Filling The Thank Full: Second Sunday 2015

Today, I am grateful for Florida seasons.  The temperature has shifted– today, the high was only 82 F or so, tonight it will get down to 63 F or so, giving us a taste of Fall. The temperatures will go back up, though not quite as high, as the next batch of rain comes rolling […]

Filling the Thank Full: Fourth Sunday June 2015

Today I am thankful that I gave myself a break after hard two year push to finish the MLIS (I graduated May 2nd). I let myself goof off for the better part of two months. I needed time to unwind. Now I pick projects up joyfully. I have writing projects, performance projects, house projects & […]

Filling the Thank Full First Sunday January 2015

Yes, my faithful and faithless followers, it is time to once again fill the thank full. I fill the thank full so I can keep on keeping on. I fill the thank full so that I thrive, not just survive. Tonight, I am thankful for the tired eyed feeling that comes after a day of […]

Christmas Eve- a few images and vignettes

I have a small shiny burn spot on my right index finger. I burnt it taking banana nut muffins out of the oven. The muffins are based on a recipe by a woman named Lynn. She was a regular customer at the Original Book Gallery, the bookstore I worked at in my late teens, very […]

Fill the Thank Full: Fourth Sunday in Advent 2013

It has been a slow moving, grumbly weekend that somehow disappeared all too quickly. Of late, I have been writing the Good (and Not So Good) Words late- between 10:30 and 11:30 p.m. sometimes in the last fifteen minutes of a day. Tonight, I will take time to give thanks early because I am in […]

Meanderer’s Meditations: Strong legs and cold hurt knees

I will be keeping this Dose of the Good (and Not So Good) Words short, because I have a slight headache, and it is cold as hell in my no central heat house, and I want to lie down in bed with the spouse and the cats and warm up. The candles are lit, and […]

Filling the Thank Full, Third Sunday of Advent 2013

Tonight, right in this moment, here are a few things for which I give thanks: The way a splash of rum makes store bought eggnog semi-tasty, not nearly as good as my homemade eggnog, but it takes a lot less work to pour a dash of rum into the cup. The light from three candles […]

Filling the Thank Full Second Sunday of Advent 2013

Yawns relaxing me from head to toe. Yesterday’s shopping trips, which included a purchase at Paynes Prairie. Yellow gold glow of two candles. Puttering with poetry put me in this perversely playful mood. Pizza served to 100 people, all hungry, many without homes. Peace at the end of a very full weekend. Megacomics and mattresses. […]

Filling the Thank Full on the First Sunday of Advent 2013

Well, it has been a long, long, long time since my last post. I have a draft or two that I never finished. Life has been full. Full time job, full time load of online grad school and then the need to do nothing for nobody now and again all has meant that I do […]
