June Swoon

I only had one post in May, a book review. I wanted to write in the last week of May about the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, about Palestine, about the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, about the discovery of 215 Indigenous children’s bodies found in a mass grave under a residential school…

December

Well, of course I didn’t complete NaBloPoMo (crying emoji face!) But let’s recap October and November while we’re here now. Octoberwell, of course there was work, which is going wellI watched episodes of a friend’s newest project that happened on Tuesdays in October. It’s a series called the Hope Desk and it’s a free hour’s…

birthday eve

I realized yesterday (again) that I like the mornings. I tend to wake up early, even without an alarm. I am unhurried but purposeful. I take Lulu outside, I do my morning ablutions, I make breakfast and read or look at my phone. Then I head to work with my long commute down the hallway…

I got behind

On Sunday, I had an excuse. The power went out at 6 pm. It was very windy that day, and we think a transformer was hit by a tree or something. I went to bed at 8 pm. It was pretty great actually. I did wake up at 10 pm (power was on) and got…

November is here

I would normally take some time to recap October, but I remembered too late that I meant to write earlier (if that makes sense). So I’ll just take a moment to say that the presidential election (as well as the election of many other positions) is this Tuesday. I’ve already voted. The state officials had…

September wrap-up

Since I’ve been almost writing every week, it leaves the monthly wrap-up as kind of rehashing of things I’ve already talked about. But, just for fun, here’s the month in review up til Thursday of last week: I watched Barbara a couple times. I did a poetry feature for Viral Poetry Series and participated in…

No justice.

The grand jury in the Breonna Taylor investigation came to a decision today. It was, not surprisingly, not satisfying in the realm of giving her some justice. Now all hell is breaking loose in Louisville. Again, not surprised. As I was writing, a quote came up on Facebook that I want to also put here:…

Almost six months

***Long post*** In a “normal” time, this Friday, September 18, I would be getting on a plane with my sister for our first trip to France (Paris first then the Riviera). The Paris days were our own, but the Riviera days were to be spent with a group to delve into creativity. This trip was…

August re-cap

Welcome to September. In August, I participated in an Instagram challenge called #augustbreak2020 that is created by Susannah Conway. She gives prompts for every day of the month and you post a photo inspired by that prompt. Some are easy, others are a little tough. The last day’s prompt was: August was…. My answer was…
