TV shows I’m enjoying

I mostly completed November’s NaBloPoMo, but I did miss a couple days, so I’ll catch up into December. Aren’t y’all lucky? I recently started watching a couple different TV shows that I am really enjoying. Since they might not be on people’s radar, I wanted to fill you in. We Are Lady Parts This show…

College applications

I have no real recollection of my college applications. I’m pretty sure I had to write an essay, and I might even have it somewhere in a file folder. But what these applicants need to do now is remarkable. There are activity lists and short answer essays and student statements and academic statements. And so…

And just like that

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I’m happy about that because it means that I have the next two days off. It’s not a big holiday for me or my family and hasn’t really been in the last few years. Sometimes we do traditional food, other years not so much. I hope whatever way you choose to enjoy…

Pare down

I have a daily organizer on which I list things I want to get done each day. In the early days of the pandemic, it was pretty bare, but as time has gone on, there are things I want to do, like keep in touch with friends or submit to poetry journals, that I like…

Have a poet read your stars

As a gift to myself for my birthday, I booked a session with a poet friend of mine from back in the day who now has a PhD in Depth Psychology with a specialization in Somatic Studies. One of the services she offers is an astrological reading to support personal healing. Shortly before our session,…

Crying

I know I missed yesterday. I just plum forgot! I think I’m up to two posts that I owe. As my birthday approaches, so does all my angst. I’m not sure if that’s the right word for it. Melancholy maybe is better. Low. All day, I’ve felt on the verge of tears, and several times…

A Satisfied Mind

My birthday is coming up (Friday). My friend, Robt, posted a link to a song by Jeff Buckley on Facebook and mentioned me because Buckley has been a muse to me on a few occasions. His album, Grace, is sublime and was the inspiration for the name of the house concert I founded which also…

Songwriter book club

The main thing I had going on today was attending my songwriter book club. I don’t write songs, though, I write poems. We read a book then write something either about or inspired by the book. The book we read was called The Control of Nature. It was written in the late 80s, but I’m…

Saturday night

All in all, it was a good day. After writing the blog this morning, I worked on the poem. I watched the last episode of “Jane the Virgin,” and I was satisfied with the ending. I went into the office, and I did some freelance work. Then I looked at my poem spreadsheet and my…

Saturday morning

Yesterday, I had every intention to get shit done. But somewhere along the way, my motivation dried up and I watched Netflix (almost done with the series “Jane the Virgin” and kept up with “The Great British Baking Show”) and was in bed (and going to sleep, not playing my game or checking social media)…
