Finding our Muchness during chemo

Yesterday my mom had her first chemotherapy treatment.  About 99% of you — including some of my close friends — are now saying, “Oh my gosh, I had no idea!!”

Mom and I haven’t been keeping it a secret, but we’ve mostly only talked with a small group of very close friends and family. We …

Will you be my SOULmate?

Recently I was approached by the founder of the Society of Ultimate Living (SOUL), Karen Auld, asking if I’d like to be featured as a SOULmate on her website.  Who in the world would turn down the opportunity to be a soulmate?!?!  Especially when I’m still searching to find my soulmate!!

Karen does such wonderful …

A goose-bumpy story

Here's how it looked when I was done - professional on the left, qualities in the middle, personal on the right.

Hi everyone!  It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve met here…more about that at the end of the post.

But first…I HAVE to share with you this AMAZING experience I had last week.  Seriously…Mind…Blowing…

I spent last week in a beautiful town on the coast of Maine.  Being by the waves crashing against the rocks …

Is this worth celebrating?

A couple weeks ago, I participated in a local short-fiction contest.  The prompt they gave was to write a new story for an old song in 500 words or less.

I chose the song “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)” by Rupert Holmes, and wrote the same scenario from the point of view of the woman.  …

A tale of two emails

mindreader

This has been one heck of a strange day – not strange/bad, just strange/all-over-the-place.  And both the highs and the lows are very neatly illustrated by a pair of emails that came on either end of the day.

EMAIL #1

When I got to work this morning, I found an email from a newspaper reader …

I am more than my body

Naked in a room full of people

nude-in-public

Last night I had a crazy dream about being in an audition factory for reality television shows.  It really was like a factory – they’d audition a whole crowd of people and then they’d dismiss them and the another bus would show up and the whole thing would start again.

Whose voice are you listening to?

too-many-voices

Four weeks ago, I gave myself the gift of taking a blog vacation.  My attitude toward seeing and celebrating miracles hadn’t changed, but my attitude toward sitting down and writing several times a week had – I was feeling tired and uninspired and like I was working too hard for not enough joy.  So I …
