Bubbles on my Latte and Pink Polish

My pastel pink nails clink against my coffee mug as I tap out the melody coming over the radio. I boldly face all the controversy and problems that lay ahead one word at a time. The letters fall across my keyboard like a scrabble board game. I look down at my notebook that has aContinue reading “Bubbles on my Latte and Pink Polish”

The Pressing Solitude of Decisions

A decision pressed closely against the glass Reverberates a prism of thought Of connection. Of dissonance. A decision of solitude. A decision of birth or denial. A decision pressed closely against the glass Strains its ugly ear to find you. Strains into your deepest thoughts. Listening, pressing close. Making a crowd or closing in solitude.Continue reading “The Pressing Solitude of Decisions”

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.

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.

Editing News, Coffee and Online Dating

Rattlesnake Ridge, Snoqualmie Falls

My foot heaved over the ruddy roots as Ruby sprang ahead of me. Ruby is my sister’s dog. I was climbing Rattlesnake Ridge not 6 months after my surgery. It was an amazing feeling of triumph. One of those feelings you get after doing something to the max. Pushing yourself to your limits. As theContinue reading “Rattlesnake Ridge, Snoqualmie Falls”

He Keeps His Promises

This morning as I wandered up the long red dirt hill I looked beneath my feet at the crunching gravel. I was immersed in thoughts, bouncing around my head like bouncing balls. Scotland, volunteer, work, college, the whole gamut seems overwhelming, or so it seems. This is true of most people my age juggling family,Continue reading “He Keeps His Promises”

Cinnamon Popovers- Enjoying a Beautiful Friday

As the smell of cinnamon filled my small kitchen I glanced at the Roman numerals on the old clock. Isn’t it interesting how time plays such an integral part of baking but also with life? If you think about baking is making something new just like every choice we make in this life. Interesting… sorryContinue reading “Cinnamon Popovers- Enjoying a Beautiful Friday”

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 itContinue reading “Knitted Blankets and Puenta Higuero Lighthouse”
