Love Me if You Want To

I feel like a relationship can survive many things, but not emotional disconnect. For what is greater in our relationships but connection. Emotional, heartfelt, soul connection. When that is gone, can it be replaced? Can it be reinvented? Can it be rescued. Is it a subtle passing? Is it a normal feeling that comes and … 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

A Year of Healing and Change

It was a fun and busy summer. I had my kids home with me and that is a truly special memory. I am working in several different ways. As an artist, writer, photographer and painter. As a Realtor with Century 21. I am learning much as I create a career at midlife. It is a year … 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

Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty

True story: I was at Wal-Mart, this morning. The best time to go, really – if you are ever to approach the giant superstore. I have tried being against Wal-Mart and am somewhat divided on the issue. It is near my new apartment and I know they have the unbleached coffee filters I forgot, this … Continue reading

FiNd WhAt YoU lOvE

There is nothing better, not right now, not for me, than positive thinking. I am fascinated with it. Different than arranging my thoughts to recreate a better present. Just focusing differently on what life has to offer. Not rehashing the same old stuff. Bringing to mind the pleasant, the powerful, the lovely. That’s what I am … Continue reading

There is Nothing Heavier than Compassion

Why? Why in the world are people so condemning toward each other? Do animals do this? Surely the animal world is kinder than that. Their aggression toward each other is from a natural state of survival. What is condemnation and where is it coming from? Do all people experience it? I’m in my third floor apartment … Continue reading

Corner of Fair and Hoo Hoo

I found myself at the corner of Fair and Hoo Hoo, last week. I had been to the north side, before, the north side in Lufkin, Texas. It has a reputation that precedes it. I knew when I moved back to Texas, more than two years ago, that houses in this town could still be … Continue reading

My Other Brother

My other brother, the other brother of c.s.ellington. He’s fabulous. I have the best brothers, 5 in all. Today, I am writing about my other brother. The one in the mosaic image pictured here. I will tell you I met him at midlife. I met him on Facebook, after learning of him a dozen years … Continue reading
