Building a Bridge as you Walk on It is not a book I would have chosen to read on my own because, in all honesty, I have a tendency to avoid books that feel self-righteous when you read the cover; however, if I hadn’t read this book at this particular moment, I don’t know if […]

It was recently inferred by someone that because I gave a man a compliment on his clothes, he and I were having an affair. What didn’t matter in this situation was my intent. I would never have an affair with anyone except Tim (who I’ve been with forever and is my other half), and why should they care anyway? Don’t they have their own lives to focus on? So, now I wonder: “did they say this because they were bored? Because they’re not happy?”

Proving your lineage is not necessarily easy, but it is very rewarding. For me, going through the process of researching my roots – where my family came from – was a journey. And I’d like to think that it was the best kind of journey: the kind that doesn’t end when you choose to stop. […]

I was watching The Avengers: Infinity War (for like the umpteenth time) and that scene where Tony’s all, “The Avengers broke up…” and Bruce is all, “Broke up? Like a band?” – that quote reminded me of my band. Except my band didn’t break up, I just left. I didn’t want to, but that’s life.

Out of most of the PS4 games that I’ve played recently, Horizon Zero Dawn has managed to tie with my favorite game: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I honestly didn’t think that was possible. I then had to ask myself why I loved this game so much and the answer is, there are too many answers. All you need […]

I always loved Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, but I didn’t realize how much I was missing until I read the book by Lewis Carroll. While the film is fun, and the music is entertaining, there are some really interesting features from the book that you don’t see on film. Mainly, that there are real life […]

I was first introduced to Wolf’s Rain in 2008 and became enraptured by it. I loved the characters and their dynamic and the story was so touching and so heart-wrenching at times that I was brought to tears – sometimes slow and sweet sometimes hard and desperate. Always, I loved them. I’ve done a painting […]

When I started taking action against my Cushing’s Disease, I stopped doing the artistic hobbies I once enjoyed. And to be completely honest, I may have stopped long before that. I stopped drawing. I stopped painting. I stopped making jewelry. I stopped everything. I even stopped singing. I didn’t sing again until after the surgery, […]
