Marcel Proust:  The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. How easy it is in modern life to escape to a new place or a new person. If our desires balance between stability and adventure as Esther Perel teaches, then how do we navigate these needs? Renew on … Continue reading

WHAT IF

And then, one day, I felt better. A lot better. There is a girl in me five years younger that came back yesterday, I had stopped looking for her for I thought she had long since disappeared. It has been surprising and heartwarming and she is still here today. I am here to tell you … Continue reading

Press one for happy birthday

It is not for lack of content I have taken some time from writing this blog. If anything, there is an exceeding amount of content; so much so, it is challenging to know where to begin. I have had the good fortune of two visits to Manhattan in the past six months. There are so … Continue reading

No time like the present

No time like the present to resume blogging. As I sit here, early, Houston being here. From the hotel window, I could see soccer players late last night under the lights at Memorial Park. I don’t believe in outdoor lighting aside from sporting events – and not for events like in giant dome buildings but … Continue reading

I wish for you much happiness in 2014

Me: I feel like I’m aging. Someone else: Camille, we’re all getting older every day. Different conversation .. Someone else: You live in fantasy, you don’t always live in reality. Me (thinking to myself): That makes sense .. I prefer it that way. Oh, I have missed writing my blog. I have missed my readers … Continue reading

I will catch my breath and you will catch yours, too

Except for paying my monthly bills, money means nothing to me. If I did not have kids, I would live in my car and catch my breath for a while. I am not making light of this. I know living in a car is a big deal and some people don’t have a choice but … Continue reading

Right where I am Intended to be. And so are You.

I’m sitting at my computer, again, and I feel like a writer again. I cancelled internet at home several months ago. I called back two weeks later because I had changed my mind, wanted to resubscribe and I was told the charge would be nearly double. They said I had been grandfathered in, before. I … Continue reading

You are Extraordinary and of Great Value

I’m thinking about writing a novel, I have some things to say, some experiences to share. I’ve started one, actually, we’ll see if this gets put together. I want to write more consistently with my blog, again. I miss that. I miss interacting with my readers. Life got too busy, for a while, and I started … Continue reading

Nurture your Inner Light

Where am I spending my time, that’s what I’m asking myself. In the last few months, I have been too busy. From one thing to the next I have been going and I want to change that. I have found that in a busy life, there is not room even for myself in my own life. I … Continue reading

“Underwater Dive”

I haven’t been writing my blog, lately. Occasionally, I visit in my mind. I’ve been writing my column, though, and keeping up well with that, every other week. Every other week, I interview an artist in my local community and write about my perspective regarding that experience. I have attended a Reading Railroad, visited with … Continue reading
