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

White Linen Night in the Heights of Houston

Someone told me, yesterday, I am sunny. That is a pleasant thing to say and I think it is important for each of us to be a light to the world, to the best we can be. I encourage it. Each of us has something like that in us but it is up to us … Continue reading

Build Your Life

I would always rather you tell me what you want, rather than what you don’t want. I believe in thinking forward with positive, for what we want and what we see are powerful indicators of where we are going. There is the common story of a man who did not like the idea of growing up … 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

Dare to Love Wastefully

I saw an acquaintance of mine, yesterday. I was at the phone store, was having trouble receiving emails to my phone and that is such a convenience. I was there to have the problem identified and corrected as quickly as possible. I arrived and talked with my acquaintance, the man who helped me when I purchased my phone … Continue reading

It might be allergies, it might be the time of year, it might be that I need a break. Whatever the reason, I’m trying to take a break because I believe the body knows … Continue reading

Create It from the Inside Out

I am painting, again, after taking two months away. The two months went by rather fast and, sometime into it, I began to consider that maybe my painting days were behind me. There are times when we take a break from things in life. It can be good for us and, I believe, most of … Continue reading

Beauty is in Imperfection

What does it mean to be human? Imperfection, entirely perfect. I like not having to live with perfection. I’m not into it, for myself or for those around me. I do not want a perfect home, I do not wish for my kids to be perfect. I wish for imperfect art. In the brushstrokes of my … Continue reading

You are Essential

http:///it/swf/f.swf Time is of the essence. Essence is essential. I want to know, specifically, what essence means. I’m going to look it up – be right back. .. . Well, it means a variety of things. Merriam-Webster first defines it as: the permanent as contrasted with the accidental element of being. In regard to you, … Continue reading

Life is Good

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. ~ Anais Nin I met someone, today, I haven’t met in a long time. And he reminded me that I once used to write my blog nearly every day. I remember that. Time has been unusual for me, this year. I’ve … Continue reading
