Big Year

Last night was the Winter Solstice. The shortest day of the year or the longest night of the year depending on your perspective. It’s an interesting thing from an astrological point of view as well as a philosophical one. It can get a person to thinking… One year. A lot can happen in one year.... Continue Reading →

Advanced Chemistry

I published my first book. It is a "cozy mystery" that is very loosely based on my life.  Don't worry, old friends.  I made up most of the juicy stuff. Most of it. Not all of it! Someone had to die and I didn't have the heart to kill any of my real friends so... Continue Reading →

Split Personality

I almost changed the name of my blog today. I read recently that if you are going to be a writer- you have to take yourself seriously and treat yourself like a writer. Huh? The idea being, that if you are going to take the time to write a story, you should have the balls... Continue Reading →

Crossing Muddy Waters

Have you ever wondered what makes a relationship last?  Not just romantic relationships, but friendships as well? Last night I had a great talk with one of my dearest friends. We did not grow up together. I met TR (The Rock) when I moved to Oregon to go to optometry school. I had met one... Continue Reading →

The Outgoing Introvert

I don’t know about you, but I am glad that crazy “Blood Moon” business is over. Whew…. Last week was a rough one. The crazy chain got broken over the weekend and sure enough, a new story is born. After running around like a chicken with my head cut off, I got a chance to... Continue Reading →
