Today my writing and concentration are beyond erratic. I keep jumping around, can’t seem to grasp one idea to run with, can’t seem to develop what I’ve already started, can’t seem to focus…so I decided to jot down the things that entered my head and begin a bunch of draft folders. I’ll pick them up another time when my mind is calmer and I’m in a better headspace.Continue reading “Inattentive”
You want to know what happens to me when I eat carbs, like cake?
Anyway the cake yesterday was sooooooo good. Yum. I may get another one for Easter. 😳Continue reading “About cake and sunrise (a nothing post with pictures)”
Cold and rain, that’s how the week is starting here in Toronto.
I know the snow is not far off. As *some people* in certain States keep mentioning… 🙃
What this means for me is this: Continue reading “Another step in forward propulsion”
Imagine a life, still and inert.
Does it exist? Continue reading “A tranquil life desired”
I read a book by Rainer Maria Rilke some time ago called Letters to a Young Poet.
There is a passage that I came across today that I feel the need to share here with you:
“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.” (Rainer Maria Rilke)
There is much to take from this that is healing and helpful when you are feeling down or anxious, confused or depressed. Continue reading “Some thoughts about Rilke, writers’ block and creativity”
As some of you know, I am still She-Shed-less and in dire need of privacy, peace, solitude and a distraction-free space to call my own. As some of you also know, I escaped to mom’s. She has that, and more. ❤ Which is why I can now write a blog post about actual, physical proof that I did something writing related that is not a blog post. Hah.
Yesterday, I submitted a story I wrote years ago to a celebrated online magazine. Continue reading “Writing progress”
I bought a new pair of pants today. Continue reading “A blog post about numbers: 2 and 8”
Would it surprise you to read I have never listened to a Beyoncé song? I mean, on purpose. Her music is played here and there and everywhere, so she’s kind of hard to miss. 😉
Typically I’m a classic rock kinda gal, with some 80s and 90s soft rock or even a bit of pop thrown in.
I mention Beyoncé because a friend of mine brought her up the other day. Actually, she referred to her as Sasha Fierce. I had to google this name. I didn’t know what she was talking about.
Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures. My phone obviously needs its eye cleaned…
I don’t have much fresh stuff in the house anymore (it’s been 7 days we’ve been staying home) and I feel too uninspired to venture out so I created a new salad with what I still have on hand.
Clearly, I’m not social distancing from my fridge as per my previous post… (ha).
I haven’t packed a school lunch in…days!
I have however made supper every day. Boo.
Wanna know what I cooked yesterday? Continue reading “School lunch hiatus”
