39 posts for January. 15 more than my previous “high” month of September 2008, where I posted 24 posts. I have so many rambling thoughts that I want to explore throughout the day, that when I saw this “Post a Day” challenge, I thought it perfect motivation. It has been.

Now I am curious how these thoughts will change, ebb and flow over this year. I will likely end with more than 365 posts if I continue on this pattern of ensuring there is at least one post a day, because that’s the way I interpret this challenge. I might have to explore less social commentary and more fiction ideas to keep the creative juices, as they say, flowing. Once a week social commentary or the sporadic multi-week I’d generally do is fine, but daily – it gets a little trite. And, really, there isn’t that much going on that I care to comment on it daily.

I enjoy all these motivating tools created to help us write and continue to write. (Here’s the social commentary, I can’t help it!) We like to complain about our text messaging society and what it does to our grammar, so it’s refreshing to see so man advocates of writing.

No Move for Us

Well, we didn’t move. No move for us. We will be staying in the Pacific Northwest for an unknown amount of time. It could be the rest of the school year, and we try again in the spring, or if the kid thrives at school – we could be looking at another 4 years, minimum. Either way, right now, there is no move for us.

Summer Musings

In 2007, we looked at where we were and where we wanted to be, and we decided in 10 years, we’d move. My husband moved...

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
