It can be both

I know I have mostly written and shared messages of hope and optimism during this weird and crazy season, and maybe that's been frustrating to some of you who are really struggling. I'm here today to tell you that I don't always feel like a ray of sunshine, or full of hope, optimism, excitement, and [...]

Twenty One Years

"You're no verra sensible, Sassenach, but I like ye fine. Let's go.”-Jamie, Outlander (Diana Gabaldon) This Saturday, April 18, is our "together-versary". Our relationship is old enough to sit down with us and look back on its life so far with an adult beverage! And what a life it's been! Early on, in the infant [...]

Wellness Wednesday 4/15/20

I just wrote my last Wellness Wednesday, it feels like, but here we are! I’m lying in bed with Ducky, helping him wind down for his nap, and trying to sort out what’s happened this past week, and how I want to move forward. Because, really, moving forward is the only answer. I start to [...]

Wellness Wednesday, 4/8/20

It's such a weird time, isn't it? I'm writing this on Friday, because it's been just a crazy week, energy wise and emotionally.

Wellness Wednesday 3/18/20

Crazy Times, y’all... Obviously there’s a lot to talk about, and I’m sere you’ll hear a lot from me on many topics, but today I’m going to try to stay on topic while still sharing how I’m making the best of a hard and crazy situation, and maybe-hopefully- helping you find new ways to do [...]

Some thoughts on creative socializing and mental health… (I need a better title)

So obviously with all that’s happening with coronavirus we’re all having a lot of adjustments to our new (temporary) normal. Many are beginning to work from home, most to practice social distancing on some level, and that’s good and wise, but for most everyone it’s entirely new, and maybe even scary and depressing. For me [...]
