Knitted Blankets and Puenta Higuero Lighthouse

The rocks beneath me shifted as I climbed the steep mountainous slope. Puerto Rico is a magnificent place to travel, with hot weather, good food, and kind people. And the scenery, let me tell you! I love traveling. Traveling is like stepping into a sailboat, the wind, like the adventure, will take you where it […]

Small Workout Spinach: Gains

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1ZzdBgLtZg Munching on my fresh spinach blueberry salad I ponder the lyrics “I’m goin’ back to the earth.” Mraz really exemplifies a way of thinking that I quite agree with. Honestly, I think that everyone could gain something from these lyrics. Mraz, encourages listeners to “turn off your phone.” This is such succinct advice yet […]

Inspiration from Poppins: England

“Anything can happen if you let it.” This somewhat comical and very inspirational song in Mary Poppins, my favorite Disney movie, though honestly, it’s a tossup with Beauty and the Beast. Mary Poppins is one of my favorite Disney heroines whose lyrics I try to live out. This song is so inspirational and urges you […]

How Not to Make Coffee-

My trials began at 6:01 am, in making Ethiopian coffee started today as I wrangled a ginger root. This darned Ethiopian coffee has me by the neck, I’m telling you!  After slicing a nickel sized sliced of ginger I gingerly dropped it into my pot of boiling water and coffee grounds. Previously, I had added […]

Hot Tea and Camel Soap

It all started with tea.   A sweet blend of cloves and orange spice brightened my day around 4:00… Wait, perhaps this should be night? morning? And a luscious camel milk soap, which leaves quite a lovely scent, mind you. I do find it quite refreshing. This morning I awoke to a soft patter outside my window. […]

5:45; Writing and Jam

Coffee and Saskatoon jam in Kansas. Anyway, this jam is the Coup De Grâce of jams

A Pirate’s Life for Me!- What Workouts to do One-Legged

As I find myself quite ill-equipped to do workouts with one leg, I would like to share with you some that quite adequately suit the pirate-life, I find myself currently disposed to. So, speaking pirate to pirate, I will give you the “guidelines” (Pirate’s of the Carribean, anyone?). As, I’m sure you would assume, dear […]

The Fire of Red Birds Imagination

As my pen’s ink shot across the page in freehand the fire before me blazed. Seems as if the fire was also alight in my imagination as I churned out the words of my first short story. This time of recovery has greatly encouraged me to publish two books on Amazon. Which, God-willing will fair […]

Time Slipping through Milk

Splitch. splotch. the milk dropped in my coffee like a cannon exploding into a waterfall. The morning was grey and held silent promises of household chores. This farm seems stuck very much in the pioneer days. The wind whistles across the thresh as I gingerly step in the kitchen grasping the day late newspaper.  Yes, […]

A Shot Rang Out: Insomnia: One Day Closer

Insomnia has its bouts of bitterness.

A Return on Inside: The Brain TBI

I was feeling terrible, this morning, with a sad rain in my heart and a great irritation for living in my rental. A haphazardly stacked pile of library books litter my nightstand as I reached for the pull string on my lamp. The packing ensues. It’s 6:20; no surprise, I’m just thankful its not 3:45 […]
