In August 1994, in my previous life, my sister MessCat joined our family on vacation. We stayed in the little park home at the "campground" in Florida. It was called a campground, but everyone stayed in some kind of mobile/modular home on a little plot of grass across from the canal. Many had boats docked… Continue reading Whoa man!

When Time Stood Still
I am one of those people who believes that light will follow darkness. That eventually the sun will rise. That the heavy nothingness will give way to little pinpricks of light that will open up the sky like a box being opened at Christmas, until the whole sky is gloriously lit by the golden sun… Continue reading When Time Stood Still
Don’t Miss the Dance or Flip to the End
Yesterday, in the midst of the madness around here, I looked over at the couch and saw Cooter, head on the seat, feet up the back of it, reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. He has seen the first Harry Potter movie. His older sister has read all of the books. His middle sister… Continue reading Don’t Miss the Dance or Flip to the End
Letting It Go
My Fella and I took the crew along with Mess Cat and her little guy Shaker to see the new Disney movie "Frozen." I had no idea what to expect. The only previews I'd seen featured Olaf the snowman, so I had no clue about the depth and meaning behind the storyline. I do love… Continue reading Letting It Go
no hearts in my text messages
I've always been an Anglophile, as far back as I can remember. It all culminated with a trip to England over spring break my junior year in college. Most people came back to school with tans. I came back with a new affinity for hot tea with milk and a tiny bit of an accent. I… Continue reading no hearts in my text messages
Ending a Chapter in My Story
I just closed the door on a chapter of my life. A very long chapter. The why's and wherefore's really aren't important, but here's what is. I'm a scriptwriter from way back. I like to "write out" how something will go down, who will say what, where they will go, and how all of this… Continue reading Ending a Chapter in My Story
For the Birds
I originally wrote this four years ago about a walk I took in August 2009. I wrote it in December of 2009 to be included in a Hope Book of encouragement in which family and friends shared stories and pictures and laughter with Mama and Daddy, as Daddy began his fight against Lymphoma. Lately I've really… Continue reading For the Birds
On the Road Past Devastation
Yesterday I drove on roads that serve as the backdrop for both my childhood and my previous life. As I drove by the long road that leads to my Granny's house I heard the echoes of voices from the past--my cousins, my grandparents, my aunts and uncles, my folks. As the car whizzed by, I… Continue reading On the Road Past Devastation
Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover, or T-Shirt Slogan, or Pajama Bottoms…..
So I sat in a courtroom today and was overwhelmed by the broken stories that surrounded me. Broken relationships, broken finances, broken homes. At one point I just hung my head from the weight of it all. I sat, listening and remembering all the times I sat in that same courtroom waiting to see if I'd… Continue reading Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover, or T-Shirt Slogan, or Pajama Bottoms…..
