Backing Away

How's everyone doing? Boy, it's been a tough week, hasn't it? It's been, at the very least, anxiety-inducing. So, in order to try to preserve what's left of my sanity, I am beginning a new relationship with social media. I've been fairly active on Twitter since I joined in 2010, which has been both good… Continue reading Backing Away

My WordPress-iversary

Wow, I registered with WP 8 years ago. Eight years. Holy smokes. I started with my Wandering Mind blog back then, mostly chronicling my bicycle adventures. That blog has lain dormant for many years now while I've focused on writing and Tarot (on the Dangling Pentacles Tarot blog), which admittedly has been more active recently… Continue reading My WordPress-iversary

Did You Say Something?

Umm, this is a little embarrassing, but I think I may have deleted a legitimate comment from someone. You know how it is, you're going through the spam, clicking madly to dump all those ads for Christian Louboutins  or Viagra, or something, and then all of a sudden, just as you click delete you see… Continue reading Did You Say Something?


Dangling Pentacles

Some of you may have noticed the Dangling Pentacles blog is down. I had purchased the domain, but wrongly thought that when the subscription ran out, the title would revert to one of the URL’s that included the word ‘wordpress’ in it. It does not. To renew now would cost me more than setting up… Continue reading Dangling Pentacles

Don’t Let Anybody Squash You

Because first off, you're not a bug. We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little.- Anne Lamott I was dismayed this morning when another blogger mentioned that someone had tried to tell… Continue reading Don’t Let Anybody Squash You
