Be still my brain

The noise in my brain has arrested my ability to write. I feel like I am bursting at the seams to share the stories in my heart. But the words are blotted out by the white space surrounding them. I want to yell from the mountain tops that my career

Day 22: There is no crying in camping

My husband, Tim, was diagnosed with cancer on July 28, 2018.  Our time together after diagnosis was a beautiful disaster. This is the 22nd day after my husband passed away from the complications of cancer treatment.  Today I went to the camper we shared next to Timmy’s favorite lake in

Lost & Found & Lost

I lost my husband to the complications of cancer this month. I have known this day was coming for 18 months, I just wasn’t quite prepared for it to happen now. I have so many lovely people in my network reaching out to help with food, wine, flowers, virtual hugs,

Are you new here? Let me tell you a bit about me.

After a couple of false starts in my career and love life, I hung out my shingle as a ghostwriter and later married a lovely man who is fun and intelligent and seems delighted by my desire to run the world. We signed on the dotted line in a small

How I Lost 15lbs Overnight!

Ok, obviously that was a cheap trick to get you to open this post. I really did lose 15 lbs.  Actually more like 25, but it was far from overnight. I began my battle with weight loss around 10 years ago when I realized that I had put on 30
