Dark To Dark

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It’s also a Monday. And I get to stay home. What a strange feeling. I am celebrating by watching the birds come to get the birdseed I left on the porch for them. So far, there is one Steller Jay. I guess word hasn’t gotten around yet. I’m…

What Next Step??

I wrote a post recently about doing the next right thing. Since that’s my version of a New Year’s Resolution, I’ve been thinking about it quite a lot. I also went to go see Frozen 2 over the weekend with my younger sisters. In case you were wondering, it was fabulous. I loved it. But…

Wait… HOLLYWOOD??

Well, sort of. This has been the craziest month for me, and the last week has reached new heights of surreality. I’m running on low sleep and lower caffeine, so bear with me while I try to make sense of everything that’s happened, okay? Great. Thanks. So . . . a week ago, I drove…
