Hot cat sprawled out trying to cool off

May 23, 2018

Shhhhhhhh … be verwee quiet. The human is off busy working on some big presentation. Not sure what that word means but she keeps repeating it. How would I know the difference? Looks the same to me. Silver box hasn’t left her lap. Can’t wrestle the thing off her lap. Tried chewing some sticky out…

Big Hairy Deals

May 17, 2018

Last week the control-o-meter was ramping up. More so in thoughts and whining talk than actual action. But enough when added together to start questioning because this didn’t feel like me. Something was going on. Time for a deeper look. Didn’t take too long to see wanting control provided a sense of comfort and sanity as…

When Push Turns To Prod

May 11, 2018

Pssst … I’ll let you in on a secret. Earlier this week I was freaking out. By that I mean – TOTALLY. FREAKING. OUT.   In two weeks I’m giving an SEO presentation for an audience of techie WordPress aficionados. What the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks did I get myself into? More to the point – HOW did I…

Answers In Hearing Range

May 4, 2018

You know, it’s funny how we don’t listen to ourselves. Take last week for example. An acreage for sale appeared out of nowhere that ticked EVERY box except distance to town. The big question was whether or not with everything else being spot on, would the other checkboxes overcome a 30-minute drive to town. And…

When Time Runs Out

April 27, 2018

** Weird Warning ** Letting you know upfront I have no idea where this post is going. It’s been an odd week, but there’s something here. Thoughts of writing about anything else are stopped cold. As are considerations of not writing at all. Even though time is running out to actually write a weekly Letter this…

When You’re More You

April 19, 2018

A question caught me off-guard a couple weeks back. How do you know when you’re living from Self, that you’re on the right path? Shortly afterwards arrived a request to expand on what being a little more me looks like. Then living from Self came up again.   The answer is akin to describing what blue…

What Money Can’t Buy

April 11, 2018

Monday night I made my 19th blood donation. Sadly, with only being able to donate 4 times a year, there won’t be any lifetime donation records broken around here. That’s okay. The point is contributing, not competing. Gratefully, my personal targets are still very much within reach – 20 this year and 25 by the…

Passion In The Trenches

April 5, 2018

A simple musing today – What if your passion is the thing that takes the most effort to make sure it happens? Where are you in for the long haul?   Over the past few weeks a few things have come to mind: ~ the couple marking their one year anniversary helping abandoned and stray…

Ties That Unbind

March 29, 2018

This has been a weird week of contrast. Ebb and flow. Busyness and quiet. Avoidance and diving in. Spinning about and finding traction. Attachment and letting go.   Or rather let go. That’s what most caught my attention.   Had a phone call yesterday from a friend. She’s worked tirelessly for what seems forever trying…
