Darkened Hope: Interrupted

Greetings fellow adventurers! How was your weekend? Mine? A little eventful. A tornado passed near our house Friday night and we were without electricity the rest of the night and on into Saturday.

Confession Time

Happy Wednesday y’all! So. I have a confession to make. You see, I’ve been looking for ways to relax a bit and one of the ways people relax is through watching television shows. So I thought I’d give it a go. I haven’t really watched TV since Buffy the Vampire Slayer saved the world with … Continue reading »

Creative Careers

Sometimes I sit back and think: What am I doing? I’m sure many creatives struggle with balancing reality with dreams. Chasing desires of expression and art. How does art fit in with our world of jobs and bills and responsibilities? It’s an interesting contemplation. One, I think, circles forever and could very well make us … Continue reading »

Creatives at Work

Earlier this month, Kristen Lamb blogged: A Culture Addicted to FREE: How Free is Poisoning the Internet and Killing the Creatives. It’s a good, thought-provoking article. The mentality of wanting something for nothing isn’t new. It’s tempting, isn’t it? Who doesn’t want something for free or get a good deal on it? I know deep down … Continue reading »

The days can be dark and dirty and messy and long. So I’m on a mission to find beauty in the ordinary. In my quest to live a life balanced between reality and dreams, I’m discovering how much I’m out of balance. Ha!

Juggling Worlds & Kiddos

Greetings adventurers! The time has come for juggling worlds, fiery irons, and kiddos. The days grow darker, shorter. And here I am in the deep end, barely keeping my head above the water.

Summer begins!

Happy end of the school year!!! I know, I know, we are a little late to the party. Bad weather and all. But, oh my, where has this time gone? Can you believe it’s already June?!

The Inevitable

Happy Friday y’all! What a crazy month February has been! I still look back and wonder what happened. I had started out so strong with goals and plans and lists. Unfortunately, it all went south. Fast. It might have had something to do with 10 days of back-to-back meetings, three major shopping trips, and a … Continue reading »
