F.E.

I’ve been reflecting on life as it is for me. I was talking with one of my good friends the other day saying how I felt in a rut. But after reflecting on this I’ve accomplished so many of my goals in these past few months! One of my goals was to become a barista…

Held Together with Some Cawter Pins

“Held Together with Some Cawter Pins” is a line from I think one of the funniest songs I’ve heard by Susan Warren. I have a first rate experience with cawter pins, any surprise? Its called “City Kids.” While I think this song is beyond funny it uses hyperbole in comparing city kids and country kids….

Coffee; Standing in your Way of Happiness?

    By: Maggie Kuhn     Did you know that nearly 50% of American adults drink coffee everyday? Praised by the media and daily drinkers, coffee has a high-ranking place in the American diet. Harvard studies show that coffee is high in natural polyphenols, which are micronutrients that have been linked with preventing cancer,…

          A Sculpture of my Writing

Writing has power, it can change minds, empower the poor (of wealth or of heart) and change people’s actions. Words are powerful things. Writing is like sculpting clay. Like sculpting a coil pot, every ring has different attributes, maybe a little rough, maybe a little darker, like rough drafts, villians, or character changes. Sculpting is…

Changes, Biking, setting My World on Fire

As my bike skidded to a stop in front of the library I felt the chill rain against my face. Rain is such a beautiful thing that cleanses away all the dirt and griminess. I see it as a refresh from what happens on a day to day basis. And Lord knows we all need…

A Dove and a Mirror

As I gazed in the mirror at my wood wicked chair I wondered what was is to come. A dove flighted off a branch and I wondered; wondered deep. Wandering through the paths of all the “could be’s” and the “might’s.” To a deep wonder. I stood gazing back at my old life. Had I…

Merry of Soul

This morning broke clean and chill over the Kansas hills. This morning I am listening to Russian soundtracks from Toygar. Which are classical and hauntingly beautiful. Sura, Toygar The coffee pot at my house took a turn for the worst so I’ve been enjoying the gifts of my Keurig. Haha, which is quite amazing! I…

Diversion through Workouts

“A Hundred Bad days…I ain’t scared…” This is exactly what workouts give me. Strength and diversion to defeat my fear and my bad days. It’s like for the time of my workout I’m transported to another time and place. I guess a workout is just such a diversion to normal thinking. It just is really…

Editing News, Coffee and Online Dating

Perk, perk… As the coffee pot spit out its merry little music, I flipped through my work manual. The rain tumbled down the gutters and spit out onto the bright green grass into a little pool. As my Spotify churned out lyrics to “Symphony” I cringed at the article on my computer. I had been…

Clean Windows and Bright Thoughts

In the westward window hang colored glass crystals with cacti beneath. Hopefully not a bad omen for the day. Light streams in the brightly scrubbed glass I cleaned this morning. It makes a person wonder in that fraction of brightness why any darkness could exist. But that is momentous. Life happens and darkness wins sometimes….
