Solace and Seattle

I am pleased to introduce you to the two main characters in 12 Pairs of Gloves. I have come to love these two, as they are the impetus to the direction of the story. We meet Solace for the first time when she’s preparing for an upheaval that will leave her feeling more alone than…

The Plot

I’m pretty excited to start sharing my novel’s ideas and people with you. Before I go into the plot, I’d like to give you a little background on how I got here in the first place. It began with good friends over a discussion about Leap Day and the odds of being born on that…

AHHH!!!

So, I haven’t written here in MONTHS! Why not? Couple of reasons: So much fundamental life change has taken place that I’ve had a hard time keeping up. So, I’ve been more reflective internally, quieter, just letting it be, making my world itsy-bitsy and teeny-tiny. Seriously. I’m writing a book. No for real, a book….

What if?

What if there were no countries? What if we saw it in a different way? What if we didn’t see us divided by borders and discerned by opinion, but instead as a people, a species, a family? We are all, all of us, human. Living on one planet, our home. What if we actually worked…

I am a compilation of faces, and expressions, and hope, and loss, and joy, and anger, and love and fear, and dark and light. I am a soul of wonder and awe and magic. I am a well of life ~ I have been completely empty, and utterly filled. But most often, somewhere in between,…

Heavy Breathers

Early this morning, around 3:00am, the two goofballs in the photos below decided to sleep in my bed. And that’s when it all began. First, Margot and Renley, respectively, came into my room and decided to sniff everything  within sniffing range. We’re talking some serious police dog type sniffing that was intense enough to wake…

Inner Wisdom

Our bodies are incredibly intuitive. For the most part, we know exactly what we need to run efficiently. We know we need fruits, vegetables, water, sleep, exercise, and quiet time. We know when we get all of these things we can think clearer, run faster, make better decisions, and feel better overall. But what can…

We The People, of the United States…

I have spent a lot of time trying to process what just happened in our country. I completely agree that where we are is the result of both political parties and because democrats didn’t take Trump seriously enough until it was too late, he now sits in wait to take the highest office in the…

Why I’m Writing a Novel

20,000 words in so far. It’s about our human race. Our duties, our responsibilities, our doom, and our hope. It’s about how we treat each other, and how we treat our planet, our only home. The “sick to death” incidents below happen almost daily. Am I really that different? Is my way of thinking really…

Removing the Unnecessary: Recipe

There are a lot of blogs, websites, ebooks, etc, on how to make most of your own items like toothpaste, laundry soap, etc. Most talk about the health benefits of DIY products as well as the cost saving involved. And these are excellent and valid reasons to use DIY products! I’m here to expand on…
