Life is a dance, Full of joy, sorrow and grace. Sometimes we feel like doing a reel, And sometimes we feel like dancing in place. We never know what music will come, As we dance through this thing we call life, But if we keep dancing and give it our all, We'll find in the … Continue reading Dancing Through Life
I saw this idea/suggestion on the dVerse blog yesterday and it completely intrigued me so I thought I'd give it a go. Also, today is my oldest son's birthday so in light of that, I thought I'd attempt an Etheree style poem about the day he was born. We had been laboring for hours, you … Continue reading Memories Never Forgotten, An Etheree Poem
Autumn has arrived in beautiful Colorado as well as the northern hemisphere and it is just gorgeous this year! Autumn is my favorite season, I must admit.

This year, I'm not certain how many inches we've received, but I know we're well over double that amount if not nearing triple that amount.

I've watched a video of a nun visiting great art of the 20th century and heard her describe the … Continue reading No Wise Words to Say–NaPoWriMo Day 9
Money. Simple money. Figures on a bank app show we have enough. Enough to pay our bills, buy our food, and even, fortunately, and thank God, enough to share with others. Are we rich? No. Put us on an American class scale and we'd tilt the scales to middle middle class. Not rich. Not poor. … Continue reading Money and Henry the Rooster–NaPoWriMo Day 7

One thing that many people don't know or understand about fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome is that often the people diagnosed with the syndrome appear to have normal, even very high activity levels. From the outside, everything seems status quo, even to the person who has fibromyalgia. Often, I'll find … Continue reading Catching Up With Myself

I awoke all vim and vigor, the day would be full of fun! I'd run away to the mountains, and devil may care I'd be; heck the way I was feeling, I could drive from sea to sea! Alas, a few hours in, before I even started, my vim began to dim, and my vigor … Continue reading Happier Day Ever After
