The White Party

by

-

Last week I resolved to get myself out of the house and into something that involved being in a room, face to face, with real live human beings.  I used to have a very different life.  A life that revolved around food, friends and blogging and then last summer life took a hard turn and I...

A Little Housekeeping Help

by

-

When we start a new year, one thing on my to-do list rises to the top like the cream in my coffee, cleaning out the house. I will argue that nothing feels better than walking into a room where everything is in it’s place, every surface freshly wiped down. I’m talking about the kind of clean you feel...

The Tree of Life

The other day my aunt and I were exchanging movie lists. I told her that if there was one movie above all to rent it was The Tree of Life. I had watched it earlier this year for the first time and found myself at a complete loss of words...

goodbye 2012

Goodbye pain.

Goodbye complacency.

Goodbye sedentary life.

Goodbye confusion.

Goodbye heartache.

Goodbye regret.

Goodbye status quo.

Goodbye anger.

Goodbye chaos.

Goodbye normal.

Goodbye yesterday.

I have endured a long 366 days.  It felt like a lifetime. A long year marred by fear and mortality. Grief binding like a straight jacket, never escaping.  Will it get better?

Yes it will.

First and Tenth

by

-

My kids started school Wednesday and then clouds parted and angels began to sing  … hallelujah or was it Andy Williams’ The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, they may have BOTH been playing. I can’t quite remember. I didn’t think this day would come. The day when both kids were in school. All. Day. Long....

Roid Week 2012 Recap

by

-

Roid Week finished up a couple weeks ago (it ran from August 13-17) after a full week of shooting, scanning, uploading and then finally drooling over each others “successes.” If you are a Polaroid shooter yourself then you know how illusive a good shot can be especially using some of the newer film coming out of...
