I noticed, while reading a friends blog, that she participates and has participated in a thing called reverb.  As a blogger I’ve heard of this before, but never really investigated.  So this year, after seeing that she was participating in reverb again this year I headed over to the site, Project Reverb, she linked

I’ve written and ranted over and over on this blog about being kinder to each other, about trying to be more compassionate, about listening instead of finger pointing, about being open instead of so closed we stop speaking the same language, about love and understanding. Today I came across this bit from Ted Talks (wh

I play fantasy football, and fantasy basketball, and fantasy baseball.  I’ve played fantasy football for some time now.  First with a group from work (we still play, which is awesome), then with the POD (we still play, which is awesome), and now with the CREW (which is also equally awesome).  Fantasy basketball sta

Halloween, it’s nearly here.  For me Halloween, though enjoyable (mostly for the candy and occasional small party), hasn’t been my number one holiday.  I know people who live for this little snippet of time in the year and I love how they love it.  I envy their enthusiasm for it.  I wish I could share it.

Here it is folks, what you’ve been waiting for…. There’s now a personality test that will tell you if you live where you should.  Apparently I should be residing in D.C.  Open, yet not agreeable.  That made me laugh.  You? http://science.time.com/2013/10/22/the-united-states-of-attitude-an-interactive-

Just received a text message from the weather channel… Freeze Warning. I guess fall is coming in like a lion. Does that even apply? I have no idea. The leaves are coming down now. We had our first city leaf pick up this week. There will be four spread over three months. First round… 18 […]

No matter where I move, how far away I get, there will never be any place more beautiful.  There will never be anyplace like home….

Ever find yourself sitting in the garage after you’ve pulled in, unwilling to get out of the car because the song that’s playing is making you feel something? That was me just now, and damn, it is great to be alive. Every once in awhile I find myself, because of a song, or a video, […]

I just watched this video on Facebook after a friend posted it. It made me tear up. Love is love, people. Plain and simple. It brings joy and laughter and happiness to all who experience and witness it. There is no more powerful force on the planet than the love we feel for each other. […]

Missing people just plain sucks. I’m sad.  I just finished watching a video about the School of Piano Technology in Vancouver, Washington.  And no, pianos themselves don’t make me sad, just in case you were wondering.  What just made me sad was missing my dad. My relationship with my dad was… complicate

I’m sentimental, empathetic, and very in tune with the feelings of others.  Always have been.  It’s the thing that makes me cry during silly commercials, sporting events, and when I hear a song on the radio that makes me think of someone I love.  I feel things deeply.  All things.  Sometimes this makes it h

We can be a divisive country.  Throw politics and religion into the mix of any conversation and it’s likely people will not agree on something.  It’s our passion and our conviction that makes us so.   In those moments of disagreement we are also not always our better selves.  We point fingers, call names, an
