So, I feel like I am often on the outside looking in or vice versa… Do you?

So, I have never felt that I truly fit in anywhere, completely. As a result, I have in some ways diminished the sparkling personality that is part of who I am in order to not be ‘so me’. At other times I am all about being overly sparkly and letting people deal with it. I […]

So, you don’t have to have a niche to write happy…

So, I have decided that I am going to write happy. For me that means I am going to write what I want, despite the likes or comments or accolades. I know that if I write about something to do with clean eating or fitness, that I will get many hits because it is a […]

So, I want to Make Today Awesome, but…

So, I was passing out info for an event and saw this cool doormat. It spoke to me. A lot. I have tried so hard to keep a positive attitude and want to be happy everyday, but it’s difficult! I feel that I am constantly on this hamster wheel of trying to make ends meet […]

So, on that poetry tip again…

Magical Mystical Miracle A little girl with big dreams but small wings can do enormously great things. It isn’t arduous to give a push to encourage such a majestic being. She has shine and a glow doesn’t it show? She’s predestined for things uncommon, with gifts so rare. That something-different-vibe for days, spreads around like […]

So, another love poem while lying in the bed…

Paired by more than happenstance Through the misty air I could feel your presence. Though my eyes were closed and the waves were crashing hard against the rocks, I knew you were there. Even though there were no plans to have this clandestine meeting, It didn’t surprise me that you traveled a continent away. That’s […]

So, when will people just let racism die??

So with all of these videos and memes lately about racist people, it’s really hard for me to believe we’re in 2018. We all have our prejudices, and if someone says they don’t, they’re lying, it’s innate. I grew up in the Deep South and lived in a white neighborhood and went to a white […]

So, wow! Italia. I never posted about how great it was (is)! Pt.1 Rome

So, the lucky and blessed and deserving girl who I am, was whisked away to Roma in November with ML. The kiddo was pissed! But hey, it took me 4 decades to get there, so she can wait. Roma and Venezia. Ciao Bellas! From the minute we got there, we were in love with Italia. […]

So, we went to an early weekend of Farmer’s Markets!

So, Farmer’s Markets in D.C. area typically don’t open until May and they don’t close up until November. As this super cool farmer lady told us, there is competition to open them earlier and earlier. Well, whether all of the crops were ready on Saturday to be dug up or not, we (myself and ML), […]

So, everything we go for in life is truly mental…

So, I have started back on my clean eating today and had caffeine which is a no-no. My plan is no caffeine, soy, gluten/wheat, alcohol and no dairy. I was sick for close to a month from almost the end of February, until about 3 weeks ago and I lost a lot of weight. But […]

So, if who you know is what gets you a job, what if you don’t know anyone (with clout)?

So, ML was saying last night that one of the reasons I am not able to get a job that I deserve or truly desire is because it is all in who you know. I guess I don’t know the “write” people.:) I want to get a writing or editing job because I have done […]
