Shedding 

I probably should have written this in the years 2014 or 2015, because after all, that’s how I spent the former (I did allude to it, in this post about my year 2014 in review, though).  To give myself a little credit, I did indeed make a reference to it in 2014’s year-end post, but … More Shedding 

Layers of What Is 

What Is, is all around us.  Look at What Is, with eyes open.  If you think about it, you might see it in layers.  As usual, I’ll explain. The first layer is obvious.  On this level, everyone (with default vision) will see the same thing.  You’ll see the sky, the trees/grass/shrubbery, etc.  What Is, on … More Layers of What Is 

The 10 most fascinating facts about the human body ~ Part 1

Out of a total of 850+ posts I’ve ever written (not bragging, just having a reality-based Holy Cow Moment), this one is probably one of the most exciting for me to write.  I know I’ve been a little list-happy lately, and this post is no different, but I think this one is worth enduring yet … More The 10 most fascinating facts about the human body ~ Part 1

Sometimes, if you hang in there long enough, the seemingly impossible happens 

It’s been an exciting past few weeks!  There seems to be never a dull moment.  (Was that even grammatically correct?) Some of y’all know that my partner is legally blind.  The best anyone can guess is that it happened by way of chromosomal damage due to his father’s exposure to Agent Orange while in Vietnam … More Sometimes, if you hang in there long enough, the seemingly impossible happens 

2016 ~ The year the lightning bolt struck and everything changed…

Susan Miller, over at Astrology Zone (by far the best and most accurate astrologer I’ve ever known), had said early on in 2016 that Virgos could expect to be able to draw a line in the sand between everything that occurred before 2016 and everything that occurred afterward.  Although she didn’t (couldn’t) provide specifics (everyone’s … More 2016 ~ The year the lightning bolt struck and everything changed…

Beating anxiety (How it feels to start a business)

I’m cold. I’m wrapped in a blanket, even though anyone else would say it’s plenty warm in the room.  I want nothing more than to disappear, to become one with the blankets I’m wrapped up in. I’m quiet. Incapable of saying much.  My brain is far too busy and conflicted for that.  I am petrified, … More Beating anxiety (How it feels to start a business)

No one knew me

The title of this post comes from a phrase buried deep in the lyrics of “Mad World” as covered by Gary Jules, which perfectly illustrate that isolated, alien feeling I have known for most of my life. I’m embarrassed to say that I actually had an idea for a blog post that would have been … More No one knew me

The Bucket List

When making New Year’s resolutions, especially as a Texan, it’s easy to Think Big and potentially bite off more than you can chew in one year.  It’s also easy to forget just how quickly a single year can pass; poof!–it’s gone before you know it.  But making those resolutions really gets one thinking…about life in … More The Bucket List
