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 […]
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 […]
“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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
Coffee and Saskatoon jam in Kansas. Anyway, this jam is the Coup De Grâce of jams
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
Insomnia has its bouts of bitterness.
I am excited for my surgery.
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 […]
