Neo 70’s Revival Music? Huh?

I have lived in Texas all my life. Growing up in a small town as a teen here was a little like what I imagined being at the tail end of space would be like. By the time all the new stuff reached us (e.g. music, fashion, fads), it was all...

Life Goes On

Hello, my Darlings. Life throws you into a spin every now and then, and right now it’s my turn to be thrown off the merry-go-round. The last two weeks have been busier than I wanted them to be and will continue to be busy until after June 6th. There have been...

Because…

Hollow By Jesi Scott     i have space now. it’s empty, quiet, voids even in the shadows. places now to put things on the bare hangars left in the wardrobe.   the music box left to twirl (it’s tinny melody echoes in the barren rooms), forgotten papers, books, a picture-...

How was your Mother’s Day, moms? Mine was the best it probably could have been, all things considered. Big Son made me my favorite muffins (cranberry orange) and eggs and served both with some hot tea. Then he gave me a poem he wrote for me and his graduation picture in...

Decompressing

Hello, my darlings! I apologize for taking a few days away from the blog. My two April challenges ended and I apparently did not foresee the emotional toll it would take on me. Life has a funny way of forcing you to slow way the heck down. So, when the train...

April Challenges Bring May Recovery

There is still a post in the Blogging A to Z Challenge to write, one to genuflect about our progress and how the month went. The final encore before the curtain is drawn for another year. When I began both April challenges I thought it would end up being a breeze....

Elvis Has Left the Building

It’s done. The last day of both challenges. I’m going to miss it. I’ve met some new people, read some interesting blogs, and cemented current friendships. Not that we have to stop, but now we won’t be required to keep up with our blogs or visit others. It will be a...
