Summer Solstice

The past weeks have been…I don’t really think there is a word for it. I’m sure another language has the perfect word for being horrified, despairing, raging, and heartbroken all in one, but I don’t know what it is. Today, though, today is the solstice. When we have the longest day of the year. TonsContinue reading “Summer Solstice”

Challenge Accepted

I know this may come as a surprise, but the purpose of having a blog is to, well, blog. I know, right?? Who knew?¬†ūü§£¬†I’ll be spending the next 6 weeks or so (until May 1) focusing all my attention here, on my blog. Blogging. No Twitter, no Tumblr, no Instagram commenting…just blogging.

Pulling Focus and Having Fun

My dear writer/Browncoat friend, Claudia told me, “Start with the places where *you* enjoy hanging out, and that have a platform conducive to your message. Learn it, play.” Light bulb!! She totally nailed the key that I’d been missing all this time:¬†I need fun. Too serious and I’m all, “UGH! Again??” “Should” and “have to”Continue reading “Pulling Focus and Having Fun”

I Created a Tarot Spread!

It’s quick, easy, and I’m calling it, “Pip’s Short and Sweet Spread” (I think everyone who creates card spreads should include their name so credit can be given, don’t you?).

Everything you see and watch gives the impression that one cannot fully enjoy a holiday without a drink in one’s hand…well, I’m here today to do just that.Continue reading “Holidays, Drinking, and Donations”

A Smack Upside the Head

…and gratitude. Extreme gratitude. You know that one friend you have, the one who lays down the law in such a way that it’s as if a thunderbolt when through you, completely changing how you look at things? The one that puts that final puzzle piece in the picture you knew was missing some thing,Continue reading “A Smack Upside the Head”

Contemplation

I’ve been thinking recently of dropping this blog, not because I don’t love it, but with regards to bringing clients and how that doesn’t happen. ¬†Seemed a waste of time, which I don’t have much of to spend online anymore. ¬†Over the past few days I’ve been tweeting with Joanna Powell Colbert¬†(creator of the GaianContinue reading “Contemplation”
