Unexpected Love Letters

It is not a requirement that love letters come from a romantic interest. While in the midst of "KonMari-ing" my closet, I've come across so many different notes from friends and family.  Things that meant so much to me, at the time, that they were shoved in a box to eventually be found while cleaning my...

Finding Time to Write

  I was drawn to the writer at New Mercies For Me  because we both have difficulty finding time to write.  A challenge from The Daily Post prompted us to collaborate on a post.  In tackling the issue of how to find time to write, we each came to the conclusion that for our individual schedules, scheduling a...

Music is a refuge

The 10-12 classmates in attendance, plus  a few spouses, represented 25% of the class. Many others live in town, but for whatever reason, stayed... Continue Reading →

Things I’ve learned in my 48th Summer

As my father rapidly approaches his 70th birthday, his return to his "roots" has left the rest of the family rolling our eyes.  The fraction of his genetic code that came from Louisiana means that he must now greet all strangers in French.  The portion that can be traced back to the Native Americans means...

Everyday Inspiration: Day 1 -Why write?

I write, or type, because it is therapeutic.  Both writing and typing are as relaxing to me as knitting is to others.  Since childhood, I've used writing as a way to release my frustrations, clarify my thoughts, and identify solutions to problems.  Writing is similar to  having a conversation with oneself, but without appearing mentally ill...
