where creative minds can interact
I tend to write a LOT about my dad. It isn't that I loved my mother less, but more that I loved my dad in a whole and complete way that my mom wouldn't have cared for. She was a bit more aloof and saved her love for special moments. Daddy just loved. Straight up, in your face, like it or not. Love. And he was…Continue
If you look closely
Through every tear
There is a memory
Some good, some bad
But for each tear I cry
A part of me is there for you to see
The same is true for every smile
Every time I…Continue
My eyes open within my heart,
The veils of illusion fall away,
My Vision shoots through
Peering into the Void
I see myself as I have
Never seen myself
There, Up in the

I am not excused from losing my Umph. I am not excused from not finding fuel for my creative drive nor am I excused from times when my creative juices just don't flow. Nope, I am just as human as the next human standing in line for inspiration. Some days I feel like I am waiting for a special, unique, ordinary moment that moves me. I feel like I wait for that… Continue

I had a dream my family was spread across land and sea
They were of every race and creed
Some as black as velvet night
Others as pale as the brightest sunlight
A vast bounty of mountains and terrain between
Still we can feel our hearts sight unseen
Providing care for the young and old
Giving food and shelter…Continue
Knowing how I like my eggs (over easy) I believe that an egg cooked on today's sidewalk, would be grossly overcooked! That being said, it is wayyyy to hot too heat up your kitchen on a day like today! If you have some leftover pasta hanging out in your refrig, this recipe is for you. Most of the ingredients can be found in your produce and deli aisle, making it a perfect summer meal.
Tonight, I'm doing a variation on this, as try to reduce red meat in our diet. …Continue
When you look into my eyes
Do you see the tears I shed for you?
The eyes are the windows to the soul
Or so I'm told
So if you look into mine
What do you see?
I am bad with direct eye contact…Continue

My calendar lets me know
So why are you still thinking about all of those yesterdays?
If I could find the sands of time
And take back what once was…Continue
I didn't attend my parents' wedding, but the stories are too fun not to share!
First - the dress. Every woman has their perfect dress in mind. It's beautiful, fits perfectly, and usually costs a fortune. My mom was a size 0, and assumed it would be easy to find the perfect gown.
... Not so much. The only dress she could find to fit well came from a Sears catalog. Seriously.
My mom loves lace. So she got a wedding dress with lace on…Continue
I reach out my hand to you
You take it and smile that lazy smile
Each time you look at me
I find my breath taken away
It's amazing the power your look & touch have over me
Things started out so strong
With so much promise and hope for a wonderful future
The feelings we have for one another have…Continue
Probably not quite as weird as some (like the one we went to where the bride's large portrait was featured in front of the appetizer table), but there was one...the bride forgot her slip, but the minister wouldn't let her run home to get it. Might not have mattered with a "normal" wedding gown, but this was gauze... He was probably just concerned that the wedding might "run over" - not good since he'd decided to squeeze this young…Continue
Maybe it was only weird because I didn't know anyone except my husband and the groom. Or maybe it was only weird because it was the only Native American ceremony I'd ever been to. Or maybe it was only weird because we'd driven around lost for 45 minutes knowing that the wedding wasn't going to start till we got there and that when we finally did get there we would be the reason for the delay. Or maybe it wasn't weird at…Continue
