A Month of Prompts

Amanda, of MagnoliaYogaBr , sent out her first newsletter with monthly prompts in quite a few years. I’m so excited!!! Yesterday the prompt was “Perfect Day”. And it was! Mornings have taken on a routine, starting with feeding the cat, then then dogs, and now the crows and the birds. The crows came back toContinue reading “A Month of Prompts”

Calgon Isn’t Helping Anymore

Found this on Instagram: View this post on Instagram Brand-new cards are online now!!! I feel this one SO HARD. Really, we have to worry about this now on top of all the other shit we have to do? I OBJECT. My doctor friend told me she had to miss the hospital’s personal branding workshopContinue reading “Calgon Isn’t Helping Anymore”

The Filofax Itch

…and other non-Filofax thoughts. At the end of last year I wasn’t in the position to purchase new Filofax inserts, so I picked up a planner at Walgreens. It’s about 5×7, has big pages and print…and the pages fit perfectly in my A5 Filofax Chameleon. Every time I open the planner, I have the urgeContinue reading “The Filofax Itch”

Comfortcrafter

Say what? I’ll tell you! Early January I came across a cozy mystery called, “Some Like It Witchy” by Heather Blake.

A magical village, literally.Continue reading “Comfortcrafter”

Dear Diary…

Did you catch the subheading change on my title page? I’ve been introspective this week, and reading day-to-day life blogs have been my interest. Real life, no selling, more communication. And as this is my favorite blog of the 3 I have, I’m going to write that way here. More like LiveJournal, but more public.Continue reading “Dear Diary…”

Rereading “Second Sight”

A few years ago I read Judith Orloff’s book, Second Sight, and I recently borrowed it from the library again. This is one of those books that, when I start doubting myself, brings me right back to knowing that I’m doing what I do exactly the way that it is supposed to be done. ThatContinue reading “Rereading “Second Sight””

What is Distance Healing?

Good question. A few years ago, while reading Sea of Miracles by Amy Oscar, I came upon mention of “Indra’s Net” and the concept really struck home: “In the realm of the god Indra is a vast net that stretches infinitely in all directions. In each “eye” of the net is a single brilliant, perfect jewel.Continue reading “What is Distance Healing?”

Boosting An Independent Bookstore’s Signal

I once had my dream job: I worked at a small, independently owned used-books store*. It’s the coolest place: a converted house with a couple of add-ons to the back, making it an L-shaped warren of rooms. I had that job for 9 years and 10 months. Yes, even after 10 years, I remember theContinue reading “Boosting An Independent Bookstore’s Signal”
