Surviving Face Off, Black Tie Frenzy and Plain Life


Wise words of the day: Image lifted from: http://girlyme.tumblr.com/post/92870248438/filson-wise-words via Pinterest. In case the deafening silence did not clue you in, the months leading up to surgery were quite a struggle for me, and I wrestled with depression, the reality of being alone and often invisible, the roles I fill in the family circle and a…

Is there life offline?


So what, you may ask, can one DO when there is no internet to absorb, delight, educate, aggravate and titillate? If you are a geeky person like me, you read. Yes, those book things that we house in places called libraries and line up in bookstores filled with the intoxicating aroma of, well, probably glue,…

Thankful Thoughts


 Photo Credit: BoredPanda.org    “The Book of Life” – Artist David Kracov If I had a lot of money, I would so purchase this piece of sculpture. It is metal, and each butterfly is hand-painted. The book contains diary pages, poetry and notes written by the children of Auschwitz. I find it haunting and incredibly…

7.25.14 Friday Frivolous Foolishness


Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s Friday 🙂  You get only a small ‘wooT’ out of me because I am plum tuckered out.  International clients were in house for the last four days, so the office was all atwitter and off schedule due to excess meeting-itis, kow-tow-itis and general executive angst. It all ended well, so, you know “All’s well…

7.18.14 Friday Frivolous Foolishness


Did you hear that sound just now?  Kind of like a deflating balloon, that weird ‘Eeeeeeiiiiiiiiii’ with a whoosh accompanying it?  I think that was my energy.  Yes, it is FRIDAY, and not one minute too soon I might add. I may have to change the title to Friday Frazzles & Frustrations if something in…

7.4.14 Friday Frivolous Foolishness


Ahhhhhhhhh.  A non-work day.  A later-than-normal-alarm-set day.  It is greatly needed, as the work week was incredibly demanding, covering a co-worker for PTO, in addition to my normal duties.  Plus, the Boss was also off.  Fun times! As such, there was not much frivolity this week.  More like frustrations, vexation and the like.  But, there…

Sunday Snippets 6.28.14


I’m here cooling off after running around snapping shots in the humid heat for this week’s photo challenge over at my most recent newborn activity, my photo-focus blog: My Digital Eye Queue  I’ll still include shots that add value here in my writing, but some folks don’t want to slog through my verbosity, they just want…

First Friday Frivolous Foolishness


I have a wickedly honed but weird sense of humor.  When I worked in a ‘pod’ of co-workers, we used to have team conference calls which often were, well, a drag.  My self-assigned task would often be to pull innuendo or irony out of the conversation while on mute, and make up word play, which…
