Happy Halloween my lovely readers! While everyone is getting their goblin and ghoul on, I am preparing for a writer’s dream (or perhaps nightmare?) Though I have written quite a bit of poetry, I don’t often publish it. In fact my last poem was posted a year and a half ago. Oy vey! But when the two AM muse strikes, you go with it. ….
“The things that block a writer are not the lack of words, but the same things that block all people – the difficulties of life.” ~ Max Apple There are days when I just can not get out of my own head. Not because I am immersed in my characters and their subsequent world like they are Angelina and Brad. Nor because ….
“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.” ~ Charles R. Swindoll I am a firm believer that people come into our life at times when we need that particular personality or traits ….
“Coffee is a language in itself.” ~ Jackie Chan I stand in line behind throngs of people impatiently waiting to order their jolt of much needed caffeine before headed to work. The pliantness of summer is behind us and the frenzy of fall has begun. Even Starbucks is ready with Pumpkin Spice signs every where. I could blame my sister for my ….
“By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer’s best of weather And autumn’s best of cheer.” ~ Helen Hunt Jackson Happy Hump Day! While some might think summer has ended with Labor Day a couple weeks ago, school in full swing now, Pumpkin products strong at Trader Joes, and of course Starbucks debuting their fall line up ….
“There’s something about most phobias where there’s a tiny, tiny corner where you think this really actually could happen.” ~ Roz Chast I think of myself as a pretty tough cookie. All those scenes on Grey’s totally fine. Pain equals no gain. Even critters, I have handled from mice in my hair to the New York City Roach. Do I like ….
“The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.” ~ Thucydides “Wake up! Wake up” my sister exclaimed as she shook me awake. “What?” I mumbled grumpily eyes still closed swatting her hand away blindly. It was the first year I ….
“I love the rebelliousness of snail mail, and I love anything that can arrive with a postage stamp. There’s something about that person’s breath and hands on the letter.” ~Diane Lane I swear I would have fit in as a fifties house wife: cooking, cleaning, and a love for good ole fashioned snail mail. There is some thing about snail mail ….
Every fashionista has dreams of wearing haute couture and heck maybe even strutting their stuff down the runway. While walking down a runway scares the bejesus out of me, I wouldn’t mind a pair of Heidi’s legs. And those clothes? Forget about it! I have had the pleasure of being subjected to fashion week and been so close (as in the ….
Probably the hardest part of a fashionista’s style is knowing what to wear when the seasons begin to change. Sadly it isn’t like the Misers where the weather stays the same.
