  • Poetry – Scrambled Savior

    I meant to share this poem around Easter, but forgot. Guess I had too much going on. This poem just sort of wrote itself, with the images of both the commercial and sacred aspects of the holiday mixing together in my mind. It is not meant to be offensive to religion, but instead, to compare […]

  • An Attempt at Artsy Nature Photography

    Yesterday my husband and I went for a short walk at a local garden/park. We saw our first snake of the year: I also tried to take some artsy nature photos: I found a perfect crow feather that I put aside to pick up on my way back out of the park, but someone stole […]

  • CFS/ME Flare Up and Park Outing

    It’s been a rough week physically. I had a CFS/ME flare-up, which feels a lot like mono if you’ve ever had that, or the worse flu you can imagine. During these flare-ups, I run a fever, my body aches horribly, I feel too exhausted to move, too exhausted to breathe, and if I sit up […]

    Spring Come Quickly! Cute Bunny Collage

    Today I’m looking forward to spring! Warmer weather, sunshine, flowers, bunnies…I love it all and am ready to see winter slip into the past! I find that when springtime comes it always does wonders for my mental health, probably due to seasonal affective disorder, which always seems to be an issue in the wintertime. I […]

  • A Really Good Day!

    A Really Good Day!

    Today was a good day. For the first time in a long while, I actually felt like going out by myself and having some fun. The weather is really nice (which always affects my mood as well), hopefully it is a sign that spring is right around the corner! So I went to the library […]
