Moving Along

Summer is at an end, though I suppose we knew that already as Fall officially started last weekend and we have the cooler temps to prove it.  Still, we want to hang on to it just a little longer.  Within just the past week the days have been warmer again and without the cold rain […]

Good-Bye Yoga X

There’s a number of us at work who strive to live healthier lives by exercising and watching what we eat.  The span of our ages is nearly 20 years from youngest to oldest, yet the fact that we all work to maintain some level of health and exercise blurs the years between us.  Some bike […]

The Group Begins

I met with my writers’ group tonight for the second time now.  Each time there has been a different group of people.  Since there had been so few at the first meeting I was hoping there would be more this time around and that we could actually get around to critiquing each other’s work, which […]

ArtPrize – Day Two

After dealing with the hot and cold of yesterday’s outing, I decided to dress a little lighter today, especially since I didn’t know what the temperature conditions would be in my venue.  Little did I realize that not only was it cooler today (especially since there was even less sun) but it was A LOT […]

ArtPrize – Day One

ArtPrize, ArtPrize, ArtPrize … ArtPrize – can you guess what I did today?  Well, if you guessed going to see ArtPrize entries you’d be partially right.  I had an “event” before that as, well, a prelude to that, you could say.  I first met up with cousins, siblings (and their spouses) at Bentham’s, for brunch. […]

A Change In Plans

Thinking today may be my last day for bike riding this year, I wanted to make it memorable.  So, instead of following my usual route, I took the new route that I’ve been following the last couple of weeks, only, I did it in reverse.  Well, not backwards on my bike, just starting where I […]

The Drive

When redoing a room in my house, I’m always intrigued about the many paint layers on a wall and the various color choices by previous owners.  How many years went by in between layers?  How much history unfolded during that layer?  What personal history and emotions were associated with the room when it was that […]

Finding My Muse

I finished the second book of my unread books today.  To refresh your memory, it was a book on writing by Margaret Atwood.  Well, to be more specific, it was a collection of essays on the topic of writing.  Essays don’t read the same as fiction, or even nonfiction accounts.  While the writing was of […]

A Day To Forget

Some days are just … off kilter from the very beginning.  For such days you don’t necessarily want a “do-over”, you want a memory wipe so you forget about what a horrible jumble it was.  Unfortunately, I did not do a memory wipe, instead I’m recording the day in detail here on my blog for […]
