I have been thinking about all that is happening in the world and how it seems we are in a state of flux. We have riots, hate crimes, people looking for connections, but feeling lost, broken familial bonds, angst and unrest. 

What a list! I don't know about you, but I get exhausted just reading that first paragraph. I've begun the habit of hiding posts on FaceBook because it hurts to see what is happening out 'there'. I did the same thing in 1991 when the Gulf War was on TV. I was glued to the set while going about my day as a stay at home mom of three children. I knew I was in trouble when airplanes flew overhead and I would start to panic and scream from the anxiety. I stopped watching news and reading the paper. 

My stress leve...

It has been an interesting, challenging, emotional and enlightening journey these past six months since I decided I wanted to teach yoga for therapy. I am not going to get involved with all the ubiquitous debates about East verses West and why we should not bother with this tradition, because that is another post entirely.

I want to focus on the positive, the healing, the journey and the human soul. I started out broken. Six years ago, I had a ruptured brain aneurysm, and survived even though I should have died. I had a 15% of survival. That's as close to death as a person can get before coming back to wipe off the fingerprints from the Grim Reaper off their shoulder. This changed my life. I was at peace for the first time in yea...

 Decided this is going to be another year of firsts for me. Most years are...I do not allow the grass to grow under my feet. Never have. I have always lived in my head and always five years into the future. It is great for planning, organizing and seeing the 'big picture', but sucks though for living in the moment. I have also realized that with the decision to pull up stakes and move with the possibility of writing and editing full time, I have come full circle, where I was meant to be. All the running around trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grow up has finally materialized. Wish I knew then.......but then again I will never be that person sitting on the deck, at 80, wondering what my life could have become. I wi...

Stories circulate in my head on a constant basis. Reeling them in and trying to get them into neat little boxes that eventually intertwine and could possibly become something interesting and cohesive is an entirely different matter. So I keep either a notebook or an electronic version of a notebook with me at all times. I write down ideas, thoughts, weird things I've seen and wait for the magic to begin.

My son and I have recently begun watching the X-Files from the beginning and I realized a few elements of the show had wound up in my stories. Weird. I love the way the brain works. I love that human memories can take a dozen different experiences, warp them all together into one gigantic blob and put them in our frontal cor...

I decided I want to be a hippie.  No, wait. A Hippie.....looked up the the synonyms and I guess it kind of fits:

Main Entry:  bohemian

Part of Speech:  noun

Definition:  nonconformist

Synonyms: artist, beatnik, dilettante, flower child, freespirit, gypsy, hippie*, 


I am an artist, a horror

writer, definitely a freespirit, always wanted to be a gypsy so I am guessing Hippie, it the way, when you read this, you have to read it with a Southern accent, because in my head, that is how I sound. Always.

2012 was a wake up call in a series of wake up calls for my husband and myself. A friend, with whom we were both close to, died. She was 51, out walking her dog...
