For the most part, I’ve adjusted okay to pandemic life. Today I was thinking that there are a few things that I really miss. Things like this … Buying fresh flowers and fruits at the Farmer’s Market. A Sunday regular for me. Library and book store visits. Sure I’ve been reading books on my iPad and I’ve ordered a few books from my favorite bookstore but I miss browsing the aisles, the air condition and […]
Do you have those type of days were you just want to hide from the world. Sit in a room, eat junk food and just rest. I haven’t had one of these days in a really long time but today is just one of those days I don’t want to be an adult. Tomorrow is a new day and I’m looking forward to a fresh start.
It’s been hard for me to keep this space up the last few months. Summer was hard. Not sure why but I was just not motivated to do much. However, I did… Explore a little teeny-tiny bit. Drink margaritas. One of my favorite summer drinks. Go camping at the beach. Now I’m ready to drink lots of coffee and enjoy all that the new season has to bring.
I marched with thousands of other people in Downtown Los Angeles. I had a lot of feelings. I was emotional. I was overwhelmed, happy, sad, empowered, claustrophobic, anxious, mad, encouraged, in-sync, ready and so many more. I don’t think I’ve seen this many people, in my life, in one concentrated area.

Wow, what a week we’ve had here in the U.S. Emotions are running high, people (including myself) are sad about the election that happened last week, others are happy and are hoping for “change” (I find that hard to digest). Here’s something I wrote last Wednesday that still sum up my feelings. What a difference 24 hours makes.Yesterday at this time, I was getting ready to get in line at my voting poll place. A […]
Summer is in full bloom. I’m going to admit, summer is not my favorite season. Here in Southern California, the heat is intolderable. Anything about 80 degrees makes me want to lie on my bed under a full blast air conditioner. It drains a lot of my energy. Oh well, what am I go to do? I’m going to make lemonade out of lemons. One of my favorite parts of summer is the light. It can […]
It’s Saturday. This week has been a hard one. There is a lot of violence and tension in our space. The struggles shouldn’t be ignored or brushed under the rug, they are REAL. All this makes me a bit sad and make me wonder what the future holds. Today I vow to surround myself in the everyday beauty that surround my space and to pay extra special attention to those who I love. I hope […]
