Where is Here?

For as much as I fear change I have seen from the eyes of this blog, the most remarkable forms of evolution a single human being can go through. I remember the day of my first post and seemingly never ending multitude of ideas pouring forth from my mind. I wrote with a passion and […]

Shoulder surgery update

I have meant to post an update (several progress reports, actually) since surgery.  Unfortunately, I have had complications which has, at times, brought me to my knees.  It has been difficult.  Due to my inability to tolerate any prescribed pain medication, I’ve had to grit my teeth and push through physical therapy on my own.

Shoulder Surgery Recovery

It must have been fate that I read this blog post from Lynn’s Weigh this evening. I haven’t read my usual blogs for well over a year – since I began painting full-time. Yet here I was, feeling sorry for myself, wasting time about the Internet and came across the title of your Lynn’s blog in my […]

Trying to wait patiently while awaiting surgery

My surgery date has been set for January 26 – exactly 2 1/2 weeks from now. While I am doing a pretty decent job at being quite ‘Zen’ about it, the fact remains that I wish it would just get here so that I can begin healing. How does one patiently await a surgery when […]

Setting forth good intentions before shoulder surgery

You’ve made it through Thanksgiving, Christmas parties, family get-togethers, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve. That’s a lot of socializing in two short months, so I hope you are getting your selves a break and patting herself on the back for a job well done on this New Year’s day, 2015. I for one have […]

Vegan Lemon Raspberry Muffins

With the holidays in full swing, I’ve been doing quite a bit of baking lately. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m just using the holidays as an excuse – I’d create my own holiday if it gave me a reason to bake! (National Eraser Day? Why, that’s a perfect occasion for some muffins, yes?) I will […]

Me, a Comic Book Girl?

The time changed last night and I’m sitting here wondering how I will handle it these next two weeks.  Whenever we ‘fall-back’ I REALLY fall back – as in, hitting the ground hard and then just rolling over to take a nap.  It takes a couple of weeks for me to adjust, this business of […]

Opportunities for Growth – bound half lotus tip-toe pose

When I used to take my golden retriever to our local nursing home I quickly noticed who the most popular residents were.  They were the people whom always had a smile on their face, were pleasant to talk to and who chatted about things other than their health or how horrible their room was.  These […]
