Category: Pen and Caffeinated Ponderings

The Elocutions, ponderings, caffeinated addictions, of my mind. In other words, all things writing, coffee, thoughts and opinions.

THE Idea

A question asked by many. What is your process? Writing process that is. Many times I have no idea how to answer this question. You would think as a type A personality (most of the time) I would be organized in my writing, starting with outlines, notes, washboards, etc. This makes me laugh. Because it couldn’t be farther from the ….

The Pull of the Water Draws Me Home

I came to love mermaids quite accidentally. The Little mermaid wasn’t even my favorite Disney movie, or finding Nemo or any mystical mermaid movie, though I do have to say I did like the thirteenth year (If you are a nineties kid, you know what movie I am talking about). I did and do love the ocean. As a kid ….

Lessons in a Piece of Glass

I am probably certifiably crazy, but while the majority of people decided to inebriate on spirits, I chose to spend my New Years at the ocean. I know the ocean in December!? Commit this girl! Alas this is the same girl who went into the ocean in March. While I hate the cold, I will suck it up if it ….

I see Nothing

Writing has always been my real therapy. (my apologies to my therapist…if it is any consolation you are on speed dial) Even when I knew my actions were dangerous, that I was hurting myself, I still had no control. Because it was the only thing keeping me sane. It was a glass of wine and Xanax combined keeping me calm ….

Sorry Not Sorry

Why as women do we constantly feel the need to apologize? It is something I have thought long and hard about. Especially with amazing women like Jennifer Pastiloff have begun a dialogue about it. In fact, Pantene has just released a new commercial about women over apologizing. I admit, I am well known for over apologizing. At least, I used ….

Choices

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it. ~Kevyn Aucoin Delayed. The worst word a traveler can hear. Well that ….

Wintertime Blues

Keep your face to the sunshine, and you can not see a shadow. The last few days I have been so invigorated. The weather has been warm, the sun shining. Even the ups and downs of cold and warmth can’t get me down. I feel like the winter blues, which I tend to get badly, just fall off, like discarded ….

Remembrance

“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.” ~ Mark Twain You always remember the before and after. What your life was like before, and what it was like after. Three years out, it is crazy to believe where I am now, and where I was ….
