Too Much Darkness

Media pushes buttons
Setting tempers ablaze
To remain neutral and kind
Is hard these days

Where are we as a people
Do we really know
Do we want to hurt each other
Or is the vitriol just a show

Am I living in a movie
Where society has gone wrong
Please tell me we’re being fooled
that humans are really caring and strong

I recently discovered Twitter. Yeah, I know, I’m late to the party. But boy, I thought Facebook was bad with the vitriol. I found Twitter even worse!



Simply Summer

The day after Memorial Day and for the rest of that week, I became scarce online. Do you know why? It was my wedding anniversary and we went to check out a cascade.


Making Friends

People Office Co-workers Team Teamwork BusinessBlogging is so much better than facebook and twitter, at least for me. I’m not a fan of expressing myself in 140 characters, nor do I care for tons of propaganda on a wall. I like to interact both in person and through some internet venues like this one. I enjoy having people comment and making friends. I especially like having this safe place where we can go without feeling torn apart, but can find things to relate to one another. (more…)

Writer’s A.D.D.

laptopwritingI’m pleased to say that I’ve been writing and editing again. So, this isn’t going to be one of my longer, philosophical posts. Well, maybe . . . because I seem to get easily distracted. I don’t have A.D.D. in regular life, so what the heck happens when I’m writing?

Am I the only author that does this?


Lost in a Blog Fog

I just crossed my three year blog anniversary over Christmas. When I first started, I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it and became addicted! Over time, many of my wonderful blogging friends took breaks from the blog world (some left altogether). Even though I missed them, I blogged all the more. I rarely can pull myself away from typing out blog drafts and visiting other blogs. I mean, what if I miss something awesome?
