A Memory Flash

Some objects have the power to link us to our past. Whether it is the blanket you slept with as an infant, the boots that led you to new heights, or that stuffed animal that helped you fight the monsters under your bed. For me… That was Fetch. Fetch was a soft and well-cuddled TY […]

All of Three Seconds

It only takes three seconds for someone to judge you. When you walk into a first date, interview, or meeting, by the time you’ve said your first and last name, a person has already made up their mind about you. If you are like me, then changing your mind once it has been made is […]

The Grimm Reality

I think it’s safe to say that Disney has raised us to believe that we are all princesses and Prince Charming is only a frog away. Sometimes I jam my foot into a too small stiletto to make the Louboutin glass slipper fit. Hoping for a fairy godmother to come and sweep me away from my problems […]

Turning Rain into Rainbows

Little things throughout the day make me happy. When I see a puppy (or rather a dog-puppy), I am happy. When I see something in a store window that I have been coveting, and it isn’t expensive, I am happy. Each day counting the little things that make me happy, makes my day all that […]

Moving Spaces

Moving spaces is like opening a blank journal with pages yet to be written. The blank canvas waiting for a masterpiece. The design waiting to be created. Life is a series of blank pages waiting for the right words. Like sheet music waiting for the lyrics with the melody already in mind. Moving spaces is […]

New Love in Old Treasures

Shining objects singing plywood tables. Glistening rings, dusty plates, and old wooden frames crowd the tiny space. Antiques, sentimental items, and exhausted toys sat, staring back at the wandering buyers. Once a family heirloom, a link to the past or a symbol of a previous joy, casually glanced at, picked up, or purchased. Setting out […]

A Passing Wave

Windows down. Music blasting. Hair tousled by the circulation of fresh air. Cruising along the dirt, back country roads. Stopping and swerving for animals. Familiar with every winding curve. Every passing vehicle. Every stalk of corn. Passing a fellow dirt road navigator, there is a sign that portrays a sense of knowing: the passing wave. […]

Life is but a Wait

Sitting, standing, thumbs twiddling. Waiting. Checking clocks. Waking phones. Hoping my name is called, I reach the end of the line, or I finally receive what I have been anxiously awaiting. Life is made up of a serious of place holders, what you do with those place holders is up to you. Waiting for your dream. […]

My Morning Commute

The subtle vibrations and high frequency tone alerting you to an approaching train. The squealing breaks resonating the signal of an imminent stop. Doors abruptly open, allowing busy workers just enough time to leap to their exit. Filing in, one-by-one as a crackled, nearly inaudible voice cuts through the crowd. “Doors closing”. This is the […]

Never a Dull Sparkle

I think it is safe to say that I have never lived a dull moment in my life. Boring people are the only ones who are ever bored. Life is exciting and invigorating. There are countless things to do, even on the rainiest of days. There is no grey cloud in the sky that will […]
