Laugh Lines

Post Image

I like my face. I like my skin. I like my body. Strange, I know, to see a 33-year-old female write those words and mean them, but I do. (I am also unashamed about my age.) While working from the inside out is important, it’s undeniable that what greets me in the mirror is a […]

Omega

Post Image

Yes. In all my years of studying the English language, this word is one I never truly considered and analyzed, until now. Before, it was simply an affirmation.

Post Image

A couple of days ago, I couldn’t lift a TV by myself. This infuriated me. Notice, I use the word infuriated. Not irritated or annoyed or amused, but infuriated, like I nearly punched the blasted thing through its screen. There were multiple forces at play besides the mere weight of it. It’s one of those […]

River and Valley

Post Image

I’m sitting here, watching my kids play in the sandbox in the backyard. They have the hose on and are making rivers and mountains and valleys and streams. Plus a “bakery.” Can’t have mud without a bakery. I watch them a lot lately, closely. They’ve been through much more than I had by that age, […]
