The Coronavirus. Everyone is talking about it. It’s the favorite topic of news and social media, and the panicked motivation behind the toilet paper craze. A pandemic that has “taken over the world” in every sense of the phrase. A dumbfounding amount of ridiculous behavior has resulted from this “unprecedented event”, and it’s been giving…
Warmer weather has arrived and I’m glad it’s here.
I’ve got breezy spring weather, breezy spring attire, and breezy blonde hair on the brain.
Just kidding, I don’t really want to be BLONDE-blonde again, I’ve just been in the mood to lighten and freshen up for the new season. Bring out natural highlights and whatnot.
So I’ve started doing chamomile tea rinses and sprays, and maybe by summer I’ll look a tad bit like a sun-kissed goddess.
“January is the month for dreaming.” – Jean Hersey I came across this quote a couple years ago and thought it really fit. I’ve been “dreaming” all this month, as I usually do in January, but it’s especially significant and the focus this year. This is the most positive, most hopeful mindset I’ve been in…
One of the most terrifying things about life is how fast time flies. It’s scary to think about how it feels like 2019 just recently got here and we’re already at the tail end of November.It scares me even more knowing that every year seems to go by quicker and quicker, and every late December…
For the last day of July, I’m closing out with more mystic “food for thought.” I came across this tarot spread idea on Facebook a couple months ago and considered trying it out. I’m very sporadic with using my cards, and yesterday I finally got myself to do it. It’s me we’re talking about, so…
It was something I was used to doing every year – visiting my grandparents’ grave. It’s been an annual family tradition of ours to each year visit the veterans’ cemetery and have a picnic lunch afterwards. The “afterwards” has always been my favorite part, because, although I never wanted to seem disrespectful or uncaring, I…
“Sometimes I feel like there’s a hole inside of me, an emptiness that at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, you could probably hear the ocean. And the moon tonight, there’s a circle around it. A sign of trouble not far behind. I have this dream of being whole. Of not going to sleep each night, wanting. But still, sometimes, when the wind is warm or the crickets sing, I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me. I want to be seen. I don’t know…maybe I had my happiness. I don’t want to believe it, but, there is no man, Gilly. Only that moon.”
On Midsummer Day
My heart gave way
And buckled under once more
It began to rain
From my gloomy eyes
As it did so the night before
Silently I worked and wept
And made it through the Midsummer morn
Inside, the clouds were darkening still
Like those in a May spring storm
They say “Home is where the heart is” and this is a phrase I absolutely agree with. For me, however, it’s also “The heart is where home is” and that seems to be a rarity in these days and times. To be that woman devoted to the well-being of her home and family has for…
