Rockport 2018 and the events preceding

The beginning of a day, the end of a day:  both beautiful. Time out, time to look back …. now that the events have passed ….. because it was such a super special weekend, the entirety in a state of grace.

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

Part of me has gone there to stay

I met Optimus Prime, yesterday, thanks to my eight year old son who invited me to the most recent Transformers movie. I admit, the ONLY reason I agreed to go to the movie yesterday was to spend two hours sitting beside my son and to do something he wanted to do that appeared to make … Continue reading

Love is a renegade word

One month since my last post. In that time, I have continued to attend art festivals such as Galveston Food & Wine Festival. The travel schedule can be a little intense and I am resting today.

There is the common story of a man who did not like the idea of growing up … Continue reading

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

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

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
