Music And Words And Dilettante, Oh My

“All your life you’ve never seen woman, taken by the wind Would you stay if she promised you heaven? Will you ever win?”  -Fleetwood Mac, Rhiannon There are two things that get me so excited I can barely contain myself. Well, three, but this isn’t that kind of blog now is it? I’m talking about […]

We All Need A Little Mayhem!

A little over a year ago I met Kelly of Are You Finished Yet. She was one of the first bloggers I started engaging with in my blogging infancy. She allowed me to sit at the “cool table” and made me feel included and not at all stupid or out of my league. Since then […]

Bad Behaviour

Today I’m opening up my home (because this place is very much like my home) and inviting someone very special in. This is one of those guests you make a of fuss over. You break out the good wine and the best glasses. You light the candles and put on some funky new music because you really […]

The Writing Process Blog Tour

  “Staring at empty pages, Centered ’round the same ole plot” -Traffic, Empty Pages Earlier this summer one of my favorite bloggers nominated me to participate on The Writing Process Blog Tour. My first thought was process? You mean there should be a process? My second thought was me? You want to know how and why and what […]

Night Owls Rule

  “And I don’t want to hold her down, don’t want to break her crown, When she says… Let’s go, I like the night life baby” -The Cars, Let’s Go Every morning I wake up early, just as the sun is coming up. I shuffle out to the kitchen and start my coffee before heading […]

Losing My Breath, Ignoring My Voice

This Discrimination Is Still OK

“Pardon me while I burst into flames, I’ve had enough of the world and people’s mindless games. Pardon me while I burst and rise above the flame. Pardon me, pardon me. I’ll never be the same.” -Incubus, Pardon Me We live in a world where discrimination still happens but it often happens in the shadows. […]

A Life Unplanned

“Then we’d go running on faith, All of our dreams would come true, And our world will be right When love comes over me and you” -Eric Clapton, Running On Faith If I could sum up the way I live my life, I would say that I wing it. I feel my way. I kind […]

The First Heartbreak Will Be the Last

“I see him sometimes and the look in his eyes Is one of a man who’s lost treasures untold, But my heart is gold, I took back my soul” -Lauryn Hill, I Used To Love Him I remember my first heartbreak like it was yesterday. I fell in love for the first time at the […]

Blood and Fire

    Lost. Floundering. Blindly making my way around sharp corners and endless dark hallways. Grasping and reaching, desperately, for something to hold onto. Anything. Only finding empty air. Heart pounding. Thumping in a panic fueled adrenaline. The feelings. Fear. Anger. Angst. Sorrow. Used. Forsaken. Empty. Always empty. Then… Don’t give up. You don’t give […]
