Everyone knows that person who claims to have it all, but who can’t admit that they’re dead inside.
Since March 2020, I’ve been pretty laid back about the global pandemic. “Keep calm and carry on,” that’s my motto. Now it’s a year later, people are vaccinated, but I feel more unsure now than I did a year ago. It’s because I don’t know – yet – how much the world has changed. I…… Continue reading Post-Covid Anxiety: Where Do We Go From Here?
It’s been a few days and I don’t know if I want to or even want to try being able to keep up a diary log like that… It was fun, though, and I liked the writing every day. But one of my favorite proverbs, a Samosa proverb, says, “When the music changes, so too…… Continue reading Don’t Pull On Your Sprouts, Let Them Grow
I hear the morning birds singing through the open windows, and it’s a celebration because this is the first night since winter that I slept with the windows open. It was a fantastic, fresh and crisp sleep I had last night, too. I just re-heated the coffee I bought yesterday at cafe. I microwaved it…… Continue reading Mornings Before Daylight Savings

It’s 7:11 AM and I am dressed and I’ve taken my meds and the bed is made (more or less) but there is no coffee. I reached my grubby little hand into the coffee bin this morning to find it empty – not a single packet left. So here I am, waking up slowly the…… Continue reading Out of Coffee, In a Mood
My left nostril is unclogged and smells the two candles from Soapology that are unlit but smelly-good enough to perfume the air. I see the morning sunlight brightly shining on the cathedral next door; the stone saints look like they’re squinting. I’m so glad I got another pair of these futuristic leggings, this time in…… Continue reading Yuzu and Air

Is it is because I’m lazy? Is it because there’s no time? Is it because I don’t have…… Continue reading Why It’s So Hard to Start Something
DC is kicking a six-sided die deep into the recesses of my closet. I’m out of milk at the moment and I didn’t add sugar, so my coffee’s black. And so is the sky outside – it’s not even 5:30 AM yet. I see no cars on the streets, but the world of twinkling lights…… Continue reading Dark Mornings and Renee’s Bridget Jones
