We all have those stories that we want to forget. All of those stories led us here, to this moment in time. This moment is all that we have any say over. We have no control over the past other than to learn from it, so we make better mistakes the next time. Worrying about what comes next won’t change… Read more »

Writing from Within

I was a writer from the beginning. I was pretending to write a fanciful script well before I could write my name without the odd scribbles. We become writers from the moment we pick up the pen, pencil, crayon, or quill. The need to write, the desire to tell stories are with us always. The shame I have regarding writing… Read more »

A couple of times a year, I have the same nightmare. The details vary, where I am, who is with me and such – but the central theme is always the same. I NEED TO CALL MAMMA. I look for my phone, or I realize I’ve not spoken to her in a while. The worst is when I can’t remember… Read more »

I am currently in Montana. Michael and I made a four day, 1600 mile drive from Rodeo, NM, to get here. I have wanted to visit Montana for a very long time. When I was ten years old, there was a girl in my 3rd-grade class, and she has a poster in her purple Trapper Keeper that had snow-capped mountains… Read more »

Unlocking and Unblocking

Whenever we block memories and events from our childhood, we tend to assume the block will remain. The thing about the brain is that it can do some weird shit. One day you will remember nothing about a year or two in your life, and the next – sadness, anxiety and open the door to invite all of the other… Read more »

* Turtleherding.com * When we left Las Vegas to come to Rusty’s RV Ranch, we live-streamed the trip. It was more fun than we thought it would be. There was a chat going and lots of questions that made the trip go by quicker. We are going to be doing it again. Once again, we are turning the cameras on… Read more »

I am trying to see the good side of the human species right now. It isn’t going very well. I’ve written and re-written the same paragraph over and over, so I will come back to the thoughts later. For now, here is a pretty picture that describes how I am feeling.
