Would It Help to Put On Your Rose-Colored Glasses?


I’m writing this today on the beginning of Summer Solstice with sunshine on the horizon and what will be the longest day of the year.  I don’t know about you, but it’s inspired me to put on my rose-colored glasses and see things from a different point of view.

Sometimes we all need to take a break from the world’s troubles and our own troubles to see things from a more cheerful and positive viewpoint...as they say, through rose-colored glasses. Or, “happy glasses” as my mom would say.

Being a Badass: Is It Really All Bad?


I recently was reminded when things get tough the tough get going and to add to that, I found writing inspiration from Thelma and Louise.  They are the characters from the 1991 movie of the same namesake. Actresses Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis played two women leaving their “somewhat” normal lives behind to hit the road for adventure. 

Things go all Badass when their journey turns into trouble, which is punctuated by their unexpected criminal activity. Things literally go south as they find themselves running for the Mexican border while outrunning the police. 

When this movie first came out every married, single, hard-working, fed-up, and victimized woman cheered for its badass attitude. But, it was the ending that made EVERYONE say, “That’s BADASS!”

So, what does it mean to be a badass?

How An Obsession Began With Butterfly Pancakes


If you see me in the far-off corner of a bookstore clamoring to a newly bound cookbook lusting and drooling over the pages of glossy food photos...please, just pass by discretely without judgement.

I’ll admit it...I’m a cookbook junkie!

Which is why when I saw the daily Google Doodle, I was intrigued.

Understanding Self-Awareness: Maybe Bundt Pans Aren’t Your Thing?

Self-awareness could be the mind-blowing freedom you’re looking for. It’s that A-HA! moment when you understand why you do the things you do.  



Or, you might say “oh for the love of Pete, why did I waste the last 20 years of my life collecting Bundt pans!” 

And, come to find out, you don’t even like Bundt cake!

Of course, this is just a silly way to say that sometimes it takes years to become more self-aware of what makes you tick.  That doesn’t mean those years are wasted figuring it out.

Unusual Ink: A Short Fiction on Two Drops of Ink

In my attempt to broaden my writing, I've been striving to write more fiction stories. Recently, I contributed a short fiction story to Two Drops of Ink where they have published the story on their literary blog.


Two Drops of Ink - A Literary Blog: Short Fiction Story - Unusual Ink

I feel writing in a short format is a great place for me to start my fiction writing. A little less overwhelming and taking on the challenge in smaller doses. I’m slowly trying to develop and improve in the art of writing. Practice, practice, practice is the best way to do this. Also, continuous learning and reading about the craft is another way.
