So the Darkness Shall Be the Light

So the Darkness Shall Be the Light

The Winter Solstice is one of my most thoughtful times. I suppose because I spent so much time with darkness. That sounds terribly dramatic–and it was until I found a way to live with it.

I know what all the silverware means,

But I just can’t stop thinking about how there is an element of fear in public places that I didn’t have before.

Prepared for Serendipity

Prepared for Serendipity

Reverb Day 8: Alchemy and Serendipity The answer for serendipity is easy. It happened a little more than a year ago, but it has made my life immeasurably better–finding a good friend again. Another friend happened to post an instagram pic of getting her hair done and who was doing her hair but one of […]

Sentence first- verdict afterwards

Sentence first- verdict afterwards

Reverb Day 7 I am in such a holding pattern, I don’t know what I am the verdict of. Still here. Still trying to move forward but not lose touch with with the love, hearings and endings I’ve found from moving back home. It is a good place in many ways and I’ve crossed over […]

Unweaving

Unweaving

Reverb Day 6 Looking at the thoughts and patterns that may be holding you back from living the life you want, trace back through the generations of your family and see if your beliefs originated generations ago. In 2016, how can you bring healing to these patterns of thought that are holding you back? There […]

Behind Blue Eyes

Behind Blue Eyes

Reverb Day 5 Supposed to show a picture of myself on this one. I hate having my picture taken. I have a round head, an overbite and not much of a chin. I’m seeing wrinkles and I pick at my cuticles. I have finally outgrown the scare cut of a year ago August, thanks to […]

A Hollow Show

A Hollow Show

Reverb Day 4 There are ways to feel better when I’m just keeping my head above water. Unfortunately those are the hardest things to do when you find yourself in the middle of the ocean.   Living in a house you might need to show at any time is very tiring. Having people you don’t […]

Lonesome, talking to the moon

Lonesome, talking to the moon

Reverb Day 3 I haven’t spend much time outside at night. Not this summer, with all the rain, not recently in the fall. I used to do this every weekend at least for a bit. What changed? Some friends moved away. I liked to sit on our patio with them and drink wine and smoke […]

Stuff Happens

Stuff Happens

Reverb Day 2 I’m a little behind, that is no surprise. So much stuff going on. Trying to maintain a semblance of a real life while selling a house is not the easiest thing to do. We’ve purged and changed  and rearranged. We clean every single day.  But it is so important that Bean have […]

Home is where your family is

Home is where your family is

Project Reverb Prompt: Home: Tell us about what home meant to you this year. Are you a homebody? Did you do a renovation? Move? Redecorate? We have taken down many of our paintings, our sculptures. Much of the personality in our home is being removed day by day. We are painting and cleaning and working […]

Never means 2 weeks

Never means 2 weeks

Project Reverb prompt: “What did you think you’d NEVER do. But you did this year. Why? What changed your mind?” Someone told me a long time ago that never means two weeks. So I try not to say never.  I do see some things have ended but I haven’t said that I’ll never be back in […]

Thank you, no

Thank you, no

Project Reverb Prompt: Thank You Note: Write a thank-you note to someone who broke your heart, or made your life harder than it needed to be. Bonus points for sharing it here. Wow..every fiber of my being says No to this. A big fat no way.

Somewhat Joyful Discoveries

Somewhat Joyful Discoveries

Day 20 Project Reverb prompt: “What products have you discovered this year that you love?  Tell us all about them, and why you love them.” I really like the shirts from SighCo. J had a very Cthulhu Christmas. And these GreenForest baskets have been very cute for organizing. Other than that I like Tarte Colored […]

Wrestling with Symbolism

Wrestling with Symbolism

Day 19 Project Reverb prompt: “What did you wrestle with in 2014?  What did you learn?  What challenges do you foresee in 2015?” I love how these keep circling back, as if to drive the point home. This is a way to recognize how not to repeat the same painful things or the wrong path […]

Enlightened Nourishment

Enlightened Nourishment

Day 18 Project Reverb prompt: “Did you have an “ah ha” moment this year? Was it a big one? Or just a small enlightenment?” Dammit, I had a long one written and it was eaten. It was a series of ahas. 1. This is how I look. It is not a phase. I will probably […]

Magic A**hole Work

Magic A**hole Work

Day 17  Project Reverb: Work: What sort of work did you do in 2014? Was it new to you? Did you take on new responsibilities? Change jobs? Or take on a new task at home? I just started a new job as a web dev at the end of 2013. So it was all new […]
