Creativity In Winter

Creativity In Winter

  The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?   ~J. B. Priestley     With the solstice […]

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

  Today marks the celebration of Christmas around the world.  It is a day of hope, a day of new beginnings, a day for families and friends to gather together.  It means so much to so many, and yet we all have our different memories, traditions and beliefs.   And during this time of Christmas, […]

Poetry Sunday-Push Pause Please

  Push Pause Please   As our days speed by and I fight for my glee, I long for a way to regain my sanity. For time to stand still for just a little while…. to push pause please and bring me a smile:   Pause for a bit of ruminating Pause for a saunter or stroll, Pause […]

Poetry Sunday-Winter Begins

Poetry Sunday-Winter Begins

Winter Begins     Flowing, following the elusive light as the season wanes and darkens Deeper into its cold, biting phase.   Searching, basking, squinting against the rays as they rise higher Making diamonds in the snow.   Slowly brightening our fleeting daylight as colors play on the clouds, Beginning and ending each day.   […]

Channeling Anger

Channeling Anger

“I want to say somewhere: I’ve tried to be forgiving. And yet. There were times in my life, whole years, when anger got the better of me. Ugliness turned me inside out. There was a certain satisfaction in bitterness. I courted it. It was standing outside, and I invited it in.” Nicole Krauss     […]
