all about the process: exploring life + learning + creative curiosity

About a month ago I wrote about Amazon’s Dash Buttons, something I discovered on accident while looking for something else… shocker.  😉 I wrote about them here and said I’d report back with my thoughts, after ordering one to try….. In my original post, I wondered, “Is this necessary? Will I give in to yet …

Hope yours is a “Hell, yeah!” kind of Monday. 😉

  The other day, while reading fellow blogger and author Carrie Rubin’s post about authors, gender, standards, and profanity/violence, I replied with my perspective as a teacher who worked with middle and high school students for many years. As a reading specialist and as a writer myself, I required lots of writing from my students and taught them that reading and writing …

Semantics? Maybe. Blame it on middle age. Blame it on laziness. Whatever. I’m kind of a realist, I think. Or lazy. Either way….. I stumbled on to a post that …

Eventually, all of us ladies get there.  Some freak out, some take it in stride….  Me??  After ten years in the ‘holding pattern,’ I say, Let’s do this!  I’m thinking a little humor will go a loooong way. 😉     Wishful thinking….   And on those extra-special days…..     Have a super Sunday! 🙂

Words have always been an important part of my life – from learning them with my mom and grandmom as wee one at bedtime, to playing with them in creative writing nearly every day, to teaching the power (and fun!) of them for 20+ years – so imagine my dismay when words became unreachable to me. From forgetting them to just not hearing any …
