Bad Motives of a motherless child…

I sit in bed writing this with sleepy eyes, sipping coffee I screwed up and made too weak. I’m particularly tired because I’ve been up for hours after my sleep was unexpectedly interrupted. My sleep is frequently interrupted by an 80lb German Shepard who likes to be let out for a pee in the middleContinue reading “Bad Motives of a motherless child…”

Part II of the year in review. The best of the best …

September. Unpausing the pause …..Medication finished for the tick borne illness, baby steps into the sun, still feeling a little dazed and confused from the lingering symptoms, but time to make the grand return to work. “Work” << that’s the word old me would have normally followed up immediately and with an obnoxious amount ofContinue reading “Part II of the year in review. The best of the best …”

A year in the life of…

Now that I am shaking off my case of writers block, or returning from sabbatical, however I feel like framing this non writing time frame, I can’t help but feel that one of the biggest missed opportunities is not to have written any type of assessment at all on the changing of the year. NoContinue reading “A year in the life of…”

Nothing quite like a Mother’s love …A slightly different kind of story about a Mom 🖤

Squeezing between bodies as I made my way to the back of the bar, I brushed up against a tall lean figure standing with his back to me. He turned in my direction and as I glanced up I found myself locked into the wild eyed stare of an infamous local legend. I stumbled allContinue reading “Nothing quite like a Mother’s love …A slightly different kind of story about a Mom 🖤”

This is not about my mother …oh wait, everything’s about my mother….

I just received an alert reminding me that my annual payment was coming due for my website. It’s been a year. And what a year it has been!! I love acknowledging year anniversaries. I do it constantly. I’m obsessed with all things full circle and enjoy the opportunity to reflect on where I am asContinue reading “This is not about my mother …oh wait, everything’s about my mother….”

Cat Tales 🖤

I’m grieving … I’m grieving a 17 lb black cat named Massacre. A 17 lb black cat who 16 Valentine Days ago was born to a feral park dwelling mama. Massacre and I had something in common… My mother dwelled in the same park and was a bit feral herself. Shortly after this (then) scrawnyContinue reading “Cat Tales 🖤”

Holiday Hell 🎄🔥

If there is indeed an afterlife and if my life of sin should assign me eternal damnation as my ever after, I have a pretty good idea what my personal hot spot will look like. The glow of Hell’s fires will actually be the soft twinkling of holiday lights. The background noise won’t be theContinue reading “Holiday Hell 🎄🔥”

Somewhere in between the dark and the light…

It has been in my nature for a while now to reference the dark vs light quite a bit. I suppose I use it literally, biblically, figuratively, metaphorically, metaphysically…you know, all of the above. I just really like that whole light/dark vibe…I see where it is applicable in so many situations, but if this pastContinue reading “Somewhere in between the dark and the light…”

In “Deanna” wants me 🎶

I say “stories that are mine to tell”, but is this one really mine? Many memories overlap and intersect with someone else’s, but this story does not live in the black and white world of my memory vs theirs, having been created during shared experiences, thus creating a story we both call our own. ThisContinue reading “In “Deanna” wants me 🎶”

Just an old soul trying to get home 🔮⚜️💛

⚜️One last dna tale blogpost..which is actually the first dna tale that I wrote about and shared on my social media. Now having painted the full ancestry result debacle, I’ll wrap it up here with this sweet discovery. As I mentioned in the post before last, I have a deep soul connection with New OrleansContinue reading “Just an old soul trying to get home 🔮⚜️💛”
