I’m anxiously awaiting the orientation for my Masters program to begin. I showed up about half-an-hour early, completely misjudging the traffic (that’s a lie, the GPS let me know far in advance that I’d be so early). 114 more words


growing wings

Several years ago I ran across this little one out of it’s nest. I didn’t know what to do for it. I tried to usher it toward a tree so it would not go from sidewalk to parking lot. 280 more words

While I’ve been allowing myself to wallow in my “wrench,”–my recurring winter blues, and the loss of a silly little grant–I don’t have to. I can make a conscious effort to fight it. I can wake up. I can take a walk when the sun shines, enjoy my children, and will myself to write; to finish the book that has haunted me..."
